KU students fast, reflect on Sept. 11 terrorism About 20 Kansas University students began 36 hours of fasting Tuesday at the Kansas Union. Organizers said the event, sponsored by the KU Green Party, was designed to help participants understand the events surrounding the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the U.S.-led retaliation. Above, KU senior Joe Jarvis, Lenexa, makes a sign to support Afghan refugeees, while junior Dalyn Cook, Colorado Springs, Colo., and junior Mary Lawhon, Topeka, discuss the U.S. retaliation campaign. Today’s schedule: From 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., David Gottlieb, professor of law, will speak on the “obligation of peacemakers to honor victims and to speak about the truth of violence”; from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Maia Kipp, lecturer in Slavic languages and literature, on “Islamic Folk Wisdom and Soviet Russia”; and from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., showing of the Iranian film “The Color of Paradise.” __________________________ Government: Douglas, Johnson county commissions to meet Douglas and Johnson county commissioners will conduct a joint meeting Thursday to discuss road issues, economic development interests and other matters of mutual interest. Commissioners said the meeting should be a chance to get to know each other. “I don’t think we are going to take any action on anything,” Douglas County Commissioner Bob Johnson said. “I think it will be more like neighbors visiting.” One issue that Douglas County commissioners said they want to learn more about is Johnson County’s recent reorganization and changes that made several previously elected positions into appointed ones, such as the county clerk, register of deeds and treasurer. The meeting begins with a dinner at 4 p.m. at the Shadow Glen Golf Club, Olathe. The regular meeting is expected to begin at 5:30 p.m. __________________________ Leisure: Lawrence library closed for staff inservice Thursday The Lawrence Public Library will be closed from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday for a staff inservice day. The library will reopen for its usual hours Friday morning at 9 am. Books, videos, and other materials may be returned to the book drops. __________________________ Health: KU Med offers event providing free flu shots Free flu shots will be available during the ninth Drive-Thru Flu Shot event from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Kansas University Medical Center, Kansas City, Kan.. No appointment is necessary. Although the flu shots are free, the Med Center will accept donations at the event of nonperishable food items for Harvesters. An annual flu shot is recommended for those at high risk of contracting influenza, including people age 50 and older and those with serious health conditions. Individuals 18 and older are eligible for the free vaccinations. People should not receive the flu shots if they are allergic to eggs (used to make the vaccine), have been paralyzed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, or have cold or flu symptoms.
