CASA playhouse awarded to children’s outdoor center Martha Patterson of Topeka is the proud new owner of the 10th annual Casa for CASA playhouse. Patterson won the playhouse Sunday at a drawing at Community Mercantile Co-op, Ninth and Iowa streets. Each year, Douglas County Court Appointed Special Advocates holds a playhouse fund-raiser to benefit the nonprofit organization for abused and neglected children. Leslie McCaffrey, a CASA board member and project coordinator, said Patterson has a children’s outdoor education center and bought $200 worth of tickets. “There will be a lot of children who get to use it,” McCaffrey said. Money from the fund-raiser will be totaled by Wednesday. Past events have raised as much as $10,000. The playhouse is usually constructed by a local builder, but this year the CASA board constructed the house. “It was kind of a unique year for the playhouse,” McCaffrey said. ______________ Entertainment: Imagination Workshop seeks comedy performers The Imagination Workshop, the nationally broadcast comedy show produced at KANU at Kansas University, is having auditions for the 2001-02 season, which begins Oct. 6 at Liberty Hall. Producer Darrell Brogdon seeks versatile performers with a flair for comedy and celebrity impressions, dialects and funny voices. Singing ability is a plus. To audition, send a demo tape, which may be a nonreturnable audiocassette or compact disc, but not a video, by Aug. 13 to Darrell Brogdon, c/o The Imagination Workshop, KANU, 1400 Hoch Auditoria Drive, Lawrence 66045. The Imagination Workshop, a three-time winner of the gold medal at the New York Festivals for Best Comedy Show and for Best Writing, is aired on 11 public radio stations nationwide. In September, the program will be seen as well as heard in its first series on public television. ______________ Philanthropy: Douglas County projects receive crime victims’ funds Three Douglas County programs are among 39 Kansas projects that will receive a total of $835,219 for 2002 from state crime victims’ funds. The Douglas County Victim Offender Reconciliation Program will receive $21,000 from the Crime Victims’ Assistance Fund to help crime victims recover from financial loss, physical suffering and emotional trauma. The fund is generated from fines and forfeits received from district courts. Douglas County CASA will receive $8,618 from Crime Victims’ Assistance Fund for Child Abuse and Neglect to provide emergency shelter, counseling and assistance to victims and educational services directed at reducing child abuse and its effect on victims. The fund is generated from court docket fees. The Farm will receive $36,000 from the State Child Exchange and Visitations fund to provide services for children and families in need of supervised visitations. The fund comes from money collected from marriage license fees and from federal funds. ______________ Gasoline costs: Pump patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.179 at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets. 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.

Then when you factor in the heat and the fact parents were more than eager to get back home after a long weekend at the Sunflower State Games, it would be easy to understand how the kids could have been content with just getting this one over.
