WHMtfSDAY'S DRAWiHa CASH 4 LIFE 9-29-78-82 POWERBALL 4-9-30-34-48 POWERBALL 8 Estimated Jackpot $195 million DAILY PICK 3 KANSAS CASH not available because of technical difficulties at the Kansas Lottery headquarters Foreman said this is not a typi-i cal complaint for the commission.; "Most complaints are much simpler. Obviously, this is going to be! difficult. It involves contracts; It involves an industry that is real important to our state," she said. L. Christian Hauck, president and chief operating officer of Sunflower, said there were rumors a complaint was to be filed, but he had not seen a copy of the petition by late Wednesday. "Until we see the complaint, I'm not sure of what path we're going, to be on," he said. ,, ; Hauck said Sunflower officials! have tried to be sensitive to the; economic hardships in the oil; patch in recent years. He said the. cooperative, with the assistance of; the corporation commission, set-; tied on a special rate, but crude oil! prices rebounded for a time and; the rate expired without being used. "We're certainly open to any; ideas the oil companies might- have about how we can help them economically," Hauck said. "Oil and agriculture are the economic engines that run everything out here." Criticism of Sunflower goes back to construction in the early 1980s of a $460 million coal-fifed plant at Holcomb in south w'efst' Kansas. The project saddled the Hays utility with excess power.! and millions of dollars of federally- guaranteed debt. Several years ago, creditors were forced to .restructure Sunflower's debt to save the cooperative from bankruptcy, Vess and others say the compa . ny still would be insolvent without the rates it is allowed tb charge its captive customers. "Sunflower will become competitive one way or another," he said."Either the RUS (federal Rural Utilities Service) will write the debt down or RUS will force the sale of Sunflower's assets." Hauck said Sunflower already has started preliminary discussion with Rural Utilities Service,which assumed the duties of the old Rural Electrification Adminis-' tration, about further debt restructuring. , "; He said the present farm bill allows the federal agency to settle debt with cooperatives having trouble in today's more competitive world. Hauck said Sunflower officials think they can make a case for another debt plan. T CHEATING Cheating abounds on job tests By Governing Magazine You might say it was a bad hair day for the Louisiana State Board of Cosmetology. Unbeknownst to about 100 aspiring cosmetologists, an auditor from the state inspector general's office was monitoring the written portion of their May 1996 manicurists' exam. What the observer saw was not pretty. Some of the test-takers, it turned out, were passing answers back and forth through elaborate hand signals. The rest weren't even going to that much trouble: They were flagrantly copying answers from their classmates. No one was being disciplined. Nor was there reason to expect that anybody would be. As the state inspector general later pointed out, it was relatively common at this agency for "cheat sheets" to be found in the testing room after one of the exams was over. And Louisiana, it turns out, has problems with its job testing system that go beyond the brazen exploits of a few conniving cosmetologists. Last summer, about 20 different exams were stolen from a testing center, and civil service tests for all state jobs had to be halted until new ones could be developed. Then, a month later, the New York Times reported that the exams given to aspiring school principals in the state were also tainted. It would be tempting to write all this off as one more demonstration of lax Louisiana ethics — if it were happening only in Louisiana. It isn't. Recent reports of cheating in a variety of public-sector exams make it clear that hiring and promotion tests in state and local governments across the country aren't exactly fortresses of merit system incorruptibility.
