Turnpike seeks roundabout ‘great ideas’
November 16, 2008 in print edition on 1A
Attention, city, county and KU leaders: The Kansas Turnpike has a deal for you. As pillars of the community, you have the opportunity to select something - anything, really - to go into the middle of two of the newest, highest-visibility roundabouts this side of the Chi Omega Fountain: one soon to open at exit 202, which feeds onto Iowa Street and toward the main entrance to Kansas University and another to be built in 2010 at exit 204, which empties into North Lawrence.

Larry Sinks, owner of JoeCollege.com, is pictured in front of his store Thursday, Nov. 13, 2008. Sinks has been in and out of the news because of his legal battles with Kansas University over licensing issues involving his t-shirts. Meet Joe College

Lawrence T-shirt entrepreneur Larry Sinks may live forever through the phrase Muck Fizzou - the borderline profane motto of Tiger-haters the world over that first rolled off Sinks’ tongue in the early 1980s. But Sinks is not taking any chances on immortality. That’s one of the few chances he won’t take. “My saying is that everybody dies, but only a few people live,” Sinks says from the backroom of his Joe College.com store in downtown Lawrence.

A scene  from "The Day After" shows a nuclear bomb's explosion in Kansas City. Nuclear reaction: Cast, crew of ‘The Day After’ reunite for 25th anniversary of film shot in Lawrence, KC

Twenty-five years ago, terrorism was a footnote, the economy was thriving, and America was overwhelmingly comfortable with its current president. Still, a sense of fear and impending doom blanketed the nation due to the escalating nuclear arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union. So when a TV movie aired Nov. 20, 1983, the program became one of the most watched and controversial events of the decade.

Margo Gordon, 87, was a caregiver for her husband Bill, in photo at left,  for about two years before he died in 1990. It took Gordon six months to move on and become active in life again. Caregivers may find adjustment hard once loved one dies

Margaret “Margo” Gordon, 87, smiles as she looks at a large black-and-white photo of her late husband that is framed and sitting on top of her television. He is wearing a bow tie and a grin. It’s her favorite picture of him. She says she frequently talks to him.

Kansas guard Tyrel Reed charges up the court during warmups before tipoff against UMKC Sunday, Nov. 16, 2008 at Allen Fieldhouse. FINAL: KU defeats UMKC, 71-56
6:37 p.m., November 16, 2008 Updated 11:43 p.m.
FINAL, KU wins 71-56. Releford shows a smooth move in the lane, taking a couple dribbles before gliding to the rim for a finger roll. He also picked up a steal on the previous UMKC possession. Aldrich gets on the floor to help KU corral an offensive board, and he gets rewarded a few seconds later, getting an entry pass and drop-stepping for a thunder dunk. Suddenly, KU’s lead is up to 71-52. UMKC hits two more meaningless baskets, and KU comes away with a 71-56 victory to open the year.
