Course improvements continue to please, challenge golfers By Roger Steinbrock

S

ince its opening 13 ½ years ago, Eagle Bend Golf Course and Learning Center has continued developing on its path from what Jeff Brauer, the golf course designer, originally envisioned. A couple of years ago, Brauer visited the course and provided his insight and assessment of the course and how its transformation had gone after its first 10 years. “He was very impressed with the course’s development,” Mark Hecker, assistant director of Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department, said. “He gave us some good feedback on what he wanted to convey through his design and how we could improve it. He was very positive about the transformation of the course since its opening.” The course has only had two superintendents managing the grounds since its opening. Kerry Golden, long-time superintendent, moved on last year after working at Eagle Bend from the beginning – over-

seeing the construction of the course, its opening and continued daily maintenance. Last April, Darin Pearson joined the staff as the new superintendent. Pearson, who brought more than 14 years of turf grass knowledge at Alvamar Country Club, was excited to take on the challenge of Eagle Bend. “I feel like we’re awaking a sleeping giant,” Pearson said. “Eagle Bend is a crown jewel for the community, and I’m very privileged to be given the opportunity to continue its development.” Pearson is continuing the grass conversion project, transitioning from Ryegrass to Zoysia Grass in the fairways, which begun in 2008. Pearson said there are 6 holes left to convert or 10-acres. Much of which will be sodded with grass from Eagle Bend’s Zoysia farm created shortly after the project was started in 2008. “By converting the course to Zoysia, it improves a golfer’s playability,” Pearson said. “The ball stands up higher on Zoysia. On Ryegrass, the ball sits down, so you have to pick it.

With Zoysia, you have to sweep it.” Pearson added that Zoysia holds up to cart traffic better and mowing will be reduced by almost 12 weeks. “With the reduction in mowing, spraying of fungicide and seeding, we’ll save more than $12,000 dollars a year when we have the entire course converted to Zoysia,” Pearson said. The process of converting the fairways is about a three-year process, he said. Strips of Zoysia sod are cut into the Ryegrass and over time the Zoysia takes over the ryegrass. Pearson said he is testing areas to see if the process can be sped up by reducing the size of the strips and adding more of them along the fairway to see if the Zoysia spreads into the Ryegrass quicker. He is also adding Zoysia around the greens, which will accent the greens nicely and provide three distinct color tones to each hole. He is also taking Zoysia Grass all the way up to the greens from the fairway. “The designer created a great space and really opened the greens,” he said. “I think adding the Zoysia all the way up to the

green and adding a ring around the greens will really showcase this. It really adds to the contour of the hole that was created.” Pearson said that he’s approaching everything on a hole-by-hole basis, and that he wants to make sure there is healthy grass everywhere on the course. He wants to figure out what type of grass works best in all areas, while being consistent with the grasses being used. He said in the past grass around the greens hasn’t always been the healthiest that it could be. “My main concern is to look at areas where grass is dying and find out why,” Pearson said. Pearson has even enlisted the assistance of turf grass specialists at Kansas State University to help. He said he works with K-State more than the average superintendent and sees the research that can be gained will allow the industry to learn from the experiences of others. Recently, he sought assistance to solve a fungus problem that occurred on one of the converted fairways. Zoysia Patch fungus was attacking the crown of the Zoysia but didn’t seem to be affecting the Ryegrass at all. He said a picture of the fairway was posted on a university forum and many researches posted several questions and advice on its treatment. He said he has also has fielded calls from across

the U.S. inquiring about the situation. “I want to know why things are happening and solve it,” Pearson said. “I love to figure out what works and why it works. Research is done for a reason, and I’ll use whatever resources are available to me to solve a problem.” Pearson wants to make sure his staff understands when they see things that aren’t right and need to figure out why it’s happening. If there is an area where grass seems to be dying, the solution isn’t just to add more grass seed to the area. I’m telling the guys who work at the golf course, the things we are doing now — from fall to spring — will help us survive in June, July, August and September,” Pearson said. “Those four months are typically when you lose grass. We have to ask ‘what can we do in our methods, so we don’t lose grass.’ “By not losing grass during those four months, we won’t have to spend money reseeding everything in the fall, and we’re already ahead of the game. I’m trying to make sure we are in the best environmental situation possible.” Pearson is adding additional enhancements, including a tree line along the driving range, which will provide shade for people using the driving range in the evening hours when

the sun is going down and shining intensely on people using the area. He would like to see the course host championship tournaments, so he is adding new tee boxes and had the United States Golf Association re-rate the hole measurements and slope of the course to potentially bring notable tournaments to Eagle Bend. Other amenities are being added, including new flag sticks, cups and heavier-duty flags. Volunteer trees that have been growing in native grasses are being taken out, which Pearson said will open up the course even more and provide additional natural beauty. He has added a yardage pole on each hole that is centered in the fairway 150 yards away from the green, which will provide assistance to golfers. “I’ve been told by so many people, ‘for a municipal-style golf course, you’ve got a championship-style design around the greens,’” Pearson said. “I’m just trying to bring that to the forefront and make it visually appealing to the golfer. “I want its beauty to be seen in the summer and the contrast of gold and green in the winter. I want to have Eagle Bend be the best we can be and have the healthiest grass we can create. The course has to complement the great service we provide. You bring people back with good turf and great service. It’s the course as a whole.”

