KC rally organizers find ‘positive’ in diluted drug case Kansas City, Mo. Barb Wibbenmeyer says there’s a camaraderie among the people who may have gotten diluted chemotherapy drugs from pharmacist Robert R. Courtney. Wibbenmeyer was among the 50 people who turned out Saturday in Cancer Survivors Park for a rally to support people who may have gotten diluted chemotherapy drugs. Chris Whitley, center, above, of the US Attorney General’s Office, was one of the speakers during the rally. Wibbenmeyer said her doctor told her it’s likely some of her chemotherapy treatments were under-mixed by Courtney, who has admitted to the FBI that he diluted the drugs out of greed. Richard and Annette Bloch said they organized the rally to bring something positive out of that horrible news. Bloch co-founded H&R Block, and he and his wife started the R.A. Bloch Cancer Foundation, which sponsors a rally each June for cancer survivors. __________________________ Accident: Workers in Topeka manhole died from lack of oxygen Topeka The three men who died in a construction site manhole last month ran out of oxygen, according to an official with the Shawnee County District Coroner’s Office. The three men died Aug. 27 in the 23-foot hole while checking a new sewer line for leaks in a new subdivision in southwest Topeka. Autopsies won’t be completed for another couple of weeks, but chief medical investigator Sharon Mandel said the coroner’s office has determined the workers were overcome by the manhole’s oxygen-deficient atmosphere. The victims were Norman Emerson, 64, of Tecumseh; Lawrence Saloga, 53, of Pratt; and Brian Phelps, 22, of Topeka. They all were employed by Emerson Construction of Topeka. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.599 at Miller Mart, 19th Street and Haskell Avenue.

There are so many good girls all around you and … I am just so happy.” Ross and Douglas will compete in the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants next year. __________________________ Memorial service planned for homeless resident A memorial service has been planned for Rachelle Conrad, the homeless woman found dead in Clinton Park Friday morning. Friends have planned the service, which begins at 2 p.m. Monday in South Park. “It’s not a religious service,” co-organizer Mary Rosenthal said. “We just want to remember Rachelle.” Conrad, 37, was found about 7 a.m. Friday near a shelter in the park at Fifth and Alabama streets. Police are awaiting results from tests on blood and tissue samples to determine the cause of death. They haven’t ruled out foul play.
