History secured

HOISINGTON - After the Hoisington Historical Society Museum was broken into and burglarized in February, it became clear the facility needed better security. While all the items taken have since been anonymously returned, concerns linger over the possibility of it happening again, members of the society's board of directors said. Soon, motion sensors will alert authorities should anyone else attempt to purloin artifacts important to Hoisington's heritage, courtesy of the United Way of Central Kansas.

CAST AWAY

Alexa Straub, 15, is an expert in the art of arm knitting. She should be, after doing it for six years. Thursday morning, she patiently assisted other youths attending Fiber Arts Fun Day in the process of first looping bulky yarn around one arm, known as "casting on," and then holding onto the tail of the yarn and looping it through on one side and transferring the new loop onto the other arm to make a stitch. Instead of using knitting needles, the young people learned to use their arms as needles as they created loosely knit scarves.