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, (785) 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 does not 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, which 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. Make-up lessons Make-up swim lessons will be held only if the LPRD staff makes the cancellation. There are no make-up 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 to 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 on both their front and back positions with assistance; submerging with assistance and changing body positions in the water. Aqua Tots Swim (3 years old): This class bridges the Parent/Child class to the Learn-to-Swim program and is designed for preschool aged children who have never been in a swim class but are ready to hold on to the wall and be in the 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 ageappropriate 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 five 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; 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 2 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 scissor kick and butterfly for 15 yards. Skills learned include head-first entries, survival swimming and treading water using two kicks. This level is taught in the competition pool (LIAC).

Level 5: Increased endurance, coordination and refinement of strokes; front crawl, back crawl, butterfly, breaststroke, elementary backstroke, sidestroke and flip turns. This level is taught in the competition pool (LIAC).

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. This level is taught in the competition pool (LIAC). 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. This level is taught in the competition pool (LIAC). 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. This level is taught in the competition pool (LIAC). 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 one, two, or three class, this is the course for you. Junior swim is targeted towards 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. This level is taught in the competition pool (LIAC).

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.

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, jmorris@lawrenceks.org 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 12-Month Golf Pass may be purchased at the Pro Shop and provides the purchaser with unlimited green fees any day for a 12-month period beginning from the date of purchase. Cart rental, if desired, will be assessed at the standard, full-price rate and will not be reduced for any specials or discounts being offered to the public.

Drug-Free Drains You can help protect our water from pharmaceuticals and personal care products! Every day the average adult uses nine personal care products that contain 126 unique compounds that could end up in our water. In addition to traces of products like shampoo, toothpaste, sunscreen, and cosmetics, minute amounts of prescription and over-the-counter drugs also make their way into water. They should be limited or prevented from entering our environment. Due to our increased use of these products and greater analytical sensitivity, very tiny amounts of compounds and drugs can be detected in conventional treatment plant outflow and end up in creeks, streams, and rivers. While there is no evidence these traces pose a risk to human health, scientists can sometimes find interference with aquatic organisms, and studies continue. Meanwhile, it’s prudent to control what we put into water, and everyone’s help is important. In addition to following product recommendations for use and disposal and decreasing use when possible, you can help keep water clean by simply not flushing unused medication down the toilet! Controlling what goes down the drain is the easiest and most effective way to protect the environment, and you can start today! Douglas County residents can call (785) 832-3030 to schedule an appointment to drop off excess or expired prescription and over-the-counter medication at the City of Lawrence/Douglas County Household Hazardous Waste Facility. This facility cannot accept controlled or narcotic substances, such as prescription painkillers like Percocet, or others like Xanax. If residents cannot take their medication to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility, they can use the kitty litter or coffee ground method recommended by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. This involves crushing or dissolving solid medications in water, coffee or another liquid, then making a paste by adding this liquid to a substance like coffee grounds or kitty litter. The final step is to put the paste in a closed container and place the container in the trash.

Disposable wipes clog pipes. Put them in the trash, not the toilet.

Cleaning cloths, baby wipes and sewer systems don’t mix Recently, there has been an increase in the disposal of baby wipes, adult wipes, disposable dust clothes, and disposable floor sweeper cloths into the city’s sanitary sewer system. Although the packages of these items say “disposable” or “flushable”, they can create huge problems in homeowner’s privately owned sewer lines and the city sewer lines. When flushed down the toilet, these items do not dissolve like toilet paper but instead settle or snag in the lines. When settled out or snagged in the lines, they create a dam or blockage, which restricts the flow of wastewater through the lines and may cause sewage backups in the lines and into people’s homes. If settled in private sewer lines, this may eventually cause enough of a blockage that the used water from that home cannot enter the city’s collection system and back-up into the homeowner’s basement or drains. If settled out or snagged in the city’s collection system, they may eventually result in a large enough blockage that they cause a sewage back-up. Even more damaging, the wipes can become wrapped around or entangled in the city’s lift station pumps, which requires Utilities employees to remove them. This costs the city, and ultimately the rate payer, more money but it could also cause a malfunction of the equipment and potentially a sanitary sewer back-up into neighboring homes or a sanitary sewer overflow into a nearby waterway. Although trying to divert items from the landfill is an excellent choice, and something everyone should strive for, sending these products down the drain can cause sometimes very expensive problems for the homeowner and the city in the long run. If you use any of the above listed products, please dispose of these items in the trash, not down the drain. Please feel free to direct any questions that you have on this to the Lawrence Utilities Department at (785) 832-7800.

