Lawrence museum tapped by National Park Service Watkins Community Museum of History was recently designated as a National Park Service Underground Railroad Network to Freedom facility. The designation provides the museum with national recognition and admittance to the program’s Web site database. Network to Freedom recognizes facilities in the U.S. that meet criteria set by the National Park Service and that make a significant contribution to understanding Underground Railroad history. Watkins has exhibits, photos, books and documents of the Underground Railroad in Douglas County. _______________ Universities: Consultants to evaluate Kansas higher education Topeka Consultants hired by the Kansas Board of Regents to do a study on higher education will be visiting the state several times. Officials with the Northern Education Research Center of Olympia, Wash., were awarded a $125,000 contract to make recommendations on improving the higher education system in Kansas. Their report is due later this year. As part of the study, the consultants will visit with numerous state leaders, including Gov. Bill Graves. They also will visit officials at all public universities, community colleges and technical schools. _______________ Community: Center expanding volunteer opportunity information The Roger Hill Volunteer Center is offering a new service for Lawrence residents looking to do some service of their own. The center, sponsored by the Douglas County United Way, now lists more than 200 service opportunities on its Web site. By going to www.rhvc.org, one can access volunteer work descriptions and contact information from 100 nonprofit agencies. For those without Internet access, the center suggests using the library’s free computer services. The center also can provide printed copies of volunteer opportunities. For more information, call the Roger Hill Volunteer Center, 2518 Ridge Court, at 865-5030. _______________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol tracks down lowest prices in Lawrence The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.169 a gallon at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets.
