"In the summer of 2013, The BARN began as a dream, a wish to create a better future.

We are an active rescue that is NOT a 501 (c) 3 (YET). We are currently in the process of filing paperwork and arranging all that is needed to continue helping animals in the capacity we are now and grow to help even more in the near future!

We are currently working with private donations and the help of community resources from like minded individuals."

Quoted from "The B.A.R.N." Website www.thebarnrescue.com

Basically we would love to get word out about animals and their amazing abilities. We already offer so many things that help our fellow neighbors and their furry family.

However between the legal fees to become licensed and the number of people that need us, we are running (Quickly) out of resources to help.

Could you please put this on the news? The more people that come, the more donations we get, the more help we can give.

I do not want to be on camera, but I would be willing to do a phone interview.

Thank you so much and God Bless. <3

Washburn Tech
Washburn Tech is holding its 15th annual Car Show, BBQ and Fair from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Friday, May 9, on the Washburn Tech campus at 5724 S.W. Huntoon St. The public is invited to the event, which is a fundraiser for the Washburn Tech Care Closet.

Auto enthusiasts will enjoy the five show entry classes: custom/low riders, antique cars and trucks, muscle cars, motorcycles and special interest. For those who’d rather fly or climb than drive, the Kansas Air National Guard is bringing a helicopter simulator and the U.S. Army is setting up a climbing wall. The event offers a carnival atmosphere which includes a dunk tank, a heavy equipment rodeo, a car bash, the golf ball contest and even 3 vs. 3 basketball.

In addition, Recycled Rides will give away a refurbished vehicle to a family in need at 9:00 a.m. in the Auto Collision lab on the east side of campus. This marks the eighth car donated by Washburn Tech’s Recycled Rides program.

The Care Closet, now in its 26th year of operation, provides short-term financial assistance to Washburn tech students who need help to complete their education. Aid can take the form of gas money, bus fare or a bag of groceries.

Washburn Tech offers 30 career programs in one of five divisions: Construction, Health Care, Human Services, Technology and Transportation. Short-term, continuing education courses also are available along with custom courses for business and industry. Washburn Tech, which serves both high school and adult students, has an 81% graduation rate which is the highest in the state among all universities, community colleges and technical institutions.

About the Movie:
Set in Rome A.D. 67, two jailers at the ancient Mamertine Prison take custody of a famous criminal. He is Simon Peter of Galilee – apostle, disciple and personal friend of Jesus, also called the Christ. Condemned to death, the elderly Peter (Robert Loggia) recounts his life as a simple fisherman who became one of the boldest figures in all of Christianity. As Peter prepares to depart this earthly life, he will make an unforgettable impression on his jailers through the saving power of the Gospel.
