Politics: Democratic fund-raiser to include historic figures Kansas Democrats from the 21st century on Sunday will have an opportunity to meet with and hear from their 19th-century counterparts through living history re-enactors at a fund-raiser. The Lecompton Historical Society is playing host to the event for House Democratic Leader Jim Garner and the House Democrats at the restored historic Democratic Headquarters Building overlooking the Kansas River. The building is at the end of East Second Street in Lecompton. Congressman Dennis Moore, D-Lenexa, Insurance Commissioner Kathleen Sebelius, Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley and Kansas Democratic Party Chair Tom Sawyer have been invited. Lecompton re-enactor J. Howard Duncan will portray Ely Moore Jr., a register of the land office in Lecompton from 1857 to 1860 and a member of the Democratic State Central Committee for 14 years. Other re-enactors will debate slavery, and period music will be performed. The public event is from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. __________ Juvenile justice: Training session scheduled for Youth Court judges Douglas County Youth Court will conduct a training session Saturday for students interested in serving as judges. The training session will be held from 9 a.m. to noon. Students in the ninth through 12th grades can participate. There will be a total of four training sessions, concluding sometime in November. Student volunteers in Youth Court pass sentence on juvenile offenders appearing before them. __________ University relations: Helicopters over Lawrence carrying KU photographers The Kansas University Office of University Relations wants you to know the helicopters flying today and Sunday over campus aren’t being flown by terrorists. They’re carrying university photographers, who will be capturing the campus for promotional materials. Helicopters are scheduled to fly over campus at 3 p.m. today and 4 p.m. Sunday. Both shoots will take about 1 1/2 hours. __________ Crime: Tax indictments handed up against DeSoto resident A federal grand jury Thursday indicted a DeSoto woman for filing false federal income tax returns. Marlene Saathoff, 52, allegedly filed false returns for the years 1995 through 1998, failing to report more than $690,000 in income, the indictments say. The four-count indictments were handed up in U.S. District Court, Kansas City, Kan. If convicted, Saathoff faces a maximum of three years in federal prison without parole on each count. __________ Gasoline: Pump Patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.129 at several Lawrence-area stations.
