Hall Center for Humanities celebrates 25th anniversary More than 100 people associated with Kansas University’s Hall Center for the Humanities during the last 25 years gathered Friday afternoon to celebrate the center’s silver anniversary. The event at the Adams Alumni Center included six of the Hall Center’s seven former directors and dozens of humanities faculty members. The reception also unveiled a newly published booklet on the Hall Center’s history, with essays written by the former directors. Andrew Debicki, a Spanish professor who served as co-director from 1977 to 1983, said only the size of the program had changed since the days he and co-director Richard De George shared a desk and office. “We already had a goal,” he said, “and that goal has stayed around through time. That goal was faculty development.” The Hall Center, one of the oldest in the country, provides enrichment opportunities for humanities faculty and outreach programs in the community. _________ Courts: Bush chooses KU graduate for federal appellate bench U.S. bankruptcy Judge Julie A. Robinson is officially President Bush’s choice to be the next federal judge in Kansas, a GOP source said Friday. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the White House would announce Robinson’s nomination as soon as Friday. Bush already has appointed several women to serve on federal appellate courts, but Robinson could become his first black female nominee. Robinson, 44, has been a federal bankruptcy judge in Topeka since 1994 and is a former assistant U.S. attorney in Kansas City, Kan. She has a 1981 law degree from Kansas University. The president chooses nominees but tends to follow the wishes of his party’s senior senator. That means Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., named Robinson and two others for the post. An aide to Sen. Pat Roberts said in June the White House had settled on Robinson. _________ Accident: 7-year-old Logan boy dies after camper catches fire A 7-year-old boy who was playing with cigarettes and a lighter died Thursday night when the camper he and a cousin were in caught fire, authorities said. The Phillips County Sheriff’s Department has identified the victim as Thomas James Barnes of Logan. The 6-year-old cousin suffered a minor hand burn and was treated and released at a Phillips County hospital. Authorities found the camper destroyed by fire Thursday night. The Kansas Fire Marshall later determined the fire started when the boys dropped a lit cigarette between a couch cushion, which caught on fire and blocked the exit to the camper. The younger boy escaped, but Thomas ran toward the front of the camper, crawled into a sleeper section and was trapped, the sheriff’s department said. An autopsy was scheduled Friday in Hays. _________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.619 at several Lawrence locations. 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.
