Koster Funeral Home, 217 Freeman, Oakley 67748, is handling arrangements. Candidates for the Saline County Commission, the State Board of Education and Saline County sheriff answered questions at a local forum Thursday mostly about how much control the boards should have. The forum, sponsored by the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce and the League of Women Voters, was attended by about 25 people. All county commission candidates said they didn't know how expenses could be reduced. They all said the county's roads and bridges needed to be repaired, which costs money, and the county's growth demanded a growing budget. But Deane Allen, 3832 E. Country Club, the Republican candidate for the county commission's 2nd District, did say he thought the 11.5 percent growth in the county's budget was too much. T CELEBRITY "Having been a teacher, it's amazing how we seem to find the money when it's necessary." Chuck Culley Democratic candidate for the 3rd district county commission seat "Having been a teacher, it's amazing how we seem to find the money when it's necessary," said Chuck Culley, 802 Scott, the Democratic candidate for the 3rd District. "I don't know if we could cut expenses, but we could find better uses for the money we do have." The candidates spilt with their opponents on whether they would like to see a joint city-county planning staff. Allen said he would, while his opponent, Dean Seim of Gypsum and the Democratic candidate, said there's "no way he would support that." "I think there are too many problems with the rural county," Seim said. Culley said he could see some benefit in working with the city in development issues, but his Republican opponent, Doug Forsberg, As- saria, said he thought there were too many differences between the city and county to work together. Dennis McClintock, 2219 Kensington, Democratic candidate for sheriff, said it would be difficult to reduce expenses, but he would be open to the idea. However, he also would ask the commission for an increase in additional manpower to help cover the county better. "There have been times I've been out to an area all by myself," said McClintock, who was with the sheriffs office for 10 years before leaving to become a corrections officer. But Glen Kochanowski, 2379 Edward, the Republican candidate for sheriff, said he would make adjustments to get the most from the people already working. "No true administrator is going to say 'I have enough,' " Kochanowski said. "He is always going to want more people." Board of education The candidates for the State Board of Education traded barbs over certain forms of local control. Republican Scott Hill said sex education should be turned over to local control, while Democrat Eloise Lynch said the only thing that would hurt the children is them not having the education. Hill and Lynch also disagreed with how much control parents should have in the schools. Hill said just because children leave home to go to school shouldn't mean that parents shouldn't have a say in how they are taught. "The idea is ludicrous," Hill said. "We need parents to be involved." Lynch said she agreed with that but thought that involvement was better than parents attempting to take control of education. "I would ask my candidate how often he is involved with his children," Lynch said. "How much time does he spend with their education?" Esquire's 'Dream Girl' is just that—a dream By The Associated Press NEW YORK — She's got the requisite tousled blond mane, the pouty lips, the bedroom eyes, the killer body. Allegra Coleman, touted on the cover of the new Esquire as "Hollywood's next dream girl," has it all. There's just one problem: There is no Allegra Coleman. Coleman is a figment of writer Martha Sherrill's imagination — a faux phenomenon created to poke fun at the endless dance between celebrity interviewers and celebrity interviewees, a twisted two-step recorded in scores of glossy magazines (Esquire included). The real joke: The girl behind the bogus starlet, 20-year-old Ali Larter of Cherry Hill, N.J., is now fielding calls about her show business career. Her biggest role so far: Allegra Coleman. Her suitors reportedly include a cable TV network and a well- known Manhattan agent. "When you think it through, it's perfectly logical," said a laughing Edward Kosner, Esquire's editor in chief. "I think she's going to get a little career. Isn't that the ultimate irony?" Perhaps. But then Larter IS quite convincing as Coleman, "the star Quentin Tarantino dumped Mira Sorvino for ... the drop-dead beauty around whom Woody Allen recast his yet-unnamed fall 1997 release," as Esquire contributing editor Sherrill writes. The eight-page spread is a picture-perfect parody, complete with doctored photos of Coleman with boyfriend David Schwimmer of "Friends," with Tarantino at the Golden Globes and with Pauly Shore in a scene from "Jury Duty." Sherrill deftly parodies the breathless, first-person style ordinarily devoted to Gwyneth Pal- trow or Matthew McConaughey: "She complains that she has no friends in Hollywood, yet her press agent gives me a list of twenty- three people to call about Coleman. "I am not allowed to call her family. Especially, I am not allowed to bother her mother, who is in a three-year retreat in the Dordogne, at a Tibetan Buddhist Center." Coleman was hatched while Sherrill was interviewing Steve Martin for a profile tied to his "Sgt. Bilko" movie. Neither was particularly thrilled — Martin was flogging his film; Sherrill was on assignment. They discussed the inherent dopiness of the celebrity profile. Wouldn't it be great, Sherrill thought, to invent your own celebrity? A star was born. The unknown Larter, who's done commercials for Diet Coke and Star- burst, was selected because "she looked almost like someone from 'Melrose Place,'" Kosner said. Larter has already cashed in on her own instant celebrity — an appearance on "Good Morning America," an interview on the local ABC-TV affiliate, a story in Sunday's Times of London. • File photo "Allegra Coleman" is touted as "Hollywood's next dream girl" in the November issue of Esquire. The catch? "Allfgra Coleman" is a fictional "celebrity" portrayed by unknown aBtress Ali Larter. Dole / Did gambling on Perot fail?

