STRIKE Upthe BAND A look into one of the city’s oldest — and favorite — traditions.

E

very Wednesday evening during the summertime, area residents come together at South Park to enjoy one of Lawrence’s oldest traditions — the Lawrence City Band. The band has performed in South Park for about 40 years in the gazebo that is more than 100 years old. However, the band’s tradition goes much further back in history. Its roots can be traced to when the first emigrants settled in the territory. Four men brought along two cornets, a bugle and a fife, playing music along the journey to the Kansas Territory. “People from New England brought instruments on their wagons,” said Robert Foster, who has been the band’s conductor for more than 10 years and played in the band for 30 years before then. “They were able to start making music in Lawrence as soon as they unloaded the wagons. The band grew from there just like the city grew.” Grow, it did. Today, the band is composed

of 55 area residents, from students in high school to those in their 70s. Concerts occur Wednesdays at 8 p.m. A one-hour practice session precedes each concert, the only time the band will practice before performing each week. “It’s kind of awesome to play in the band,” Robert Friauf said. Friauf, a retired University of Kansas professor, has played clarinet in the band for about 35 years. “You learn to show up on time and pay attention. You can’t stop too often, even to work on tough spots. It’s sort of breathtaking.” Lawrence native Jade Brown remembers the City Band from his childhood. This summer will be Brown’s fifth year playing saxophone in the band. Brown said he joined the band because he wanted to play the classical repertoire of pieces with other talented musicians. “They are so good at what they do,” Brown said of the band members. “It’s nice to play with a group that can sit down and basically sight-read through difficult literature and then

sit down and play a concert.” While Brown plays music for himself, he said his favorite part of being in the band is seeing all the people who come out to the concerts. He likes seeing kids running around the park having fun while parents sit on lawn chairs, listen to the show, drink lemonade and chat with one another. “I think we as a society have fallen back in the walls of our home,” Brown said. “We’re not as engaged with our neighbors and our community as we used to be. To have a community event where everyone comes together at a common place to listen to the music is a great thing.” For Friauf, the concerts are nostalgic, evoking feelings of a simpler, less worrisome time. “It’s pure Americana,” Friauf said. “The bandstand, the city park, the crowd gathered on the lawn. It’s Midwest America at its best in the summertime.”


It’s pure Americana. The bandstand, the city park, the crowd gathered on the lawn. It’s Midwest America at its best in the summertime.”

Robert Friauf Esprit de corps Though the band members are different ages, hold varied occupations and come from diverse backgrounds, they all have one thing in common — their dedication to the City Band. “You can tell there’s an esprit de corps between the band,” Friauf said. However, this “esprit de corps” — common spirit of comradeship, enthusiasm and devotion to a cause among the members of a group — doesn’t stop with the band’s roster. The value of the band to the community and its history is recognized by all the residents who attend the concerts. Brown has played in other bands and in other venues, and he always noticed certain types of people going to certain types of shows. But the summer concerts in the park seem to transcend the specific styles of music people like, he said. “The thing about this band that really sets it apart is the community involvement at such a grassroots level,” Brown said. “It pulls in a lot of people from a lot of different areas and backgrounds that wouldn’t usually come together.” Not only are the band concerts a perfect setting for area residents to come together as a whole, it’s a place to reflect on Lawrence’s founding, history and present day. “I think it’s a link to the history of the city,” Brown said. “It’s a way for the older crowd to keep the community bond alive, and for the younger people, it’s a gateway to the community. It shows what our community can be and what it was.”

Those four men who brought their instruments to Kansas continued to regularly play music for the settlers. They played at weddings, funerals and birthdays, and on warm summer nights. Their instruments, which surely showed the wear of several years and a strenuous journey, were replaced in 1863, purchased with funds donated by the community members who enjoyed the music. The first concert played with the new instruments occurred one evening in late August, greatly enjoyed by all who attended. The day after the band concert marked Quantrill’s Raid, also known as the Lawrence Massacre. The guerilla attack by Missourian confederates resulted in 200 deaths and a destroyed city. Three of the band members were among those who were killed. “There have always been trials and tribulations that have happened,” Brown said. “The music helps us remember and honor times and people that have gone by. It also serves to remind us where we are and what we can do as a community to make it better.” Budget woes A major portion of the funding for the band comes from the city. While the band is funded through this year, the current economic situation could make it difficult for the city to continue providing funds. “I have people stop me on the streets and say they are concerned about the band concerts,” Foster said. “They ask if there is even going to be a concert.”

