Fire truck damaged in fire No cause has been determined in a Tuesday morning fire that disabled a fire truck inside a Lawrence fire station. The fire began in the engine compartment of the ladder truck, which was parked inside Station No. 4, 2819 Stone Barn Terrace. Flames caused major damage to the engine and also to the inside of the truck’s cab, said Richard Barr, fire marshal for Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical. No one was injured in the blaze, which broke out shortly before 9 a.m. Tuesday. No apparent fire damage to the station or to other vehicles was discovered, Barr said. The damaged truck was moved to Station No. 2, 1941 Haskell Ave., where it was being inspected by two officials from the Kansas State Fire Marshal’s Office. A reserve engine was brought to Station No. 4 as a temporary replacement, Barr said. No loss estimate or maintenance record for the damaged engine was available Tuesday. _________________________________ Kidnapped child’s father faces battery charges The father of one of two kidnapped children recently reunited with their mother was charged Tuesday with throwing the children and their mother to the ground. James J. Barbee, 39, appeared in Douglas County District Court on counts of battery, domestic battery and endangering a child. He was arrested early Tuesday after he allegedly threw 25-year-old Shamikah Turner and 2-year-old Chauncey Oatis to the ground, police said. Turner also had been holding Barbee’s son, 6-month-old James Barbee Jr., when she was shoved down, police said. Neither Turner nor her two children were seriously injured, police said. Barbee’s arrest came a day after 17-year-old Natasha Helm was ordered to stand trial for kidnapping James and Chauncey from Turner’s home. Barbee on Tuesday remained in Douglas County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bond. _________________________________ Election reform to be topic of conference at KU Politicians and historians will meet next week at a Kansas University conference to discuss election reform. The conference, “Counting All the Votes/How Votes Count: Elections in the 21st Century,” is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. Tuesday at Adams Alumni Center. Sponsored by KU’s Robert J. Dole Institute for Public Service and Policy, the conference is free and open to the public. U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., will be keynote speaker. Brownback recently introduced legislation, with Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., that would create a commission to study the federal election process and establish a five-year, $2.5 billion program to help upgrade state and local election systems. At 2 p.m., KU professors Paul Schumaker and Burdett Loomis, editors of a forthcoming book, “The Electoral College and Beyond,” will lead a discussion among several leading academics on the Electoral College. _________________________________ KDOT seeks input on educational center The Kansas Department of Transportation has scheduled a meeting Friday with area school and university representatives. Mike Rees, the department’s chief counsel, has invited officials from Lawrence, Eudora, Baldwin and Perry-Lecompton public school districts; Lawrence Catholic schools; and Kansas University, Haskell Indian Nations University and Baker University to a meeting from 1 to 4 p.m. at the South Park Recreation Center, 1141 Mass. KDOT continues to seek ways to complete the eastern leg of the South Lawrence Trafficway. As part of the Baker Wetlands mitigation project, Rees said, the department is willing to consider building an educational and research center, and input is being sought from the school groups. The center would be designed with classrooms and laboratories.
