Chocolate lovers’ hearts in the right place Saturday The Community Drop-In Center held its first ever fund-raiser Saturday at Abe and Jake’s Landing, 8 E. Sixth St. More than 100 people nibbled on chocolate candies, cakes, brownies and muffins donated by local businesses for the “Chocolate and Tea at Three” fund-raiser. Between bites, benefit-goers placed silent auction bids on autographed sports memorabilia, gift certificates, wine and other goods provided by Lawrence businesses. Proceeds from the event will help the center provide services for Lawrence residents who are homeless, low-income and in-need. __________________________ Kansas University: Chemistry carnival caters to younger students today More than 500 elementary and middle school students and their parents are expected to attend the Carnival of Chemistry today at Kansas University. The event, in its eighth year, is from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. this afternoon at Malott Hall. Activities include a slime pit, laser demonstration, a computer-graphics demonstration of how art is used to visualize molecules and a demonstration of why popcorn loses weight when popped. Free parking for the carnival is available in lot 90, at Naismith Drive and 18th Street; lot 62, at Sunnyside Avenue and Illinois Street; the lots near Memorial Stadium; and the garage next to the Kansas Union. The event is sponsored by the chemistry department and the KU section of the American Chemical Society. __________________________ Education: KU announces finalists for annual HOPE award Kansas University has announced the finalists for this year’s Honor for the Outstanding Progressive Educator Award. Senior class members voted to narrow the 19 HOPE nominees to six finalists. Class officers will interview the finalists and select the winner. The winner, who will be announced at KU’s home football game Saturday, will receive a cash prize of $250 to $300 and have his or her name etched on a plaque in the Kansas Union. This year’s finalists are Lawrence Baden, assistant professor of journalism; Allan Cigler, professor of political science and government; Dennis Dailey, professor of social welfare; Alice Lieberman, associate professor of social welfare; Craig Martin, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, and Joane Nagel, professor of sociology and interim dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Dailey was a HOPE Award winner in 1994, and Lieberman won the award in 1999. __________________________ Restaurant patron arrested Lawrence Police arrested a 21-year-old Topeka man early Saturday after he brandished a handgun in a Lawrence restaurant. Officers responded about 3:45 a.m. Saturday to Perkins, 1711 W. 23rd St., where a man apparently was pointing a gun at restaurant patrons, Police Sgt. Farik Khatib said. A 24-year-old Lawrence man told police he and the suspect had been arguing, when the suspect pulled a black 9 mm-style handgun from his waistband and pointed it at the victim, Khatib said. The suspect then started pointing the gun at other people in the restaurant, threatening to shoot everyone, Khatib said. He said officers seized a surveillance tape from the restaurant but have not recovered a weapon. __________________________ Wichita Army reservists called to active duty Wichita The 3405th Military Intelligence Detachment, based in Wichita, has been ordered to active duty, U.S. Army Reserve officials announced Wednesday. The unit composed of soldiers from Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas is the fifth unit from the 89th Regional Support Command to be activated. The 89th RSC is one of 10 major subordinate Army Reserve commands in the United States. As of Thursday, 14,277 Army reserve-force soldiers had been called to active duty.
