KU’s victory in ‘78 ignominious for UCLA
September 5, 2001
By Chuck Woodling A semi-intense search of the 2001 UCLA football media guide failed to produce the sub-category for which I was searching. Nowhere could I find the “Most Ignominious Defeats in School History,” or even a more euphemistic, “Games Best Forgotten.” No football team has ever won every game it was supposed to win, yet some unexpected defeats hurt more than others and I doubt if UCLA ever suffered a more disappointing loss than on Sept. 23, 1978.

Don’t wait till spring to prepare garden
End of vegetable season an ideal time to cut down plants, clean up plots and till that soil
September 5, 2001
By Gwyn Mellinger At the end of the gardening season, when the vegetable plants stop producing and the foliage begins to die, it’s time to tidy up for winter. You can, of course, simply walk away and leave your vegetable garden until spring. I’d be lying if I claimed I had never done that. However, if you can spare a couple of hours now, you will save yourself even more work in the spring, when the ground will be harder to till and you may even have to burn off the dead stuff that’s still standing.

The foundation announced this summer it would give the center another $3 million for facilities and $1 million toward programs. A committee is deciding whether to refurbish the existing building or construct a new one. “We started as a smaller unit 25 years ago, and we had many of the same goals, just on a smaller scale,” Executive Director Janet Crow said. __________________________ Leisure: Arts and crafts festival scheduled Sunday in park The 22nd Annual Fall Arts and Crafts Festival will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday in South Park, 1131 Mass.
