Utilities: CURB attorney to speak to Chamber Walker Hendrix, who leads a state consumer agency fighting Western Resources’ rate-hike request, will be the guest speaker Wednesday at the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce government communications committee meeting. The meeting will start at noon at the Douglas County Bank, 300 W. Ninth St. It is open and free to the public. Hendrix is public counsel for the Citizens Utility Ratepayer Board, which represents residential and business consumers. Western Resources is seeking a $151 million rate increase that would raise KPL rates by 19.6 percent and KGE rates 10 percent. Hendrix’s office has recommended a decrease in rates. The Kansas Corporation Commission is expected to make a decision in the case this month. ______________ Hospitals: Kemper grant to fund renovations at LMH The William T. Kemper Foundation, Commerce Bank trustee, will present a $120,000 grant today to the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Endowment Assn. The grant, payable over a three-year period, will got toward renovation of the Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Unit at LMH. The grant check will be presented at 10 a.m. at the hospital to Chief Executive Gene Meyer. Making the check presentation on behalf of the Kemper Foundation will be Community Bank President Mark Gonzales. The Cardiac Rehabilitation Center is a program designed to safely and swiftly return patients to an optimal level of health and activity following heart attacks, heart surgeries and angioplasties. It is also used for patients who have been diagnosed with unstable angina or coronary artery disease. “We have been unable to accommodate all qualified candidates in the past,” said Kathy Clausing, chief development officer at LMH. “This generous grant will help us to expand our current space and allow us to serve many more patients in need.” ______________ 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. The price is $1.109 a gallon at Casey’s General Store, Eudora.

Was the fix in during Pepsi 400?
It was as if the field was under orders to let Earnhardt Jr. have all the air time on NBC
July 10, 2001
The reviews are in, and NASCAR should be thrilled. Not only did the Pepsi 400 get good ratings, people are questioning if what they saw was real.
