IN 1898
December 9, 1998
On Dec. 9, 1898, the Lawrence Journal reporting on the first sanitary convention ever held in Kansas which was meeting in the city. One of the papers delivered was KU professor Bailey regarding water sources in the state. The Journal noted: “He spoke of the sources of water as not being as good as in some eastern states on account of difference in soil. Thirty-one cities in Kansas derive their water supply from wells, nineteen from rivers, six from artesian wells, and five from rivers and wells combined. The latter, which is Lawrence’s method is probably the safest and gives the best results.” — Courtesy Watkins Community Museum

BAKED ITEMS NEED SOME SUGARFAT
December 9, 1998
I know that some sugar and fat is needed in baked products to maintain quality. Are there any recommended minimum proportions to use? Both sugar and fat can have an important impact on the foods we prepare in terms of tenderness, browning, texture and flavor. However, many of us would do well to make our recipes leaner. Of course, some would say that the products are too lean, but adding more spices such as cinnamon and cloves will help retain flavor. It’s always a good idea to gradually cut sugar and/or fat in recipes and see your family’s reaction. Here are some suggestions for just how much you can cut back and still have an acceptable product.

NO JUSTICE
December 9, 1998
To the editor: After three years, Starr could not find any criminal action on the part of the president in the Whitewater affair, Travelgate, or the death of a high level government official. Since this did not get the results he was after, he expanded his investigation into the president’s private life and finally did come up with major criminal charges: the president had the incredible nerve to deny an improper, extra-marital relationship, and allegedly went even beyond that and told the “other woman” not to talk about it either. Obviously, such criminal behavior deserves the most severe punishment available for a sitting president under our Constitution. The overwhelming majority of the American people may not agree; but that simply shows that they do understand the Congress’ constitutional obligations and duties.
