First in fleet of 12 city buses arrives for use in Lawrence The first permanent bus for the city’s transit system has arrived and should be in service by the end of the month. The new bus is the first in what will be a fleet of 12, Public Transit Administrator Karin Rexroad said Tuesday. All should be delivered by the manufacturer, El Dorado National of Chino, Calif., by the end of November. The new 25-seat buses cost $205,975 apiece. The city has been paying $18,960 a month to lease the 12 smaller buses currently in service. Rexroad said transit drivers must be trained on the new bus before it goes into service. __________________________ Humanities: KU’s Hall Center to mark 25th anniversary with party More than 150 people are expected to attend a 25th birthday party Friday for the Hall Center for the Humanities. The invitation-only event at the Adams Alumni Center will include speeches from Kansas University Chancellor Robert Hemenway, former directors and faculty members. The center provides enrichment opportunities for humanities faculty and outreach programs for the community. The center, one of the oldest in the country, originally was called the Center for Humanistic Studies but was renamed in 1983 after a gift from the Hall Family Foundation in Kansas City, Mo. The foundation announced this summer it would give the center another $3 million for facilities and $1 million toward programs. A committee is deciding whether to refurbish the existing building or construct a new one. “We started as a smaller unit 25 years ago, and we had many of the same goals, just on a smaller scale,” Executive Director Janet Crow said. __________________________ Leisure: Arts and crafts festival scheduled Sunday in park The 22nd Annual Fall Arts and Crafts Festival will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday in South Park, 1131 Mass. Admission is free. The festival presents handmade crafts and original artwork by artists and craftsmen. It also includes children’s activities, a moon walk, train rides and paint and play pen, as well as music from live bands. Food and concessions will be available. For more information contact Duane Peterson, special events supervisor for the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, at 832-7940; or Lisa Patterson, recreation marketing supervisor, at 832-7912. __________________________ Kansas University: 18th Kemper Fellowship of semester awarded Another Kansas University professor has been awarded a Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence. Jane W. Gibson, professor of anthropology, received her $5,000 award Tuesday. She was the 18th of 20 KU professors to receive Kemper Awards this year. Two more professors at the KU Medical Center will be honored. The awards are funded through the William T. Kemper Foundation and the KU Endowment Association. They are selected by a seven-member selection committee of students, faculty and alumni. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.619 per gallon at Citgo, 2005 W.
