Water quality: City wastewater meets environmental standards A city of Lawrence wastewater discharge test that was conducted by Quality Water Analysis Laboratory Inc. is OK, officials said Wednesday. The results of the test had been in question because officials at the lab have admitted to falsifying records. The lab has been shut down and a federal investigation continues, authorities have said. The city of Lawrence had used the lab to test its treated wastewater. When reports about the lab’s problems surfaced, city officials considered having the effluent retested. But state environmental officials have told Lawrence officials that the effluent test was found to be in order, according to Shari Stamer, water quality manager for the city’s Department of Utilities. _______________________________ Academics: KU selects nominees for prestigious scholarships Kansas University has selected its nominees for the prestigious Rhodes, Marshall and Gates scholarships. Winners of the Rhodes Scholarships, which funds study at Oxford University, and the Marshall Scholarships, which funds study at any British university, will be announced in early December. Winners of the Gates Scholarships, which fund study at Cambridge University, will be announced in October 2002. KU’s nominees are Mark David Bradshaw, a Walnut senior majoring in American studies, who is competing for all three scholarships; Robert Chamberlain, a Topeka senior majoring in political science, who is competing for a Rhodes Scholarship; Shawna N. Smith, a Hays senior in political science and communication studies, who is competing for Rhodes and Marshall scholarships; Jesse Sean Summers, a Pittsburg graduate student in political science, who is competing for a Marshall Scholarship; and Brandon M. Wier, an Olathe graduate student in business administration, who is competing for a Rhodes Scholarship. _______________________________ Death investigation: Autopsy results show body was suicide victim A man’s body found in a wooded area near Tonganoxie was that of a suicide victim, the Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday. A sheriff’s officer found the body about 6:30 p.m. Monday. A sheriff’s spokesman would only say that the location was several miles northwest of Tonganoxie. The man, 19, who was from the Tonganoxie area, shot himself with a rifle, according to reports of an autopsy conducted Tuesday. A sheriff’s spokesman released the information. _______________________________ Artwork: Teens produce artwork for holiday show, sale Van Go Mobile Arts is preparing for its annual holiday show and sale, Adornment Chez Van Go. The show and sale will be from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at Van Go Headquarters, 715 N.J. Named after the holiday sale of former gallery Artists En Masse, “Adornment” offers a variety of artwork produced by the 18 apprentice-artists in its fall JAMS 2001 program, a job-training program for high school youths. In an eight-week session, students ages 14 to 18 were employed to produce two-dimensional and three-dimensional artwork to be sold at the sale. The proceeds will be used to support Van Go’s on-going effort on behalf of at-risk Lawrence youths. The JAMS gallery will be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays until Dec. 23.
