Victoria’s secret
Folk singer regains strength through music while battling multiple sclerosis
July 12, 2001
By Mitchell J. Near Victoria Williams has a voice that comes at the listener unexpectedly. The voice is strong and distinctly Southern, and also a little off-kilter; it’s as though it’s too eccentric and powerful to be emanating from such a petite woman.

A.I. A collaboration between Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg is a pretty bizarre notion — the coldly cerebral director behind “2001” and “A Clockwork Orange” doesn’t even belong in the same sentence as the crowd-pleaser who made “E.T.” and “Jurassic Park.” The two were friends, however, and they worked together for years to bring this science fiction drama to the screen, with Spielberg finally writing and directing based on Kubrick’s notes. The “Pinocchio”-inspired story of a robot child (Haley Joel Osment) searching for humanity, “A.I.” is full of contradictions, but they only serve to make it more interesting. It’s a truly unique, thought-provoking film, and it captures the styles of its two creators in totally unexpected — and fascinating — ways. (PG-13) — LL

Lawrence’s Mediterranean Market & Cafe takes salad bar to exotic new heights

Artist Rachel Freeman adds subliminal ideas to her enigmatic works of art
July 12, 2001
By Mitchell J. Near Rachel Freeman thinks a lot about the processes that go into her collages. She can dissect the time and energy needed to create a piece and the sources from which her images originate. But despite all this contemplation, the thing that most fascinates her and the point she wants viewers to get is that art is also a mystery. It uses subconscious ideas and skills, and because of that, it’s almost impossible to be completely analytical about it.

Video game adaptation ‘Final Fantasy’ is a visual masterpiece despite weak script
July 12, 2001
By Loey Lockerby Video games have come a long way since the days of Pong and Asteroids, when slow-moving, black-and-white blips were considered the height of digital entertainment. Nowadays, they have complicated plots and graphics that make Atari games look as crude as cave paintings, and nearly as old.

The music never stopped
Willie Nelson and Phil Lesh & Friends - Sandstone Amphitheatre - Bonner Springs, Kansas 07/11/2001
July 12, 2001
By Michael Newman Wednesday night an interesting pair of co-headliners shared the stage at Sandstone Amphitheatre. The pairing of Willie Nelson and Phil Lesh (ex-Grateful Dead) and Friends may seem, at first blush, rather unlikely. Certainly there are large portions of each artist’s audience that don’t overlap, and there is little similarity between Nelson’s tightly crafted country and western songs and the loud, exploratory, psychedelic music Lesh delivers. But scratch the surface just slightly, and you’ll find musical brethren.

Traffic: KDOT officials to use study to evaluate SLT noise levels A study of the noise levels along the eastern leg of the South Lawrence Trafficway is getting under way. Mike Rees, chief counsel for the Kansas Department of Transportation, said the department will measure current noise levels along the five possible alignments. He said KDOT officials will pay special attention to residential areas, Baker Wetlands and south of the Wakarusa River. Rees said the department will use the information, combined with traffic numbers, to project future noise levels if the trafficway is completed. If the noise levels are detrimental to the area and wildlife, he said, KDOT may choose to build a berm or plant trees to cut down on the noise level, and it may do so anyway as part of the mitigation package. A bicycle path also could be included if a berm is built, Rees said. The noise study will be included in KDOT’s draft environmental impact statement, which is expected to be released later this year. __________________________ Investigation: Fires blamed on fireworks Errant fireworks caused the Fourth of July fire that destroyed four units at Bradford Square Apartments, Lawrence officials announced Wednesday. “Based on the physical evidence, interviews and the fact that all other sources were ruled out and that fireworks were in use in the area, it’s our determination that fireworks were, in fact, the cause of the fire at 501 Colorado,” Lawrence Fire Marshall Rich Barr said. Seventeen tenants were displaced by the fire. Barr said his office will not recommend filing criminal charges because it’s unclear who ignited the firework that caused the fire. Also, city ordinances do not prohibit fireworks on July 2-4. The building’s owner, Dan Bloom, rural Eudora, said he expects building replacement to cost $350,000 to $400,000. “I’m a big believer in punitiveness,” Bloom said. “If I could go after someone, I would. But in a situation like this, I don’t know who it would be.” Bloom said he’s fully insured. Barr said the State Fire Marshal ruled that a July 2 fire that destroyed a vacant house at 1513 Haskell Ave. also was caused by fireworks. __________________________ Community festival: Oskaloosa celebrates 100 years of history Tonight kicks off a flurry of activities marking the 100th anniversary of the annual Old Settler’s Reunion. The three-day event will take place around Oskaloosa’s town square. The event will include oral history presentations as well as discounted carnival rides, arts and crafts booths, live ragtime music and old-time fiddle songs by an area duo, Kelly and Diana Wertz. __________________________ Car crash blocks Turnpike A car hydroplaned during a Wednesday morning storm on Interstate 70 near Lecompton, causing a three-vehicle accident and blocking traffic in both directions, the Kansas Turnpike Patrol said. James Irwin, Corsicana, Tex., a passenger in a semi-tractor trailer, suffered a back injury and was transported by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. He was in good condition late Wednesday, a hospital spokeswoman said. The accident occurred shortly after 7 a.m. when an eastbound 1999 Chevrolet sedan driven by John C. Hutchens, 24, Topeka, hydroplaned and began spinning, a patrol report said. The Chevrolet and semi-truck, a 1999 Kenworth, collided, causing the Kenworth to crash through concrete median barrier into the westbound lanes, the report said. The Kenworth went into a ditch. It was driven by Donald R. Raymond, 54, Cayuga, Tex., the report said. A westbound 1993 Chrysler sedan was damaged when it was struck by debris, the report said. It was driven by Gilbert L. Hess Jr., 70, Bellevue, Mich. The Kenworth’s trailer, cars and debris blocked multiple lanes in both directions until the scene was cleared about 9:30 a.m., a patrol dispatcher said.
