NEW WEBSITE COMING IN 2013 Kansas’ best community newspaper six years running

A

fter another successful year in 2012, the Atchison Globe has bigger plans in store for 2013. To start, the Globe is planning to launch a completely remodeled website, with the kickoff date sometime in late spring-early summer. The new site, which is being designed using market research and nationally established industry best practices, is supposed to allow for ease of surfing with the reader in mind. As big a change as it promises to be for online readers, the biggest change will be philosophically in how the news and sports coverage is delivered. “Currently we are in a Wednesday/Saturday mind set,” said Globe editor and publisher Joe Warren. “We focus our efforts around a twice-a-week production schedule designed to make our print edition the best it can be.” “As the landscape and reading habits of news consumers change, we need to adapt. Instead of seeing ourselves as a twice-a-week newspaper, we need to see ourselves as a 24/7 news organization.” He said the change will mean more timely online updates as news breaks, with more emphasis on utilizing social media and multiple platforms. “Eventually, we want to have more video, better and more variety of photo galleries, and the sky is the limit as far as how much we could reshape our coverage,” he said. The Globe office is in the process of receiving the hardware and software upgrades necessary to make this conversion, and Warren said the idea is to take advantage of the newspaper’s strengths. With six consecutive Kansas Press Association sweepstakes awards as the best weekly newspaper in its circulation category, the Globe staff hopes to proA screen shot of the new Atchison Globe website: Atchison Daily Globe Online.

City continues moving forward By ADAM GARDNER Atchison Globe

Crossing a bridge doesn’t signify the end of the journey for a traveler; rather it is part of the traveler’s progress forward in the journey. Like a traveler on a bridge, the city of Atchison is moving forward on a long journey. In the rearview mirror are signs of progress from 2012. Dilapidated homes were torn down with the goal of making Atchison more attractive. Changes were made to the requirements for obtaining and keeping a scrapping license. No longer are scrap materials allowed in residential areas, further beautifying the community. Improvements were made to the Atchison Fire Department, including new, high efficiency doors and windows that hadn’t been upgraded since 1971, as well as a new fire truck, which replaced a truck from 1982. As part of a Combined Sewer Overflow system agreement with the state of Kansas and the Environmental Protection Agency, city commissioners chose to upgrade the water treatment plant by introducing ozone – the

strongest disinfectant available for bacteria and pathogens – as well as a strong oxidant at two points in the system, which will improve the color, clarity, taste and overall quality of water in Atchison. And then there was the opening of the new Amelia Earhart Memorial Bridge, an opening 16 years in the making. But the city of Atchison isn’t finished on its journey. While decisions were made about what to do with the water system last year, this year brings actual action. “I feel like last year we did a lot of foundation work,” said Trey Cocking, city manager. “This year we’ll have a lot of upgrades to the water system.” Those upgrades include a new storage tank at the water treatment plant that Cocking said will greatly aid in the event of an emergency situation, helping the city avoid boil orders like in recent years. There will also be a new VFW pump station in place sometime this summer, which will supply water to Rural Water District No. 5. Renovations to the Heritage Conference Center are likely to begin

A new roof, a new heating and cooling system and new windows will help preserve the life of the building, according to Cocking. The city will also address a deteriorating roadway, resurfacing U.S. Highway 59, beginning at the new bridge to the western city limits. The pilot project for new trash

pickup has been deemed successful and is moving forward. It looks like soon the entire town will have trash carts that will be picked up by an automated truck, and eventually recycling as well. The city of Atchison continues its progress forward, and will continue on its journey, crossing whatever bridges might come up.

I can’t imagine anything better than promoting the community that you love.

Much of our focus is on tourism and welcoming visitors to the Atchison area. We work to bring outside dollars to the economy by hosting events that will encourage visitors.

Atchison County schools jump into new territory By KATY MOORE Atchison Globe

A

tchison County schools are trekking into new territory in the education system this year. With such programs as the 1-to1 iPad initiative – adopted at both USD 377 and USD 409 – students in Atchison County are taking education into their own hands, at a height they’ve never experienced before. Atchison High School students are in their first year of using iPads during class, and having just approved their own initiative, Eff-

ingham junior/senior high students should be iPad-savvy by the end of spring. Providing students the means to research and explore ideas to their heart’s content, and find answers to all their questions with the touch of a key – not to mention significantly decreasing their backpack weight – will revolutionize Atchison County education in the months and years to come. Combining this advancement in education with a new horizon in teaching methods, USD 409 is currently assimilating the Common Core Curriculum Standards within its educational program. Celebrating encouraging state assessment

