Victory astonishes fans
November 21, 1993
Unbelievable. Legendary. For Lawrence High School football fans, the sky was the limit Saturday when searching for words to describe the Lions’ 27-23 comeback victory in the Kansas 6A championship game.
NUMBERS ARE SERVICE
November 21, 1993
To the editor: Curb painting is a service, despite the poor impression given by the article “Curb Painting is no Service,” which appeared in the Journal-World recently. Two summers ago I worked with several friends painting iridescent street addresses on curbs in Lawrence. Unlike the unprofessional crew of painters portrayed in your article, we were licensed with the city. We did not leave misleading notices for residents, but rather, worked door-to-door.
MIZZOU GOES QUIETLY
November 21, 1993
Missouri never really recovered from its early season shellacking by Texas A&M.
SENIORS SIDEBAR
November 21, 1993
Winning coaches have been carried off the field in jubilation. Football players who score winning touchdowns have also been whisked off on their teammates’ shoulders. But an offensive center?
ROMME SIDEBAR
November 21, 1993
It’s not hard to see the symbolism in Brad Romme’s jersey incident. Late in the second quarter, with the Lions’ already trailing Derby, 23-0, a Panther defender ripped the jersey off Romme’s back. Romme, Lawrence High’s senior quarterback, quickly changed from his regular No. 10 to No. 12.

As a matter of clarification we hope you would let your readers know that our son, David, who was the student cited in the editorial, is a full-time second-year student at Washburn, majoring in mass communications and marketing. His educational opportunities, as well as his job opportunities, were enhanced by the training he received.
OTTAWA JV MAKES RUN, DROPS TRIBE
November 21, 1993
Chris Mendoza had 15 points to lead four Haskell scorers in double figures, but the Indians fell to Ottawa’s JV, 93-66, Saturday night at Coffin Complex. The Indians trailed by one at halftime and tied it at 44 with 15:34 left, but Ottawa went on an 18-2 run to put it away. Seven Ottawa players scored in double figures.
DERBY SIDEBAR
November 21, 1993
If someone were to write a book about Saturday’s 6A state title game it might be titled, “A Tale of Two Halves.” If Derby had known the outcome, it would have stopped reading half way through. Derby thoroughly dominated Lawrence in the first half. The Panthers’ power-I rushing attack of Justin Igo and Jason Young pounded the Lions into submission, combining for 135 yards and a touchdown in the first 24 minutes.
FIRE CALLS

SCHOOL BOARD TO RECONSIDER BOND ISSUE
November 21, 1993
The Lawrence school board Monday will revisit the issue of holding a bond issue referendum for a second high school in fall 1994. The Commission on Mid-Level and High School Education recommended in July 1992 that such a referendum be held. Commission members told the board Nov. 8 that they still believe a second high school is needed.
KU GAME
November 21, 1993
Mauling Missouri, 28-0, Saturday in the last game of the season might not have made Kansas season, but it sure didn’t hurt. “We wanted to win the game for the seniors, and we saw it as a building block for next year,” junior guard John Jones said. “It was a disappointing season, but we stuck together. You can really feel the camaraderie.”

KU-MU RIVALRY STILL BURNS BRIGHT

KU GAME STORY
November 21, 1993
The 1993 season spoke volumes about Kansas’ football program, and Saturday’s season-ender spoke volumes about the 1993 Jayhawks. Though battered by injury, KU won three and terrified two Big Eight frontrunners in its last six games.
CONSERVATIVES GET BACK TO BASICS
November 21, 1993
Conservative Republicans have formed their own club within the local GOP structure and have started a local newsletter offering conservative viewpoints.
T FAZE KU PLAYERS
November 21, 1993
June Henley didn’t rob Fort Knox, he didn’t pilfer the crown jewels from the Tower of London and he didn’t set fire to the White House. Kansas’ freshman running back was cited last week in a misdemeanor shoplifting incident.

November 21, 1993
Some Tae Kwon Do students have taken some of their spare time and talents to help raise money for two seriously ill Lawrence residents and their families.
LHS GAMER
November 21, 1993
The thought that 1993 would be remembered as the year The Streak died apparently didn’t sit well with Lawrence High’s football team. So the Lions wiped that asterisk from the record books and replaced it with an exclamation point instead.

LHS SIODEBAR
November 21, 1993
Dick Purdy’s words carried more magic than he imagined. As Purdy was walking to the Lawrence High locker room with the Lions reeling from a lopsided first half, Purdy couldn’t think of anything to say to light a fire under the Lions.
