John William Carlin (born August 3, 1940, in Salina, Kansas[1]) served as fortieth Governor of Kansas from 1979 to 1987, and Archivist of the United States from May 30, 1995, to February 15, 2005.[2]

  Biography

Carlin was raised in the Saline County, Kansas community of Smolan, attended Kansas State University, earned a degree in dairy science, and was a member of FarmHouse Fraternity.

A quiet, mild mannered dairy farmer, he ran for a seat in the Kansas House of Representatives, in 1970. He served as Speaker of the Kansas House from 1977 to 1979. In 1979 he became the youngest 20th century governor of Kansas, defeating incumbent Robert Frederick Bennett.[1] In 1990, he lost the Democratic nomination for Governor to then-State Treasurer Joan Finney. He also ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994, when he was defeated by Sam Brownback.

Appointed by President Bill Clinton, Carlin served as the Archivist of the United States from 1995 to 2005, in Washington, D.C. After a dispute about Executive Order 13233, Carlin's term as Archivist was not renewed by the Bush Administration.

After his retirement he returned to Manhattan, Kansas, where he serves as a professor in political science and Leadership Studies at Kansas State University.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
