TOPEKA – Governor Laura Kelly today announced that, to support those in our state who have served in the armed forces, this month's KANSASWORKS Statewide Virtual Job Fair will dedicate the first day to military veterans, their spouses and caretakers.

The fair will begin tomorrow, March 23, and will continue through Thursday, March 25.

"Kansas veterans pick up valuable career skills during their time in military service that give them the tools to be successful members of our workforce," Governor Kelly said. "The KANSASWORKS Virtual Job Fair is designed to help elevate those skills, and promote their talents to businesses and employers statewide."

The virtual fair will allow job seekers to easily live chat with employers from across the state through computers and mobile devices.

The Department of Commerce, in partnership with Local Workforce Development Boards, moved its statewide job fairs online in 2020 to eliminate public health risks associated with mass gatherings, and to continue providing job opportunities and maintaining a ready workforce for Kansas businesses.

Registration is now required for each virtual event. If job seekers have previously attended a Virtual Job Fair, they are required to re-register for this event with the link provided above.

"Virtual job fairs continue to be a vital part of our commitment to safely helping Kansans find employment and helping Kansas businesses fill positions," Lieutenant Governor and Commerce Secretary David Toland said. "Our state's veteran community has some of the most dedicated, persistent and capable people you'll ever meet. We want them to live and work in Kansas, and setting aside the first day of the
fair for our veterans seeking employment is one show of support they richly deserve."

As concerns for Kansans' health and safety remain high due to COVID-19, the Department of Commerce will maintain the Virtual Job Fair system for the foreseeable future.

Job seekers can now upload their most recent resume to their Virtual Job Fair account. If you require assistance, please contact your local workforce center at (877) 509-6757 to schedule an appointment.

It was the last straw for many, after Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Breonna Taylor, and so many more suffered needless deaths at the hands of law enforcement. It heightened the emotional subject of racial disparity and discrimination, to a recognition of
New playground equipment at the Grade School
We as adults don't have the capability to truly judge the quality of a new, and visually impressive, piece of playground equipment. So, My Local Life recruited the help of two local experts in the fields of testing and evaluating the overall quality of 'fun stuff'.

Mahra and Mika take us through this new playground and let us know if the fun level was worth the effort, or if the school and the community just wasted their time and money.

Watch, and be informed.

WHAT ARE COVER CROPS?
Written by Fred Wedel, Retired NRCS District Conservationist

What are cover crops? Cover crops are grown for the protection and enrichment of the soil. In Agriculture, cover crops are used to cover and protect the soil rather than to be harvested.

Cover crops are used to manage cropland and reduce soil erosion, improve soil fertility, improve soil quality, improve water storage, reduce pressure from weeds, pests and diseases, and improve biodiversity and wildlife in an agroecosystem.
