    Beginning Monday, we will have open gym for volleyball players. The gym will be set up with one court for our volleyball enthusiasts. The gym will be available from 6-8
    p.m. each Monday. We will maintain this schedule as long as we have enough participants playing each week.
    Master Kenny Baker, of Sagasu Family Martial Arts, and his bud, Peter Cottontail, are still out beating the bushes trying to get all of their furry friends rounded up.
    They are scurrying to be ready for the fast approaching city of Leavenworth-sponsored Easter egg hunt on April 19. We will be gathering at 10th Avenue Park, next to
    Warren Middle School, with Master Baker and his furry friends at 1 p.m. that day for games, crafts, music, dancing, prizes and family fun.
    The city will be hosting its first Fishing Gala on May 10, from 8 p.m.-1 a.m. at 80 Acres, formerly Doolittle Farms, on Michals Road just off Tonganoxie Road.
    The event will be free for the children. Come back next week for more information.
    Health tip of the week: Melynda Swoyer is a nurse practitioner with Saint Luke’s Medical Group-Lansing. Last week, she discussed what causes most seasonal allergies and why allergies are worse some years than others.
    This week, Musings asked Swoyer, "How do I know if it’s allergies or just a spring cold?"
    Swoyer: "Allergy symptoms can be very distinct from a spring cold. Colds are caused by viruses. With a cold, you may experience mild fever, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, and cough, with symptoms lasting seven to 10 days.
    Page 2 of 2 - "Allergy symptoms may also include runny or stuffy nose and sore throat, but patients will also experience itchy eyes, itchy ears and sneezing. Allergy symptoms can last six weeks or longer."
    Next week, we’ll discuss common over-the-counter remedies. We'll also find out when you should see your health care provider about your allergies.
    Tabor's tip of the week: With all of the current discussions around our community and state revolving around education, I think of a comment Walt Disney once made. “Crowded classrooms and half-day sessions are a tragic waste of our greatest natural resource — the minds of our children. Let’s not forget what is important amongst all of the rhetoric — our children."
    Keep musing along and have a great year.
