World Online offers panoramic views World Online has launched a new weekly online feature on www.ljworld.com panoramic Quicktime views of various area locations of interest. This week’s panorama features a 360-degree view from the observation tower at Wells Overlook Park, south of Lawrence. In coming weeks, World Online will feature other interesting points of “view.” Sometimes the viewer will be placed at a point of interest that might be worth a visit. Other times, the viewer will get a glimpse from a perspective few ever experience. To see these panoramas, please visit www.ljworld.com/section/360. __________________________ Halloween: Passengers promised thrills on Baldwin’s haunted trains Baldwin Ghosts and goblins will be aboard the Midland Railway’s Haunted Trains again this Halloween season. The Baldwin City C.L.E.A.R. Foundation is planning new thrills and chills for passengers who climb aboard the “Terror Train 2001,” said Kathy Davis, the event’s coordinator. Among the returning attractions will be a haunted caboose at the station that will be stirring up “witch’s brew” and telling fortunes for ticketholders. The trains will run between Baldwin’s Santa Fe Depot, 1515 W. High St., and the abandoned town site of Norwood. Departures will be at 6:30 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20, 26 and 27. Special haunted trains will run for groups on Oct. 21 and 28 by advanced reservation. Tickets will go on sale at the depot ticket window at 5:30 p.m. each night. Seating is limited. For more information, call (785) 594-3234 or check out the Midland and Baldwin Theater Web sites at www.midland-rwy.org and www.baldwin-city.com/theater. __________________________ Community: Plumbers, contractors unite to help elderly with utilities More than 30 members of the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local Union No. 763 volunteered their time Saturday to check and repair furnaces and air conditioners through HEAT’S ON, or Handicapped and Elderly Assistance To Service Our Neighbors. The project, which began in 1989, aims to to help the less fortunate and the elderly. __________________________ Gasoline: Pump Patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.139 at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets.

A 34-year-old man called the police department about 8:30 p.m. and asked for an officer to respond to the hospital and to “bring his gun,” said Sgt. Mike Pattrick, police spokesman. Two officers went to the hospital. The suspect lunged at one of the officers after they entered the emergency room lobby, Pattrick said. After he was arrested, the caller was given a mental evaluation at Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center and was then taken to the Douglas County Jail and booked on suspicion of aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer.