Lawrence Parks and Recreation funds the band through monies it receives from a state excise tax. Ernie Shaw, interim director of the department, said because the state is in as tough an economic situation as the city, it could create new legislation to keep the tax revenue rather than giving it to the city. Shaw understands the value of the band to the community. But there simply isn’t enough money to go around. Many Parks and Recreation programs are self-supported, meaning user fees cover the cost of the programs. While special events such as the band concerts are important to the city, they don’t bring in any revenue. “When money gets tight, that’s what we have to start looking at,” Shaw said. “How do we continue these types of events without cutting into the priority programs?” In development of the 2010 budget, the department was requested to explore the possibility of outside fundraising to provide assistance to the band concert series. In response to this request, the department’s Marketing Division has implemented a sponsorship program for businesses to help support the band while gaining advertising recognition. Businesses can sponsor individual concerts throughout the summer and will get benefits for their sponsorships, including recognition at the concert and on all promotional materials. Citizens wishing to donate can contact Roger Steinbrock, marketing supervisor, by calling 785-832-3450 or visiting the Administrative Office at 947 New Hampshire St., Suite 200B, Lawrence, KS 66044.

Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department’s Aquatics Division provides a safe and inviting environment accessible to the community. Through responsible use of public and private dollars, we strive for a professional staff that is dedicated to providing excellent customer service while maintaining the highest quality of aquatic programming and facilities available. LPRD Aquatics — the city’s largest provider of aquatic activities — offers four facilities of splashing excitement, fun and fitness for every member of the family. Thrill seekers can challenge one of our exciting waterslides, such as the new drop slide at the Outdoor Aquatic Center. Daring riders take a nearly vertical plunge down a steep chute, reaching breathtaking speeds before being shot like a cannon to “free-fall” into the water below. The Indoor Aquatic Center boasts a 145-foot waterslide that brings all the thrills of a traditional water park inside for year-round fun. Guests of all ages are drawn to the fun of the zero-depth “beaches” featured at the Indoor and Outdoor Aquatic centers, as well as the South Park Wading Pool. All the fun of the beach without getting sand in your

pants! Hide behind a curtain of water in the Rain Drop, or get soaked by the spray of a gigantic daisy, a silly spittin’ snake or one of several different water fountains. Kids will have a blast testing their balance on the Log Slice Scoot and the Lily Pad Path. Try to tackle the fierce floating dragon or make new friends on one of the mini-slides or floating animals. Swimming for fitness and safety is our top priority! That’s why each facility offers a unique aquatic experience with something for everyone. Year-round programs like Learn-to-Swim courses, aquatic fitness classes, aquatic training courses and special family events provide educational, fun and diverse leisure opportunities for the whole family. Mom and Dad can have fun, too! Relax in a complimentary lounge chair in the shade while enjoying a cold Pepsi from our full-line cafe concession stands. All this in a fun, family-oriented community water park. The Aquatics Division offices are located on the second floor of the Indoor Aquatic Center, 4706 Overland Drive, 832-SWIM (7946).

Learn-to-swim classes Tips for placing Your child in the right lesson Most children remain in the same level for two or more sessions. It is also easier to move children up a level than to move them down a level. Swim lesson staff make the final decision in the placement of children into the most appropriate class level based on their skill. Note to parents/guardians LPRD wants your child to participate in its Learn-to-Swim program. We do ask for student cooperation and attention when attending class. It is our goal to provide each child with equal time and attention by staff. If a child doesn’t want to enter the water or doesn’t cooperate with staff, parents/guardians are asked to work with the supervisor in charge to seek resolution. We ask each participant to be on time and attend every lesson. Each lesson contains new material that is vital to success in the class. We also ask parents/guardians to have patience, be positive and give praise. It is important to give children additional time to practice outside of class. The more practice time children receive, the more successful they will be in swimming lessons. Makeup lessons Makeup swim lessons will be held only if the LPRD staff makes the cancellation. There are no makeup days for lessons missed for personal reasons. Waiting lists Waiting lists for each section will only be formed when programs are filled. Those on the waiting lists will be contacted in the order that they were placed on the list, if and when an opening becomes available.

