Enjoy warm weekend days before cold front moves in Twenty degrees above normal and sunny isn’t bad for January. Just a week after Lawrence was blanketed in 3 inches of snow, temperatures Friday soared to the 60-degree mark and may exceed that through Monday, according to the National Weather Service. Normal highs for late January hover around 40 degrees, said Chad Pettera, meteorologist with WeatherData, a private forecasting service in Wichita. A cold front set to move in early next week will put a damper on the unseasonably mild weather. ________________________________ Law enforcement: Police stop burglary attempt in progress at mobile home Two men were arrested Friday morning after Lawrence Police interrupted a burglary in progress at a mobile home in the 1900 block of West 31st Street. Someone called police at 9:40 a.m. to report two men had entered a neighbor’s mobile home, Sgt. Mike Pattrick said. Information about how entry was made was unclear, and police reports were still being prepared later Friday. Officers arrived and set up around the mobile home, Pattrick said. Officers then entered the front door, and two male suspects ran out the back door, Pattrick said. One of the suspects, a 17-year-old Lawrence man, was caught and arrested by an officer stationed at the back door, Pattrick said. The second suspect, a 19-year-old Lawrence man, attempted to run away but was caught by other officers after a foot pursuit, Pattrick said. No other information was available late Friday and charges were pending. ________________________________ Retail sales: Compromise proposes limits on beer keg retailers’ liability Topeka Proponents of a bill requiring the registration of beer kegs say they have reached a compromise with groups that have opposed the legislation in the past. The key change is language that would limit the retailer’s liability if someone legally purchases a keg then illegally furnishes it to minors. Besides limiting a retailer’s liability, the compromise would only require that purchase records be maintained until a keg is returned.
