Liquor enforcement agents ready for new keg law State liquor enforcement agents say they are ready to enforce a new state law that takes effect July 1 requiring businesses that sell beer or cereal malt beverages to tag kegs with information about their purchasers. The new law is intended to identify and penalize individuals who provide beer to minors. The law applies to kegs or containers of four or more gallons. Kegs sold to clubs, drinking establishments and caterers are exempt from tagging. Possession of an untagged keg is a misdemeanor punishable by fines and license suspension or revocation. _________________________________________ Kansas University: Duke TIP participants to be honored at KU More than 500 Kansas seventh-graders will be honored this weekend at Kansas University for their involvement in Duke University’s Talent Identification Program (TIP). The students will attend a ceremony at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Lied Center. TIP honors students who score in the top 5 percent on college entrance exams taken while in middle school. Some of the students also will attend classes at Duke and KU through residency programs this summer. _________________________________________ Pinckney: Neighborhood picnic to feature talk on Hughes A talk on poet Langston Hughes will be one of the highlights at today’s annual Pinckney Neighborhood Spring Picnic. The picnic will be from noon to 2 p.m. today at Clinton Park, Fifth and Alabama streets, just north of Pinckney School. Those attending are encouraged to bring their own picnic lunch and table service. Bill Tuttle, Kansas University professor of American studies, will present an informal talk on Hughes and his ties to Lawrence. Guests are also encouraged to bring outdoor game sets and musical instruments.

Andrea Perdue, who graduated last week from LHS, placed second in the 10th- through 12th-grade division of the art and writing contest coordinated by the museum in Washington, D.C. She received a $300 check and $100 gift certificate to the museum’s shop. Five written entries and three art entries were awarded prizes by the museum’s judging committee. More than 2,300 students from 41 states competed in this year’s contest. Students were asked to explain through writing or art why teaching about the Holocaust remains important in contemporary society. _________________________________________ Gasoline Prices: Pump Patrol seeks best deal The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.25 at Site at 23rd and Haskell streets.
