Construction: Haskell ceremony marks cultural center’s progress Haskell Indian Nations University officials will host a “log-raising” ceremony Friday to celebrate the start of above-ground construction on the school’s $1.3 million cultural center and museum. The 6,048-square-foot facility’s exterior features pre-cut cypress logs donated by a Florida company. Local contractors include Harris Construction and Oliver Electric. Sabatini & Associates is the project’s architect. The ceremony begins at 1 p.m. at the construction site at Barker and Pawnee avenues with a prayer service led by a representative of the Seminole tribe in Florida. After the ceremony, Haskell officials will play host to a reception at nearby Stidham Union. The cultural center and museum at Haskell is the 24th of 29 such facilities being built at tribal colleges throughout the United States. The campaign is a project of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium. __________________________ Humanities: University research center receives endowment grant Kansas University Center for Research Inc., is among 389 organizations receiving grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The research center received $40,500 under the public programs, which fund film documentaries and radio programs, exhibitions, library programs, special projects and model projects. The money will go toward a series of programs on the poetry of Langston Hughes, who lived in Lawrence as a child. The 2002 series will commemorate the centennial of Hughes’ birth. The National Endowment for the Humanities, created in 1965, supports learning in history, literature, philosophy and other areas of the humanities. The endowment grants are awarded on a competitive basis. Humanities experts outside the endowment assess the applications and judge the quality and significance of each proposed project. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump patrol tracks down lowest prices in Lawrence The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.179 at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets, and Conoco, Sixth Street and Crestline Drive. If you find a lower price, please call us at 832-7154. Be prepared to leave the name and address of the business and the price. Or go to www.ljworld.com/section/gasoline to join our Pump Patrol message board. __________________________ ECKAN election set today ECKAN will have an election for low-income representation on its board of directors from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. today, which is also commodity day for Douglas County, at ECKAN Center, 1600 Haskell St., No. 197. ECKAN clients are eligible to vote if they are 18 or older and low-income residents of Douglas County. __________________________ Broadcasting engineer remains at KU Med Center Bruce Mensie, the Kansas University broadcast engineer injured on the job Tuesday, remained hospitalized in serious condition Wednesday at KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan. Janet Campbell, Mensie’s boss at KANU Radio and the Kansas Audio-Reader Network, said doctors still were determining the extent of his injuries, though he did have bleeding near his brain. He was out of the intensive care unit but will remain hospitalized for much of the week, Campbell said. Mensie was installing equipment on a satellite dish near Seneca, in north-central Kansas, when he fell from a 6- to 8-foot ladder. He drove himself to a hospital in Seneca and was later transferred to the KU Medical Center.
