City offers guided tour of downtown sculptures The Lawrence Arts Commission invites the public to join this year’s exhibition juror, Bob Soppelsa, on a guided tour of the 14th Annual Downtown Lawrence Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition. The tour begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday at the Lawrence Public Library east entrance, 707 Vt. The tour concludes at Teller’s Restaurant, 746 Mass., for an informal reception. Cross Action, above, a welded metal sculpture on the northeast corner of 8th and Mass. is by artist Donald Dynneson, Seward, Neb. For more information, call Michael Tubbs, city management analyst at 832-7813. __________________________ Society: Ball’s fund-raising efforts produce $118,000 for LMH This year’s second annual Hearts of Gold Ball benefit for Lawrence Memorial Hospital raised more than $118,000, hospital officials said. More than 600 people attended the event last month. It was sponsored by the LMH Endowment Assn. in the Classic Eagle Distributing Warehouse, 801 E. Ninth St. “The night was magical,” said Nancy Longhurst, chairperson for the Hearts of Gold Steering Committee said. “Our community pulled together to benefit a wonderful cause. Thank you to everyone who took part.” Funds raised by the ball will go toward paying for renovation of space for the Oncology Center at LMH. __________________________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol at work The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.189 a gallon at Site Service Station, East 23rd 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. __________________________ Watkins trust suit gets go-ahead from court The lawsuit filed by residents of Kansas University’s Watkins and Miller halls will be allowed to move forward, a judge ruled Thursday. Douglas County District Court Judge Jack Murphy rejected a request by attorneys from Bank of America and KU to dismiss the suit filed in March. The residents claim that the bank hasn’t used money left by Elizabeth Miller Watkins in 1939 to fix their aging buildings. Instead, they say, the bank has sent the money to KU, which has passed it on to the KU Endowment Association. The suit asks for “more than $75,000.” “I’m very pleased with the judge’s decision” said David Brown, the attorney representing the residents. “I’m eager for this matter to go forward. Hopefully, we’ll begin getting answers to questions we’ve been asking all along.” A KU spokeswoman and an attorney representing Bank of America both declined comment Friday, saying they hadn’t yet heard about Murphy’s ruling. __________________________ Perry resident charged in housefire incidents A Perry woman was arrested Thursday by Douglas County Sheriff’s officers for allegedly setting fire last year to a house in Eudora. Officers acted on a warrant charging Jill S. Lavin, 29, with one count of arson and one count of making a false writing. Douglas County Dist. Atty. Christine Kenney confirmed the charges. She would only add that the alleged violations occurred in March 2000. The court file on the case will not be available until after Lavin makes her first court appearance July 11. Eudora Fire Chief Spencer McCabe and Police Chief Bill Long said three fires occurred in February and March at a residence Lavin owned. The fires were investigated by police, the Kansas Fire Marshal’s Office and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical. McCabe and Long declined to discuss more details. Lavin was released on $7,500 bond. __________________________ Airlines changing locations at KCI Lawrence residents flying out of Kansas City International Airport in July may be a little disoriented when they return. That’s because the America West and Frontier airlines will temporarily relocate July 17 from Terminal A to Terminal C. The move is part of KCI’s phased construction plan for the Terminal Improvement Project. Travelers who leave their cars in the Terminal A garage before the move date will need to take the Red Bus to reach their cars if they return after July 17. Construction has put a crunch on roadways as well as terminals. Some traffic lanes are closed to make room for tented walkways. Curb space is limited, so officials suggest using the 30 minutes free parking in the garages and circle lots instead of parking at the curb. Passengers are also advised to arrive 30 minutes earlier than usual and to watch for signs directing them around construction zones. For construction updates, access www.iflykansascity.com on the Web, call the 24-hour automated line at (816) 243-3KCI, or listen to the airport’s radio station, 1610 AM.
