Corps of Engineers to waive day-use fees at Clinton Lake The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers this weekend will waive day-use fees at its recreation areas in Bloomington Park at Clinton Lake. The corps is joining other federal agencies in waiving such fees at recreation areas nationwide in support of President Bush’s Healthier U.S. Initiative, which emphasizes the role of the nation’s parks and public lands in making Americans’ lives healthier. The beach at Bloomington Park is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Boat ramp access is unrestricted. During the free weekend, the corps encourages people to walk, hike, swim or otherwise enjoy the public land and water to improve their health and fitness. Above, campers wrestle with a tent during their Memorial Day visit at Clinton Lake State Park in 2001. For more information about the corps’ recreation program at Clinton Lake, call 843-7665. __________________ Sesquicentennial Commission: Committee hopes to bring presidential debate to town A committee working to bring a presidential debate to Lawrence in 2004 had its first organizational meeting Wednesday morning.

Among the topics the committee discussed were security issues and the role of local law enforcement, provisions for the influx of visitors to the city and events the committee could plan in coordination with the debates. Once the applications is made, the committee will know by December 2003 whether Lawrence has been selected as a debate city, Hills said. __________________ Courts: Suspect in eavesdropping gets trial continuation Ottawa The trial for a Lawrence man charged with videotaping women in a sports bar restroom was continued to Aug. 20.

Avant-garde exhibit an insult
June 20, 2002
By George Will Washington Post Writers Group An iron law of avant-garde art is that theorizing expands to fill a void of talent. That law explains the execrable exhibit “Mirroring Evil: Nazi Imagery/Recent Art,” now in its final days at the Jewish Museum at the corner of 92nd Street and Fifth Avenue. The works by 13 “internationally recognized” artists make, the museum brochure says, “new and daring use of imagery taken from the Nazi era.” In the cant of artists’ self-puffery, the word “daring” usually means artists are daring to strike political poses that are imbecilic and, among the avant-garde, fashionable. Here the artists daringly draw “unnerving connections between the imagery of the Third Reich and today’s consumer culture.”

Foul is cried among such busy and nattering negativism and so blinded by the sports utility vehicles that one can not see the need to improve and clear cutting some regulations. After all, there can’t be anything good coming from the develo-realtors. Don’t be afraid to contemplate what “real” cooperation might achieve!
