    AG Derek Schmidt: 326 crime victims to receive support

    TOPEKA – (January 13, 2017) – The Kansas Crime Victims Compensation Board yesterday awarded financial assistance to 326 victims of violent crime at its January meeting, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

    Awards were made in 173 new cases. Additional expenses were paid in 153 previously submitted cases. The awards totaled $351,751.98.

    The Division of Crime Victims Compensation in Schmidt’s office administers the Crime Victims Compensation program, which was established in 1978 to help victims of violent crime pay for their unexpected expenses such as medical treatment, mental health counseling, lost wages, dependent support and funeral expenses.

    The state’s three-member Crime Victims Compensation Board determines claims that are eligible for payment and how much money will be awarded to each claimant. Awards are limited to a maximum total amount of $25,000 with limitations of $5,000 for funeral expense, $5,000 for outpatient mental health counseling, $10,000 for inpatient mental health treatment and $1,500 for grief counseling for family survivors of homicide victims.

    A portion of assessed court costs and fines, inmate wages, parole fees and restitution paid by convicted offenders provides funding to the program.

    For more information about the Crime Victims Compensation Program call (785) 296-2359 or visit the Attorney General’s website at www.ag.ks.gov.

    Women-Only Weekend Event Teaches Outdoor Skills

    Women-Only Weekend Event Teaches Outdoor Skills

    PRATT – Getting started in hunting, fishing, or just about any outdoor activity, can be intimidating for most people, but especially for women. Ladies today are faced with societal and familial pressures that often prevent them from pursuing outdoor quests, but the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism has a solution for that: Becoming An Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshops. BOW workshops – or rather really fun weekend rendezvous where women can take classes of their choosing – provide outdoor skills training in a fun, friendly, and laid-back atmosphere. Interested women are encouraged to sign up for the next workshop, May 5-7 at Rock Springs 4-H Center in Junction City. With more than 25 different classes to choose from, attendees can craft the perfect outdoor weekend, tailored specifically to their interests.

    Cost for the three-day workshop is $250, which includes lodging, meals and class supplies. Three $100 scholarships are available to first-time participants based on financial need.

    Early registration will be open to first-time participants through February 10. If spots still remain, past participants may register thereafter. Registration closes April 25. Applicants are encouraged to apply early as spring workshops fill up fast. To register, visit www.ksoutdoors.com and click “Education,” then “Becoming an Outdoor Woman.”

    For questions, call or email Jami McCabe at (785) 845-5052 or kansasbow@sbcglobal.net.

    To learn more, and view pictures of past workshops, visit the BOW Facebook page found under “Becoming an Outdoors Woman KANSAS.”
