WHY DOES THE POST OFFICE ON 31ST STREET FLY ITS FLAG AT NIGHT AND DURING STORMS?

``It's flown at night because it is a lighted flagpole. If the flagpole was not lighted we would not fly it,'' said Bill Lawrence, assistant Lawrence postmaster.

``As far as bad weather, during severe weather, such as tornadoes or something like that, the flag would be taken down,'' Lawrence said.

The flags are taken down if the weather might damage them, he said.

``The flags are all-weather flags, so we do fly them during rain and snow,'' he said.

Did The Lawrence Public Library meet its goal of 100 people checking books out themselves?

The library exceeded the goal on 3M's Check-it-out Yourself Day. One hundred ninety-nine people used the SelfCheck machine that day.
