Kansas University: English department awards professorships The first four Esther Conger Gabel and M. Wren Gabel English professors have been named by Kansas University. The Gabels, KU graduates in the early 1930s, donated money to create the three-year, rotating professor positions. They live in Rochester, N.Y. The four professors are: Giselle Anatol, an assistant professor who specializes in African-American and Caribbean literature. David Bergeron, a professor who specializes in English Renaissance subjects such as Shakespeare and King James. Amy Devitt, a professor who specializes in composition and rhetoric. Paul Stephen Lim, a playwright who has developed the English Alternative Theatre, the only play-producing organization in a U.S. university English department. ___________________ Health initiatives: Local organizations win recognition grants Five Douglas County organizations have been awarded recognition grants from the Kansas Health Foundation. The grants, given twice a year, are designed to promote activities that improve children’s health. This spring, the foundation chose these organizations: Douglas County Dental Clinic $12,000 to support an effort to make dental care available to those in need in Douglas County. Headquarters Inc. $13,640 to support a 24-hour suicide prevention hot line for Kansans in need. Kansas Advocates for Better Care $25,000 to provide information about nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Kansas University $25,000 to provide training for educators and parents to promote healthy lifestyle choices for children. USD 497/Lawrence High School $1,000 to support drug- and alcohol-free activities. ___________________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol at work The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.399 a gallon at the Conoco stations at 23rd and Harper streets and 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue, and the Miller Mart at 19th Street and Haskell Avenue.
