Scouts rally against pollution with environmental signs Almost 200 plastic signs that say “No dumping, drains to river,” were placed on sewage inlets Saturday by Boy Scouts. Taylor White, 17, Lawrence, organized the project for his Eagle Scout award. White, a member of Troop 59, said people should keep hazardous waste out of the sewers. “I guess they think that it’s just a hole in the ground and it doesn’t affect them in any way,” he said. “But really, that hole leads right back to the river, which is our drinking water.” Above, Scout Josh Bailey, left, watches as Scout Phillip Wrigley applies a sticker stating that no dumping is allowed in city drains. Mollie Mangerich, operations supervisor of waste reduction and recycling for Lawrence, helped White with his project. The city provided the plastic signs, cement adhesive and maps of the sewage inlets. White said he hoped the signs cut pollution. “A lot of people are misinformed,” he said. “Any positive step we can take is good.” __________________________ Visitors: University plans open house with exhibitions, lectures Kansas University will play host to an All-University Open House Oct. 6.

Topekan’s methods unorthodox
Except for bait, Schmidtlein pursues cats as if they were crappie
September 2, 2001
By Ned Kehde Topekan David Schmidtlein doesn’t look or act like a cat fisherman.

Huntsman’ is generous and old-fashioned
September 2, 2001
It’s an auspicious thing to open a novel of the American Midwest with an invocation of the Missouri River, “somnolent and muscular, centuryless, churning on without the permission of man’s belief.” It calls up the raft-running boys of Twain, the heart of the heart of the country, the big, beating American dream.
