NORRIS WANTS THE ROCK IN KU-CSN HOME OPENER TODAY
September 13, 1999
Moran Norris is a selfless sort, which is a good thing since he plays fullback for Kansas University’s football team. Norris, a 6-foot-2, 245-pound junior from Houston, played extensively in all 11 games last season and made every start — six — in which the Jayhawks opened with a fullback.
PROSECUTOR LAW TAKESTOLL
September 13, 1999
If any further proof were needed of the folly and danger of the independent counsel act, the case of former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros demonstrates why this misbegotten piece of legislation deserves the death sentence Congress imposed on it two months ago. Cisneros walked away from the federal courthouse last week after pleading guilty to a single misdemeanor count and paying a $10,000 fine for understating the amount of financial assistance he provided to a former mistress.
AREA FOOTBALL ROUNDUP
September 13, 1999
Eudora High’s football game with Anderson County was delayed 30 minutes by lightning, then the Cardinals struck for 30 second-quarter points in a 44-0 pasting of Anderson County on Friday night. Following a scoreless first quarter, Eudora broke the game open in the second period.

LEE STEVENS HONORED BY LAWRENCE HIGH
September 13, 1999
Lee Stevens can’t remember what he did during the spring of his junior year at Lawrence High. He didn’t play baseball. He knows that. The Lions didn’t have a baseball program until the spring of 1986, Stevens’ senior year.
BALDWIN COMES UP SHORT TO GARDNER-EDGERTON

The Bulldogs dropped a 30-29 decision after trailing 30-13 in the third quarter.
LHS FALLS TO MANHATTAN
September 13, 1999
Lawrence High didn’t gain the redemption it wanted from an embarrassing loss to Manhattan a year ago, but the Lions did save face against the Indians on Friday night at Bishop Stadium. The Lions, who suffered a 30-0 home loss to Manhattan last fall, scored late in the fourth quarter to pull within a touchdown before the Indians maintained possession the final 3:10 to preserve a 20-14 victory.

PERRY-LECOMPTON SHUTS OUT BASEHOR-LINWOOD
September 13, 1999
Perry-Lecompton’s experience showed its importance Friday night in a 34-0 win over Basehor-Linwood. Seniors scored all five of the Kaws’ touchdowns and P-L’s senior defensive front proved too much for the Bobcats. Perry-Lecompton starts 10 seniors on offense and all of its defensive starters are seniors. Basehor-Linwood has only 10 seniors.
ROETHLER TO OVERSEE TRACK AT KANSAS SPEEDWAY

ENDING PAIN RATHER THAN LIFE
September 13, 1999
Dr. Paul Bilder may never become a famous name in the history of end-of-life care at the end of the millennium. Bilder is no Jack Kevorkian, the pathologist who brazenly defied the law and forced the country to deal with assisted suicide. Nor is he Timothy Quill, the internist whose published admission that he helped a terminal patient to die encouraged other doctors out of the closet.
ONLY COLLEGE GRADUATES KEEP UP
September 13, 1999
Secretary of Labor Alexis M. Herman has a slogan for all workers in these times: Be skilled, not stuck. She emphasized to us the other day that, of the 19 million new jobs created during this administration, 1 million were in high-technology fields. The average high-tech job pays 78 percent more than the average non-high-tech job: $53,000 compared to $30,000.
Credit cards can be tempting, tricky for youngsters
September 13, 1999
Credit cards can lure naive young people into a heap of financial trouble. There is a lot of talk about “carding” young people today in the fabric of a society that sees too much under-age drinking. And as long as the law says one should be 21 or older to be allowed to purchase spirits and imbibe, it should be strictly enforced, particularly where there are fake identifications to help the miscreants.

LAW HINTS AT INSURANCE SOLUTION
September 13, 1999
The Law of Unintended Consequences is at play on Capitol Hill, and your health insurance is on the line. The story is fascinating; the possible result surprising. Last year, the insurance lobby spent $77 million in campaign donations and lobbying expenditures — besting for the first time the enormous money flow of the giant pharmaceutical industry. They want you to know that the new managed-care reform ideas — specifically the Patients Bill of Rights coming from the White House and bills pending in Congress — are un-American.
S PATTERSON PREFERS EARTHQUAKES
September 13, 1999
Like millions of others in the sprawling Los Angeles megalopolis, Eric Patterson was asleep when the Northridge earthquake struck. It was 4:31 a.m., Pacific time, on Jan. 17, 1994, and a tremor that measured 6.7 on the Richter scale hit one mile south-southwest of Northridge in the San Fernando Valley.

