Plans to build sewage lagoon upset some church neighbors Some neighbors in the area of the new Heritage Baptist Church being built at North 1800 and East 800 roads are upset that plans call for a sewage lagoon to be constructed nearby. The Rev. Scott Hanks, church pastor, doesn’t blame the neighbors, but says the church has no other choice. _______________________________________________ Jayhawk basketball: Alumni Association plans ‘Sweet 16’ pep rally Friday The Kansas University pep band will start the ball rolling Friday with a pregame rally at the Madison Concourse Hotel Ballroom in Madison, Wis. To get primed for the Jayhawks’ Sweet 16 showdown with Illinois in the NCAA Tournament, KU alumni and friends are invited to begin gathering at 3 p.m. in the Concourse Hotel, 1 W. Dayton St. At 4 p.m. in the ballroom, the pep band and Spirit Squad will swing to the beat of “I’m a Jayhawk.” The KU Alumni Association will host the event at the Concourse, which is the official team hotel. After the rally, fans can head to the Kohl Center in Madison for the first-session game at 6:55 p.m. between No. 2 seed Oregon and No. 6 seed Texas. KU, seeded No. 1 in the Midwest, will face No. 4 seed Illinois in the second game, about 9:15 p.m. For more information, call the Alumni Association at (800) KU-HAWKS or check www.kualumni.org, or tourney.kusports.com. _______________________________________________ Crime: Driver arrested after chase An 18-year-old Lawrence man was arrested by Lawrence Police on Friday night after he allegedly led them on a car chase. Randy D. Berglund was taken to the Douglas County Jail on charges of attempting to elude police, reckless driving and others. According to police reports, about 10 p.m. a patrol officer saw two Ford Mustangs traveling at high speed south on Massachusetts Street from 19th Street. The officer pursued one of the cars, a red 1980 Mustang, through several streets before losing it around 15th and Massachusetts streets, a report said. A short while later another officer saw the car at 23rd Street and Learnard Avenue and was able to stop it, reports said. Berglund was released from jail Saturday morning and given a notice to appear Wednesday in Lawrence Municipal Court. _______________________________________________ Courts: Customer files lawsuit after being locked in store A Lawrence man who said he was intentionally locked inside a convenience store so that he was unable to leave after a dispute last year with a clerk has filed a lawsuit against Zarco 66, 900 Iowa. James Hardman, 39, is seeking damages in excess of $75,000 against the store and the clerk named only as “Jane Doe.” Hardman and his attorney, David Berkowitz, will try to identify the clerk during proceedings. On Sept. 18, 2001, Hardman was inside the store making a purchase when the clerk electronically locked the store so he couldn’t leave for 25 minutes. According to a report taken by Lawrence Police at the time, Hardman and the clerk exchanged angry words when she refused to give change for a hundred dollar bill for purchase. A second clerk in the store did make the change, however. The owner of the store, Scott Zaremba, said he had not seen the lawsuit and declined to comment. _______________________________________________ Pump Patrol: Journal-World seeks the lowest gasoline prices The Journal-World has found a Lawrence area gasoline price as low as $1.23 at several North Third Street stations. If you find a lower price, please call us at 832-7154. Be prepared to leave the name and address of the business and the price.
