Screens Story  October 16, 1998, by Jay Hardwig
"...There's plenty here to make you pause, but in the end, the FBI just doesn't come off as nefarious as the CIA -- which is mildly disappointing but perhaps predictable.

TV Eye
Screens Column  October 31, 1997, by Margaret Moser
"...Hallowe'en is a very special day for TV programmers, an excuse to trot out all those Seventies and Eighties slasher films, to show the Hallowe'en episodes of your favorite reruns, or simply consider what the regular schedule offers in a horrifying context ó Live with Regis & Kathie Lee (KXAN; 9am), for example. Gives me the willies just to think about it! Or how about this revolting little statistic: Between WGN and WTBS, you can see Saved by the Bell and Family Matters for four episodes in a row! Every day! That's almost as scary as the two hours of The Dukes of Hazzard (TNT; 5pm, 6pm)..."

State, City Head for a Dogfight Over Mueller
News Story  January 17, 1997, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Bergstrom's old tower is in the background.photograph by Kenny Braun It could if the state pulls out its big stick and condemns Mueller, then buys it for its own use, which it's free to do as long as it pays the city fair market value. (So far, the FAA has said it's "not quite sure" how it feels about this possibility, a caveat that gives city and community leaders the willies.) To this end, the state General Services Commission engaged an independent appraiser to value the airport, coming up with a figure of $18 million..."

"...Places "like" Waterloo would be the other record stores like MusicMania, Cheapo, Donkey, Tower, etc. How about Tekgnar, 503 Coffee Bar, the Blue Theater, Glassy Knoll, Planet K, Amy's, Thundercloud, Oat Willies, Vulcan, Las Manitas, Omeletry, I Luv Video, Texadelphia, Kerbey Lane, Room Service, Jo's Coffee, Magnolia (my list includes over 150 locations)?
