KU Faculty Visits for 13th Time

LAWRENCE — More than 40 University of Kansas faculty and staff members will learn about rural health care, roam with the buffalo, visit a restored opera house and see the state’s history and nature up close Wednesday, May 25, the third day of the 2011 Wheat State Whirlwind Tour.

The 13th iteration of the tour is taking KU faculty and staff, many new to the state, on a five-day tour of Kansas to learn more about its history, culture, economy and landscape.

Day three will begin with a visit to the Gove County Medical Center in Quinter. Dr. Shelly Gruenbacher will talk with the group about challenges facing rural health care providers such as the Gove County Medical Center. Both KU and KU Medical Center work closely with health care professionals throughout the state and educate doctors, nurses and pharmacists who practice throughout Kansas.

From Quinter, the tour bus will travel on, taking in the Bronze Buffalo sculpture near Oakley and Monument Rocks in Gove County. The next buffalo the group sees will be the real thing, at one of the tour’s most popular annual stops, a “buffalo roam” at the ranch of Richard Duff in Logan County.

Duff, the owner of Beef Belt Feeders of Scott City, and his staff will take the tourgoers on a ride on flat bed trucks to get an up close at some of their roughly 200 head of buffalo. The visitors will also have the opportunity to visit the nearby Keystone Gallery. The gallery showcases some of the fossils and other natural relics found in the area, a hotbed of Kansas discovery.

After the ride with the buffalo, the tour bus will travel to Scott City, where the group will have lunch at the Majestic. The former theater has a long history in the community. Originally showing silent films and hosting traveling performances, the Majestic has since been restored and now serves as a restaurant and occasionally hosts live performances.
