FINDING SOMETHING NEW BY SIMPLY STAYING PUT
September 3, 1999
We have returned to our post, holding on to the tail end of summer as it races away from us. In front of me a scene stretches out as familiar as the face in my mirror: A tidal cove, a clam flat, a lobster boat motoring laconically from one string of traps to the next. A flock of seagulls follows the boat like oxpeckers on the backs of African cattle.

AMUSEMENT PARK PERILS
September 3, 1999
The growing number of “roller-coaster” accidents should be no surprise. Recent news reports have carried what seem to many an alarming number of accidents involving thrill rides, such as roller-coasters, at various amusement parks. Some are amazed that there should be such a profusion, but even moderate analysis removes the mystery about such occurrences.

25 YEARS AGO
September 3, 1999
Recommendations for conditional amnesty for Vietnam War draft resisters and deserters surprisingly got reasonably general acceptance by local veterans of a number of wars. Washington planned to grant amnesty to draft-evaders willing to serve 18 months of public service upon their return to America from their places of exile. Lawrence listed a record-breaking morning temperature of 46 degrees, four degrees below the previous mark. The Labor Day weekend had been dominated by readings only in the 50s at the “hottest” part of the day.
OLD HOME TOWN 100
September 3, 1999
IN 1899 On Sept. 3, 1899, the Lawrence World observed: “The benefits of doing the right thing by the university are already apparent. The institution has been equipped with ten new instructors and the work the coming year will be the best and most satisfactory ever known. Kansas is a great school state and its greatness is being added to each year. The precedent set by the legislature will work so satisfactorily that the next one will be anxious to continue the good work.”
40 YEARS AGO
September 3, 1999
Kansas Gov. George Docking criticized State Sen. Don Hults, Lawrence Republican, for stating that the state’s finances were in such good shape that a surplus would occur at year’s end and that the money should be diverted to vital projects such as schools and roadways. Docking, a frequent critic of Hults, said the Lawrence senator was “grandstanding” for Republicans for the next election. And the governor declared that if more students spent more time studying rather than preparing for the popular Rock Chalk Revue they would be better off. Recent Rock Chalk skits had roasted the governor sharply.

New Lawrence High head football coach Dirk Wedd sounds like he’s ready to strap on the gear and join his Lions on the field for tonight’s season opener. “I can’t wait,” said Wedd, an all-state lineman for the Lions in 1969 and an LHS assistant for nine years before being promoted in May. “It’s like you’re a little kid and it’s Christmas and you can’t wait to open the presents. I would like to open the big presents to see where we are at.”
