Festival of Trees to begin More than 50 decorated holiday trees will be on display at Liberty Hall, 642 Mass. from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday when the Festival of Trees begins. The trees will be on display through Thursday and will be auctioned at 8 p.m. Tuesday. Money generated from the sales and from donations collected during viewing sessions benefits The Shelter. The auction has been a major fund-raising enterprise for The Shelter the past 15 years. The Christmas trees are available for viewing on auction day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The trees also may be viewed Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. A $2 donation is requested for adult admission to view the trees. The trees are decorated by local businesses, civic groups and individuals. ______________________________ Lawrence schools: Board member has ideas about tires for district vans The rubber should meet the road on new Lawrence school district vehicles only if Firestone isn’t involved, says board member Jack Davidson. Davidson said he was in favor of the district buying new eight-passenger vans for Lawrence High School and Free State High School if the vehicles didn’t ride on Firestone tires. “I’d hate that we’d have a problem,” Davidson said. The district plans to buy the two vans for $36,766 from Laird Noller Automotive in Lawrence. Ford Motor Co., the world’s second largest automaker, and Bridgestone Corp., which owns Firestone, face hundreds of lawsuits over accidents involving vehicles that rolled over after Firestone tires lost their tread in highway blowouts. Federal regulators have linked 271 deaths and more than 800 injuries to the tires. ______________________________ Americana: Patriotism theme to pervade annual Christmas parade The annual Eldridge Hotel Old Fashioned Christmas parade also will feature some old-fashioned patriotism. The parade of decorated horse-drawn carriages down Massachusetts Street will carry a patriotic theme because of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, said Raegann Urish, who works at the front desk of the historic hotel. Urish said there are more than 115 entrants ready to ride in the parade, which will start at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. ______________________________ Legal issues: Committee on child support seeks input from public The Kansas Supreme Court’s Child Support Guidelines Advisory Committee is seeking opinions from people who either pay or receive child support. The survey, which can be found online at www.kscourts.org, is confidential and seeks input about the appropriateness of the amount of child support ordered and if the court considered adjustments allowed by the current Kansas Child Support Guidelines. The survey will be open to the public until Friday. Responses to the survey will be used by the Kansas Supreme Court to make changes in the child support guidelines.Festival of Trees to begin More than 50 decorated holiday trees will be on display at Liberty Hall, 642 Mass. from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday when the Festival of Trees begins.
