it's your turn

For all the times she told you to wear your hat and mittens. For all the times she made you eat your vegetables. For all the times she scraped crayon off the walls, picked up your toys, "reminded" you of curfew, hauled you off to practice.

Now it's your turn to "Tattle on Your Mom." In honor of Mother's Day -- Sunday, May 13 -- the Journal-World wants to honor Lawrence mothers for all they do.

Send us your favorite Mom saying, Mom story, Mom advice, Mom hairdo/outfit/makeup tip or Mom recipe. We'll pick our favorite "tattle tales" and run them on -- when else -- Mother's Day. Some Moms may be contacted for a photograph, so make sure it's cool with her first.

There are three ways to tattle: call 832-7254, e-mail or mail your tale to "Tattle on Your Mom," Lawrence Journal-World, 609 N.H., P.O. Box 888, Lawrence 66044-0888. Please include your name and telephone number and, if she's game, a way to contact your mother. The deadline is Friday.

KU organist receives prestigious prize

Robert Horton, a Kansas University graduate student in organ performance, has won a Fulbright student award for 2001-2002. In March, Horton also learned he had won first prize in the 2001 Arthur Poister Organ Competition.

The Fulbright award will allow Horton to study in France for an academic year. He hopes to study at the Conservatoire National de Region in Toulouse.

Horton was chosen as a finalist in the Poister competition based on a performance recorded at KU's Bales Organ Recital Hall. For the final round, he performed three selections at Park Central Presbyterian Church in Syracuse, N.Y.

He will receive a $1,500 prize when he presents a full-length solo concert in the fall at Crouse College in Syracuse. He also will be featured this summer at the 2001 Region II Convention of the American Guild of Organists in Binghamton, N.Y.

Horton studies with KU professor James Higdon and is a graduate teaching assistant. He is the sixth student from Higdon's studio to receive a Fulbright.
