Karnitz caps career with dazzling 800s
May 31, 2007
De Soto’s Lauren Karnitz stared neither straight ahead at the path in front of her, nor down at the rapidly approaching finish line. As she capped off a furious 800-meter race Saturday at the state track meet, as she brought a close to her senior season and took her final steps on the track as a prep competitor, her eyes were intently focused on the timing board that sat at the end of Wichita’s Cessna Stadium.
Big leap
May 31, 2007
De Soto junior Andre Linzy leaned over the event supervisor and studied the numbers carefully. He already knew he was in line for a banner day — how good, he was quickly finding out. Finally, everything computed, lined up and double checked, a wide smile split his face and he stepped back and delivered the news. He held up two fingers, second place in the long jump. On cue, the De Soto coaches, athletes and fans gathered to watch him roared loud.

State’s wonders start with a glass of lemonade
May 31, 2007
Recently, the Kansas Sampler Foundation solicited nominations for the eight wonders of Kansas. If you’re counting, that is one more than the granddaddy of such lists, the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, which included such things as the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The Temple of Artemis at Epheus, the statue of Zeus at Olympia and a couple of other impressive things one would expect from a list compiled by some long-dead Greek. Maybe there is an eighth Kansas wonder in case one of seven is unable — for whatever reason — to complete its reign because it topples to the ground like so many of the ancient wonders.
