Community: Public invited to open house at converged News Center The World Company is starting a new venture in a newly renovated building and wants the public to share in the milestone. The public is invited to an open house from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. today in the News Center, 645 N.H. The center is home to the news operations of the Journal-World, 6News and World Online. The News Center allows the news gathering operations of 6News, World Online and the Journal-World to be united under one roof. This type of multimedia “convergence” is being tried out in several parts of the country, and the World Company is excited about the opportunities it presents, said Dolph C. Simons Jr., editor and publisher of the Journal-World and president of The World Company board. “We think this combined news operation can produce a superior news product for the Lawrence area,” Simons said. “Our goal is to use a variety of media to give our readers and viewers the best possible news coverage every day.” News Center staff will be on hand at the open house to give tours. The public is asked to enter the building from the Seventh Street entrance. A handicapped-accessible entrance is available at the back of the building on New Hampshire Street. __________________________ Business: Yellow Corp. downsizes, dismisses 151 employees Overland Park Yellow Corp. has dismissed 151 management and staff employees, citing the nation’s slumping economy, a company official said Friday. The trucking giant’s cuts, which include 30 persons at its Overland Park headquarters, come just days after it announced that third quarter profits will be significantly lower than projected. Yellow, the parent company of Yellow Freight System, said a decrease in shipping by manufacturers has hurt profits and led to a cut of 2,900 jobs last April. __________________________ America responds: Peace demonstrators march for second time in Lawrence More than 100 peace demonstrators took to the streets Saturday. Chanting slogans such as “Peace not war,” and carrying signs, flags and banners, the marchers clogged the sidewalk on the east side of Massachussetts Street as they went from Buford M. Watson Jr. Park to South Park. It was the second consecutive Saturday that marchers have taken to Lawrence streets to express their concerns about possible violent U.S. response to Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.279 at Conoco, 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.
