Annual sidewalk sale today Shopaholics and bargain hunters wanted: The annual Lawrence sidewalk sale is from sunup to sundown today. Nearly 200 businesses and nonprofit organizations will participate along Massachusetts Street and near downtown. Downtown Lawrence Inc. expects a throng of 30,000 shoppers on the streets as merchants slash prices on inventories. __________________________ Lawrence is growing: Economic development focus of ‘Common Ground’ forum Economic development in Lawrence and the policies that guide it will be up for community discussion Monday. The topics will be debated at the third in a series of community meetings organized as part of The World Company’s “Lawrence is Growing: Finding Common Ground” project. The meeting is at 7 p.m. at the Lawrence Visitor Information Center, 402 N. Second St. The series of summerlong discussions will lead to a final report to be presented in September to Lawrence and Douglas County officials. A television panel discussion preceding the forum will airs at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on Sunflower Broadband Channel Six. If you can’t attend Monday’s meeting, you may contribute comments via e-mail or phone. Send e-mail to ask@ljworld.com or call 832-7290. __________________________ Utility bills: Salvation Army assisting with gas refund applications Lawrence residents seeking relief from last winter’s high heating bills can apply for help at the Salvation Army. Thousands of Kansans still owe millions of dollars on their winter heating bills. For example, a spokesman for Kansas Gas Service Co. said 57,000 of its 630,000 customers 9 percent, or one in every 11 are behind in their bills. The Kansas Corporation Commission has ordered distribution of more than $37 million in relief to eligible Kansas natural gas customers. Those eligible can earn as much as three times the poverty level; $25,770 for a single person, $52,590 for a family of four. Lawrence residents who apply for aid must have been customers of Utilicorp between November and March and cannot have changed residences since that time. Applications in Lawrence for the relief payments are available at The Salvation Army, 946 N.H. Call 843-4188 for more information. __________________________ Baldwin: Event features art, ice cream Works by area artists aren’t the only features at this month’s Baldwin Art Walk from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday.