Stretch’s Corner for Adults

Expert golf tips Hand position I like to see your hands toward the inside of your left thigh on every shot except the driver. With the driver, I like to see your hands at your zipper. If this moves them slightly behind the ball at address, that is fine. It encourages hitting on the upswing. From Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book: Lessons and Teachings from a Lifetime in Golf, 1992

Swing the bucket To start a golf swing you need a forward press of some sort that sets off the action. My favorite image of what I want the forward press to feel like is to imagine you are in your stance holding a bucket of water with your hands on either side of the bucket. If you’re going to swing this bucket back like a golf backswing, you just naturally won’t do it from a dead stop. Your hands and hips and shoulders and legs will rock forward a tiny bit to provide the reaction that give momentum to the backswing. This starts the turn and the shift of the weight to the right foot that you would need to swing a bucket of water. Your hands will follow your turn into the backswing as the bucket goes up. Your left heel will rise. If you are gripping the bucket too tightly, you will turn fast. If you grip is light, your turn will be slow and free. To bring the bucket back down, you wouldn’t throw it with your hands. You would shift your weight onto your left foot and turn your left hip, and you would naturally stay behind the bucket as you swing it down and through. From Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book: Lessons and Teachings from a Lifetime in Golf, 1992

Practice holing every chip you hit It is easy to be a little defensive on chip shots, which can mean leaving the ball short. Train yourself out of this tendency by practicing an aggressive and positive outlook, aiming to hole every chip shot you hit. This attitude has two clear benefits. Firstly, if you get the ball running toward the hole, there is always a chance that it might drop in (the hole never comes back to meet the ball, remember). Secondly, if the ball misses the hole you can observe its progress past the hole which will give you a clue as to whether your return putt will break or run straight. Thinking positively gives you every chance to realize your potential, which will result in a higher standard of chipping Often it is when you are overly defensive that you hit your worst shots. Think positively! Aim your hole every chip you hit. Raising your expectations is often a great way to lift the standard of your overall game. From The Golf Instruction Manual by Steve Newell, 2001


Stretch’s Corner for Kids

Proper golf etiquette • You should always stand quietly and never walk or move while others are playing. • Remember to always stand to the right of the shot and never behind a player. This is vital for safety. • Be aware of others playing. • Invite other golfers to play through by standing aside and waving them through. Once you have waved them through, let them go. AND DON’T TALK if they are playing their ball in front of you. • Make practice swings only when there’s no chance that you’ll disturb another golfer and always remember, NEVER HAVE PRACTICE SWINGS ON A TEE. • When playing from a bunker, you should always replace divots, rake, and repair any marks or damage made by the ball or club. All you have to do to repair or replace it is pick up the chunk of turf and gently press it back in place. Don’t worry, it will grow back on its own. • Be punctual on the first tee. • On the putting green, don’t stand or walk on the line the ball would travel to the cup of another player’s shot. • Always try to keep it moving so that players behind you are not delayed. • Never hit into a group of people! If you accidentally hit a ball toward someone, call out “FORE!” If you ever hear someone shout “fore,” bend over and cover your head with your arms. • Never place your clubs in a bunker.

Park Spotlight

Naismith Valley Park History This 25-acre greenbelt stretching from 24th to 29th Streets is currently accessible by foot from 24th Street, 25th Street and 27th Street. It was one of the first greenbelt parks in Lawrence. Nineteen acres were initially purchased with a Land and Water Conservation Fund matching grant in 1972, and an additional 6 acres were added in 1975 through a tax sale. Incidentally, the same sale allowed the City to acquire Chaparral Park. In 1977, 20 acres of the park were seeded in native grasses by

members of Youth Conservation Corps. The park is almost a mile long and is a natural area of a floodplain leading to the Wakarusa River. In the late ’90s, the Parks and Recreation Department further developed the park by adding a nature trail following the stream in the park. Description Naismith Valley Park consists of a 25-acre area that is home to various prairie grasses and flowers. The park was acquired with a land grant and water conservation funds.

