Firefighters, police officers to sell T-shirts in fund-raiser Twenty-one fire and law enforcement agencies in Douglas County have joined to raise money for victims of terrorism on the East Coast. The groups are printing T-shirts to be sold in Lawrence and surrounding communities. The shirts will cost $10, with $6 from each purchase going to help the families of police officers and firefighters killed or injured in Washington, D.C., and New York. The shirts, which feature a flag with the words “Remember our Fallen Brothers and Sisters,” are being printed at a discount by Spirit Industries. Owner Tom Wilkerson’s son, Chad, is a volunteer firefighter in Eudora. Douglas County Sheriff’s Det. Doug Woods said he hoped to have the shirts printed by the end of the week and have them available for sale to the public this weekend. He wants to set up a booth for shirt sales in a parking lot, but no plans have been set, he said. Donations also can be made to the “New York Public Service Relief Fund” at any Douglas County Bank. __________________________ University: Islamic theologian to speak Thursday at KU An expert on Islamic religion and law will speak Thursday at Kansas University. Abdullahi An-Na’im, a professor of law at Emory University in Atlanta, was scheduled to speak a week earlier but was unable to fly to Lawrence when U.S. airports were closed.
