The board of directors of the Douglas County Visiting Nurses Assn. has adopted a record $1.6 million budget for 1991. The agency’s budget, adopted last week, is up about $100,000 over 1990.

LOVED ONES SEEK GROUP SUPPORT
January 20, 1991
While the men and women of the armed forces are fighting the war in the gulf, their family and friends are mobilizing their frustrations and fears into group support. The Iraqi invasion of Kuwait occurred on August 2; five days later President Bush ordered troops to the gulf. But until now, no support group existed in this area for people with loved ones serving in the Middle East.
NOTES AND QUOTES. . .
January 20, 1991
Notes and quotes while wondering if we can safely eliminate Baghdad as a potential site for a future World League of American Football franchise… It’s been nearly a year since Kansas athletic director Bob Frederick dropped that home-and-home basketball series with Notre Dame in protest of the Irish securing their own football television package. To date, Kansas remains the lone voice of dissent. Those KU-Notre Dame games, incidentally, were scheduled in 1992 and 1993…
ORDER
January 20, 1991
Supreme Court justices Friday heard arguments about a case dismissed by a Douglas County district judge when an assistant district attorney was unable to find the prosecution’s case file during the defendant’s first appearance.

Jim Flory said Judge Jean Shepherd issued the order of dismissal April 30, 1990, in the case of Marlon Richardson, a Kansas City man charged April 14, 1989, with a misdemeanor count of passing a bad check. Richardson was arrested April 19, 1990, in Wyandotte County and ordered to appear on the 30th.

NATURAL HABITAT?
January 20, 1991
To the Editor: I had to laugh when I read the “Public Forum,” on Wednesday, that the bald eagles were losing the natural habitat and were moving a little further downstream because of the mall.
COMMISSIONERS DEFEND DEFERRALS OF CONTROVERSIAL COUNTY ISSUES
January 20, 1991
The impatient voice from the back of the Douglas County Commission meeting room on Dec. 5 seemed to express the feelings of many members of the public who have dealt with the commission on recent major issues. “You’re going to have to make an unpopular decision with somebody, sometime, so go ahead and do it,” Glen O’Connor, Rt. 2, Berryton, said about a proposed quarry near his home.
CRUDUP SAYS HE WAS GOING FOR BALL
January 20, 1991

