SENSE FOR SENIORS
September 5, 1999
I recently saw a full-page ad in a magazine for a book that lists “free stuff for seniors,” mostly health information or services paid for by the government. The book costs $14.95. This seems like a good buy to me, what do you think? The answer to your question comes from Carole Walton, a special agent in the Kansas Attorney General’s Office:

MOBBING THE BANK
September 5, 1999

CORRUPTION OVERTAKES RUSSIA POLICY
September 5, 1999
Corruption has replaced cooperation as the central item on the U.S.-Russian agenda. As a result, the Clinton and Yeltsin presidencies stumble toward their final days with diminishing hopes of improving a disappointing seven years of political intimacy and strategic estrangement. Corruption investigations in New York, Switzerland and Moscow have spawned press allegations that threaten to undermine a set of September high-level contacts that once promised to repair the battered strategic relationship.

Anyone else noted similarities for the quarterbacks-of-record with the Kansas City Chief and Kansas Jayhawk football teams? Elvis Grbac of the Chiefs and Zac Wegner of the Jayhawks are big, experienced and are eagerly seeking signature victories after overcoming injuries.

PICKETT LINE
September 5, 1999
Usually when I write about friends in this column I write about people here in Lawrence, people some of you may know. This is about someone I have known since 1927, or 76 years about now. We were living in Preston, Idaho, and I saw these three brothers, all wearing straw hats, walking single file past our house. They were the Roe boys, and I’d get to know all three well, but especially the youngest, Bryce. He and I became friends immediately. We went together all the years through high school, and then a year or more in college, before he left to join the Army. In that time we took all our classes together, a fact that seems amazing today.

HELP FOR VETERANS
September 5, 1999
To the editor: On behalf of all the veterans in care facilities in Kansas, especially those of the Kansas Soldiers Home in Fort Dodge, I would like to express sincere appreciation for the articles written in the Lawrence Journal-World lately, addressing their needs at all levels. Veterans’ budgets have been drastically cut on both the federal and state levels. Therefore, since both the federal and state governments have a surplus, I wonder why some of it hasn’t been directed to our deserving, needy veterans?
