Medical resources: Health-care provider directory available online A directory of regulated health care providers across the state is available on the Web at www.kdhe.state.ks.us/ bhfr/index.html. The directory, on the home page of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, provides general information for approximately 1,400 health-care providers regulated by the department, including hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, residential providers of health care, ambulatory surgical centers, home health agencies, hospices, dialysis facilities, rural health clinics and rehabilitation clinics. The directory will be updated the first of every month. ________________ Construction: Douglas County bridge to close for resurfacing One of Douglas County’s bridges will be closed for about three weeks for repairs. The Douglas County Public Works Department plans to close County Road 1061, between County Road 460 and U.S. Highway 56, to through traffic, starting Wednesday. Wildcat Concrete Services, Topeka, is resurfacing the bridge deck as well as the roadway approach north and south of the bridge over Captain Creek. Keith Browning, the department’s director, said the work is being done to extend the life of the bridge, which is about 8 miles south of Kansas Highway 10. A marked detour will follow County Road 460 west to County Road 1055, following 1055 south to Highway 56 and then the highway to Road 1061. The project is expected to be completed and the bridge reopened by Aug. 8. ________________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol tracks down lowest prices in Lawrence The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.119 a gallon at Site Service Station, 946 E. 23rd St. If you find a lower price, please call us at 832-7154.

100 Years

On July 9, 1901, the Lawrence World noted a statement in the Centralia Journal which stated: “Over sixty of the Haskell Indians left Lawrence Saturday for their homes in various parts of the United States. They are graduates of the Haskell institute there and every mother’s son of them will be wearing a blanket on the reservation within a year and bid goodbye forever to soap.” The World commented “The above is not vicious. It is simply ignorance. The country at large has not yet grasped the fact that the new policy of dealing with the Indians is a success. Time was when the only good Indian was a dead one but that time has passed away. The Indian of today is as much a man as the whites. Now in this Indian problem has it never occurred to the public that the Lord has revenged the injuries done to the red race? History will bear out the statement that in colonial times when the wars of extermination were fiercest three white men were killed for every Indian. The savages went down before sheer force of numbers, not because they were wrong. Today the Indian is recognized as a human being and as he has responded nobly to the treatment given him as such. The bad feeling is passing away and it would disappear much sooner but for the thoughtless flings of the press of the country. A flippant remark carries with it misinformation and the newspapers should be as fair in dealing with the Indians as they are in dealing with the white race. The time has come to do justice to the red man.”
