Wilt’s heart belonged to Philly
June 13, 2001
As the Lakers and 76ers vie for the NBA title this week, it is hard not to remember a certain giant whose legend looms over both cities in this championship series.

Briefly
June 13, 2001
Artist’s fallen sculpture set upright by volunteers After three months of lying in the weeds, artist Elden Tefft’s 700-pound bronze sculpture finally was set upright last week. In March, vandals knocked over the sculpture, shown above, which depicts a man leaning on his knee. It was outside Tefft’s home at 1315 Naismith Drive. “We either needed a crane or six sizable young men” to set it upright, Tefft said. On Thursday, Renee Caldwell, a computer technician at Kansas University, gathered about eight men including her husband, friends, co-workers and a passing jogger to lift it back onto its stone base. “It’s a piece I’ve been admiring for years,” Caldwell said. “I drive past it when I go to work.” Tefft said the sculpture, which he made about 15 years ago, was relatively unharmed. He has created several statues displayed in Lawrence, including the Jayhawk perched outside Strong Hall and the kneeling figure of Moses at Smith Hall, both on the KU campus. “We felt pretty grateful for anyone who cared that much,” Tefft said. __________________________ Transportation: KDOT to distribute surveys Officials from the Kansas Department of Transportation will continue handing out surveys today and Thursday to drivers near Lawrence. The surveys, which also were handed out Tuesday, poll the origins and destinations of drivers to determine future roadway needs. Motorists will be stopped and handed a postage-paid card to be completed and returned to KDOT. Drivers passing through more than one survey point per trip are asked to complete only one card for that trip. However, commuters receiving a survey on the way to work and another on the way home are asked to complete both survey cards. The surveys will be distributed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the following locations: Kansas Turnpike Lecompton, West Lawrence, East Lawrence and Eastern Terminal toll plazas; Kansas Highway 10, east of the traffic signal at Harper Street; U.S. highways 40/59, north of I-70; U.S. 59, south of 35th Street; and U.S. 40, west of K-10. __________________________ Lost and found: Missing memorial stone returned The stone memorial reported missing by a Kansas University sculpture student reappeared Sunday outside the Art and Design Building. Steve McFarland, 30, had been carving the limestone slab into a memorial for his uncle, who died three years ago. It featured his uncle dancing with his granddaughter, and McFarland planned to place it either at his uncle’s grave or at his home in Independence, Mo. But the limestone chunk, which weighed 200 to 250 pounds, was taken May 22. A story about the disappearing limestone appeared in Saturday’s Journal-World. On Sunday, someone dumped the stone 15 to 20 feet from where McFarland left it. “I figure someone just saw it, thought it was abandoned and took it,” he said. “I don’t know, and I don’t really care that much because I got it back. They returned it that’s the most important thing.” McFarland plans to begin working on the project again this week and hopes to complete it by the end of the summer. __________________________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol at work The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as: $1.469 a gallon at Miller Mart at 19th Street and Haskell Avenue. If you find a lower price, please call us at 832-7154. Be prepared to leave the name of the business, the address and the price. Or go to www.ljworld.com /section/gasoline to join our Pump Patrol message board with your gas price information. __________________________ Auction to benefit Lecompton family An auction to benefit the family of a Lecompton man killed over the weekend in a vehicle crash in Leavenworth County is planned this month. Donations of items to be auctioned, as well as food and money, are needed. Proceeds will go to Jennifer Bedford, widow of Rusty Bedford, and her two young sons, Tyler and Cameron. The auction will be held at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 29, at the Lecompton Elementary School. To donate items, or for more information, call Jeannie Hansen, 887-6997, or JoAnn Payne, 887-6772. __________________________ Commission to consider Pendleton permits A rural Douglas County couple hopes to receive approval to expand the type of products sold on their farm. County commissioners tonight will consider the request for a conditional use permit by John and Karen Pendleton. Their property is located about one mile east of the East Hills Business Park. The permit would allow the Pendletons to sell products not directly produced on the farm such as soil, mulch and items related to their annual maze. Commissioners also will: Consider approving a conditional use permit for a shop/storage shed on three acres at the northeast corner of North Ninth and Oak streets, just outside the city limits. Consider approving a grant application for community corrections. The meeting starts at 6:35 p.m. at the county courthouse, 1100 Mass.
