ACCESS LINE SOUNDOFF
July 25, 1999
Why isn’t the pro wrestling category on the Journal-World’s Access line anymore? The Journal-World decided last month to pare down Access Line offerings to focus on the local information people use most. Analysis showed that many of the categories went virtually unused, while the information lines for parks and recreation, stock quotes, and time and temperature were most popular. Many of the categories that were eliminated as of July 1 were provided through a satellite service that charged for the information.

MCGOVERN WRESTLING AT SSG
July 25, 1999
Everything 14-year-old Nick McGovern has done as a wrestler so far has oozed of Lawrence High tradition. He wears his “lucky” red shoes — the Lions’ predominant color — and red-striped gray singlet. At the Sunflower State Games wrestling tournament Saturday, he sat in the same Lawrence gymnasium where his father, Ken, prepared for his 1978 state championship.

KANSAS OPEN HISTORY
July 25, 1999
Here is a year-by-year summary of the Kansas Open golf tournament, held annually at Alvamar Golf Club: 1976 — The first tournament was highlighted by a playoff, won by Californian Phil Rodgers on the second hole. Rodgers, who took home $2,000, shot a 2-under-par 70 in the final round, tying Jim White at 213. White bogeyed the second playoff hole. Rodgers had missed a two-foot par putt on No. 18 to send it into a playoff. Tulsa’s Ron Streck held the lead over the first two days but ballooned to a 77 in the final round and finished at 216.
MAYERCOLJULY24OR25-99
July 25, 1999
Once, kids had no television and had to read about star athletes in newspapers or listen about them on radio, through commentators or play-by-play announcers. You’d concoct all-star games and devise matchups of big stars and wonder how it would go. There was the annual baseball all-star game and you’d be glued to a radio to listen to the golden throats describe the action. My most memorable moment came when Boston’s Ted Williams hit that homer that won the 1941 all-star game for the American League.
KEHDE COLUMN FOR JULY 25
July 25, 1999
For the largemouth bass anglers in northeastern Kansas, there is no finer time than June, July and August. Even at the virtually bassless waters of Clinton, Perry, Hillsdale and Pomona lakes, a fortunate and savvy angler can tangle with a bevy of nice-sized bass on the best of summer outings. One of those grand occurrences happened to Kevin Davis of Lawrence on June 19 at Hillsdale. That was when Davis enjoyed the finest tournament outings in his life, winning the Lawrence Sunflower Bassmasters club tournament by catching six big bass.

COVERAGE LAUDED
July 25, 1999
To the editor: Last weekend, ABC’s Good Morning America held up the covers of several national newspapers reporting the lost plane of JFK, Jr. Some were dramatic; some “sensational.” None of those GMA displayed was as good a cover design as your Sunday edition (July 18) of the Lawrence Journal-World. During these sad days, that cover held a hopeful poignancy as we prayed for a successful rescue.
OUTDOORS BRIEFS
July 25, 1999
The Wednesday Night Bass Anglers staged a Sunday tournament at Hillsdale Lake on July 18. Tom VanKeirsblick of Garner and Shawn Campbell caught five bass that weighed 22.28 pounds to take the first place purse of $456. Ken Sloan of Hillsdale and Jeff Stout of Shawnee caught one bass that weighed 4.30 pounds to finish in second place; they won $304. VanKerisblick and Campbell caught the big bass of the tourney and won an addition $150. Gary Van Pielt of Frontenac announced that he has begun a guiding service on the Kansas River. It will feature Van Pielt’s prowess at catching monster flathead catfish. In June, Van Pliet was featured on Jimmy Houston’s ESPN fishing show. On that show Van Pielt and Houston caught and released a 70- and 80-pound flathead. Last week, Van Pliet tangled with a 55- and 70-pounder. For more information about the guide service call Van Pielt at 888-867-4600.
WATCH OUT FOR INTERSTATES WHILE TRAVELING
July 25, 1999
If driving around Lawrence has driven you batty this summer you should be told what it’s like in Salt Lake City. This is the second year we have gone to Salt Lake City, and it’s maddening out there. Three people told us they no longer like living in Zion. The fat cats who want to get fatter and who gave us the Olympics scandal have the city all torn up for the big show. They’re talking of tearing up more streets and buildings. Temple Square may be safe. Don’t drive into downtown Salt Lake. Beware of Interstates 15 and 215 (though a jaunt we took along 35 in Kansas City last week was about as awful.) We’re just not made for these roads. Years ago one of our daughters said we shouldn’t be permitted to drive on modern highways. She just may have been right.

July 25, 1999
IN 1899 On July 25, 1899, the headlines read “NATURAL GAS — Prospectors Certain That There is Natural Gas on the Deichmann Farm,” in the Lawrence World. The World told: “Three men well acquainted with the indications of gas regions, two from town and one from another gas region are positive that there is a gas field under the Deichmann farm near Wakarusa … . The land on the farm has every mark of a gas district and creek that flows through the farm gives further evidence. The first well driven will be sunk near the creek and will be sunk about September 1.”

SENTIMENT REPLACES JUDGMENT
July 25, 1999
Death is for the old. When it strikes the young, the pain and grief are multiplied. All of us, in our private lives, have wept with parents who have lost children, spouses who have lost partners. It never seems right. Over the years, I can recall writing about many public officials who died much too soon: Rep. Paul Henry, the fine, conscientious Republican from Grand Rapids, Mich., or Rep. Mike Synar, the blithe Democrat and reformer from Muskogee, Okla. Much earlier, there was Ira Kapenstein, a former journalist who helped the late Larry O’Brien convert the Postal Service from a patronage sinkhole into a modern business. The newsroom of The Washington Post still grieves for colleagues such as Ann Devroy and Bill Peterson, also struck down by cancer long before their time.

PROJECT OF THE WEEK
July 25, 1999
Most lawn chairs based on popular Adirondack designs have the twin benefits of comfort and classic styling. That’s why they’re popular. Without sacrificing either one, this build-it-yourself version adds a third benefit to the list: It folds up for easy storage. By day, relax and enjoy the sun in comfort. By night — or in the off season — store the chair in the garage or shed. Designed to be as roomy and sturdy as any stationary model, it still folds up in one simple step: Just life the rear-locking rail and fold the back forward.

SENSE FOR SENIORS - CREDIT CARDS
July 25, 1999
It seems like at least once a week, my wife and I get credit card offers. If we applied for four or five credit cards, could we use them all simultaneously? Are they all pretty much the same? Credit card payment problems are the leading cause of chapter 7 consumer bankruptcy filings. Many consumers take advantage of minimum payment provisions and multiple opportunities to obtain new cards, teaser rates and high credit limits to meet pressing family needs. Yes, you can use numerous cards at the same time. No, all cards are not alike.
STAR LOG
July 25, 1999
Here’s a look at significant stellar events this month. Aug. 1: The pleasures of the summer sky get even better this month as the sun sets a little earlier. By 10 p.m., it’s dark even by astronomers’ standards, with the sun 15 degrees below the horizon. By this hour, Venus has set, leaving Mars alone to represent the planets from its position above the southwestern horizon. If you face north, the Big Dipper (turned “cup-side down”) is to the left of the North Star, Polaris. And in the east, one of the best sights of early fall is coming into view, the blue stars of the summer triangle.
