<i>According to Bob Schumm's political advertising in the Journal-World, his family is experiencing 166 years of quality living in Douglas County. Where does he get that number?</i>

Bob Schumm, who is seeking the Republican nomination for the 3rd District Douglas County Commission seat, said he added the number of years each family member lived in Douglas County to reach the number in the advertisement. Schumm and his wife both have lived here for 36 years. They have three grown children, one of which, Chris Schumm, still lives in Lawrence. The couple also has one daughter, Marguerite, at home, and she will be a ninth-grader at Southwest Junior High this year.

Is Bill Guthridge of North Carolina a graduate of Kansas State University? If he did attend KSU, did he play basketball there? Was he ever a candidate to become basketball coach there? When did he go to North Carolina as a coach?

Guthridge, a native of Parsons, earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Kansas State in 1960 and a master's degree in education from KSU in 1963.

Guthridge was a guard on the Kansas State teams that won league championships in 1958, 1959 and 1960. He was an assistant coach at his alma mater from 1962 through 1967, then joined Dean Smith's staff at North Carolina. Guthridge was apparently more interested in being an assistant coach at North Carolina he was Smith's aide for three decades than becoming a head coach until Smith retired in 1997.
