Fatality: Oskaloosa 15-year-old dies An Oskaloosa girl died Wednesday at a Topeka hospital, where she was taken after a one-car accident Tuesday in Jefferson County. Services for Crystal Weeks, 15, will be 2 p.m. Monday at Oskaloosa Middle School, where she was a student. Crystal was the driver of a 1987 Nissan Sentra that overturned about 4 p.m. Tuesday on 70th Street, a gravel road about a mile west of U.S. Highway 59 near Oskaloosa, the Kansas Highway Patrol said. The car was westbound when she lost control of it, the Highway Patrol said. Crystal was taken by air ambulance to Stormont Vail Regional Health Center, where she died. A sister, Cassie Weeks, 13, was taken by Jefferson County Emergency Medical Service to St. Francis Hospital, Topeka. She was treated and released, a hospital spokesman said. Both Crystal and Cassie were ejected from the car, the Highway Patrol said. They were not wearing seat belts, the accident report said. A third sister, Amber Weeks, 11, was not ejected and was not transported to a hospital. She was wearing a seat belt, the report said. The Weekses’ parents are Rick and Debbie Weeks, Oskaloosa. __________ Weapons: Student brings toy gun to elementary school A Schwegler School student Thursday brought what was determined to be a toy gun into the school. Principal Jane Ziegler notified parents of the incident in a letter sent home with students. A boy in the primary grades brought the fake weapon to school. His sister took it from him and placed it in her backpack. That led to rumors of a gun heard by school staff. Both children were sent home from school with their parents. Neither child was identified, and classes continued at the school, 2201 Ousdahl. Ziegler urged parents to remind their children about the ban on weapons of any kind at school. __________ Kansas University: Islam expert’s talk delayed Kansas University has postponed a speech by an expert on Islamic religion and law because he wasn’t able to fly to Lawrence from Atlanta. Abdullahi An-Na’im, a law professor at Emory University in Atlanta, was scheduled to speak Thursday night at the Kansas Union. He was originally scheduled to speak on human rights in Africa but was expected to discuss Islamic connections to Tuesday’s terrorist attacks. The speech was to be part of the African Studies Resource Center’s series on the media and human rights. The center will try to reschedule An-Na’im’s lecture. __________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.599 at Zarco 66, 1500 E. 23rd Street, Miller Mart, 19th Street and Haskell Avenue; and Conoco, 23rd and Harper Streets.
