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.

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.

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.
