SOUND OFF

It’s very difficult to get from the street to the sidewalk because of the brush and overgrowth along the parking on Mississippi Street between 11th Street and the Kansas Union. How can we get this taken care of? “It’s up to the adjacent property owner,” said Terese Gorman, city engineer. “The adjacent property owner needs to keep those paths clear — that includes dirt, debris, snow, shrubs growing over the sidewalk or tree branches that are too low.”

STRONG WOMEN AROUSE HATE FROM BOTH SEXES
September 15, 1996
Awhile back at a dinner table some of the men were sniping away at that popular target, Hillary Clinton. After a time, I spoke up and said that many men just don’t like intelligent, capable, aggressive women. There was an interesting silence, but no one disagreed with me. I look at Hillary and listen to her, and I just don’t get it, even though she’s the cool, assured type I’ve never been comfortable with. She doesn’t seem much different from Elizabeth Dole. Liddy, I’d bet, would run things about the way Nancy Reagan ran them. Liddy out on that floor with her Oprah mike was much too much for me. And the folks swooned over Nancy Reagan, but I guess the GOP loves her because she’s the type of little woman who, in public, fawns all over hubby.

SOUND OFF
September 15, 1996
Why does the new sidewalk along Kasold along Fall Creek Farms tilt so much? It’s really dangerous for tricycles and wheelchairs, and walking it isn’t much fun either. “There’s a cross slope on sidewalks so they can drain towards the street and not have standing water on them,” said Terese Gorman, city engineer. “I do not believe that that slope exceeds our specifications.”