On many days, various birds can be observed at Naismith Valley Park. These include purple martins, cardinals, red winged blackbirds, orange-crowned warblers, tree swallow, killdeer, and American goldfinches. Ten-feet-wide hard surface trails are accessible from 24th Street, south across 27th Street and end at 29th Terrace and Missouri Street. The amenities of the park include: • Trails. • Natural Areas.

Recreational trails through Naismith Valley Park and the Heatherwood neighborhood north of Clinton Parkway are great for walkers. Additional trails have been improved in Prairie Park.

OTHER RECREATIONAL FACILITIES SESQUICENTENNIAL POINT 6000 W. 27th St. Sesquicentennial Point, which is on a hillside within the leased park lands overlooking Clinton Lake and the Wakarusa Valley. Sesquicentennial Point was developed to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Lawrence’s founding and provides a gathering space for groups and offer adjacent hiking trails and picnic areas. The Point’s plaza, near the top of the hill, includes a platform, inscribed with the names of major donors.

Stone elements, representing a 150-year timeline and bisecting the half circles, step down the gentle slope. Envisioned for the future is a grassy amphitheater on the hillside below the time capsule. Sesquicentennial Point is destined to become a community treasure. To reserve Sesquicentennial Point for your event or to check its availability, please call (785) 832-7920.

FISHING REGULATIONS AT MARY’S LAKE Mary’s Lake was created in the 1950s. Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department worked with property owners in the '70s to use the natural area and lake for its Exceptional Summer Camps, as well as coordinated programming with special education classes in the public schools in the spring and fall seasons. 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.

livewell lawrence LiveWell Lawrence is a local group that works to make it easier for residents to eat healthy foods and be physically active. It is pursuing several approaches that members hope will nudge residents toward healthier futures. The approaches aim to change everyday places—neighborhoods, schools, after-school programs, workplaces, restaurants and city streets—into environments that provide healthy food and convenient opportunities for daily physical activity. Featured projects include a workplace wellness program, a restaurant challenge, school gardens, a bicycling initiative, and a campaign to make it easier to get around town on foot, by bike, by wheelchair, or by bus. For more information, visit www.livewelllawrence.org. Tobacco-Free Lifestyle OK, so you navigated yourself past the Great America Smokeout and are still looking for the right thing to motivate you to stop using tobacco. Your significant other has mentioned it to you. Your kids have nagged you. Your dog even walks away from you whenever you light up. It’s time to resolve that by the end of the year you’re ready to be an ex; as in ex-smoker. The most important component in deciding to quit tobacco is YOU. You have to make the decision that you want to become an ex. That’s the hardest part of quitting — resolving that you are committed to quitting. The cravings will come and go; but staying true to your commitment to quit is the challenge. So make that New Year’s resolution count this year. Pick a date that means something to you for your Quit Date (your birthday, child’s birthday, anniversary, etc.). Give yourself ample time to get ready – you’re going to get rid of all forms of tobacco; stock up on replacement items like cinnamon gum, straws to chew on, maybe some hard candy; tell your family and friends you’re quitting, etc. If you want some additional assistance to quit, call the Kansas Tobacco Quitline at 1.800.QUIT.NOW. Your date can be before Jan. 1. United Way of Douglas County United Way of Douglas County’s mission it to address human service needs by mobilizing community resources and building partnerships.  United way funds a range of agencies to better serve the community.  The annual campaign raises funds in the fall that are then allocated to agencies the following spring.  Community volunteers carefully evaluate the needs and services so that charitable dollars are used effectively.  United Way funds collaborative projects that address specific community needs in a creative way, such as the Compass program – an initiative that provides career direction and leadership skills for junior high youth.  United Way also manages the Roger Hill Volunteer Center, which matches volunteer opportunities throughout Douglas County with volunteers.

Lawrence humane Society The Lawrence Humane Society cares for approximately 7,500 unwanted, stray, abused or lost animals annually. We provide shelter, complete care, and medication for all and work diligently to find permanent, loving homes for thousands each year. Although the Lawrence Humane Society receives limited financial assistance from the city and county, we mainly rely on our local community to support our efforts to house the local stray pet population, provide for sick and unwanted animals, maintain a safe and healthy environment for the animals in our care, and reunite lost pets with their owners.

Lawrence Humane Society encourages you to adopt an animal from its shelter. Adoption is the avenue to improve the lives of dogs, cats and other animals in our community. Equally important, however, adoption can offer you the rewards of a lifetime. Across the country, millions of amazing dogs in every size and shape are waiting, waiting, waiting to be the new best friend of someone with an open spot in their heart and in their family for a faithful companion. For more information or to make a donation, please stop by the Douglas County Humane Society located at 1805 E. 19th St., (785) 842-6835. Hours: Monday – Closed; Tuesday-Friday – 11:30 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturdays – 11:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays – noon-4 p.m.
