Crime: Distributor offers reward for information in shooting Classic Eagle Distribution is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of suspects who fired a gunshot Wednesday afternoon at one of its delivery vans northeast of Lawrence. The money will be added to a Crime Stoppers reward, Douglas County Sheriff’s Lt. Ken Massey said. Crime Stoppers reward amounts vary from case to case, Massey said. The Classic Eagle van was traveling on U.S. Highway 24-40 near the Paradise Saloon when one of two masked men in a pickup truck fired a shot at it from a rifle, Massey said. The van was not struck, he said. The truck was described as a late 1970s or early 1980s Ford half-ton, Massey said. The truck was black but it looked like it had been spray painted with a can, Massey said. Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 843-TIPS, and callers may remain anonymous. The Sheriff’s Office also can be called direct at 841-0007. ____________ Reunion: ‘60s and ‘70s KU activists in Lawrence for celebration About 90 Kansas University campus activists from the late 1960s are registered for a three-day reunion that kicked off Thursday night with a reception at Liberty Hall. “A lot of people think this is only for those who were seriously politically active from like 1969 to 1972, but our intent is make it broad enough to include anyone who’s interested in looking back at where they were then and where they are now,” said Wayne Sailor, who once published Reconstruction and Vortex, the area’s underground newspapers. He is now a KU professor and one of the reunion’s organizers. Reunion events include: Forums and discussions all day today at Plymouth Congregationalist Church, 925 Vt. Live music and barbecue, 8 p.m. today, at The TeePee, U.S. Highways 40 and 59. Registration still can be made in person today with Caroljean Brune at Plymouth Congregational Church. ____________ Health: Bert Nash gets grant to expand WRAP program Bert Nash Mental Health Center will soon receive a $803,000 federal grant to expand its services. The Department of Health and Human Services grant is designed to help Bert Nash put its Working to Recognize Alternative Possibilities program better known as WRAP in elementary schools in Douglas County. The program already has proven effective in middle schools and high schools in Lawrence, Baldwin and Eudora. The office of U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore, R-Kan., announced awarding of the grant. ____________ Gasoline costs: Pump patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.199 at the Citgo station in North Lawrence.
