Local artist commissioned to make presidential statue Lawrence artist Jim Brothers has been selected to create a sculpture of former president Dwight Eisenhower. After a nationwide search, Brothers’ model for the sculpture was one of three chosen for final judging. The judging panel included both Kansas and national officials, Brothers said. Although Brothers said he did not know the final details yet, he expects the statue to be about 10 feet tall. He said it will be displayed in the Hall of Statues at the U.S. Capitol Building. __________________________ Election 2004: Lawrence eyes application to have presidential debate Lawrence may apply to play host to one of the 2004 presidential debates as part of the city’s 150th birthday celebrations. Sue Hack, a city commissioner and a member of the city’s sesquicentennial committee, said Friday that committee members are mulling an application to have a debate at Kansas University. The debates, wherever they are, usually are the finale to a week of historical and political seminars, she said. “When you think about the history of Lawrence, and you think about the hotbed of debates we’ve had here, it seems natural,” Hack said. “It would be nice to showcase that history, even to our own citizens.” First, though, the city must audition. “They have to check the facilities, the community commitment to it,” said Diana Carlin, a KU dean on an advisory board for the Commission on Presidential Debates. “I don’t have connections good enough to get us the debate,” she said, but, “I think we can sell this as well as anybody.” __________________________ Community: Area lawyers honored Topeka Attorneys Ethan Potter, Leavenworth, and Otto Stites, Lawrence, were honored by the Kansas Bar Assn. at its annual meeting June 7, for having practiced law for 50 years. The organization represents lawyers throughout Kansas, works to improve the administration of the Kansas justice system and works to develop public understanding of the law. __________________________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol tracks down lowest prices in Lawrence The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.199 a gallon at Miller Mart, 19th Street and Haskell Avenue.
