Pull-out U.S. flag available In the days since Tuesday’s terrorist attacks, the United States has transformed from mourning black to patriotic red, white and blue. But the demand for American flags since the attacks has overwhelmed supply. Most Lawrence-area stores were sold out by midweek. Many retailers are hoping for shipments of flags later this week. But in today’s Journal-World, you can again find a full-color flag, suitable for display in store fronts, at schools and hospitals, in business offices and homes. We invite you to turn to page 4B to find your pull-out flag and to join in a proud display of the nation’s colors. __________ America responds: Fine arts students seeking supplies for attack memorial A group of Kansas University visual art students are asking for donations of acrylic paints and canvas so they can provide a place for others to express their feelings regarding the recent attacks on the United States. On Friday, the students hope to hang a 15-by-60-foot canvas at the Art and Design Building and then invite others to paint on the canvas, according to Lisa Thalhammer, a junior majoring in fine arts. Paint and canvas can be dropped off at the A&D Building today through Friday. For more information, call Thalhammer at 749-5868. __________ Kansas City, Mo.: Three dead, three injured in possibly related shootings Three people were killed early Sunday in what police said were apparently two related shootings. Officers found two of the victims a male and female while responding to a disturbance at an east Kansas City, Mo., convenience store about 1:50 a.m., said Office Steve Young, a police department spokesman. Two men were treated at a hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries. Seven minutes later, police were called to another shooting near Interstate 435, where they found a man shot dead and another man with nonlife-threatening injuries. Police believe the shooting was related to the disturbance at the convenience store, Young said. Names of the victims and other details had not been released by Sunday evening. __________ 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. 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.
