McLouth Happenings

March 6, 2012

The Kansas Republican Party Presidential Caucus will take place Saturday, March 10. It's free, fun and fast. Persons wishing to participate in the caucus must be registered Republicans as of Feb. 17, 2012, and must be 18 years of age or older by March 10, 2012. The voter must present proof that he or she is a registered Republican at their current address. Proof is defined as either (1) a state issued photo ID matching current Secretary of State voter registration rolls for name and date of birth or (2) a state issued photo ID and a current voter registration card with a matching name and date of birth.

Arrive early to be credentialed (8:30 a.m. for Leavenworth County voters; 9 a.m. for Jefferson County voters). The caucus convenes promptly at 10 a.m. with speeches by candidates or their representatives. This is not an "all-day" event. Check-in will remain open until 1 p.m. Ballots will be distributed to credentialed voters after the conclusion of the last speech per round of caucusing.

The Republican Caucus for Jefferson County voters will be at the Ozawkie American Legion Hall.  Credentialing begins at 9 a.m.

The Republican Caucus for Leavenworth County voters will be at the Leavenworth High School, located at 2012 10th Ave., in Leavenworth. Credentialing begins at 8:30 a.m.

Remember to set your clocks forward (Spring Ahead!) one hour before going to bed Saturday night.  Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. on March 11.

American Legion Post No. 41 will hold its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. on March 13 in the 4-H Building on the Fairgrounds in Tonganoxie. Nomination of Officers will be on the agenda.

Aside from the last paragraph regarding American Legion and a reminder to reset my clock, this is a Republican political ad. I am looking for McLouth events when I read this column. If I wanted to know how to vote in a Republican Caucus, I would contact the GOP.

I feel confident there is something newsworthy in McLouth. We have "happenings" going on at the public library, all the churches, schools, businesses, city government and many organizations around town. All of which are open to the general public.

This is not a forum for Ms. Muzzy to advance her specific political or religious views, which seems to be the case most weeks.

McLouth has more to offer than what people are seeing in her column.
