LEGISLATURE Bill bans human cloning research
May 4, 2001
srothschild@ljworld.com Topeka — The House gave preliminary approval Thursday to a bill designed to spur more research at state universities, but included an amendment prohibiting research on human cloning.
Briefly____________________
May 4, 2001
Kansas University: Memorial garden dedicated Kansas University law school officials dedicated a memorial garden to Mary Ann Mize Dickinson during a ceremony Thursday. Dickinson was the wife of Martin B. Dickinson Jr., who served as law school dean from 1971 to 1980 and continues to teach law classes. She died in 1996. Shelley Hickman Clark, associate dean for administration of the law school, said Dickinson was known for serving as host of receptions at her home for first-year law students and helping new faculty feel comfortable in Lawrence. The garden, east of Green Hall, includes benches, redbud trees and a plaque. The idea for a garden came from Dru Sampson, a KU law school graduate and former development officer for KU Endowment Association. The endowment association raised $35,000 for the garden and continues to seek funds for its maintenance. __________________________ Illness outbreaks: State agencies to discuss animal disease plan Livestock, law enforcement and other officials will gather next week in Topeka to review the state’s plans for dealing with an outbreak of a contagious animal disease. The meeting is being organized by the Kansas Animal Health Department, the United States Department of Agriculture and the Kansas Division of Emergency Management. They held a similar exercise in May 1999. Participants will include representatives from the Kansas Department of Agriculture, the Highway Patrol, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Health and Environment, county extension agents, county law enforcement officials, commodity groups, the Kansas National Guard and county emergency management coordinators. George Teagarden, livestock commissioner for the Animal Health Department, said handling an outbreak would take cooperation from many agencies. __________________________ Historic award: House Building receives preservation plaque A new bronze sunflower plaque adorns the side of the House Building, noting a tribute from the Kansas Preservation Alliance. The building, erected in 1858, is the oldest business structure in downtown Lawrence. It contains Francis Sporting Goods, 731 Mass., and Brown Bear Brewing Co., 729 Mass. The House Building was placed on the Kansas State Historical Register last year and honored by the state preservation alliance for the quality of its restoration. The preservation award is one of a handful given in Lawrence for the renovation of historic buildings, said Dennis Enslinger, Lawrence historic resources administrator. Mike Davis, above, of Deggingers’ Foundry Inc. of Topeka, installed the silicon bronze plaque Thursday on the House Building. __________________________ Safe Kids: Hundreds of third-graders expected for fitness event More than 600 third-graders from Lawrence, Baldwin and Edgerton are expected to participate in the Kansas Kids Fitness Day today in Lawrence. The event, which focuses on noncompetitive physical activity, is co-sponsored by Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the Douglas County Safe Kids Coalition. Participatory events for the students include 10 activity stations, with themes ranging from parachutes to nutrition. Fitness Day activities will be at 10 a.m. today at Kansas University’s Memorial Stadium. In case of rain, the event will be moved to Anschutz Sports Pavilion at KU.

The target merely sets a budget ceiling; actual tax-cut legislation must be passed separately, and many details are still undefined.

Soundoff on grafitti
May 4, 2001
Doesn’t Lawrence have a graffiti ordinance requiring property owners to cover graffiti within a specific period of time? Graffiti has been on the Borders store for at least a week and a half. City Manager Mike Wildgen said there is an ordinance. He said: “After proper notice concerning the graffiti is given to the property owner, the owner has 14 days from the date of the notice to remove the graffiti. The code provides the owner an opportunity to appeal the removal of the graffiti. If the owner does not appeal, or if the owner is unsuccessful on appeal, and fails to timely remove the graffiti in the manner specified in the code, the city will cause the graffiti to be removed and the costs of the removal will be a personal obligation of the owner and a lien on the property. A property owner who, after proper notice, fails to remove the graffiti may be convicted of a municipal offense and punished by a fine of not less than $250 or more than $1,000, and/or by imprisonment for not more than 6 months.”
