The American Legion, in cooperation with the Kansas Highway Patrol, co-sponsors the Cadet Law Academy each year to give high school juniors an opportunity to train in firearms instruction and range safety, personal defense tactics, law enforcement techniques and history, emergency medical care search and seizures and other types of law enforcement procedures. Instructors are from the FBI, KBI and Kansas Highway Patrol.

Information about the application process and fees will be given at tonight's presentation, or contact Tom Harmon at 276-7919 or Harry Renick at American Legion, Post No. 9, 405 S. Main St.

Museum episode rescheduled

Finney County's brief feature in an episode of the Travel Channel's "Mysteries at the Museum" Program has been rescheduled to air at 8 p.m. Thursday. The segment deals with the Clutter case and originally was to air Feb. 27. Times are subject to change, and viewers should consult listings for their specific services, but for most cable television viewers subscribing to the Cox system in Garden City, the channel should be 62.

Footage for the segment was shot during early July in the museum's archive room and Leola Howard Blanchard Research Library, as well as the main exhibit gallery and Spirit of the Plains Gallery. The museum and some of its exhibits are expected to appear briefly at the beginning of the segment, along with scenes in the community. Most of the time, however, will be devoted to an interview with Detective Sgt. Michael Radke of the Garden City Police Department.

Radke provided two artifacts from the case that are held by the police department.
