NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT
November 19, 1999
The United Way effort is particularly commendable in view of the problems of the past. The audience applauded the other night as chairman Jeff Weinberg announced, before the end of November, yet, that the 1999-2000 Douglas County United Way drive had met its $1.34 million goal. Those who have been around through the years realize there were many times when officials, workers and the community could not be so proud as the current team deserves to be.
KDOT RESPONDS
November 19, 1999
To the editor: I would like to correct some of the statements in your editorial of Nov. 15, “KDOT ‘process’.” Let’s start with your contention that the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) completely altered the options for improving U.S. 59 without “informing Douglas County or Franklin County commissioners, Ottawa or Lawrence City commissioners or even state legislators who represent the area.”

GOP CHARACTER VSPERSONALITY
November 19, 1999
In the past week, Sen. John McCain has roared within reach of Gov. George W. Bush. The closer he gets to Bush, and the closer the campaign gets to the New Hampshire primary, the more the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination looks like a classic battle not of issues, but of character and personality. But the unexpected turn in the 2000 contest — a race that may yet be shaped anew by publisher Steve Forbes, whose billions make him the great unknown factor in the GOP fight — is that the two leading contenders have actually transformed the campaign into a choice between character and personality.

BAKER
November 19, 1999
Baldwin — As three of his team’s opponents this season prepared for postseason play, Baker University football coach John Frangoulis could only spend this week mulling over a season in which his team came exceedingly close to achieving such a feat.
