Arts editor receives award from epilepsy foundation Jan Biles, arts-features editor at the Journal-World, has received the 2001 Distinguished Journalism Merit Award from the Epilepsy Foundation of America for her “Holding on to Hope” series. “Holding on to Hope” told the story of Meredith Leary, a Lawrence woman with epilepsy; her parents, Norma and Norman Leary; and the research being done by Dr. Ivan Osorio and his colleagues at Kansas University Medical Center to find a way to block epilepsy seizures. The series ran in January 2001. _________________________________ Philanthropy: Red Cross asks residents to ‘Unite for Life,’ give blood More than 3,300 people in the central Plains region donated blood after the Sept. 11 attacks. Now, to honor those who lost their lives and to prepare for future blood needs, the American Red Cross is sponsoring “Unite for Life.” Because blood is perishable and cannot be stored indefinitely, the need for it is continuous. The central Plains region must collect 450 pints of blood each weekday. All eligible donors are asked to “Unite for Life” from 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday at First Christian Church, 1000 Ky. Appointments are preferred and can be made by calling (888) 719-8929. _________________________________ Culture: Art exhibit to feature works by Lawrence painter New paintings by Lawrence artist John Geery will be on display beginning today at the Bourgeois Pig, 6 E. Ninth St. The opening for the exhibit, which will consist of 10 or more acrylic-on-canvas paintings, starts at 5 p.m. The 31-year-old artist received his formal artistic training at Kansas University’s School of Fine Arts and has exhibited his work at local and national venues. _________________________________ Courts: Trial set in defamation case Kansas City, Kan. A trial will take place next month for the publisher and editor of a Wyandotte County publication accused in a criminal defamation case, a judge ruled Friday. Publisher David Carson and editor Edward H. Powers Jr. will go to trial Feb 28. They and Observer Publications Inc. face 10 counts each of misdemeanor libel. The charges focus on the publication’s claim that Unified Government Mayor Carol Marinovich and her husband, Wyandotte County District Judge Ernest Johnson, do not live in the county. They live in the Rosedale community in southern Kansas City, Kan., which is in the county.
