Show cats strut their stuff Seventy feline fanatics from as far away as Canada brought 131 cats to the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds this weekend for the sixth annual Kansas City Midwest chapter of the American Cat Fanciers Assn. cat show. Shawnee resident Jody Lawson, president of the Midwest chapter and show manager, said the cats were divided into four breeds for judging: kittens, breeding cats, spayed and neutered purebreds and household pets. Above left, Joe Lauria from WDAF-TV in Kansas City, Mo., judges the cat of Iowa resident Kitty Osborn. “Windmills Red’s Double-Flash” competed in the best cat costume category Saturday. ___________ Learning: Schools for Chiapas forum to explore Mayan culture “Schools for Chiapas,” a forum on Mayan culture, history, art and politics, will be at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Ecumenical Christian Ministries, 1204 Oread Ave. The forum will include arts and crafts, puppet shows, speakers, slide shows and a documentary video. Schools for Chiapas is a nonprofit organization based in San Diego that builds schools for Mayan communities in the highlands of rural southwestern Mexico. Those attending the forum are asked to bring school supplies for the Mayan communities. For more information, contact Peter Brown at schoolsforchiapas@schoolsforchiapas.org, or call (619) 232-2841. ___________ Science: Astronomer plans lecture Topeka Paul Butler, one of the astronomers credited with the recent discovery of planets around other stars, will deliver “Extrasolar Planets” at 8 p.m. Saturday at White Concert Hall at Washburn University, 13th and Jewell streets. A staff scientist in the department of terrestrial magnetism at Carnegie Institution in Washington, Butler is a member of the international team that discovered 13 new planets outside our solar system.

Butler has won several science awards and has been published in Time, Newsweek, Science news, Smithsonian and other magazines. ___________ Gasoline Prices: Pump Patrol seeks best deal The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.32 at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets.
