Day of mourning also marks statewide show of patriotism Saturday served both as a day of mourning and, in some ways, a day of fierce patriotism in response to Tuesday’s terrorist attacks. Massachusetts Street was lined with flags, balloons and passersby in red, white and blue. Services at the Lied Center and First United Methodist Church, among others, were packed to capacity. Such demonstrations could be seen throughout the state. Above, Madison Summers, 3, shows her spirit while watching the Patriot Parade with her family Saturday in Prairie Village. The parade was to help show solidarity with the victims of Tuesday’s terrorist attacks on the East Coast. The parade was followed by a Peace Pole rally. __________________________ Crime: Topekan convicted in deaths of Nebraska couple on I-70 A Topeka man was convicted of felony involuntary manslaughter in a traffic accident that killed a Nebraska couple. Jarrel Lantz Hafner, 25, also was convicted by a Shawnee County District Court jury of driving on a revoked driver’s license, a misdemeanor. Jurors deliberated for more than eight hours on Thursday and Friday before convicting Hafner in the Sept. 1, 2000, deaths of Daniel Livingston, 40, and his wife, Morelia, 42, both of Omaha, Neb. Hafner’s sentencing was set for Oct. 26. Hafner had a history of diabetes-related traffic accidents before the collision on Interstate 70. He also was driving on a revoked license. Hafner remains free on bond, but he was ordered to appear in Shawnee County District Court on Monday for a hearing to decide whether bond will be revoked. __________________________ Courts: KC pharmacist granted continuance for pending trial A federal judge has granted a continuance in the criminal trial of the Kansas City pharmacist accused of diluting chemotherapy drugs. U.S. District Judge Ortrie D. Smith on Friday ordered Robert Courtney’s trial delayed until Feb. 4. Courtney’s lawyers asked for the delay, saying they needed more time to prepare. Prosecutors had objected and wanted an Oct. 1 trial date. Courtney has pleaded innocent to 20 felony counts alleging that he tampered, misbranded and adulterated chemotherapy drugs. He is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to discuss scheduling and depositions in the case. At least 52 civil lawsuits have been filed against Courtney in Jackson County Circuit Court. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.589 at Site, East 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue.
