From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 29, 1988:
- Nurses had their say today at a special board meeting at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Nursing employees reported low morale, staff shortages, and anger over revocation of extra weekend pay, and board members agreed that they needed to find a solution to the bad feelings resulting from recent administrative actions at LMH.
- A company seeking permission to build a controversial asphalt plant in Kanwaka Township today said they had applied for a permit to widen and maintain two miles of Township Road 120. Frank Hempen, county public works director, said that the company wanted to establish a 20-foot roadbed width and also wanted to lay chemicals on the road to reduce dust.
- A Washington insider said that Senate Republican Leader Bob Dole was planning to withdraw from the presidential race today, three weeks after being buried in George Bush's Super Tuesday landslide. Bush was reported to be far ahead of both Dole and Pat Robertson in the delegate count so far.
