OCT28-25
October 28, 1999
Kansas University’s football team was nursing the wounds of a 22-2 homecoming upset at the hands of Iowa State. Instead of being an expected 5-2 for the year, KU currently had what many considered a disappointing 4-3 record. New counting boards and facilities were being added by County Clerk Delbert Mathia in an effort to make the Nov. 5 voting process as speedy and efficient as possible. He added, however, that there still was a great deal of room for improvement in the speed of counting and reporting results. He said experts predicted that electronic tabulations would alter the whole process in the relatively near future.

OCT28 - 40 YEARS AGO
October 28, 1999
A joint meeting of the city commission and traffic commission was slated to consider ways to eliminate the terrific traffic perils at Ninth and Iowa, which had a bizarre jog in crossing Iowa at Ninth. There were great fears of major accidents until the unique intersection was squared off as it is now. A building at the Callery Chemical Co. plant was damaged in the early morning hours but no injuries occurred. The plant was in the process of sharply reducing its work force and no workers were in the vicinity at the time. Evidence was that the once-$4 million boron fuel operation would soon be shut down totally.

NARROW VISION
October 28, 1999
To the editor: The article in the Oct. 20 Journal-World entitled, “Legislators concerned about school program” really bothers me in that having served on the governor’s School-To-Work advisory committee since its inception (1994) that our legislators could make such strong anti statements without telling the public what the criteria of receiving the funding and creating a School-To-Work system is. It actually was renamed to School-to Career some two years ago because of the negative reaction some in the academia field and a few state legislators had to the word “work.” The legislators that seem to make the most noise have failed to attend the meetings that created the state plan. One of the reasons Kansas was one of the last to receive the funding was because of the unclear support of our legislators.

October 28, 1999
It can bring no solace for the people of Grozny as they count their dead from indiscriminate Russian missile and artillery attacks. But their suffering does not go unmeasured. The savage assault on Chechnya brings home the need for a new international consensus U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan is trying to forge. Three times in the past seven months a national government has gone to war against its own population, etching in blood its sovereign “right” to kill as many of its own masses as it sees fit.

My father had to remove all of the solenoids himself so that the doors would operate manually. Toyota said at the time that it had never heard of such a problem and charged us $900 for the repair. I’ve heard that Toyota has since issued a recall. Any advice? — Hugh
