Public asked to send notices to new building Because of its move to the News Center at 645 N.H., the Journal-World newsroom is asking that news releases, obituaries and other notices be brought to that office rather than the office at 609 N.H. The public entrance to the building is off Seventh Street. The phone number is 832-6397. The fax number is 843-4512. Advertising and delivery questions still should be directed to the office at 609 N.H. The main Journal-World phone number remains 843-1000. __________ Community: KU sponsors volunteer fair The Kansas University Career and Employment Services and the Center for Community Outreach are sponsoring a volunteer fair on Oct. 4. The fair will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the fourth floor lobby of the Kansas Union. KU students who would like to learn more about helping others can visit national and local volunteer organizations. Some of the organizations include Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Douglas County, Women’s Transitional Care Services, Jesuit Volunteer Corps-Midwest, New Orleans Volunteer Service Community, Maryknoll Mission Assn., Peace Corps and Passonist Lay Missioners. For more information, visit the Web site at www.ku.edu/~uces/events/volunteerfair.shtml. __________ Kansas Responds: Security measures close lakes near nuclear plant Burlington Security concerns that have swept the country since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks have even touched fishing and hunting spots in Kansas. Coffey County Lake is closed until further notice because it is located next to the Wolf Creek Nuclear Power Plant, which some consider a potential terrorist target. Officials emphasize that the outdoors areas are safe and unlikely to ever be hit by terrorists. Coffey County Sheriff Randy Rogers, who oversees the lake’s recreation program, is confident the nuclear reactor was constructed to guard against terrorist strikes. He said the bigger threat is someone trying to disrupt power service. He said no date has been set for reopening the grounds. __________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.259 at Miller Mart at East 19th Street and Haskell Avenue. If you find a lower price, please call us at 832-7154. Be prepared to leave the name and address of the business and the price. Or go to www.ljworld.com/section/gasoline to join our Pump Patrol board.
