 Health: KU professor recovering from bacterial meningitis The Kansas University professor diagnosed with meningitis last week has been released from the hospital. Steven White, associate professor of education, was released Saturday from Baptist Medical Center in Kansas City, Mo. He was diagnosed Feb. 4 with bacterial meningitis, a potentially deadly infection of the lining surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Medical officials said because he was diagnosed early in his illness, he should expect a full recovery. Most of the 25 students White met with during his infection took preventative antibiotics. Because of KU snow days, the number of students exposed was reduced. No other cases of the illness have been reported. _____________________________________  Accident: Driver dies in collision after running stop sign An 84-year-old Everest man died Tuesday morning after a two-vehicle accident in northern Jefferson County. About 10:20 a.m. Tuesday, Bruce H. Chilson was southbound in a 1992 Toyota pickup on Effingham Road several miles northeast of Valley Falls, the Kansas Highway Patrol said.

Chilson died later at an Atchison hospital, the patrol said. Livington was not injured. _____________________________________  Brain Teaser: Hughes quiz, Day 14 This is one in a series of questions to test your knowledge on Langston Hughes, as part of the celebration of his 100th birthday. A new question will appear each day through Feb. 14. Each day’s answer will be posted at langstonhughes.ljworld.com. 14) What was the title of Langston Hughes’ first book?
