Briefly_____________________________
May 24, 2001
Memorial Day: Deputies on lookout for drunken drivers Douglas County Sheriff’s officers will begin the Memorial Day weekend by searching for drunken drivers near Lone Star Lake. Officers will set up a sobriety checkpoint from 8:30 p.m. to midnight Friday at the intersection of County Road 1 and County Road 458. The checkpoint is part of a Kansas Department of Transportation grant program for highway safety. Officers arrested five people for DUI violations during checkpoints Feb. 4 and April 22 in Douglas County. ____________________ Military: New commander named at Fort Leavenworth Fort Leavenworth will get a new garrison commander in mid-June. Col. Kurt A. McNeely will take over as commander June 18. He will come to Leavenworth from the Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, Pa. McNeely succeeds Col. Frank Bohle, who relinquished command during a ceremony Tuesday at Fort Leavenworth. Bohle, who assumed command of the garrison in 1999, is being reassigned to the Pentagon, where he will be chief of the Special Operations Division on the Army staff. ____________________ Expansion: Police divisions begin move to new offices across town Some Lawrence Police officers began their cross-town move this week. The department’s training, detective and special projects divisions should be in their new offices at 4820 W. 15th St. by June 1, Det. John Lewis said. Some “nonessential” equipment such as boxes of paperwork already have been moved to the new offices. The 13,000-square-foot building is the former site of PSI Laboratories. It was purchased by the city to give the Police Department more space. ____________________ Congress: Moore, Moran appointed to Eisenhower commission U.S. Reps. Dennis Moore, D-Kan., and Jerry Moran, R-Kan., have been appointed to the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission. The appointments were made by House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill. The commission was established to consider and formulate plans for a permanent national memorial to native Kansan Dwight D. Eisenhower, who served as supreme commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II, and later became president. The commission will consist of four members of the Senate, four members of the House and four appointees of the president. Moore represents the state’s 3rd District; Moran, the 1st District. ____________________ Kansas University: Undergraduate classes planned at Edwards campus Kansas University will offer bachelor’s degree programs in English and biology this fall at its Edwards Campus in Johnson County. “These programs are intended to provide working professionals in greater Kansas City who have two years of college the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree from KU,” said Bob Clark, vice chancellor at the Edwards Campus. The new programs are being offered to meet the demands of the area’s employers and working adults, Clark said.
