Postal workers cautious of anthax threat in mail Mail carriers have the option of wearing gloves while handling mail because of recent anthrax scares nationwide, fueled in part by the confirmation that a New Jersey postal worker had contracted the disease. Lawrence mail carrier Verdia Gray, pictured above, sorted mail Thursday without gloves when the post office ran out of stock. Lawrence Postmaster Bill Reynolds says wearing gloves voluntary. __________________________ Accident: KU student hospitalized after falling four floors A Kansas University student was injured early Friday when he fell off a fourth-floor window ledge at McCollum Hall, the Kansas University Public Safety Office said. Saad Saifeddine, 19, was in good condition Friday at Kansas University Medical Center, Kansas City, Kan., a hospital spokesman said. About 2:45 a.m. Friday Saifeddine went out onto the ledge of a dorm room window to smoke a cigarette and then slipped, KU Police Lt. Schuyler Bailey said. Saifeddine landed on a first floor roof. Saifeddine was visiting a friend who lived in the residence hall room, KU officials said. Smoking is not allowed on McCollum’s fourth floor. __________________________ School: Superintendent finds house redecorated as prank Lawrence School Supt. Randy Weseman got an early taste of Halloween when he returned home Friday from a business trip. Pulling into the driveway, he found his house on Normandy Park decorated with rolls of toilet paper, string, and forks. There’s no proof, but the superintendent suspects the culprits were teachers at South Junior High School. He’s a former South principal. “We’ll see how they feel when they don’t get their paycheck,” he joked. __________________________ Gasoline: Pump Patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.119 at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets.
