LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ With a new school year beginning, a coalition in Lawrence is starting another campaign to convince underage students not to drink.

A group called Draw the Line Lawrence Coalition discusses the consequences minors face when they get caught drinking. The coalition includes several area law enforcement agencies

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/NEwp7L ) that the group also stresses the importance of special patrols in bars, liquor stores and in neighborhoods. And they spread the word about recent prosecutions involving city and state drinking laws.

The coalition, law enforcement and University of Kansas officials last week distributed ``good neighbor'' packets in the Oread neighborhood around the Lawrence campus and at apartment complexes. The packets discussed laws on noise and other issues.
