DENVER - Appointing a liaison between the University of Colorado athletic department and the president's office may not be a sign that school president Betsy Hoffman has lost confidence in athletic director Dick Tharp, experts say. In fact, the move may help prevent serious NCAA sanctions over what may be determined as a lack of institutional control. NCAA spokeswoman Kay Hawes would not comment specifically on the allegations that have been leveled at the football team, but she indicated the rare move of assigning a liaison, who is expected to be hired this week, is smart.

An old Bennett witch used magic to preserve her body. That's the reason only Bonnie and her mother could open the casket. She drew power from them and the other Bennett witches who were with her “on the other side,” which is where she's been for 1,000 years, being punished for turning her family into vampires.

Les Liaisons Dangereuses is British playwright Christopher Hampton's 1965 dramatization of the Laclos novel published in 1782 describing the French aristocracy's licentious indulgences. Such 18th-century indulgences can be viewed in Colonial Players' current production, at which opera glasses may be useful for a closer view of the Chevalier Danceny au naturel. In two pages of director's notes, Craig Allen Mummey explains that Laclos chronicled the pre-revolutionary libertine behavior of actual members of the aristocracy, noting that "today people still use sex as a weapon, a sport or a religion" much as those 18th-century libertines did. This rococo period was a time when, Mummey says, "manners largely took the place of morals, with adultery nearly a virtue and jealousy uncouth," later adding that "amidst this decadence we find Valmont and Merteuil at the height of their powers as the play begins."

Former Commissioner Perry L. Jones Jr. has asked the Carroll County Ethics Commission for an exemption to the two-year nonemployment rule so he can take a liaison position with the Carroll County Volunteer Emergency Services Association. Jones had been unanimously approved by the association at its June meeting to replace Leon Fleming, who retired June 29 after 10 years as liaison between the firefighters/Emergency Medical Services group and the county government. However, a question arose from the county's ethics policy that states that former employees and officials cannot hold a position with any county agency or organization that receives county funds, for two years, for fear of conflict of interest.
