Snake donated to center A diamondback water snake has found a new home to delight and thrill young students. Tuesday, the Prairie Park Nature Center, near 27th and Harper streets, received the 4-foot snake courtesy of Joe Collins, KU herpetologist emeritus, and his wife, Suzanne. Collins is shown in the photograph above with the water snake. The couple brought the snake back from a recent field trip of the Kansas Herpetological Society. One of the society’s members caught the snake along the Marais des Cygnes River near the small town of Trading Post, about an hour and a half southeast of Lawrence. Marty Birrell, the center’s education supervisor, said the snake will be a good addition to the collection of native Kansas snakes. The center currently has 29 of the 35 snakes native to the state. “I don’t think Joe is going to rest until we have one of every native species,” she said. Joe Collins said he next hopes to find a replacement Eastern Hognose for the dark brown and yellow one that was taken in January from the center. The snake was valued at $1,200. __________________________ Kansas University: Faculty, staff board bus for whirlwind tour of Kansas The fifth-annual Wheat State Whirlwind bus tour for 40 faculty and staff at Kansas University begins today. The tour is aimed at allowing faculty and staff members and especially those new to Kansas to learn more about the state’s history, culture, economy and landscape. The tour begins today in Kansas City with stops at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research and the Midwest Research Institute, then continues in Topeka with tours of the capitol and meetings with state officials. The group will go Monday to Burlington, Independence and Sedan; Tuesday to El Dorado, Wichita, Yoder and Hutchinson; Wednesday to Garden City; Thursday to Nicodemus, Logan, Palco and Hays; and Friday to Lucas and Salina. __________________________ Education: Free State senior wins national academic honor Free State High School senior John Anderson is drawing raves for being silly and serious. Thursday, he was pictured in the Journal-World’s Mag dressed in a duct-tape prom suit. He also was listed Thursday in USA Today as an honorable mention selection on the 15th annual All-USA High School Academic Team. “That’s great. I’m pleased,” said Anderson, who plans to study music at Hertford College of Oxford University in England. His interests also include physics, foreign languages and literature. “He’s really a Renaissance man,” said Free State teacher Janette Schwartzburg, who nominated Anderson. “He’s so versatile and has so many gifts and talents.” USA Today received 1,655 nominations, of which 60 were divided equally among first-, second-, and third-place teams. More than 60 made the honorable-mention squad. Kansas was represented with a third-team selection and four honorable mention picks. __________________________ Accident: Worker falls one story but refuses treatment A man who fell Thursday morning from a building at a construction site in southwestern Lawrence refused treatment from emergency personnel, authorities said. The construction employee was working at a site just southwest of the intersection of Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive. He fell one story but refused medical attention from Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical personnel who responded. A LifeFlight helicopter ambulance was dispatched to the scene but wasn’t needed. __________________________ Lawrence resident faces charge of stalking A Lawrence man was arrested for stalking and is scheduled to appear later this month in Douglas County District Court. Nick W. Raulston Jr., 28, was arrested Wednesday afternoon on an outstanding warrant. He is charged with one count of stalking a Lawrence woman, age unavailable. Charges were filed May 10 in the incident, which allegedly occurred Sept. 1, 2000, according to court records. Raulston this year pleaded guilty to vandalizing the woman’s vehicle on Jan. 21, court records indicate. He was sentenced to a year of probation and ordered to pay restitution and court costs. Raulston was released later Wednesday afternoon from the Douglas County Jail after posting $1,500 bond.