S CONFERENCE PROVIDES LOCAL WOMAN PERSPECTIVES ON PEACE
January 20, 1991
The ideas shared during an international youth conference in Hamburg in September shed some light on how conflicts like the one in the Middle East could be avoided, says a Lawrence resident who attended the conference. Quinci Coates, a member of Lawrence’s Church of Christ, Scientist, said the three-day conference was called “Citizens of the World, Be Free!” and looked at how worldwide brotherhood could make political borders seem insignificant.
SEVENTH CANDIDATE ENTERS SCHOOL RACE
January 20, 1991
Kevin Elliott, who filed Friday as the seventh candidate for this spring’s Lawrence school board elections, said he would like to bring self-esteem and programs discouraging peer pressure to local schools. “I have a real strong commitment to children, and I’ve always believed that peer pressure and self-esteem programs can be addressed better in the schools,” he said during an interview Saturday.
January 20, 1991
First the good news: Mel Gibson turns in a credible, emotional performance as Hamlet. Then the great news: Glenn Close is pretty amazing as Gertrude. And now the bad news: Franco Zeffirelli directed them in the newest film version of “Hamlet,” which opened Friday in area theaters. Alas, poor Franco, we know you too well.
CHARGERS HIT CHARITIES TO DEFEAT BULLDOGS
January 20, 1991
The referees for the championship game of the Baldwin Invitational school basketball game sounded more like city traffic cops than basketball officials here on Saturday night. Baldwin could not over come Alma-Wabaunsee’s second half free throw shooting as it fell, 70-60. It was the second consecutive year Baldwin placed second in its own tournament.
NUMBER OF LAWSUITS FILED AGAINST CITY INCREASING
January 20, 1991
The rising number of civil rights and tort lawsuits against the city of Lawrence and Douglas County reflects the overall trend of an increasingly litigious society, the city’s attorney said. “It’s not just the number of cases against municipalities that is increasing, but it’s increasing all over,” said Jerry Cooley, Lawrence city attorney. “There could be a number of reasons why it’s going up, but I would guess that a part of it is an antagonistic attitude in society.”
ORCHESTRA SEEKS NEW HOME
January 20, 1991
The same soft, slightly raspy voice you hear on National Public Radio’s “St. Paul Sunday Morning” trickles from the low Scottish Rite Temple stage. Instead of quizzing musicians or singers about their work, as it does on the NPR program, the voice now suggests changes in attack and tempo to a motley assortment of instrument-laden folks who make up the Kansas City Symphony.
AN EPIC FILM WITH AN EPIC SCORE
January 20, 1991
On the eve of the Second World War, the Soviet Union produced a film, with a big, triumphant score, that showed a medieval hero conquering the Germans. Now, amid the war over Kuwait, that film and its score will get a screening and hearing in Lawrence, when the Kansas City Symphony and Chorus present “Alexander Nevsky” at 8 p.m. Friday in Hoch Auditorium as part of the Kansas University Concert Series.
NIEHAUS QUINTET SIZZLES ON RECENT ALBUM
January 20, 1991
PATTERNS, The Lennie Niehaus Quintet (Fresh Sound FSR-CD 100): What a date! It’s a players’ band fronted by two former colleagues from the Stan Kenton juggernaut of the 1950s, alto saxophonist Lennie Niehaus and multi-reedman Bill Perkins, who went their separate yet successful ways until reunited for this spirited and superbly crafted session. Niehaus, now best known in Hollywood circles for his finely etched scores for movies and television, including Clint Eastwood’s paeon to Charlie Parker, “Bird,” plays with a sultry yet spare lyricism echoing such other poetic altoists as Paul Desmond, Lee Konitz and Art Pepper; still, Niehaus possesses a singular voice where heart-on-sleeve emotionalism conjoins with advanced improvisational designs.