FROM PAGE A1 by The Hotline, a political news service, said this week that they expected Clinton to win — every single Democrat and every single Republican, too. But if it is easy to see why Dole felt he had to take action, it is harder to see why he decided to send his campaign manager, Scott Reed, to Dallas to try to persuade the fiercely independent Perot to fold his tent. Perhaps it was the advocacy of Reed, who has a reputation as a political gambler. Sen. Connie Mack of Florida, a staunch Dole backer, was one of the few Republicans who ventured a theory. Without audible fervor, he said, "Any time you can pick up a few points here or there it's worth the effort." Indeed, in Mack's state and in Texas, two of the four biggest states, late polls suggest that if Dole could pick up the votes of all the voters who currently support Perot that might be enough to swing the states into the Republi- can column. Dole leads narrowly in Texas, and Clinton narrowly in Florida; Perot is at about 6 percent in each. But there was no known reason for Dole to expect that Perot would quit the race after having laboriously and expensively won a position on the ballot in all 50 states for his fledgling party. To do so would not only deprive him of the limelight he so enjoys but would doom the Reform Party before it had contested its first election. Perot is faced with the prospect of polling less than 10 percent of the vote Nov. 5, less than half of the 19 percent he took in 1992. But the feisty Texan is not one to shrink from long odds. And despite the disingenuous comment of Elizabeth Dole on television Wednesday night to the effect that the Perots and the Doles were good friends, Perot was infuriated when the Republican nominee sought successfully to have him excluded from this year's presidential debates. He is still angry. Not surprisingly, Perot on Thursday dismissed the effort to get him out of the race as an absurdity that was completely irrelevant to the campaign. Even if Perot, for reasons unknown, had decided to stand aside in Dole's favor, there is no reason to suppose his backers would have followed him, sheep-like, into the Dole camp. They support Perot, after all, because they have already weighed the major-party candidates and found them wanting. And even if Perot had wanted his name off the ballot, in many states he could not have accomplished that. In some the deadline for withdrawal has passed and in others, little short of death can remove a name from the ballot. Finally, there are strategic considerations. A presidential candidate who trails badly entering the final days of a campaign has one supreme task: convincing the electorate that he still has a chance, can still catch up, is still worth supporting. If he cannot do that, many of his backers will stay at home, which is why politicians seldom concede that they are about to lose. What Dole did in dispatching Reed to Dallas makes that job a great deal harder for him, and cannot help others on the Republican ticket. Although some Republicans suggested that Dole had intended to keep the approach a secret and had been victimized by a leak, many more characterized the whole enterprise as a fool's errand and argued that no one could have thought something so startling could be kept quiet at the peak of a campaign. "He didn't quite sign his own death certificate with that little maneuver," said a Republican state chairman in the Midwest, "but he certainly told the whole world how sick his campaign is. I'm sure he did it in good faith. But in this part of the world Dole is 15 points down and Perot has only 5 percent, so it's hard to see what we gain, and our House candidates are in agony."
