LIED CENTER GROUNDBREAKING DELAYED
January 13, 1990
Kansas University has postponed the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Lied Center for the performing arts previously scheduled for Friday.

COURT HEARS CITY-FIREFIGHTERS DISPUTE
January 13, 1990
A dispute between Lawrence firefighters and the city of Lawrence went before a district judge Friday, as attorneys argued the legality and validity of a work agreement between the two sides. The hearing, held in the courtroom of Douglas County District Judge Ralph M. King Jr., stemmed from a suit brought by the International Association of Firefighters Local 1596 and four of its members against the city. Attorneys Friday argued a motion by the city for summary judgement and a cross motion filed by the firefighters.
ATTORNEY ASKS COURT TO DENY BYPASS MOTION
January 13, 1990
Douglas County’s motion asking the Kansas Supreme Court to reconsider its decision in the south Lawrence trafficway case sidesteps the main issue, contends the attorney for the plaintiff, Leslie W. Blevins Sr., Lawrence. “The heart of `Blevins (vs. Hiebert)’ is not so much an issue of who makes the rules the state or the county as it is an issue of who sets the level of county debt the voters or the county commission,” states Blevins’ attorney, Donald Strole, in his response to the county’s motion.
COUNTY AGAIN TO DISCUSS ZONING
January 13, 1990
Douglas County commissioners on Monday will reconsider a commercial zoning request for the Rock Chalk Ranch property on the northwest corner of Sixth Street and Wakarusa Drive. Commissioners voted Dec. 13 to defer consideration of the item until the property is annexed by the city of Lawrence, a decision they thought would take the matter out of the county’s hands.

COLD SHOOTING COSTS LHS, 61-56
January 13, 1990
You don’t have to be Al McGuire or Dick Vitale to know that traps, picks, boards, turnovers or any other basketball buzzwords don’t mean anything if the ball doesn’t go through the hoop. It’s elementary, really, why Lawrence High fell to Olathe South, 61-56, Friday night at the LHS gym.
T WEAR BLACK PATCHES
January 13, 1990
Roy Williams wants to clarify reports Kansas University’s basketball players will wear black patches on their uniforms for the rest of the season. The patches would have been worn as a gesture of concern for Raytown South senior Chris Lindley, the KU signee who had his right foot amputated last Sunday after a train accident.
PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH
January 13, 1990
A recent news analysis began: “More bad news for the defense industry: Peace is breaking out in Eastern Europe.” We’re led to believe that reform movements in Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Poland, Hungary and even the Soviet Union could represent a major reduction of the communist threat. Coming on the heels of Defense Secretary Richard Cheney’s proposal to cut $180 billion from the Pentagon budget, these and other recent developments suggest that tight defense budgets may get even tighter. And that’s good, within reason, of course.
LIBRARY USER
January 13, 1990
Dear Editor: I’m a sixth-grade student at Broken Arrow School, and I am unable to get an adult library card. It seems that the public library doesn’t give out adult cards until you’re in junior high. In sixth grade we do lots of reports and research and we need access to the information. I feel that when my teacher requires work for which material is needed from the adult section, and when I’m accompanied by a parent who requests that they give me an adult card that the public library should issue me one.
HOSPITAL REPORT
January 13, 1990
Dismissals Justine Cross, 1319 W. 19th Ter.; Kenneth Vorhies, Eudora; Arthur Noller, 1900 W. 31st; Angela Atwell, 1402 Prospect; Troy Prudden, DeSoto.
LIQUOR SHOULD BE NO-NO
January 13, 1990
Dear Editor: Today thousands of families are mourning the loss of a loved one, often the bread-earner in the prime of life, because of one, or a combination of all three of the following:
LOCAL POLICE TAKE A LOOK AT HISTORY
January 13, 1990
Lawrence police spend much of their time trying to stay modern: spotting crime trends, obtaining new equipment and attending training programs focusing on new law enforcement methods. But now, police officials are taking a look into their department’s past.
KU UNDER CONSTRUCTION
January 13, 1990
The record $90 million spent for building construction, renovation and repair at Kansas University during the 1980s transformed the complexion of the Lawrence campus and set the stage for another decade of unprecedented growth. Sixteen new buildings or additions were completed at a cost of $63.8 million, said Allen Wiechert, director of facilities planning at KU. The decade began with the $218,000 Foley Hall project and ended with the $5.4 million parking garage.
PLEASANT RIDGE STOPS CARDINALS LATE, 55-53
January 13, 1990
Somebody turned the heat up in the Pleasant Ridge gym in the fourth quarter. Only the host Rams felt it, though. “They got extremely hot,” Eudora coach Bob Sailler said after the Rams rallied for a 55-53 victory over his team in Easton. “They hit a bunch of three-point shots and went eight of eight at the line.”
CLARENCE E. KERNS
January 13, 1990
Services for Clarence E. “Brownie” Kerns, 82, Lawrence, are pending with Rumsey Funeral Home. Mr. Kerns died this morning at Heritage Manor Nursing Home.
SATURDAY COLUMN
January 13, 1990
Earlier this week spokesmen for Hall-Kimbrell, the Lawrence-based environmental testing company, announced approximately 40 to 45 employees were receiving notices of termination. It was not a pleasant task for Hall-Kimbrell officials and it probably came as a shock and bitter experience for those particular employees. This action came about as a result of the recently announced acquisition of Hall-Kimbrell by Professional Service Industries, Inc., of Chicago. PSI is part of an even larger company with operations throughout the world.
CONTRACT AWARDED FOR TELEPHONE SERVICE
January 13, 1990
Gov. Mike Hayden announced Friday that Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. has been awarded a contract to provide telephone service to speech- and hearing-impaired citizens of Kansas. The headquarters for the new service, which will allow speech- and hearing-impaired people to communicate with everyone by telephone, will be located in Lawrence, Hayden said.

January 13, 1990
Brian Lang figures Perry-Lecompton’s boys basketball team is caught in a vicious circle. The latest turn came Friday night as the Kaws fell to visiting Kansas City Piper, 72-51.
EUDORA GIRLS
January 13, 1990
Gretchen Freeland and Tracy Ruggles combined for 35 points as Eudora remained unbeaten in girls basketball with a 54-34 victory over Pleasant Ridge here Friday night. Freeland had 22 points and Ruggles 13 as the Cards pushed their record to 8-0.

January 13, 1990
Raytown South, playing its first basketball game since senior forward Chris Lindley lost his right foot in a train accident, breezed to an 89-52 victory over North Kansas City Friday night. Lindley is listed in stable condition at a KC hospital.
BALDWIN BEATEN, 75-70
January 13, 1990
Two long runs gave Paola a 75-70 victory over Baldwin Friday night. The Panthers, 3-4, sustained a 19-1 run in the middle of the game and scored 12 unanswered points at the start of the fourth quarter for a Frontier League boys basketball victory. Baldwin, 6-2, made it close at the end, but never regained its momentum after the first run.
