Goal in county’s contest is to bring home the bacon Contestants of all ages battled each other to see who could catch pigs first and claim the prize during the greased-pig competition this week at the Gray County Fair in Cimarron. Participant Dean Miller, 7, Ingalls, left, closes in on the chase. __________________________ Safety: Power line mishap leads to worker’s electrocution Clearwater A man performing maintenance work on brine wells was electrocuted when an oil-field work truck touched a high-voltage power line, authorities said. Sedgwick County Sheriff’s officers said the accident occurred at 12:12 p.m. Thursday in a remote field about four miles west of Clearwater. The 21-year-old man, whose name was not released Thursday, was taken to a hospital where he later died. Two other men were taken to a hospital with serious burns. Sgt. Richard Fesler said the men were working for Pratt Well Service on brine wells operated by Vulcan Chemicals. All three men, who were on or near the truck, were knocked to the ground when the boom hit the 25-foot-high power line, Fesler said. __________________________ Community: Book sale to benefit school Overland Park The 35th annual Brandeis used book sale will begin at 6 p.m. today and run through 3 p.m. Aug. 4, inside Metcalf South Shopping Center, 95th Street and Metcalf Avenue, Overland Park.

Stanley and Beth Friesen of Prairie Village have created a charitable gift annuity with the KU Endowment Assn., which means they will donate the money upon their deaths. At their request, the endowment association did not release the amounts of the gifts. Stanley Friesen was a 1943 KU graduate and professor of surgery from 1949 to 1989. He also served as a lecturer and professor in History and Philosophy of Medicine from 1987 to 1989, when he retired. Part of the money donated will support a lectureship in the History and Philosophy of Medicine Department.
