STEARNS SCHNEIDER CAPABLE WHEN IT COUNTS
September 16, 1996
Kirk Schneider and Alan Stearns make quite a team. “We’ve ham-and-egged it the whole tournament,” Schneider, a Kansas University student from Edmond, Okla., said Sunday after he and former KU golfer Stearns edged Roger and Trent Brown of Arkansas City, 1-up in the KGA Fourball semifinals at Alvamar CC.
WAYWARD PROFESSOR
September 16, 1996
Time was, universities peeled off rolls of bills to provide their faculty members the wherewithal to fly to meetings — national and international — to lodge at the convention hotel and maybe even to enjoy a meal or two in moderation. In these austere days, however, merely showing the university flag by having a faculty member read a paper or participate in a panel is not enough. To be worthy of receiving travel funds for international meetings — 60 percent of the airfare to a maximum of $800 — a faculty member at Kansas University now has to give a paper— and then some.

Steven, 7, doesn’t have to tell Doug and Becky Eason how much he enjoys spending time with them. He drops hints everywhere and anywhere, leaving messages on their answering machine “nine out of 10 days” and up to four times a day on weekends, just to check in or tell them that he found a quarter. His big brown eyes light up when he’s out skipping rocks on the lake with Doug or at home reading with Becky.

HEISMAN FOR HENLEY?

URL SPRAWL BEGINNING TO SLOW INTERNET TRAFFIC
September 16, 1996
A year ago, World Wide Web URLs (Uniform Resource Locator) were just beginning to appear on TV commercials and in newspaper and magazine articles. Today, of course, URLs (some folks pronounce it like “Earl”; I don’t) are everywhere you look — billboards, movie trailers, print ads, comic strips, radio, you name it. All of this serves to illustrate that the Web has become an inextricable part of our popular culture. Whether this will last is yet to be seen; I’ve started to see editorials in the computer trade press which indicate that some people are getting weary of having these long, funny-looking strings of characters always in their peripheral vision.

T IDENTIFYING GUILTY … YET
September 16, 1996
Notes and quotes while wondering if June Henley can possibly do what no other Kansas football player has ever done — win the Heisman Trophy. … You may have noticed during Saturday’s Kansas-TCU game that Western Athletic Conference referee Loyd Dale announced the jersey number of guilty players following penalties. That’s a new national rule. The Big 12 has yet to embrace that rule, however, saying it is waiting for a clarification on some particulars. …

SOUND OFF
September 16, 1996
Does the city have any plans to repair the 2900 block to the 3100 block of West 27th Street? “We have no plans at this time,” said Terese Gorman, city engineer. “However, if anyone would like the city to consider it for the summer of 1997, they can write me a letter, and we will look at it real seriously.”
VA SOUND OFF
September 16, 1996
I have heard the Department of Veterans Affairs home loan program described by a military recruiter as being one of those few benefits that an honorably discharged service member can use over and over. What does that mean? When certain conditions are met, eligible veterans can move up to better homes or to different locations though their lifetime by repeatedly selling their homes and buying new ones with part of the mortgage guarantied by the government. In some cases, a veteran’s current local amount may be less than the maximum guarantee benefit, meaning he or she has some dollar value of “remaining entitlement” that can be applied to the next home purchase.

Hunter’s mother, Nanette Misener, was out of town, and his father, Michael Misener, was in and out of the house and at work at a Topeka pet store much of the weekend.
REPAVING TO BLOCK BRIDGE TRAFFIC
September 16, 1996
Milling trucks are scheduled to scrape asphalt from the top of streets south of the Kansas River bridge today, and you know what that means. “There’s going to be congestion,” said Vicki Cummiskey, the city’s communications coordinator. “It’s going to be rather tough to get through. Try to find an alternate route.”