scores from the 2011-12 testing period, the district looks forward to this new system that will evolve classroom time from simple note-taking to student collaboration, exploration, investigation and problem solving. Easy access to endless information through the new iPads will be one large factor to student success in the new CCCS system. In addition to state-of-the-art technology, USD 377 is taking steps to ensure students get the best education by instituting a new evaluation system for those who facilitate that education. Administrators have approved the McRel Teacher Evaluation System, which will com-

prehensively assess each district teacher, letting staff know exactly where they are in terms of successfully instructing their students, and improvements they can make to their individual teaching methods. Accompanying the new system will be the McRel Power Walkthrough Program, online software that uses brief classroom observations to enlighten teachers about achieving higher levels of performance and progress. The district also formed a facilities planning team, comprised of staff, parents and community members, to help board members Please see SCHOOLS/Page 20

nificant changes. A new patio was added to Cray Seaberg Hall this past summer and a new men’s residence hall was opened for the fall. St. Michael Hall, a three-story, 40,000-square-foot structure, occupies the site of the former Atchison Hospital and houses 151 sophomore and junior men. After adding lights and field turf in the last few years, additional improvements were made to the soccer field on the south part of campus. Fans enjoyed new outdoor-accessible facilities and a concession stand this past season. And the new John Casey Press Box, which also includes new locker room facilities and offices, is nearing completion and will be ready for use in the fall. In addition, the press box at Larry Wilcox Stadium was also renovated and updated. The college also added new curbing and new curb paint to the campus roadways and all asphalt roads and parking lots were refreshed. Technology updates include expanded wireless access in many residence hall rooms and academic buildings across campus and tripled Internet bandwidth. In the Ralph Nolan Gymnasium, site of many varsity and intramural games, as well as the Opening Convocation and Commencement Exercises, the college replaced the antiquated sound system. Now everything from game announcements to keynote speeches and special presentations are clearly audible. Moving forward, plans are already underway for a new recreation center to be built in the heart of campus. As enrollment has expanded, the college has found itself falling behind in adequately providing exercise and

Progress continues to be evident on the campus of Benedictine College, probably more so this year than ever before. The college continues to add more programs and set records for enrollment, but this year two major buildings – St. Michael Hall and Ferrell Academic Center – were opened. In addition, the $50 million “Investing in Excellence” campaign concluded at the end of 2011, ultimately bringing in more than $70 million, adding thousands of new donors and doubling the college endowment. March 2012 signaled the beginning of the Benedictine 2020 strategic plan and progress on all fronts, including technology, academics, athletics and student life, has been immediate. Benedictine College continues toward its vision of being one of the great Catholic colleges in America. The state-of-the-art Ferrell Academic Center on the bluff was dedicated in October and houses the School of Business, the Education Department, the Theology Department and the Philosophy Department. The new building is a focal point, completing the academic quad on the east side of campus and offering spectacular views of the Missouri River valley from the fourthfloor meeting and event space. The additional academic space has positioned the college for growth and excellence for years to come. On top of that, a feasibility study is already underway for the renovation and expansion of Westerman Hall, which houses biology, chemistry and physics classrooms and labs, as well as the Engineering Department and mathematics. The Second Street corridor across from the college continues to see sig-

fter another successful year in 2012, the Atchison Globe has bigger plans in store for 2013. To start, the Globe is planning to launch a completely remodeled website, with the kickoff date sometime in late spring-early summer. The new site, which is being designed using market research and nationally established industry best practices, is supposed to allow for ease of surfing with the reader in mind. As big a change as it promises to be for online readers, the biggest change will be philosophically in how the news and sports coverage is delivered. “Currently we are in a Wednesday/Saturday mind set,” said Globe editor and publisher Joe Warren. “We focus our efforts around a twice-a-week production schedule designed to make our print edition the best it can be.” “As the landscape and reading habits of news consumers change, we need to adapt. Instead of seeing ourselves as a twice-a-week newspaper, we need to see ourselves as a 24/7 news organization.” He said the change will mean more timely online updates as news breaks, with more emphasis on utilizing social media and multiple platforms. “Eventually, we want to have more video, better and more variety of photo galleries, and the sky is the limit as far as how much we could reshape our coverage,” he said. The Globe office is in the process of receiving the hardware and software upgrades necessary to make this conversion, and Warren said the idea is to take advantage of the newspaper’s strengths. With six consecutive Kansas Press Association sweepstakes awards as the best weekly newspaper in its circulation category, the Globe staff hopes to proA screen shot of the new Atchison Globe website: Atchison Daily Globe Online.
