LMH fair helps smokers during Smokeout day A Stop Smoking Fair and a talk by a pulmonologist were Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s contributions to the Great American Smokeout on Thursday. The fair, held in the hospital’s atrium, included displays about various smoking cessation techniques, programs and nicotine replacement products. “I hope people got some information to make the difficult seem a little easier, especially if they’ve tried to quite smoking before and have gotten discouraged,” said Aynsley Anderson, LMH’s community education coordinator. ________ Kansas University: Student housing costs may increase $300 Student housing costs at Kansas University would increase 6.8 percent, nearly $300, on July 1, under a plan tentatively approved Thursday by the Kansas Board of Regents. If approved on a final vote during the regents’ meeting next month, the rate increases will affect more than 5,000 KU students, who live in university-owned or operated housing. KU administrators said the increase was needed to offset inflation and the cost of improvements to the facilities. Under the proposal, the yearly rate for a typical double occupancy room at the residence halls will increase $294 from $4,348 to $4,642. Increases were also proposed for other regents’ universities. ________ Births: Identical twins born on different days Identical twin girls born to Dan and Kim Dearmore will have a lot of explaining to do when they get older. Such as how they could have been born on two separate days. Nevertheless, that’s what happened earlier this week when Kim Dearmore gave birth at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Ava MacKenzie was the first to arrive at 11:34 p.m. Wednesday, her parents said. Her sister, Brooke Alexis put in an appearance about 35 minutes later at 12:12 a.m. Thursday, they said. “It’s unusual and something they will always have to explain,” Dan Dearmore said. “We’re excited. Having twins is just an added bonus. We’ve already started getting two of everything.” Both girls weigh four pounds, which is about average for twins, Kim Dearmore said. ________ Anniversary: Biodiversity facility to mark 50th birthday A ceremony yesterday celebrated the 50th birthday of a Kansas University biodiversity research facility. The Field Station and Ecological Reserves, an 1,800-acre facility in northwest Douglas County, is managed by the Kansas Biological Survey for research, education and outreach programs. Chancellor Robert Hemenway and retired Exxon geologist H.H. “Hub” Hall of Lecompton, who donated 116 acres to the reserve, spoke at a reception yesterday afternoon. ________ Water safety: Water treatment plant surrenders certification A southeast Kansas laboratory under investigation for falsifying records has surrendered its state certification. Terry Koester, president of Quality Water Analysis Laboratories Inc. of Pittsburg, signed the consent order with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. The labs’ top officials signed statements saying that they falsified records used to determine the safety of wastewater and treated hazardous wastes dumped back into Kansas streams by industries and municipalities, including Lawrence, during a five-year period.