ERA MAKES MOCKERY OF RATIFICATION PROCESS
September 13, 1999
The Equal Rights Amendment lingers on, its pulse faint but its supporters determined. Their slender hopes arise from recent disrespect for the amending process. First introduced in Congress in 1923, the ERA says: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” In 1971, the year before Title IX prohibited sexual discrimination in education, the Supreme Court for the first time cited the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment to invalidate a law on the ground that it involved discrimination on the basis of sex. In spite of this evidence that the ERA might be a legal redundancy (ERA supporters said it was needed to “put women into the Constitution”), in 1972 it sailed through the House (354-24) and the Senate (84-8), and on March 22 it went to the states to be ratified or rejected by March 22, 1979.

This lovely, outgoing young lady has a lot going for her. Thirteen-year-old Mariel is very much a typical young teen. She loves to shop, and she talks freely about the latest styles and music.
SHERIFF SOUND OFF
September 13, 1999
I’m curious as to why the Douglas County sheriff’s vehicles on certain occasions the past few weeks have been parked on the green space on Rhode Island Street behind the Judicial and Law Enforcement Center? Douglas County Sheriff Loren Anderson said the vehicles were put in the vacant lots temporarily because they are being traded in for new cruisers. The auto dealers bidding on the contract needed them in a separate location so they could determine their trade-in value. However, more law enforcement cars will be parked there over the next three weeks because the construction of a new tower will take away spaces in the law enforcement center parking lot.
SEPT11 25 YEARS AGO
September 13, 1999
Representatives of Kansas University and about 400 KU service and maintenance employees initialed the last two articles of a proposed labor contract with the university. James Feldstein was the KU labor relations negotiator. A new committe of Lawrence School District 497 administrators was to be formed to hear appeals relating to the placement of special education students for “mainstreaming” in the various schools here.
SEPT11 40 YEARS AGO
September 13, 1999
Motor vehicle accidents and their attendant expenses cost Lawrence residents more than $1 million the past year, a record figure for the community, according to the National Safety Council. Four-year-old Joh Gaines of Richland had survived radical surgery for a heart condition and had a massive “cupid bow” scar across his chest to show for it. He appeared to be recovering satisfactorily. He had three sisters.

OLD HOME TOWN 100 YEARS AGO
September 13, 1999
On Sept. 11, 1899, the Lawrence World stated: “So long as the Filipino rebels persist in making our benevolence take the form of conquest they must expect to be killed. Let them lay down their arms and they will be as happy as the Cubans. The real difference between the government of Cuba and the Philippine islands lies in the people themselves. The Cubans had fought so long that they welcomed peace and appreciated our good offices. The Filipinos accepted freedom at our hands and then began murdering their benefactors.”
SCOUT VOLUNTEERS
September 13, 1999
To the editor: As I read about the increased school security around the area and hear about school violence, I am reminded about how important it is for adults to be involved with the positive development of children. As a concerned adult, I volunteer with Girl Scouts. When asked why, the answer is easy to give.
CASAGRANDE LETTER
September 13, 1999
To the editor: I would like to add to Tressa Hall’s letter “Hungry Children” (“Public Forum” 9/5/99). Recent news items suggest an increase in people accessing food pantries and food kitchens. At LINK (Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen), Jean Ann Pike, LINK coordinator, has reported an increase in the number of families with young children and in elderly guests. LINK only serves four days a week so there are probably people going hungry in Lawrence. In July and August, 1999, LINK served over 400 more guests than it did in the same months in 1998. If this trend continues, LINK will serve over 3,000 more people in the next fiscal year. LINK, a non-profit, community based organization, relies on the generosity of people in our community who care about those who need to be fed. Space and utilities for the kitchen are provided by First Christian Church; food is donated and served by local religious and service organizations and Dillons; and donations from local churches, individuals and a FEMA grant help with consumable supplies.
