Accident: Deputy in critical condition after horse threw him off Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Ron Wilson was injured Sunday afternoon when he was thrown from a horse on his farm in the Vinland area, Sheriff Rick Trapp said. Wilson, 43, was in critical condition Monday in Kansas University Medical Center’s intensive care unit, a hospital spokesman said. A friend who was with Wilson called for help and sheriff’s officers and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical responded shortly before 4 p.m., Trapp said. No other information about the incident was available. Wilson was a candidate for sheriff in the 2000 elections but lost to Trapp. _________ Kansas responds: Firefighters’ T-shirt sales raise more than $30,000 Area firefighters selling “Remember Our Fallen Brothers and Sisters” T-shirts have raised more than $30,000 for the families of police officers and firefighters killed during the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York. “I’m taking orders bulk orders, that is until Thursday evening,” said Doug Woods, a detective with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department and one of the fund-raiser’s organizers. “After that, we’re going to cut off sales. We need to wrap things up so we can get the check in the mail.” Woods said neither he nor his partner, Doug Green, a lieutenant with the Lawrence Fire Department, is able to fill individual orders. Woods may be reached via e-mail at detwoods@hotmail.com. All of the money raised will be divided equally among the unions representing the New York City and Port Authority police officers and the New York firefighters. _________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.219 at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets.
