Crime: Area residents charged with commercial gambling Three men charged with conducting commercial gambling at a Eudora tavern turned themselves in Tuesday to the Douglas County Jail. Gerald K. Dunavin, 48, Eudora, and Michael L. Garber, 32, McLouth, are charged with two counts each of commercial gambling. Larry O. Stewart, 59, Eudora, is charged with four counts of commercial gambling. Dunavin and Garber were then released on $1,500 bond each and Stewart was released on $2,000 bond. All are to appear in court at 2 p.m. Aug. 16. Warrants for their arrests were filed June 22, Douglas County Dist. Atty. Christine Kenney said. The charges stem from a sheriff’s investigation earlier this year at the Gilded Cage Tavern, just east of Eudora along Kansas Highway 10, Kenney said. Kenney did not say whether the suspects are employees of the club. She declined to release any other information about the investigation. Depending on a suspect’s previous criminal history, sentences for commercial gambling range from a minimum of seven months to a maximum of 23 months in prison, Kenney said. __________________________ Higher Education: Guide gives KU four stars,’best buy’ designation For the sixth-straight year, Kansas University has been named a “best buy” by Fiske Guide, an annual profile of 300 universities in the United States and Canada. KU is one of 21 public universities on the best buy list. The guide, released Wednesday, defines a best buy as a school that “offers remarkable education opportunities at a relatively modest cost.” Three other Big 12 schools were best buys. They were the University of Colorado, University of Texas and Baylor University. No other Kansas schools were listed in the guide. KU earned four of five stars for its academic programs. The guide lists architecture and urban design, education, environmental studies, journalism, nursing and pharmacy, social welfare and business as KU’s strongest programs. KU and the University of Oklahoma were the only two Big 12 schools named as “inexpensive,” or under $3,000 per year for tuition and fees at public schools. “The rest of the country is finally learning what folks in Kansas knew all along: The University of Kansas is one of the nation’s best buys in higher education,” the guide says. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.249 at numerous stations.

The 31-year-old man remained in the Douglas County Jail late Wednesday on charges of driving under the influence, obstruction of justice, battery on a law enforcement officer and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police were sent to the 1100 block of Tennessee Street about 10 p.m. Tuesday to investigate a reckless driver, a police report said. A man standing near a truck took off running and officers chased him on foot. The suspect was caught in the 1100 block of Kentucky Street. The man allegedly fought with officers and yelled profanities, the report said. A small amount of marijuana was found in the truck, police said. The man’s bond was set at $1,500. He is to appear in court at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 14. __________________________ Workshops prepare children for arrival of new siblings Lawrence Memorial Hospital will offer a free workshop called “Tyke Hyke,” from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday. The workshop will prepare prospective big brothers and sisters, ages 3 to 10, for the arrival of a new sibling. It will include a brief tour of the maternity unit, a possible peek at a newborn and a discussion and video about new babies. Advanced enrollment is required. Classes are limited to 10 children. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For more information or to enroll, call ConnectCare at 749-5800.
