Southeast Kansas Fishing Has No Boundaries will be hosting its 11th Annual Fishing Event for anglers with disabilities on June 6 at Big Hill Lake in Labette County.
The SEK chapter, chaired by Shari Coatney, is offering opportunities to help sponsor activities that will include breakfast, lunch and a cook-out at the end of the day.
The original concept was developed by Bobby Cammack, a fishing guide in Hayward, Wis. In 1986, he broke his leg and discovered he had trouble pursuing his passion of fishing. Two years later he hosted a fishing event designed to enable people with disabilities to enjoy the great outdoors.
Wireless Emergency Alerts can be received on cell phones across the country. These alerts are automatic, provide AMBER alerts, and weather emergency notifications. Unlike text alerts you may receive from your city, county, or institution, you do not have to sign-up to receive WEA messages.
Georgia Tech’s Center for Advanced Communications Policy is interested in your level of awareness of WEA messages. This survey will also help us understand how accessible and useful you think they are. Your responses will be used to craft recommendations for improving the system that sends WEA messages and the mobile/cell phones that receive WEA messages.
