HS TO MISS SENIOR STANDOUTS
May 27, 1990

FINALE
May 27, 1990
Should anyone really be surprised that Bill Freeman’s coaching career ended with a state championship? “Deep down I felt we’d win,” said Freeman, Lawrence High’s retiring track and football coach, “but being a coach as long as I have, I know you have to be realistic. I’ve seen some strange things happen.”
LIONS SETTLE FOR THIRD IN STATE BASEBALL
May 27, 1990
William Shakespeare might’ve flinched. “Lawrence and Olathe South do have a rivalry, kinda like Romeo and Juliet,” Lawrence High’s Mike Hughes said, ostensibly likening the Capulet-Montague feud of Shakespeare’s play to that between the Falcons and the Lions.

ROOTS
May 27, 1990
A kind of Old World sylvan ambience greets visitors to Oak Hill Cemetery on the east edge of Lawrence, the work of city fathers intent on providing their frontier town with a proper cemetery in the 1860s. Aged cedar and pine trees tower over many gravesites. Narrow roads wind up and down the gentle slopes, rising and falling with the natural terrain of the land, and Egyptian obelisks, Celtic crosses and Greek columns proliferate among the monuments.
EXCEPTION TO THE RULE
May 27, 1990
One person’s rule is another person’s exception. The Western Development Plan was adopted by the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission last year supposedly as a general guide to development of the city’s western growth areas.

LHS SENIORS HOLD OPTIMISTIC VIEW OF FUTURE
May 27, 1990
While Lawrence High School’s achievements in academics, athletics and other areas have given this year’s seniors a sense of pride, many of them say events occurring thousands of miles away have given them a sense of optimism about the future. It was during this school year that the Berlin Wall came down after dividing East and West Germany for decades. And it was the year that several Eastern European countries Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Romania took steps toward democracy.

May 27, 1990
For Tom “Bebop” Burd, the beat didn’t stop even after his nationally known reggae band fell apart in 1986.

And the group says it’s going to be better than ever.

May 27, 1990

Among seniors responding to a Journal-World survey this month, 41 percent said they considered themselves conservative, and 59 percent described themselves as liberals. Fewer than 57 percent of seniors surveyed last year said they were liberal, and only 56 percent of seniors polled in 1988 said the same.

REASON FOR OPTIMISM
May 27, 1990
Much has been written recently about the poor state of geography education in America. But a group of youngsters who gathered in Washington, D.C., this week might trigger some optimism. A Pennsylvania sixth-grader the only girl among the 10 finalists was the winner of the second National Geography Bee. On her way to the championship Susannah Batko-Yovino, was able to correctly identify Mount Erebus as a volcano in Antarctica and Doppler radar as the type of radar used to track storms.

WOODLING COLUMN
May 27, 1990
Notes and quotes while wondering if Bo Jackson stands alone as major league baseball’s most overhyped underachiever… Don’t laugh, but the Missouri Poultry Federation is dangling a lot more than chicken feed in front of Kansas basketball coach Roy Williams. The MPF wants Williams to address their annual meeting this August in Columbia…
S DRAMATIC EXPANSION
May 27, 1990
It’s one business where tremendous growth isn’t celebrated. In fact, if you think about the huge increase in business that have occurred at DCCCA in the last 15 years, it can be troubling. From a two-person staff that ran a drug and alcohol abuse referral system begun in 1974 with a $25,000 yearly budget and operating out of a tiny storefront at 729 Mass., DCCCA has expanded and this year will operate programs statewide with an 84-person staff and a $3 million budget.

LOW-ALCOHOL BEER STILL SEEKING ITS MARKET
May 27, 1990
Among people who buy and sell liquor in Lawrence are two distinct schools of thought about the sales prospects for the 0.5 percent alcohol beers a new Kansas law now allows liquor stores and clubs to sell in Kansas. Last week, people at the two wholesale beer distributors in Lawrence were pushing the new low-alcohol products, saying they will hit the spot for people who want to drink socially but don’t want to get drunk.
