October 24, 1992
Bristling with two weeks’ worth of crime-fighting knowledge, graduates of the Lawrence Police Department’s latest training academy burst onto the city’s mean streets Friday. But wait.

LIONS STUFF
October 24, 1992
Lawrence High seemed to have a sure-fire cure for homecomingitis: Take two halves of Leavenworth and call the Sunflower League trophy engraver in the morning. Trouble was, the Pioneers insisted on being a bitter pill. At first, that is.
