Kansas Politics: Overland Park surgeon will challenge Moore Topeka An Overland Park surgeon has filed in the 3rd Congressional District, making him the first Republican to get on the ballot for a chance to challenge incumbent Democrat Dennis Moore. Jeff Colyer filed his paperwork Friday with the secretary of state’s office to guarantee himself a spot on the Aug. 6 primary ballot. The filing deadline is 5 p.m. Tuesday. Moore is the only Democrat among the state’s four congressmen. The winner of the GOP primary faces Moore in November. Another Republican, Adam Taff of Lenexa, an airline pilot, is attempting to file by petition. However, the signatures of registered voters he submitted have not been verified. The 3rd District includes Wyandotte, Johnson and the eastern portion of Douglas County, including much of Lawrence. _____________________________________________ Kansas University: Parking director to retire After a 25-year tenure as head of the Kansas University parking department, Donald L. Kearns will retire this month. Donna Hultine, assistant director of parking services, has been appointed interim director until a permanent replacement is named. Kearns will retire effective July 19. Kearns was named director of parking in 1977, capping a 15-year career with the Kansas Highway Patrol. Before his appointment, he was senior trooper for the Lawrence district. At that time, the parking department was a division of the KU Police Department, now the Public Safety Office. Shortly after his appointment, Kearns oversaw the department’s reorganization as Parking Services, a self-supporting, autonomous unit. During his tenure, Parking Services built the Allen Fieldhouse and Mississippi Street parking garages on campus and modernized the parking system. The KU campus contains more than 12,000 parking spaces. _____________________________________________ Gasoline Prices: Pump Patrol seeks best deal The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.30 per gallon at the Presto station, 1802 W. 23rd St. 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.
