The visit comes on the heels of the U.S. House passing Kline’s Smarter Solutions for Students Act (H.R. 1911), which promises to prevent subsidized Stafford loans from doubling on July 1 and offer a long-term, market-based solution to the student loan issue. Kline is chairman of the Education and the Workforce Committee.

Local artists of all ages now have an opportunity to help update the art by painting their interpretation of a story, folktale or book from any culture. Artists of all ages are invited to submit their panel designs on 23 x 30 templates (true-size templates available at the library).
