AG candidate seeks help from KU College Republicans Kansas Sen. David Adkins, R-Leawood, invited Kansas University students Tuesday night to help with his campaign for Kansas attorney general. Adkins spoke to more than 40 students at the KU College Republicans meeting at the Kansas Union. He told members that his goal, if elected attorney general, would be to make Kansas the safest place in the nation. He also said that campaigns were made on the strength of young volunteers and urged interested members to volunteer in his campaign. Adkins, chairman of the Reapportionment Committee and vice chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, briefly outlined the state’s budget troubles and issues involved with congressional district reapportionment. He faces Phill Kline, a former state lawmaker, for the GOP nomination for attorney general. ____________________________________ Safety: Grass fires, high winds cause county to reissue burn ban High winds and dry conditions have county officials issuing another burn ban after lifting one just days earlier. Three grass fires on Tuesday prompted County Commission Chairman Jere McElhaney to issue a ban prohibiting outdoor burning through Jan. 29. McElhaney said emergency management officials advised him the Range Land Fire Index has reached levels warranting a ban and that high wind levels made the area particularly susceptible to fires burning out of control. Commissioners had lifted a previous burn ban on Saturday after the area received its first significant snowfall of the season. The ban prohibits all open fires, except in permanent stoves or barbecue grills; the burning of any agricultural ground; and careless use and disposal of smoking materials. People violating the ban could be charged with a misdemeanor offense. ____________________________________ Crime: Counterfeit money making way through city Several counterfeit bills have been passed to Lawrence businesses in recent days, police said. Emerson Biggins Sports Bar and Grill, 3512 Clinton Parkway, called police Sunday afternoon after an employee found a suspicious $100 bill, a police report said. The bill was “off color” and counterfeit, police said. An 88-year-old man tried to make a purchase with a $20 bill Saturday afternoon at Smoker Friendly, 1606 W. 23rd St., a report said. The bill turned out to be counterfeit. The man told officers he had received the bill as change from another business. Counterfeit $20 bills were found in two deposit bags received during the weekend at Firstar Bank, 1807 W. 23rd St. The bills came from Lawrence restaurants, but the restaurants were not identified by police. Wal-Mart, 3300 Iowa, called police Sunday after an employee discovered a counterfeit $10 bill. ____________________________________ Kansas University: Former solicitor general to speak about Ruby Ridge Seth Waxman, a U.S. solicitor general during the Clinton administration, will speak Monday at Kansas University. Waxman, who from 1997 to 2001 oversaw government litigation before the U.S. Supreme Court, will speak on “Federalism, Law Enforcement and the Supremacy Clause the Strange Case of Ruby Ridge” at 3:30 p.m. in 107 Green Hall. The event is open to the public. The Ruby Ridge case involved the FBI’s 1992 attempt to arrest white supremacist Randy Weaver on weapons charges at his home near Ruby Ridge, Idaho. An agent, Weaver’s wife and their 14-year-old son were killed in the incident. Weaver was arrested and was later acquitted of all charges except those related to bail jumping. The government later paid him and his family $3.1 million to settle a lawsuit. Waxman’s speech is part of the Stephenson Lectures in Law and Government series at KU.
