Yugoslavia faces challenges
October 14, 2000
By Philip Terzian, associate editor of the Providence Journal The civil uprising that compelled Slobodan Milosevic to abandon the office he had already lost reminded me of the fable about the wind and the sun. Observing a man wearing an overcoat, they vie to force the coat off the man’s back. The wind howls and blows, rages and screams to exhaustion; but the man clutches the overcoat tighter around himself. Then it’s the sun’s turn.

Board of education must weigh pedestrian concerns against traffic-calming benefits
October 14, 2000

The safety of students walking to and from elementary schools, a junior high and a high school along a 14-block stretch is the board’s primary concern. Much of the board’s distress is prompted by images of Lawrence High School students traversing the intersection at 19th and Louisiana streets in heavy traffic if the traffic light comes out and a roundabout goes in.

October 14, 2000

An adoring overflow throng of more than 16,300 fans thanked Williams for declining an offer to coach at his alma mater, North Carolina, by giving him a thunderous ovation when he walked out the northwest tunnel at 10:05 p.m.

Terrorism unites U.S. leaders but raises campaign issues
October 14, 2000
Whenever this country becomes the target of terrorism or a military action, the nation and its leaders are quick to unite and speak with one voice.
