Western's plans to restructure draws in state regulators By JOHN HANNA The Associated Press TOPEKA — Gov. Bill Graves said Wednesday he doesn't plan to take sides as state regulators investigate a planned corporate restructuring of Western Resources. Graves acknowledged meeting with Chairman David Witting and members of Western's board of directors last week at the company's Topeka headquarters. And, he said at a news conference, he considers Wittig — who also is the company's president and chief executive officer — a friend. But the officials did not ask him for any favors and only wanted to show him a planned announcement about an internal company agreement designed to address concerns about the restructuring, Graves said. The Kansas Corporation Commission announced Tuesday it will investigate Western's plan to spin off its electric utilities from its other, unregulated businesses. Graves, who appoints the KCC's three members, said he takes a "macro view." He said he wants to keep jobs in the state but make sure consumers get reliable electricity at reasonable prices. "I've got several dogs in this hunt," he said, "At this point, there is no value to me to in any way appearing to be picking a side." Western provides electricity to about 638,000 customers in eastern Kansas through Its KPL and KQE subsidiaries. Its Westar Industries subsidiary holds Its unregulated Interests, most notably Protection One, a monitored security service. The company announced last fall It plans to sell KPL and KQE to Public Service Co, of New Mexico, Critics, led by the Citizens' Utility Ratepayers Board, eon- tend Western has transferred |2 billion werth of equity from the utilities to Westar and assigned debt from unregulated activities to the utilities, CURB, the state's eonsumer advocacy agency, argues these activities weakened the utlll- • EDUCATION T OVERLAND PARK ^ Daughter of police shooting fatality settles Overland Park to pay Lambert $25,000 for 1993 fatal shooting By The Associated Press OVERLAND PARK - Saying it wanted to avoid the cost of further litigation, Overland Park has reached a $25,000 settlement with the daughter of a man shot to death by one of its police officers. Jennifer Lambert sued in Johnson County District Court last year, alleging her father, Richard Lambert, was fatally shot in November 1993 as he was trying to follow police orders to throw down his gun. The officer who shot him was responding to a disturbance call when he confronted Richard Lambert outside his former wife's duplex. Jennifer Lambert was a minor at the time of the shooting, and the lawsuit was not filed until after she turned 18. The officer, who later left the department, was cleared of any criminal wrongdoing. The Overland Park City Council voted Monday night to approve the settlement. "If we're going to have regulated companies, we're going to have to make sure there's environment in which they can be successful." Gov. BUI Graves ties' financial condition as the KCC is reviewing a proposed $151 million rate increase. Western disputes the claims, saying the utilities have incurred $1.3 billion in debts from operations and the construction of new generators. "The question's out there," Graves said. "It's going to have to be answered." On Tuesday, the commission said it wanted to determine whether the restructuring would affect the utilities' ability to provide safe, efficient service at reasonable rates. "We don't want to have rolling blackouts and the kinds of energy problems affecting places like California," Graves said. "If we're going to have regulated companies, we're going to have to make sure there's environment in which they can be successful." Walker Hendrix, CURB 'S consumer counsel, said he was pleased about the planned investigation and that it appears to be "fairly broad." On Wednesday, Western stockholders became eligible for rights to shares in Westar, In a statement. Western spokeswoman Kim Gronnlnger said the KCC's investigation won't affect the company's offering, which she called "In the best interest of the company and its customers," Last week, Western announced an Internal agreement that Wlttlg said would minimize the restructuring's effects on KPL and KQE, The agreement calls for Westar to use money tVom the offering to pay down the utilities' debt, CURB and some legislators were wary of the agreement, which Graves said he and company officials discussed at their meeting, "Let's just let the KCC and the CURB folks and the Western folks get the details en the ' Graves said. Missouri-Kansas City must replace six deans ByTho Aiioolitod Proii KANSAS CITY, Mo, =^ The University of Missouri-Kansas City Is In the market for six deans. The most recent resignations came fi'om the deans of the School of Medicine, Michael Frledland, and the Bloch School of Business and Public Administration, Al Page. After serving for almost two years, both plan to step down this summer. Frledland is leaving to become associate vice president of health sciences at the University of West Virginia. He will help establish a new Eastern Health Sciences Campus there, while Page plans to return to teaching finance at the University of Mis­ souri-Kansas City, The university also is searching for deans for the schools of education, music, arts and sciences, and interdisciplinary computing and engineering. Chancellor Martha GlUiland arrived at the University of Missouri-Kansas City in April 2000, the school's first permanent chancellor since February 1998, when Eleanor Schwartz resigned after a problem- plagued year. Only five schools on campus have the same dean they had before Gilliland arrived. Gilliland, who came from Tulane University, already has hired a new provost and a new vice chancellor for student affairs. Those positions had been open since before she arrived. ON THE RECORD The agreement did not include any admission of liability on the part of the city or the former officer, city attorney Robert Watson said in a statement. "Due to the costs of further litigation, the city thought it in its best interest to settle the case," Watson said. Jennifer Lambert's attorney, James Kiley, said his client was satisfied with the agreement. Police blotter INJURY CRASH - Tammy L.
