Police: Motel employee battered An employee at the Bismarck Inn of Lawrence, 1130 N. Third St., was injured in a battery early Saturday morning, Lawrence Police said. Officers and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical were sent to the motel about 3:30 a.m. to check on the victim, identified as a 30-year-old Lawrence man. The victim said he had been approached by a man concerning a court case. The suspect asked him to lie about the case as a witness, a police report said. When the victim refused, he was beaten. Police would not disclose any details regarding the suspect’s pending court case. The victim suffered a cut to his left eye and bruises to his rib cage, the report said. Medical technicians treated the man at the scene, but he was not transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, a Fire & Medical report said. __________________ Exchange programs: Hemenway returns from Russia, Ukraine Kansas University Chancellor Robert Hemenway has returned from a nearly two-week visit to KU exchange programs in Russia and Ukraine. “I was pleased to see how successful our exchange programs are,” Hemenway said Monday after returning from St. Petersburg, Russia, and Lviv, Ukraine. Hemenway lectured on African-American literature at universities in both cities. Asked how his lectures were received, Hemenway said he wasn’t sure, but at St. Petersburg, he was given flowers. The trip was coordinated by Maria Carlson, director of KU’s Center for Russian and East European Studies. “The trip went very well,” Carlson said. “The chancellor had a real good opportunity to get an update on how we are doing in the Ukraine and Russia.” __________________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol at work The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as: $1.46.9 a gallon at Miller Mart at 19th Street and Haskell Avenue.
