Voter registration for primary ends today Today is the deadline to register to vote in the Aug. 6 primary. The Douglas County Clerk’s office will be open until 9 p.m. to register voters. The office is in the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. Voter registration forms are available to download at election.ljworld.com. Also at the site is a downloadable form to apply for an advance voting ballot, a list of primary races, earlier stories, video and other information on the election. There are Republican primaries in statewide races for governor, attorney general, state treasurer and insurance commissioner. There are also Republican primaries for the 3rd congressional district seat and for the Senate seat now held by Pat Roberts. ______________ Corrections: Kansas to receive funds to reintegrate convicts Kansas will receive $2 million to help former prisoners reintegrate into society, Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft said. The money is part of 68 grants being given by the Serious and Violent Offender Re-entry Initiative, a collaboration of several government departments. A total of $100 million will be given to 49 states, the District of Columbia and Virgin Islands. “By educating and treating offenders, we are not only helping them improve their lives, we are reducing the chance they will return to crime and drug abuse,” Ashcroft said. Offenders will receive education, treatment and life skills programs while in institutions and services and supervision as they re-enter the community. ______________ Exchange: Receptions to welcome sister city visitors The public is invited to attend welcome receptions for students from Lawrence’s Japanese sister city scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. About 20 students from Hiratsuka, Japan, their chaperones, host families and past participants in the sister city exchange program are expected at a gathering at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H. A second reception is set for 10:45 a.m. Wednesday at City Hall, 6 E. Sixth St., said Lisa Patterson, city spokeswoman. At that event, students will meet with Mayor Sue Hack. The public is invited to meet the students at both events. Lawrence’s sister city program with Hiratsuka began in 1990. Eutin, Germany, has been a sister city since 1989. ______________ Gasoline Prices: Pump Patrol seeks deal The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.37 at several Lawrence locations.
