Column: Basketball games lack simple principles
February 23, 2006
Each time I sit through a high school basketball game, I begin to wonder where have the simple fundamentals gone from the game that I know and love.

Misdirected 911 call at issue
February 23, 2006
In the aftermath of Monday’s fire that destroyed the home of Bill and Jane Stotts, the questions of how a minor fire developed into a major one centered around a 911 call that was first dispatched to Lawrence, rather than Baldwin City where the call originated from, and the valuable time lost because of it. The call was made from a Baldwin land line, not a cellular phone, which might have caused confusion. “I started to call with the cell phone, but said, ‘no, this is a 911 call,’” Jane Stotts said Friday. “I told Nathan (her son) to grab the cordless phone to call as we were leaving.” The call was made reporting the fire at 818 Indiana. There are similar addresses in both Lawrence and Baldwin. When the Lawrence Fire Department reached the address there, there was no fire. That’s when dispatch made the second call that it was a Baldwin fire.
