S DEATH A LOSS TO TRADITION OF PUBLIC SERVICE
October 26, 1999
The death of Sen. John H. Chafee, the veteran Republican from Rhode Island, is more than a personal loss to his countless friends, his state and the nation. In a time of rancid partisanship, it is a reminder of a tradition of public service that looked beyond narrow ideological and class lines to an inclusive view of the public interest. Chafee was an embodiment of the Yankee Protestant commercial aristocracy — a scion of one of Rhode Island’s first families, but a man of such engaging openness that he was cherished by the working-class, Roman Catholic, immigrant and overwhelmingly Democratic constituents who repeatedly chose him as their governor and senator.

SOUNDOFF ON LOUD SCOREBOARD
October 26, 1999
What’s the reasoning behind the deafening public address announcing at the KU home football games? Darren Cook, director of facilities for the Kansas University athletics department, concedes the PA system may be a “little louder” than in the past because the speakers are mounted higher, on the new $3 million scoreboard. “We’ve heard a few complaints,” Cook said, “mainly from residents north of the stadium.” Cook added that officials received complaints even with the old system. “One time with the old system we heard from someone in Lecompton who said they could hear it,” Cook said.

HOROSCOPES
October 26, 1999
For Tuesday, Oct. 26 Those with birthdays today: You usually have the best intentions with partners, as they do with you. Yet misunderstandings happen out of the blue. Learn to clarify and confirm messages, meetings and all sorts of communication. Oddly enough, you might be vague about what you want on a personal level. If you are single, romance can be very exciting and intense. However, you might not be seeing a paramour realistically. If attached, you and your partner might play games with each other on a subconscious level. Work on relating. Make plenty of one-on-one time. GEMINI zeros in on the basics.

October 26, 1999

Her quest for the Oval Office was dogged by comments about symbol and substance. Once the woman routinely described as “the first credible female candidate” bowed out, the focus changed — from whether she was running “as a woman” to whether she lost “as a woman.”
