Airport’s open house gets up and running The second flight actually got off the ground. After an April rainout, the Lawrence Municipal Airport’s second attempt to have an open house succeeded Saturday. Several hundred people took advantage of the opportunity to view the spruced-up facilities, as well as modern single-engine planes, helicopters and a few vintage airplanes. Visitors also took $20 helicopter rides. Companies and organizations that use the airport, including GUT Works LLC, Kansas Flight Test Center, Hetrick Aircraft, Cessna and Lifestar air ambulance, showcased their wares at the airport, located on U.S. Highway 24-40, a mile east of the junction of U.S. Highways 59 and 24-40. ____________________________________________ Dedication: Restored schoolhouses marked by historical society The Jefferson County Historical Society has breathed new life into some historical schoolhouses and will dedicate them in a ceremony Saturday. The dedication, set to take place at 1:30 p.m. at Old Jefferson Town village, Oskaloosa, is being held in conjunction with the society’s June event, Picture This!, an exhibit of photography by Vicki Schweda. Ron Ellis, master of ceremonies, will honor former students who attended Tibbott, Lone Tree, Kilgour and Plum Grove country schools at their original sites. Bill Rhodes, Oskaloosa, will give a history of the moving and renovation of the four school buildings, which now house a museum and library. The photography exhibit will be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. June 9 and feature photographs of Jefferson County and northeast Kansas. Old Jefferson Town is a village of restored historical buildings from around the county that have been donated or acquired by the society and restored. ____________________________________________ Road closed: Turnpike accident injures 4 Two women were taken by helicopter early Saturday to a Kansas City area hospital after the semi tractor-trailer they were passengers in overturned on the Kansas Turnpike west of Lawrence. The male driver of the vehicle was transported by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. About 3 a.m. Saturday, James Heath, 58, Woodbine, was driving a 1996 Freightliner with an empty standard box trailer westbound on Interstate 70 when he blacked out as a result of an unknown medical condition, a turnpike dispatcher said. The truck crashed through a fence and overturned, the dispatcher said. Passengers Wanda Heath, 45, Woodbine, and Megan Deiser, 15, Salina, were listed in fair condition Saturday at KU Med. Both suffered broken bones, the dispatcher said. James Heath was listed in stable condition at LMH. Teresa Heath, 35, Manhattan, was treated at the scene. Emergency workers blocked both the east and westbound lanes of traffic about 12 miles west of the West Lawrence turnpike interchange for about 20 minutes so the helicopters could land, the dispatcher said. ____________________________________________ 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.
