On Saturday, Wendy Reed, left, replaced the bicycle that Casandra, 9, right, lost when she was hit by a car in North Lawrence.

SOUNDOFF ON KU MARCHING BAND
March 30, 1999
I’ve heard a rumor that the KU athletics department is going to prevent the marching band from marching down the hill on game days because of vendor complaints. Is this true? It is not true, Janelle Martin, KU athletics department liaison to the band, said. The band’s path down the hill was altered last season to avoid some concession tents, but Martin stressed: “We haven’t eliminated the band marching down the hill.”

March 30, 1999
In case you’re trying to remember what was going on 50 years ago in the year of your high school or college graduation, I’ll help you. (I’ve looked it up or pulled it out of that Internet I call my brain.) Maybe you’d like to make a tape of the songs that were on Your Hit Parade. Someone did something like that for my wife’s 40th. The biggest show on Broadway was “South Pacific,” so you’d have “Some Enchanted Evening” and “There Is Nothing Like a Dame.” The biggest movie song was, probably, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Someone, Tony Bennett, I think, let his love fall into careless hands, and the sun in the morning was peeking over Mocking Bird Hill.

GOING HOME: NO NEED TO BE LIMITED BY BROWSER CONFIGURATIONS
March 30, 1999
OK, class, it’s time for a brief tutorial about your Web browser and its home page. This is going to be pretty basic material, so if you think you already have this stuff figured out, we’ll see you next time. But if you’ve ever wondered why some people’s browsers start with different home pages than yours does, this is for you. First, let’s talk about the term “home page.” In some cases, this term refers to the starting page of someone’s Web site. In other words, you could say that the Microsoft home page is located at www.microsoft.com (that’s a URL, which stands for Uniform Resource Locator, which is a way to describe where things are on the World Wide Web). The home page for Kansas University is located at www.ukans.edu, and my personal home page is located at http://lark.cc.ukans.edu/~heacock/.
