Around Kansas - KS Music Hall of Fame Ballots - August 10, 2016
(Frank) And again, here we are on Around Kansas. (Deb) One of these days you're going to come back and we're not going to be here. We're going to be out getting a cup of coffee or a slushy. (Frank) Either that or we'll be speechless and just be siting here. We're just going to watch you someday. That would be fun. (Deb) One of my friends, who lives in France, commented on my Facebook page the other day. She was watching me on TV. It was a documentary that I was in on Jesse James, and it was showing in France, and I'm like, “Wow, that is--.” She said, It's so good to see you” and I said, Well, it was good to see you too. [Laughter] (Frank) So anyway. Well that's the nice thing too, because not only are we on broadcast TV and then on cable around the state, but we do have a website and so people really all around the world can watch the show. And that's really what we kind of want, because part of the mission of Around Kansas is to get people that are going to be traveling to stop in Kansas and say, Hey, there's some great stuff to go see. (Deb) Really cool people, really cool stuff, and as we've talked before, a lot of talent. So speaking of talent, the Kansas Music Hall of Fame ballots are up and available now for voting. You can become a member of the Kansas Music Hall of Fame by visiting their website and paying the nominal fee to vote for the band that you think deserves inclusion in the Kansas Music Hall of Fame. (Frank) Yes, Bill Lee, the late Bill Lee, pretty much founded that, and I was fortunate to work with Bill at KLWN in Lawrence here, years ago. (Deb) Amazing man, amazing man, we owe him a wonderful debt of gratitude. Allen Blasco, President of the Kansas Music Hall of Fame, has announced the ballot for the 2017 inductees. Members of the Kansas Music Hall of Fame and those who have been inducted are eligible to vote. You may join the Kansas Music Hall of Fame by visiting the website.

Incredible Secret Government Bunkers Hidden in Plain Sight
Mysterious and secretive fallout bunkers have been built by the US government, check out these 6 Unbelievable Secret Underground Shelters
World Unearthed - MOST Massive Operations HIDDEN In Plain Sight:
6 Raven Rock Mountain Complex
Near Blue Ridge Summit in Pennsylvania is Raven Rock mountain, is a Military nuclear bunker referred to as the “Underground Pentagon”. Containing emergency operations for all the military branches this is one of few of the 3 known bunkers built to keep our government going in case of nuclear attack. The Pentagon relocation center was built while Harry S Truman was in office in 1950 and required about a half million cubic feet of granite to be blown out of the mountain and hauled away. The buildings has an appearance of an ordinary office buildings but it is set inside deep within the mountain. The complex is so large it has roads and parking areas big enough to accommodate trucks and buses. For 30 days the facility can operate in what is called the “buttoned up” position, meaning it is totally closed off from the rest of the world. This doesn’t sound like long, but this is for around 3 thousand people. The facility has two power plants and several of its own underground water reservoirs. Since the Obama administration, the site has been open for public tours, but it leaves me curious of what parts of the facility are unseen to the regular citizen.
5 Presidential Emergency Operations Center
Located underground, beneath the East wing of the white house, this bunker structure is shrouded in mystery. First of all the Presidential Emergency Operations Center or PEOC is not to be confused with the situation room, as that is in the West wing of the white house, there is a briefing room within the PEOC, which is why it is often confused with the situation room, but there is certainly more to this bunker than just a long table and some chairs.
The PEOC is meant to act as a communications center as well as shelter in the case of an emergency, what the actual protocol in cases of emergencies is unknown, meaning, the public does not know how many people can survive and for how long within the PEOC. The only part of the structure actually shown to the public is the briefing room, meanwhile this bunker is meant to house at least 13 people, plus secret service agents and military personnel, so how big it is is only known by a few. It is also guarded round the clock by military personnel, ready to step to action.
Built for Franklin Roosevelt during the second world war, the bunker is believed to be able to withstand a nuclear blast, so regardless of all the mystery with it, we know it has some serious construction. The president, vice president and others are brought to the PEOC executive briefing room whenever there is any breach of white house security, including airspace, or during major attacks on US soil, several well known photos are floating around of George W. Bush in the briefing room during the september 11 attacks in NYC.
