May 16, 1999
IN 1899 On May 16, 1899, the Lawrence World’s headlines read “TO PAVE - The City Will Begin the Work of Paving at Once.” Discussing the previous evening’s city council meeting, the World stated: “Lawrence is going to pave. The work will begin at once as our friends the enemy says, ‘without waiting for the consent of any power on earth.’ This much was decided at the council meeting last night. The city decided to pave at once and the vote was ten to two. Councilmen Barker and Dicker of the ways and means committee, voted against hasty action….The committee to which was referred the street paving reported in favor of eight inches of stone, three inches of sand and a top layer of brick.”

GARDEN CALENDAR
May 16, 1999
Nutsedge (often called nutgrass) is a perennial grasslike weed that can be very hard to control in lawns and gardens. It produces a wide-bladed grasslike leaf. It is important to stress that this plant is a sedge and not a grass despite the similar appearance. The unique characteristic that distinguishes nutsedge from grasses is that it has three leaves — making the stem triangular. This is easy to observe just by feeling the stem with your fingers or by cutting the stem off with a knife and looking down on the cut surface: It will obviously be triangular.

SHOWDOWN BREWING OVER BANKRUPTCY BILL
May 16, 1999
Politics, as everyone knows, makes strange bedfellows. But it still raises eyebrows — and suspicions — to discover Hillary Rodham Clinton and Henry Hyde making common cause on the bankruptcy bill that passed the House on May 5 and is scheduled to be up for debate in the Senate this week. A year ago, when similar legislation was close to final approval on Capitol Hill, the first lady sounded the alarm inside the White House and a veto threat from the president stopped it cold. When it was revived earlier this month in the House, Hyde, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee and leader of the effort to impeach and remove President Clinton, found himself in the odd position of repeating some of her arguments.

MAYER COLUMN
May 16, 1999
The National Basketball Assn. has had a full portfolio of public relations disasters. The recent lockout and the shortened, unspectacular professional season only added to the malaise of Michael Jordan’s retirement, the Chicago Bulls’ collapse and the ongoing Dennis Rodman debacle. You’d think the NBA might rethink some of its self-destructive tendencies, such as including college kids in the draft before their original classes have gone through the “traditional” four-year cycle. If they red-shirt into a five-year format and choose to leave after the fourth year, OK. But colleges and the NBA would benefit in many ways if the old policy was in vogue.

CALDER PICKETT
May 16, 1999
When I saw the Portland, Ore., postmark I had a bad twinge. The letter looked different from the long letters David Bernstein had written me, and it was from his daughter: Dave died of lung cancer in March. I don’t think he said anything about his illness when he wrote at Christmastime. Dave Bernstein was one of my pals in college going on 60 years ago. He was the first Jew I ever knew. In my little Idaho town there had been one Jewish family, the people who ran a clothing store in the late ‘20s. In Preston, a strictly Mormon town, opinions about non-Mormons were predictable, but by my college days I had been reading and thinking enough, as World War II was getting started, to be ready for a friendship not quite orthodox Idaho.

NED KEHDE
May 16, 1999
The eight inches of rain that fell across northeast Kansas in April sent the rivers and streams into flood stage and roiled the reservoirs. It also foiled the anglers who ventured to Clinton, Perry, Pomona and Melvern lakes to chase crappie, largemouth bass and white bass. Not only did anglers have to contend with high and muddy waters, but the area was also bombarded with continuous cold fronts.

JUD STRONG
May 16, 1999
To the editor: The Lawrence Journal-World is in dire need of an editor. An 18-year-old student in the community has died. Your paper used a color picture, four columns wide, to bring attention to this loss and to the young man who is now gone. His senior picture was also on the front page. The article could have been a positive tribute to him. It’s great to be fun-loving and adventuresome, but the three columns on the front page were disrespectful and unjust. I am not faulting his grieving classmates; poor editing is the problem.
