    I am on real shoestring in Greensburg. Thanks to a donation from the KS chapter, I was able to get Photoshop Elements and Adobe Acrobat. We already had a GIS system, which I am not able to manipulate...it is operated by the county emergency management. I think it is ArcGIS. I wish I had some control over the GIS, but I would need someone with the time to work it.

    When I first took this position, the first purchases with the APA-KS donation were the old manual tools: triangles, compass, protractor, engineers scale, graph paper. We had NOTHING.
