SPEECHES HIT TARGET FOR DELEGATE
August 22, 1992
The close of the 1992 Republican National Convention marks a turning point in GOP politics, a weary but inspired Lawrence delegate said today. “We’ve been coming to it since the Reagan era started in 1980,” said Ron Todd. “Now, we’re clearly in the Bush-Quayle era.”
91 FLOPPEROO
August 22, 1992
In the three seasons since he arrived from Texas-El Paso, Bob Stull has taken Missouri from the outhouse to the training room. Stull’s Tigers went 2-1-1 in their first four games in 1991, opening with a win over Illinois, tying Indiana and beating Memphis State.
TIGERS NO TURF TABBIES

S RAID A GRIM ADVENTURE
August 22, 1992
Some of the mystique and glamour of the story of Quantrill’s Raid on Lawrence was replaced Friday night by sympathy for the survivors and an understanding of the political climate that drove men to murder. Steve Jansen, director of the Elizabeth M. Watkins Community Museum, described the 1863 massacre by William Quantrill and his band of pro-slavery raiders before almost 200 people packed into the museum’s first floor on the 129th anniversary of the raid.

RESPONSE ON GUNS
August 22, 1992
To the editor: In response to the editorial, Deadly Defense, on Aug. 13, 1992, I would like to know why the author of the article did not research his material. All one has to do is look back to the city of Los Angeles during the recent riot. The only stores there were not looted were the ones that were protected by owners and employees with firearms.
TWISTED, TORN AND GNARLED
August 22, 1992
President George Bush recently responded to critics who favored a simplistic solution to the complicated problem of civil war in the former Yugoslavia. To people calling for U.S. military strikes to resolve the issues, Bush angrily replied that nothing would be solved by such a move because “the situation there is far more complicated than most anyone realizes.” The longer one looks at the clashes of the Serbs, Muslims and Croatians in the Bosnia-Herzegovina region, the more snarled the scenario becomes, to the point one may wonder if there ever can be a peaceful solution. There is the entwinement of religion, economics, social structure, ethnic resentment and just about any other aspect of human disharmony.
RECRUITING GAMES
August 22, 1992
The finagling that has taken place concerning a prominent college basketball player isn’t likely to make the rivalry between Kansas University and Missouri University any friendlier. KU’s head basketball coach, Roy Williams, was understandably upset to learn last week that Julian Winfield, a 6-foot-4 guard, would renege on his oral commitment to transfer from St. Louis University to Kansas. Winfield’s father, Lee, informed Williams by telephone that Julian had decided to follow the elder Winfield to a new coaching job at another university.
FASTEST GROWTH
August 22, 1992
Service industries, where the state’s employment growth has been concentrated in recent years, are changing the dynamics of the Kansas labor market, one of the state’s premier economists said Friday. Jarvin Emerson, a Kansas State University economics professor known for his monthly reports on the state’s index of leading economic indicators, which he helped develop, said basic industries, such as oil and gas, agriculture and manufacturing outside the aircraft industry have lost jobs since the mid-1980s.
MINOR INJURIES PLAGUE JAYHAWKS
August 22, 1992

S ECONOMIC BLUEPRINT OUTDATED, AUTHOR SAYS
August 22, 1992
Although Kansas has revitalized its business climate since the mid-1980s, a Kansas University professor says the economic development strategy he helped design may be out of date. “The overall climate in the state … has essentially improved tremendously,” said Tony Redwood, executive director of KU’s Institute for Public Policy and Business Research.
LIQUOR LAW BATTLE SHAPING UP
August 22, 1992
Although in its early stages, a battle over the liquor-by-the-drink question that will be on the November ballot is brewing in Douglas County. On one side, bar owners are working to pool their resources and register voters to pass less restrictive drinking laws in the county.
MAN ARRESTED FOR ROBBING GROCERY STORE
August 22, 1992
Following a six-hour standoff, police early this morning arrested a 35-year-old Lawrence man suspected in the armed robbery of a North Lawrence grocery store Friday night. Lawrence police Lt.

DENTIST DISPLAYS MEDIA GUIDE
August 22, 1992
It’s not difficult to get excited about the promising 1992 Kansas football season, especially with the Chiefs in their disappointing trance of Kansas Citius El Floppo. But you don’t expect to go to a dentist for an extra jolt of Crimson and Blue enthusiasm. Still, that happened during a recent trek to the White Fang Parlor of Mark Edwards, erstwhile young periodontist who used to play basketball in our driveway. Mark was an all-sports star at Lawrence High, starred as a defensive back for Sandy Buda at University of Nebraska-Omaha, then specialized at LSU in periodontistry (your teeth are OK, but your gums gotta come out).
FIRE RESCUE
August 22, 1992
Lawrence firefighters gave oxygen Friday afternoon to four small dogs rescued from a burning mobile home. According to a fire department spokesman, the fire was reported at 3:44 p.m. Friday at Green Acres mobile park, 1045 E. 23rd. Someone apparently placed a cardboard box on a stove and left the mobile home. The dogs, who were unconscious when firefighters arrived, were revived with oxygen. They were taken to Bradley Animal Hospital, where they were treated and returned to their owner. The fire department spokesman estimated smoke and fire damage to the mobile home at $5,000. Most of the fire damage was confined to the kitchen.
SATURDAY COLUMN
August 22, 1992

CORRECTION

HOPE, HARD WORK KEYS TO SUCCESS
