Students collect baby items for Hoisington relief effort Students at Southwest Junior High on Friday collected more than 500 pounds of baby items to help tornado survivors in Hoisington. They also raised more than $200 in cash during a one-day event called “Hoisington Baby Day.” “We just called it that because we contacted Salvation Army and they said baby supplies and formula were what they needed,” said Bill Burke, above, a special education teacher at the school. “It started as a ninth-grade project and then branched out and included the whole school,” Burke said. The goods were loaded into Burke’s car, filling the trunk and back seat. He said he will personally deliver the items this weekend to the Salvation Army in Hoisington. __________________________ Beverage control: After-hours drinkin reported at Mass. St. bar Reports that a downtown Lawrence bar served alcohol after hours on Friday will be forwarded to the Kansas Alcoholic Beverage Control division. The alleged after-hours drinking was discovered at 2:30 a.m. Friday when a Lawrence police officer on routine patrol heard people making loud noises from behind Fatso’s, 1016 Mass. When the officer walked behind the tavern, he found two people drinking, police said. The officer then looked inside the bar and saw 15 to 20 other people, mostly employees, drinking alcohol, police said. The officer spoke with the on-site manager, informing him that it was illegal to serve or drink alcohol after 2 a.m. at the business. No citations were issued, police said. __________________________ Marijuana incident reported at West Junior High Lawrence Police identified two suspects in connection with a distribution of marijuana incident Thursday at West Junior High School. A 15-year-old boy was taken into custody and booked into the Juvenile Detention Center, and a 14-year-old boy was questioned but released to the custody of his parents, Sgt. Mike Pattrick said. Police responded at 1 p.m. Thursday to the school, 2700 Harvard Road, after a school official reported that students were found with marijuana. One student handed over an unspecified amount of marijuana after he was confronted by the official, Pattrick said. Lawrence school district officials reported that six eighth-graders and one ninth-grader were suspended for involvement in the alleged distribution or possession. No names were released by the district. The possibility that other students were involved in drug distribution was under investigation, Pattrick said, though no further information was released. If the students brought illegal substances into the school, it would be a violation of district policy. “It has severe consequences from the school and the local police department,” Supt. Randy Weseman said. __________________________ Lawrence mother convicted of burning infant son A Lawrence woman was found guilty Friday on one count of child abuse against her son. Stephanie M. Raby, 25, pleaded no contest Friday morning to burning her son, who was 24 days old. The child has since recovered, but the extent of his injuries weren’t known. She was found guilty in Douglas County District Court by Judge Paula Martin. Sentencing was scheduled for 3 p.m. June 15. The hearing was scheduled to last two hours.
