Two Kansas University seniors did the Jayhawk basketball program proud with some top academic achievements.

ALL NOT LOST
May 20, 1999
To the editor: On May 4, your paper featured a compelling photograph on the front page. It was our home that was burning down. We lost everything — or so we thought. The Lecompton firemen fought a losing battle; by the time they arrived, it was too late. But they fought nevertheless, and probably risked more than the situation deserved at that point. We will be forever grateful for their efforts and their kindness.

TWISTER EXHIBIT TO HIT LIBRARY

An ominous quiet preceded the deadly tornado that swooped down and left a path of destruction in Old West Lawrence, downtown and North Lawrence, turning homes into kindling wood. “Houses were turned over, out buildings carried completely away, trees torn up by their roots and thrown against houses and into the street and travel is almost impossible in the cyclone district.

CREDIT TRAPS MANY CONSUMERS
May 20, 1999
“Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.” When Janis Joplin sang this lyric I am sure that she was not thinking about credit cards, but these days freedom and credit card debt are terms that must go together. Almost every week I receive at least one offer to get a new credit card. I have noticed that when undergraduates enroll at KU they are inundated with offers of credit cards. The same is true throughout their college days and upon graduation. Indeed, it often seems easier to get a credit card than to get a checking account.

To the editor: Nothing is more aggravating than the “Road Closed” sign indicating the massive construction taking place at the intersection of Vermont and Ninth Street in downtown Lawrence. Unless, you work at U.S. Bank and have to deal with the hundreds of cars that fly through the parking lot using the little room we have as a shortcut from Ninth to Vermont. Is it really a shortcut? Maybe. Will it continue to be a shortcut once someone is killed? That is the question.

Spinach, which must do most of its growing before temperatures rise into the high 70s, can be planted as early in the season as late February. Once the weather turns hot, spinach will stop producing new, edible growth, the leaves will turn tough, the flavor will change and then the plants will bolt.

ROLE

The court ruling transfixed this city but probably has been barely noticed elsewhere. It should be noticed. It touches the vitality of representative government. Last week a federal appeals court ruled, 2-1, that some air quality standards promulgated by the Environmental Protection Agency were so ill-defined and unprincipled that the EPA must have exceeded its powers in setting them. It must have because — this is the dynamite in the court’s decision — Congress would have acted unconstitutionally if it had delegated such unfettered authority under the Clean Air Act.
