Appointment: Lawrence VFW post announces slate of officers Alford-Clarke Post 852 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, 138 Ala., recently announced its new officers for 2002-‘03. They are: Vern Russell, commander; Robert Montgomery, senior vice commander; David Drummond, junior vice commander; Jim Clovis, judge advocate; Ben Saathoff, chaplain; and John Hughes, quartermaster. The new officers will take their positions at week’s end. _________________________________________ Culture: Hospice course to examine Indian attitudes on death Midland Hospice Care of Topeka is having a workshop on American Indian perspectives on death and dying at 9 a.m. Tuesday. Intended for nurses, social workers, pastors and chaplains, the three-hour workshop at the hospice’s education center, 200 S.W. Frazier Circle, Topeka, will feature the Rev. Kara Hawkins, a Nez Perce medicine singer and spiritual healer. For more information, call Harmony Hines, (785) 232-2044. _________________________________________ Environment: City awaiting evaluation of pesticide-free parks idea The city will take its time before expanding the number of parks it puts off-limits to pesticides, officials said during a hearing Friday. Last month, the city of Lawrence dedicated three areas encompassing more than 12 acres as “pesticide-free parks.” During a follow-up hearing Tuesday with city employees and several members of the Kaw Valley Greens, Parks and Recreation Director said the city must now watch and wait for the results. “We want time to evaluate what we’re doing,” Fred DeVictor told the Journal-World. “We fully expect we can do more of those (parks) in the future.” _________________________________________ Gasoline Prices: Pump Patrol seeks best deal The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.25 at Site at 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue. 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.
