All stories

February 29, 1992

VOTER SPEAKS
February 29, 1992
To the editor: I have lived in Lawrence 30 years. We have an election coming up and I have seen bonds voted in and bonds voted out through the years. When the bonds are voted out we always hear, “People don’t care about the city, the schools,” or whatever the bond is addressing. When the vote goes for the bond, some person or group of people who have come out against the bond hire a lawyer to stop it. They do that because they think the people who voted the bond in don’t have sense enough to read it correctly or make up their own minds.

BIG EIGHT TITLE BECKONS
February 29, 1992
It’s self-respect and self-confidence time for the Kansas basketball team. Conditions are ripe for the Jayhawks to acquire a lot of both before the tournament grind. Until last Monday, Kansas hadn’t won both regular-season games from Oklahoma since 1986. Before that, it was ‘81. With that notch on the gun, KU could do much more for its image and ego by getting even Monday with Oklahoma State for that 64-56 defeat at Stillwater. With Sean Sutton scooting around like a turpentined Kevin Costner, it seemed like the men beating the boys at OSU. KU should have benefitted from having Byron Houston benched so long by fouls, but it free-threw like sausages and appeared to be intimidated.

TO LIFE
February 29, 1992
A lot happens in “The Road to Mecca,” Athol Fugard’s meditative yet dramatic play that opened Friday night at the Lawrence Community Theatre. That may not be apparent from a synopsis
LIONS SURVIVE, 52-46
February 29, 1992
Between Shawnee Mission South’s zone defense and ball-control offense and Lawrence High’s own impatience, Friday was a short, ugly night in the SM South gym. Ugly because both teams shot only about at 40 percent.
T QUIET KANSAS BATS
February 29, 1992
Sure, the object of the game is for one team to score more runs than the other, but over the past few baseball games, Kansas has been following that formula to ridiculous extremes. After a 17-1 pasting of Southeast Missouri State on Friday at Hoglund-Maupin Stadium, the Jayhawks have outscored their opponents, 56-6, over the past four games.

BALDWIN BOMBS GARNETT
February 29, 1992
