Springfield, Missouri $1.50 Performing arts center opening Friday : W Tr fs SMwWiime On1F An in-depth look at the 2,200-seat high-tech Jua-nita K. Ham-mons Hall for the Performing Arts. By Bil Tatum The News-Leader When the lights go down Friday night and "Fanfare for Brass and Percussion" comes up from the stage at Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing .Arts, emotions may run high for Enoch Morris. -"A lOt Of Pe0- '., -r - pie and not only me are going to be pretty emotional," he said Friday as he began his last weekend of pre-opening preparations at the 2,200-seat high-tech theater at Southwest Missouri State University. ; "This is the weekend I have been working for for three years," he said. "When we open the hall (Friday), it'll be only three days short of the third anniversary of pur moving to Springfield. There's a lot of significance in that for me." - Morris, executive director of the hall since moving to the Ozarks, has seen it through controversy as well as construction. - Funding for the $17.8 million facility owned by SMS has been the subject of intense scrutiny. Questions remain about seven of those millions and whether and when university administrators knew the extra money would be required to complete the building. i Morris would rather talk about the hall's supporters and its future: "Getting the building open has been a long process, sometimes discouraging," he said, "but it's been . such a rewarding experience to work with the hundreds of talented and generous people ... who have given not only their money, but also their time in any way we needed. "It would have been nice if things had been smoother, but I am a person who looks forward and as soon as we get past this week's events, we'll start looking into the future, talking with agents and booking the hall for 1993-94." -j r" - ! f. 7 . ::' r - 4ft C -t ir-i a. . y 4 V 1 5 5 r f .

Changed lifestyles: "It's taken a toll on us," Police Chief Terry Knowles says. "I have, since June 7, kind of re-tooled my lifestyle." Church, jogging and a driving range he escapes to alone are his social life. ; "I personally and with my family have undergone some changes. Not to the point where I'm distraught, that I feel this thing is just driving me into the ground. It's not." But he and his investigators live the case.