SWIM LESSON DESCRIPTIONS All of the levels contain age/level-appropriate safety skills. To complete a level, the participant must be able to complete all skills and exit skills assessments. Parent/Child (PNTCHILD) (Ages 6 months-3 years): The foundation of the American Red Cross Parent and Child class is a set of basic skills that prepares young children to be comfortable in the water. This class will not make your child an independent swimmer; instead, this class will prepare your child to enter the Learn-to-Swim program. Skills learned include getting adjusted to the water environment; showing comfort in both front and back positions with assistance; submerging with assistance; and changing body positions in the water. Aqua Tots Swim (3-year-olds): This class bridges the Parent/Child class to the Learn-to-Swim program and is designed for preschool-age children who have never been in a swim class but are ready to hold onto the wall and be in a pool without a parent. This class focuses on the fundamentals of freestyle and floating. In order to move to the next class, students must be comfortable putting their face in the water for three or more seconds. Preschool (PRSCHOOL) (4-year-olds): Preschool Aquatics teaches age-appropriate water and safety skills in a positive, logical progression beginning with fundamental water safety and aquatic skills. Skills learned in this level are the same fundamental skills that are taught in levels 1 and 2 of the Learn-to-Swim program. These skills include independent water entry, front and back glides, and combined arm and leg actions in the water. Children are required to stay in the Preschool program until they turn 5 years of age.

Level 1 (5-6-year-olds): Participants work on comfort in the water and entering and exiting the pool by themselves. Skills learned include blowing bubbles and getting the head and face wet; floating on front and back with support and recovering to a standing position; and alternating and simultaneous arm and leg motion on front and back. Level 2 (5-7-year-olds): Skills learned include front and back floats unsupported for 5 seconds with recovery to a standing position; front and back glides for two body lengths; and combined arm and leg actions on front and back for 15 feet. Level 3: Skills learned include survival and back floats and treading water for 30 seconds; front and back glides with two different kicks; and combined arm and leg actions on front and back for 15 feet. Level 4: Improve on skills and increase endurance on strokes learned in previous levels, including front and back crawl for 25 yards, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, sidestroke with scissors kick and butterfly for 15 yards. Skills learned include head-first entries, survival swimming and treading water using two kicks. Level 5: Increased endurance, coordination and refinement of strokes; front crawl, back crawl, butterfly, breaststroke, elementary backstroke, sidestroke and flip turns. Level 6: Refine strokes so students swim with more ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances. Skills learned include introduction to other aquatic activities; areas of focus include Personal Water Safety, Diving and Fitness Swimming. Each option focuses on preparing students to participate in other advanced aquatic courses. Adult: This swim program has a little bit for everyone. Did you always wish you had learned to swim as a child? Well, it is never too late to get started. The purpose of this level is what YOU want to get out of it. For some that may mean personal safety; for others it may be learning to swim the basic strokes to be used for fitness swimming. Your needs will be discussed at the beginning of class, and the class will be geared toward meeting your personal goals.

Adult 2: Do you already know how to swim but would like to swim with more efficiency and endurance? Adult 2 is targeted to those individuals who have basic swimming skills and want to swim for fitness or increase their endurance and stroke proficiency for triathlons.

Junior Swim (JRSWIM): Are you between the ages of 9 and 16? Have you always wanted to learn to swim, but never have? If you feel too old to be in a traditional Level 1, 2 or 3 class, this is the course for you. Junior swim is targeted toward those individuals between the ages of 9 and 16 that would like to overcome their fear of the water and learn the basic skills needed to be safe and enjoy the water. Water Safety Instructor Aide (WSI AIDE): Provides training to candidates who wish to assist American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors in teaching the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program.

Private Swimming Lessons Is there an instructor your child would like to spend a little more time with in one-on-one instruction? Whether your child needs to improve a stroke or skill, or you would just like the individual attention of one instructor, we have a program for you. Many of our certified instructors are available to teach private lessons at our facilities. They are available on a weekly basis during times that public swimming lessons are NOT being held. The cost is $15 per 30-minute session. We offer only American Red Cross-certified Water Safety Instructors for all of our classes. However, the American Red Cross does not sanction these classes or curriculum for private lessons. Registration for private lessons is only available at the LIAC. Please call 832-SWIM for more information.

