D LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT THIS?
May 29, 1998
“There is a provision for repeal,” said Patty Jaimes, Douglas County clerk. “There are several different methods. One of the methods is a petition signed by not less than 10 percent of the electors of the county who voted at the last preceding general election for the office of secretary of state.” In case you’re wondering, 26,065 people in Douglas County voted for the office in 1994.

RADARS HELPFUL IN RESEARCH WORK
May 29, 1998
For those seeking unobtrusive methods of exploration into the earth, “radar” is more than just a character from M*A*S*H or a way to detect incoming aircraft. Generally speaking, the term “radar” is an acronym for radio detection and ranging. Radar is used to detect remote objects through radio waves. Ground-penetrating radar, like the name suggests, uses waves that pass through the ground, hit a remote object and bounce off the surface. The waves — which can pass through air, water, soil and even concrete — are sent and received through antennas and converted into images on a computer screen.

100 YEARS AGO
May 29, 1998
On May 28, 1898, the Lawrence World criticized a rival newspaper, the Lawrence Journal, editorializing: “We understand now why the esteemed Journal has so little to do with politics. It wants to be bought and because nobody will buy the dear old grandmother it is roaring. It licks its sore spots by making this bald statement: `It (the Journal) is not going to give candidates for office free advertising and if they expect anything they must divide their salaries to help sustain this paper.’ The Journal cannot be accused of denseness in its demand for boodle. We have often thought that that paper ought to have more attention than it was paid it but did not know that it was so notoriously on the make. We trust that some of the candidates will come to the relief of this concern as it is clealy in a bad way.”