TRIP TO GERMANY PLANNED
January 20, 1991
A Lawrence woman whose sister soon may be transferred from a military base in Germany to the war in the Middle East is seeking financial help that would enable her to fly to Europe and bring her 7- and 4-year-old nephews home. “They can’t come back by themselves, and there’s no way my sister can afford to have someone fly out there and pick them up,” said Melody McKenzie, whose sister, Robbie McKenzie, is a staff sergeant at Simbach Air Force Base near Frankfurt, Germany.
KU WOMEN VICTORIOUS AT MISSOURI
January 20, 1991
Stacy Truitt’s late steal and Terrilyn Johnson’s resultant layup helped Kansas seal a 65-60 Big Eight women’s basketball win over Missouri in Hearnes Coliseum Saturday. MU scored four points in the final minute to cut Kansas’ lead to 61-60 with 20 seconds remaining. Missouri fouled Kay Kay Hart, who missed the front end of a one-and-one opportunity, but Johnson grabbed the rebound with 19 seconds left.
BACK
January 20, 1991
Mike Maddox isn’t faking. He really does have a degenerative disc in his back, even though it didn’t look like it Saturday. Maddox, who missed nearly all of practice last week, matched his season high with 15 points in Kansas’ 91-64 waltz over Missouri in Allen Fieldhouse.
JOURNALISM PROFS HOPE MILITARY RELAXES ITS RESTRICTIONS ON PRESS
January 20, 1991
When Thursday night television viewers heard the warning sirens go off in Tel Aviv, it was clear that the war in the Persian Gulf was being covered as it occurred. “This is the first war we’ve seen develop live in front of us,” said Rick Musser, associate professor of journalism at Kansas University. “You’ve got to have guts to sit in front of a camera while the people around you are clearing out… . These are brave people under nasty conditions.”
BASKETBALL GAME OFFERS FANS A DIVERSION FROM NEWS OF WAR
January 20, 1991
Although fans of Kansas and Missouri basketball had another conflict on their minds Saturday afternoon, the war in the Persian Gulf was still a concern for many who came to watch the teams face off in Allen Fieldhouse. And some of the Jayhawk and Tiger fans, who shared their views of the gulf conflict with the Journal-World, said the game was a welcome diversion from several days of news about the festering Middle East situation.
T
January 20, 1991
Times change, names change. Even musical groups playing 18th century music are subject to the forces of change. For example, since the 1970s one musical group based in what was East Germany was known as the Camerata Musica of the DDR, as the initials by which the former nation was known.
AMAZING GRAINS
January 20, 1991
The morning’s work is well under way in the little whole grain bakery called Amazing Grains, located east across the alley from the Community Mercantile Co-op, 700 Maine. Bakers Irene Tsuneta, Brenda Frankenfeld and Sarah W. Goldberg knead, roll and shape a brown dough for the day’s bread.
?
January 20, 1991
On any other day, this certainly would have been front page news. But even though it got pushed to the inside pages Thursday by the outbreak of war in the Persian Gulf, a $700 million “tax shift” plan proposed by Kansas Gov. Joan Finney shouldn’t be overlooked.
KU OFFICIALS EXPECT MORE REFUND REQUESTS FROM STUDENTS IN GULF
January 20, 1991
It’s been difficult for Kansas University to keep a handle on the number of students who’ve been called to duty since Iraq invaded Kuwait Aug. 2. About a dozen students received full tuition refunds for the fall semester, said Bob Turvey, associate director of the Student Assistance Center. But Turvey expects to later hear from students who left campus without making any arrangements.
WILLIAM CARTER
January 20, 1991
Private memorial services for William Carter, 82, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., will be held at a later date at Oak Hill Cemetery. Mr. Carter died Dec. 30, at a Fort Lauderdale nursing home. He was cremated.
DIAPER SERVICES CASH IN ON ECOLOGICAL AWARENESS
January 20, 1991
Attitudes about changing diapers are, well, changing. Disposable diapers, which unpinned parents from such nasties as diaper pails, plastic pants and dipping, are now under environmental scrutiny because of landfill space problems.
OF POETRY, UNICORNS AND DREAMS
January 20, 1991
Sometimes actors struggle to identify with a character. Sometimes they don’t as in the case of Julie Reed, who plays Tennessee Williams’ introverted, mother-dominated Laura of “The Glass Menagerie.” “I saw the notice for auditions, and I just knew I had to try,” said Reed, a Kansas University graduate student. “I have this strong connection with the character. I’m petty shy, and my mother is pretty overbearing.”
CANDIDATES FILE FINAL FINANCIAL REPORTS
January 20, 1991
In most cases, the votes followed the campaign dollars in the Nov. 6 general election for seats in the Kansas House of Representatives and the 1st District Douglas County Commission race. That’s one conclusion that could be drawn from the final 1991 reports of candidates’ contributions and expenses.
LIONS TOP SUMNER FOR 5TH PLACE, 88-65
January 20, 1991
Lawrence High left the Topeka Invitational Tournament with a fifth-place trophy and proof that it’s no one-man team. Center Maurice Trotter was held to a season-low 10 points Saturday, but no matter.
S HOPE FOR PEACEEQUALITY
January 20, 1991
As the war in the Persian Gulf continued Saturday night, Gov. Joan Finney and about 400 Lawrence residents celebrated the vision of peace which the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. embraced. Speakers at “Let Freedom Ring Now,” the Sixth Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Banquet Celebration, couldn’t help but point out the irony of United Nations’ Jan. 15 deadline, which coincided with King’s birthday.

It’s true Missouri had 16 more rebounds than Kansas. It’s also true Kansas scored 27 more points than Missouri.