Eagle Bend Golf Course & Learning Center 1250 E. 902 Road (below Clinton Lake Dam), (785) 748-0600 For information and questions regarding golf, contact John Morris, golf operations supervisor, at jmorris@ci.lawrence.ks.us. Eagle Bend is owned and operated by the city of Lawrence’s Parks and Recreation Department. The city received the land through a lease with the Army Corps of Engineers. Eagle Bend is designed along the Wakarusa River channel located below the Clinton Reservoir Dam. As a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary program for golf courses, Eagle Bend is dedicated to continuing the preservation of the environment and habitat of wildlife. Much wildlife inhabits Eagle Bend, including rabbits, red foxes, coyotes, deer, quail, blue heron, muskrats, turtles, eagles, hawks, Canadian geese, woodpeckers, fish and snakes. The first six holes on the course are open with few trees. The remaining holes are heavily wooded and sit in the shadow of the Wakarusa River. The bald eagle is indigenous to the area and played a major role in the naming of the course. During its construction, bald eagle sightings were plentiful and can still be seen in the fall and early spring. Since the river bends around the course, the name Eagle Bend was a natural. No signature hole is designated, but a consensus favors No. 16, a 560-yard par 5 with a split fairway, and No. 17, an elevated 165-yard par 3 with the river channel cutting across the entire front side of the green.

The split-fairway par 5 gives the golfer two options: play it safe down the right side, or try to reach the smaller fairway to the left. The bunkers in front of the green will see lots of action from golfers trying to reach the green in two. After a layup, a short iron will be needed to reach a severely sloped green.

Blisters Cause: Combination of friction and sweat. The body recognizes irritation caused by friction and releases fluid beneath the top layer of skin to protect the injured skin. Fix: Leave it alone. If painful, rub it with alcohol to remove dirt, and then use a small pin (dipped first in alcohol to sanitize it) to pop a tiny hole in the middle. Don’t peel the blistered skin off. Prevention: Wear socks made of wicking fiber. Calluses Cause: Repetitive pressure caused by overpronation creating areas of thick skin below second midfoot bone. Fix: During or after bathing, rub calluses with a pumice stone or washcloth to help remove toughened skin. Prevention: Wear stability or motion-control shoes. Bunions Cause: Pressure from overpronation causes swelling at the joint of the big toe, which forms a bony protrusion. Fix: Wear orthotics, stability shoes or motion-control shoes. Prevention: Wear shoes — both running and regular — that have a wide toe box. Source: Runner's World

Think green, go green, be green What does it mean to be green? Being “green” means you are taking special steps to protect the environment. There is a lot you can do to be green and make the Earth — the water, air and land — a better place for people to live. Reduce! When you use less of something, you are helping the Earth. For example, a shorter shower means using less water. Some other things you can do to reduce are: • Shut off lights when you’re not in the room. • Turn the water off while brushing your teeth. Information and recipes from kidshealth.org

• Unplug chargers for your cell phone and MP3 player when you aren’t charging them. Reuse! Instead of throwing away something you don’t need, find someone else who does need it. If you have grown too tall for your pants, give them to your younger sibling or a friend. You can also: • Use washable utensils instead of plastic forks and spoons. • Drink tap water instead of bottled. If you do have a bottle of water, fill it up with tap water several times until the bottle can’t be used anymore.

• Organize a swap with your friends. Have everyone bring unwanted toys, books, clothes and anything else and exchange them. Recycle! Recycling is so easy. All you need to do is separate glass, cans, plastic and paper into different bins and have your parents take it to a recycling center. Recycled goods are crushed, broken down and turned into new items that people can use, instead of going into a landfill. Don’t forget to get outside and enjoy the environment!

FAQ About Your Drinking Water

the inside of pipes and flake off. Although not a health hazard, it can be a nuisance by clogging inlet screens to washing machines, shower heads, and faucet aerators. This can also be caused by a defective dip tube in the water heater, which requires a plumber. standards for water quality. Occasional changes to Lawrence’s source water may have an effect on the smell/taste/appearance of your drinking water. These aesthetic changes do not affect the safety of your drinking water.

