Health care: Planned Parenthood to offer free exams Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri is offering free pap smears Tuesday as part of nationwide participation in Self magazine’s “Self Day.” Free services include a pap and pelvic exam. To schedule a free exam at the Lawrence Planned Parenthood office, 1420 Kasold Drive, call 832-0281. _________________________________ Military history: History student selected for West Point seminar A Kansas University doctoral student in history has been selected to attend a month-long military history seminar this June at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. Lisa Brady, Lawrence, will receive a $1,500 stipend to attend a seminar that focuses on teaching and researching American and European military history and American military experiences in Asia. She was one of 30 students chosen for the program. Brady is researching the connection between the natural environment, gender and the military, specifically during the final stages of the American Civil War. The seminar will likely provide background for her dissertation research and help her learn about teaching and researching military history. _________________________________ Earth friendly: Hazardous-waste facility to accept collections The Lawrence-Douglas County Household Hazardous Waste Facility, 711 E. 23rd, will be open from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday to collect waste products. City employees will receive paints and paint-related products, household cleaners, pest control items, and automotive and miscellaneous products for proper disposal. More than 61,000 pounds of hazardous wastes were disposed of last year through the program. Businesses that generate less than 55 pounds per month of hazardous waste, or less than 2.2 pounds per month of acutely hazardous waste, also are allowed to use the facility. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 25, the facility will sponsor a Product Reuse Program open house to distribute to the public, free-of-charge, shelves of slightly used products, including paint, pest control products, and household cleaners. The purpose of this program is to reduce the amount of hazardous waste disposal. More than 9,600 pounds of product were distributed through the program last year. For more information on these programs, call 832-3030. _________________________________ National champions: Former Lawrence residents win orienteering titles Four former Lawrence residents won national championships at the U.S. Short- and Long-Course Orienteering Champions last month near Cincinnati.
