Kansas Union rededicated to honor 75th anniversary An ROTC color guard was on hand Thursday during a rededication ceremony marking the Kansas Union’s 75th birthday. The student union building on the Kansas University campus was constructed as a memorial to the 130 Kansas University students and alumni who died during World War I. ____________________ Violence: Student suspended for threatening note A 12-year-old Woodlawn School student has been suspended for five days after he was accused of writing a threatening note as part of a class exercise, authorities said. The boy’s teacher confronted him after the note was written and informed the principal. The note, which “contained threatening language” and was “perceived as a threat,” was written as part of a class assignment that involved communicating through notes, Lawrence Police Sgt. Mike Pattrick said. Julie Boyle, Lawrence school district director of communications, confirmed the suspension. The incident occurred Wednesday morning. ____________________ Election 2001: Turney tops in spending for school board race The top vote getter in the Lawrence school board election also spent the most money, preliminary campaign reports show. Austin Turney, who won re-election April 3, filed a report listing $5,127 in expenditures and $3,620 in donations. Turney and the seven other candidates in the race have until May 3 to deliver final reports to the Douglas County clerk listing campaign contributions and expenses. The five candidates who filed reports after the Feb. 27 primary collectively listed donations of $17,209 and expenditures of $17,109. Here are totals from the first reporting period: - Leni Salkind, who won re-election, had $2,629 in contributions and $2,174 in expenses. - Linda Robinson, who was elected and takes office July 1, had $3,745 in contributions and $4,929 in expenses. - Kurt Thurmaier, $4,440 in contributions and $2,389 in expenses. - Dale Vestal, $2,775 in contributions and $2,490 in expenses. Candidates Nicole Rials, Gordon Longabach and Greg Decker received reporting exemptions because they didn’t expect to spend more than $500. If a candidate spends over that limit, he or she must file a report by May 3. ____________________ Music store employees helped solve guitar theft Communication between area music stores led to the recovery of 11 guitars and an amplifier reported stolen Monday from a Lawrence music store. Employees at Mass Street Music, 1347 Mass., had faxed information about the stolen merchandise to dozens of music stores throughout the region in hopes that the guitars would surface, Lawrence Police said. When two men tried to sell a pair of guitars to an Independence, Mo., music store, employees there realized that the instruments were stolen and called police, Lawrence Police detectives said. Authorities recovered those two guitars at the Independence music store, and nine guitars and an amplifier at a Leavenworth residence. The equipment was returned to Mass Street Music on Tuesday. No arrests have been made, but reports on the incident will be forwarded to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office.
