Lawrence Memorial Hospital on Tuesday opened the doors to the new Simons Center for Emergency Medicine, the bright new addition that is part of a $50 million hospital expansion. “It’s a dream we’ve had for a number of years,” Dr. Scott Robinson, emergency department medical director, said as he stood in the new 28,000-square-foot center. The hospital conducted a ribbon cutting and open house for the department, which opens for patients March 6.

Kansas University students walk to their dormitory on Daisy Hill earlier this week as the last of the day's sunlight illuminates a residence hall in the distance.

Crime at Kansas University’s residence halls has decreased about 20 percent from 2005 to 2007, according to a Lawrence Journal-World computer-assisted analysis. “I think a lot of that has to do with education,” said Capt. Schuyler Bailey, KU Public Safety Office spokesman. “We start talking to our students (about crime prevention) in the summer before they ever get here.”

While many junior high school students play Guitar Hero, they readily admit it’s nothing like playing the real thing. After watching two talented classical guitarists perform, that notion was only confirmed. “It was very cool,” said Alex Kong, a Southwest ninth-grader who plays the popular video game, but not the real musical instrument.

AMES, Iowa - Many - if not all - eyes were on Darrell Arthur heading into Wednesday night’s Kansas University road trip to Ames, Iowa. Led by 18 points from the sophomore forward - three days after his roughest outing of the season in a 61-60 loss at Oklahoma State - KU ousted a pesky Iowa State club 75-64 in Hilton Coliseum, improving to 25-3 overall and 10-3 in league play. More importantly, the well-rounded showing from the Jayhawks gave KU a nice boost heading into Saturday’s rematch with Kansas State in Allen Fieldhouse. It will be KU’s most anticipated home game of the 2007-08 season, followed Monday night with a Senior Night matchup against Texas Tech.
