Edward James Wise, a Kansas City, Kan., transient, is suspected in the crime and was arrested downtown Thursday night after being tased. Carjacking victim feels ‘lucky’ to have survived

It was supposed to be a quick stop at Dairy Queen to treat her sweet tooth. But the 67-year-old longtime Lawrence resident received more than the small vanilla cone she paid for Thursday night in the drive-through of the restaurant at 1835 Mass. She received a terrible scare when her life was threatened. A man stole Barbara Trouslot’s car at gunpoint and crashed it in downtown Lawrence before officers arrested him.

Area transportation planners have identified $732 million worth of road projects needed in Douglas County between now and 2030. The list includes all the usual suspects: a completed South Lawrence Trafficway, a widened Kansas Turnpike, and a new West Lawrence interchange for the SLT and Bob Billings Parkway. But the list also includes a host of new projects, such as a southward extension of Wakarusa Drive and new turn lanes and other improvements for about 15 intersections on Iowa and 23rd streets.

Boulder, Colo. - It took a little more than a half of the next game to do it, but Kansas University shook the rust following Wednesday’s 84-75 loss to Kansas State by taking care of business on the road in a 72-59 triumph over Colorado. Darnell Jackson led the Jayhawks with 18 points (10-of-10 from the line), while Brandon Rush - invisible in the second half Wednesday night - scored eight of his 15 points in the second half. Sasha Kaun had 12 for KU, while Sherron Collins - who left in the first half with a knee injury and had four turnovers to his credit - finished with nine points in a solid second half run. Mario Chalmers scored eight, including a huge back door dunk late to send CU fans packing.
