Teacher receives haircut for PTO fund-raiser Fourth-grader Sydney Keizer took advantage Tuesday of the rare opportunity to hack away at her teacher’s hair. Keizer faced no punishment for her unusual re-styling of Hillcrest School music teacher John Bowman’s locks, pictured above. The haircut was her reward for helping raise money for the PTO at Hillcrest, 1045 Hilltop Drive. Bowman volunteered his hair for the cause. “I had it going around in my head for a while,” he said. Hillcrest parents and students bought tickets to raise money and enter a raffle to select the guest barber. Keizer won. Statements Hair 2500 W. Sixth St., volunteered to repair Bowman’s hair. __________________________ Underage drinking: Businesses improving record on selling alcohol to minors More businesses are abiding by the law that prevents the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors, the director of Kansas Alcoholic Beverage Control said during a visit Tuesday to Lawrence. Robert Longino, ABC director, met with about 40 people at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds to discuss state alcohol laws. During 600 checks of businesses throughout the state last year, 77 percent were found to be obeying the law that prevents sale of alcohol to minors under 21, Longino said. The checks were made by underage adults working with ABC. A few years ago compliance was as low as 63 percent, Longino said. __________________________ Police: Deputy in serious condition after horse-riding accident A Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy, injured when he was thrown from a horse last weekend, is now in serious condition at Kansas University Medical Center, Kansas City, Kan. Ron Wilson, 43, was moved from the intensive care unit Tuesday, a hospital spokesman said. Wilson was riding with a friend Sunday afternoon on his farm near Vinland when he was thrown from the horse, sheriff’s officials said. Wilson ran for sheriff last year but was defeated by Rick Trapp. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.209 at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets.