Why does my water sometimes have a chlorine taste or smell? State and federal laws require very small amounts of chlorine to be added to your water as a disinfectant to protect you from diseasecausing germs. If you are bothered by the chlorine taste, keep an open pitcher of tap water in the refrigerator; the chlorine will dissipate rapidly if the water is allowed to sit. Water run first thing in the morning may also have a chlorine smell.

Where does my water come from? Our drinking water sources are the Kansas River and the Clinton Reservoir. A small amount of water is also pumped from alluvial wells. Where your water comes from at any given time depends on where in town you live, the current demand for water, and operational circumstances. How much water does each person use per day? The US average is nearly 50 gallons used per person per day. Toilet flushing is the largest single use of water in a home. Most toilets use 4-6 gallons of water per flush. Low flow toilets use less. What causes taste or odor changes in my tap water? Because of water’s different sources and the different ways in which water is treated, its characteristics vary from place to place. The City of Lawrence’s water system meets all EPA

My water isn’t clear, is discolored, or abnormal in appearance. Why? There are many possible answers to this question, depending on the coloration. The following describe some possible appearances and the causes: • White or milky appearance: Most likely this is extra air and it will dissipate with time. Fill a clear glass with water and let it stand for 5-10 minutes. • Black particles or specks: May be granular activated carbon from your water filter. May also be black rubber from the inside of a flexible hose in your home or building. Replace with a newer style that is resistant to water disinfection. • Brown, Red, Orange or Yellow: This is probably rust which can occur from the inside of iron pipes when abnormal flows occur (due to water main breaks, maintenance, and hydrant flushing). The City of Lawrence adds phosphate to the water to help coat the iron pipes to reduce rust build-up. Old rusty pipes in your home can also be a contributor. • White or tan particles or specks: This may be pipe scale, which are minerals that coat

Why does Lawrence flush water mains and how might that affect me? Flushing cleans out our water pipes by removing rust or sediment that build up and settle on the inside of our water mains. These minerals are harmless, but as water demand increases in summer, these minerals become loose and end up in your water supply. Although beneficial, flushing can create some problems for customers in the area. If you are using water during that time, you may get some dirty appearing water. Is my drinking water safe? The City of Lawrence fully complies with the Safe Drinking Water Act. The city treats all of its water in order to meet state and federal requirements for public drinking water. Water is treated for corrosion control, disinfection, and removal of volatile organic chemicals. The Department regularly tests its water to verify quality and treatment effectiveness. Federal and state law requires that water suppliers provide their customers with an annual water quality report (sometimes called a consumer confidence report). The most recent water quality report is located at www.lawrenceks.org/utilities or can be requested by calling 785-832-7800. How will I know if my water is not safe to drink? Water suppliers are required to notify customers by newspaper, mail, radio, TV, or hand-delivery if your water does not meet EPA or state standards or if there is a water borne disease emergency. The notice will describe any precautions you need to take, such as boiling your water. The city also works closely with the Lawrence Douglas County Health Department for assistance if needed. These steps have not been necessary in the City of Lawrence for some time. Why does our water have fluoride? Fluoride is added to the water to protect teeth. According to the American Dental Association, people who drink fluoridated water have a 40-50% less cavities than without fluoride. Some home filtration devices remove fluoride from water and bottled water may or may not contain fluoride.

FISHING REGULATIONS AT MARY’S LAKE Mary’s Lake was created in the 1950s.

In 1991, Lawrence Parks and Recreation purchased the lake property and continued its development of the area with the addition of Prairie Park Nature Center in 1999 and natural trails from the center to the lake area and neighborhood park.

Lawrence parks and recreation uses the lake for nature programs and special events, which take priority over public fishing. Regulations for fishing are: 1. All persons need a license to fish in the lake except persons age 65 or over and under age 16. 2. State daily creel limits apply. 3. Length limit for large mouth bass is 15” minimum, and two (2) per day limit on channel catfish. The lake is patrolled and regulations are enforced by Wildlife and Parks and Department conservation officers. Inquiries about Mary’s Lake and the adjacent 71-acre Prairie Park can be made at the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department Administrative Office, 832-3450.

67

Lawrence Parks and Recreation uses the lake for nature programs and special events. Public fishing is accepted by following the rules above, but LPRD programs and activities take priority over public fishing and the use of the docks. There is NO swimming and NO boating allowed.
