Agriculture squad attacks fire ant colonies State agriculture officials spent much of Tuesday and Wednesday trying to get rid of imported fire ants in a Lawrence neighborhood. Glenn Salsbury, in the photo at left, and two other officials from the Kansas Department of Agriculture have sprayed seven known colonies near the southwest corner of 24th Street and Inverness Drive with an insecticide. Wednesday, the group laid out small, white cards soaked in peanut oil to attract the ants and to see if they had moved their nest. The agriculture officials said they plan to monitor the situation in the neighborhood today and probably Friday. Their goal is to eliminate the colonies. A public meeting to update neighbors about the situation is scheduled at 9 a.m. Saturday in the cafeteria at Southwest Junior High School, 2511 Inverness Drive. __________________________ Appointment: Former district attorney to fill interim federal post A Douglas County man was named Kansas’ interim U.S. Attorney on Wednesday, a temporary replacement for the outgoing Jackie Williams, who served five years in the post. Jim Flory, a Lawrence native, was named interim U.S. attorney for Kansas by U.S. Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft. Flory, who was sworn in Wednesday, had been an assistant U.S. attorney since 1991 and will fill the post until Williams’ permanent replacement is selected by President George Bush. No word on Williams’ successor was available. Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., has forwarded suggestions to the White House for three Kansas positions U.S. Attorney, a federal district judge and a U.S. Marshal but wouldn’t disclose the list of names, said Erik Hotmire, Brownback’s press secretary. Flory was elected Douglas County district attorney in 1984 and 1988. He was the criminal division chief in the Kansas Attorney General’s office and was a deputy Douglas County sheriff from 1972 to 1979. Flory and his wife, Donna, live in rural Douglas County. __________________________ Transportation: ‘T’ to alter bus routes for parade, bicycle race A parade and bicycle race Saturday are forcing the “T” to alter its bus routes. The one-hour annual Art Tougeau parade begins at noon Saturday and closes Massachusetts Street between 12th and Sixth streets.

The public meeting, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Central Junior High School auditorium, 1400 Mass., will focus on drugs, sex, alcohol, issues and choices teens face. A panel of experts will give insight on the pressures that affect teen-agers, particularly those preparing to enter high school. __________________________
