Community: Drop-In Center may expand facility’s hours for residents The Community Drop-In Center is looking at staying open longer during the day. The center, 214 W. 10th St., serves homeless and low-income Lawrence residents by offering a place to rest, eat and do job searches from 8 a.m. to noon weekdays. Center officials are now applying for a city permit to extend the hours in the future. The process will include hiring more staff and raising the funds necessary to pay rent for additional hours of use. The Lawrence City Commission is expected to approve the request Tuesday night. The meeting is 6:45 p.m. in City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets. __________________________ State government: Graves names chief of staff secretary of administration Topeka Joyce Glasscock, chief of staff to Gov. Bill Graves and wife of Kansas House Speaker Kent Glasscock, will be the next secretary of administration. Graves announced the appointment Friday. Secretary Dan Stanley is leaving the post to take a job at the Pentagon as a deputy assistant secretary of the Army. Joyce Glasscock has served as Graves’ chief of staff since he took office in January 1995, following three months as the manager of his 1994 campaign for governor. __________________________ Crime: ABC issues citations to underage drinkers Nearly 70 citations were issued in Lawrence last weekend for violations of alcohol beverage laws, the Kansas Department of Revenue said. On Aug. 25 and Aug. 26, Alcoholic Beverage Control agents issued 67 citations mainly for minors in possession of alcohol at parties or on the streets, officials said. Agents also worked in Manhattan on Aug. 18 and Aug. 19, issuing 66 citations, officials said. “ABC has stepped up its efforts toward underage drinking,” ABC Director Robert Longino said. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.639 per gallon at Citgo, 2005 W. Ninth St, Miller Mart at East 19th Street and Haskell Avenue, and Site at East 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue. If you find a lower price, please call us at 832-7154. Be prepared to leave the name and address of the business and the price. Or go to www.ljworld.com/section/gasoline to join our Pump Patrol message board. __________________________ Baldwin residents endure electricity interruption About 900 Baldwin utility customers had their electricity interrupted Friday. It was the second outage in less than a week. City Administrator Larry Paine said an overcurrent from the city’s KCPL supply lines tripped a voltage regulating device at the city’s substation cutting power between 5:05 p.m. and about 6:15 p.m. A brief outage last Sunday cut service to about 1,000 residences, virtually the entire town. “At the moment we have an idea what the problem is and have it fixed,” Paine said. “But the next time we have an overcurrent situation, it may trip again. We’re going to have to bring our technicians back in next week and recheck each of the elements of that substation because it’s supposed to be working without those sorts of problems.”
