Kansas University: Band performs in Goodland Before they made it to Boulder to support the Jayhawks Saturday, Kansas University’s Marching Jayhawks dropped by Goodland High School Friday night to rouse some spirit at the school’s Homecoming game. KU’s marching band performed for about half an hour before Goodland’s game against Atwood and then joined Goodland’s band to play the national anthem at half time, said Harvey Swager, the school’s principal. “The people of our community were really excited about having them here,” he said. “They really felt honored the KU band would stop and play on our field and that they’d get a chance to see them perform.” __________________________ Recreation: Players seek master points in Lawrence bridge tourney A regional bridge tournament this week has drawn more than 300 players to the Lawrence Holidome for serious competition and the chance to win gold master points. People from Canada and 11 states have been playing bridge since Tuesday, said Eldon Herd, tournament chair. The tournament ends today. Shown above are players Sharen Ertz, Hull, Ill., Rita Estes, Tulsa, Okla., Tina Hinds, Columbia, Mo., and Dorthy Brewer, Tulsa, Okla. Players are drawn to regional tournaments because they can earn gold master points. Those who earn enough master points of different colors become “life masters,” a big honor in the bridge-playing community. Herd and his wife, Glenna, started the Lawrence Duplicate Bridge Club 10 years ago and enjoy the challenges the game presents. __________________________ America Responds: Church distributes ribbons to commemorate tragedies About a dozen members of the Heartland Community Church, 619 Vt., distributed red, white and blue ribbons to passersby Saturday in downtown Lawrence. It only took about 30 minutes for the group to get rid of 600 ribbons with small cards attached to them that said, “We hope this small gift brings some light into your day. It’s a simple way of saying that God loves you no strings attached.” Kitsy Gray, wife of the church’s pastor, Paul Gray, said the church often likes to do small things for the community such as give away popsicles and coffee. She said she hoped people would wear the ribbons in response to the Sept. 11 tragedies in New York City and Washington, D.C. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.549 at Jayhawk Food Mart, 701 W.

The Associated Press story offered ample information. Peter had been chairman and president of the Harris Enterprises, the newspaper group. He died Sept. 12, a day after the terrible events in our country. He had been ill for a long time. He was 85.
