Haskell to get $54,000 for arch renovations Representatives of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Tribal Council are expected to donate $54,000 today to Haskell Indian Nations University officials. The money will underwrite efforts to restore the Haskell Arch and Stadium. Haskell officials expect to receive the donation during a 10 a.m. ceremony today at Stidham Union. Last month, above photo, the Haskell community celebrated the 75th anniversary of the arch and stadium’s completion. __________________________ America responds: Legislator called to D.C. to help fight terrorism State Rep. Lee Tafanelli, an Ozawkie Republican, has been called to active duty to help out in the war against terrorism. A lieutenant colonel in the Kansas Army National Guard, Tafanelli said he couldn’t be specific about his assignment, but that it will be at the Pentagon and involves homeland security. The 40-year-old computer software salesman is married with two children. Tafanelli said he expects to return to Kansas before the legislative session starts Jan. 14 but said events could change that. Tafanelli represents most of Jefferson County and a part of northeastern Douglas County. __________________________ Elections: Kline to kick off campaign for Kansas attorney general A former state representative who ran unsuccessfully against U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore last year is expected to announce his candidacy for state attorney general today. Phill Kline, a conservative Republican from Shawnee, said Wednesday he would meet with reporters and supporters at 12:30 p.m. today on the east steps of the Douglas County Courthouse, 111 E. 11th. Kline, a 41-year-old attorney, is former chairman of the budget and tax committees in the Kansas House of Representatives. Kline said he’s making campaign appearances in 13 cities today and Friday. State Sen. David Adkins, R-Leawood, announced his candidacy for attorney general earlier this year. Adkins is from the GOP’s moderate wing. __________________________ Kansas University: Audit aims to reduce university energy costs Kansas University has begun an audit aimed at conserving energy. The audit, conducted by CMS-Viron Energy Services in Overland Park, will examine the university’s power plant, ventilation systems and lighting, looking for ways to save money. The audit is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The 2000 Kansas Legislature approved “performance contracting,” which allows money saved from the audit to pay for upgrades to KU’s energy systems during the next 20 years. Provost David Shulenburger last week distributed a memo outlining rules for energy conservation this winter. KU estimates the university saved $335,000 in energy bills last year. KU spent $8 million on energy costs during fiscal year 2001. __________________________ Crime: Police confiscate drugs, gun from teen-agers Six juveniles were arrested Monday afternoon by Lawrence Police after someone reported a burglary in progress. Police responded about 12:15 p.m. to the 3900 block of West 11th Street to check a red, four-door vehicle seen in the area where suspects were reportedly breaking into a house, Sgt. Mike Pattrick said. The vehicle was not there, but a patrol officer saw it in the 1000 block of Monterey Way and stopped it. Six juveniles three 16-year-old boys and three 15-year-old boys were found in the vehicle. Police confiscated an undisclosed amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a .38-caliber pistol, Pattrick said. The boys were taken to the Police Department and then turned over to the Juvenile Intake Assessment Center. The boys eventually were released to their parents. Charges are pending.
