Rain threat delays work on South Park wading pool The threat of rain Wednesday delayed the repainting of the South Park wading pool, setting back its re-opening to July 11. The city is repainting the pool near 11th and Massachusetts streets because the existing paint is flaking. The pool paint must be applied on a dry day without rain forecast in the next 24 hours, allowing the paint to set. Five more days are required after that to allow the paint to cure. _______________ Investigation: Police find missing boys, 21-year-old who were lost Law enforcement officers Tuesday night searched a wooded area along Clinton Lake for a man and two boys who had been reported missing. All three were found unhurt near County Road 6 and East 550 Road, Sheriff’s Lt. Kathy Tate said. The man, 21, and the boys, ages 12 and 11, apparently left the back yard of a residence in Clinton to follow a trail that led toward the lake, Tate said. No names were released, but the 21-year-old and one of the younger boys are brothers, Tate said. Their mother called sheriff’s officers about 11 p.m. after she searched for two hours without results. About a half-dozen officers, including a Clinton Lake State Park ranger, searched for the boys before finding them after a little more than an hour. _______________ Higher education: KU ranked a top bargain in national Kaplan survey Despite a recently approved tuition increase at Kansas University, the institution has been recognized for offering “the best value for your tuition dollar” by a new college guide. “The Unofficial, Unbiased Insider’s Guide to the 320 Most Interesting Colleges,” which is based on results from Kaplan’s Annual National High School Guidance Counselors Survey, said KU offered “tremendous athletics and a great assortment of majors at a very attractive price. ” Using recently approved tuition rates for 2002-2003, KU in-state annual tuition and fees are $1,798. The guide highlights KU’s programs in architecture, pre-med studies, nursing, pharmacy, engineering, journalism, Spanish and Portuguese. _______________ Amtrak: Locomotive failure causes late arrival in Lawrence Amtrak’s Southwest Chief didn’t make its usual morning appearance Wednesday in Lawrence, but not because of the railroad’s financial problems. Kathleen Cantillon, an Amtrak spokeswoman in Chicago, said two of the train’s four locomotives had failed Tuesday, one in Arizona and the other in New Mexico. All four locomotives are needed to pull the train, which has as many as 34 passenger cars. The second failure required Amtrak to wait for a Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad locomotive for assistance. Those failures, in combination with the need to replace an overtime engine crew in Albuquerque, N.M., put the Los Angeles-to-Chicago train 14 hours behind schedule. She didn’t say how many Lawrence passengers were stranded by the delay, but City Commissioner Marty Kennedy said he had seen roughly 15 people waiting in the station at 413 E. Seventh St. _______________ Gasoline Prices: Pump Patrol seeks best deal The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.31 at several gas stations. If you find a lower price, call us at 832-7154. Be prepared to leave the name and address of the business and the price.
