Complaint doesn’t keep musicians from downtown Jazz music flowed from the corner of Eighth and Massachusetts streets Saturday afternoon. Topeka residents Dan Kozak, on saxophone, and Torrence Cushinberry, on drums, shown above, played for passersby downtown. Starving Artists Movers, a Lawrence moving company, sponsors the musicians and others who play downtown every weekend. “For jazz heritage to be perpetuated, you have to put it out on the streets,” Kozak said. About two weeks ago, the duo was asked to move from a downtown corner by the Lawrence Police Department following a complaint. Tom Van Holt, owner of the moving company, said neither man was acting disorderly or did anything wrong. He videotaped Saturday’s events in case anyone is issued a citation in the future. Van Holt said he’d like to see more musicians downtown on the weekends. __________________________ Crime: Fort Riley resident charged in 2-year-old’s beating death Topeka A Fort Riley man has been charged with murder in the beating death of his 2-year-old stepson, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.

Fort Riley Military Police said they could not provide that information or any other details Friday night. Gilmore remains in custody pending a detention hearing Monday. He faces a maximum penalty of life in a federal prison if convicted. __________________________ Gasoline: Pump Patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.089 per gallon at Citgo, West Ninth and Iowa streets.
