We love our history in Lawrence, whether it be Quantrill's Raid, Wilt Chamberlain, the Kansas Union fire, the making of "The Day After" or the 1988 basketball championship.
But a community is more than the sum of its most dramatic events. A community is created every day in the work, play and life of all its residents.
That's why the Journal-World and 6News undertook "24 Hours in Lawrence" - to go beyond our daily reporting to focus on the stories about how we live. Reporters, editors and photographers fanned out across the city from midnight to midnight on May 10, 2007.
And you helped. We received dozens and dozens of photos, videos and blog entries about how you spent the day.
The report is a living, multimedia time capsule.
24 hours: Midnight to 6 a.m.
Lawrence is home to 90,335 people. All have a story to tell about their day.
The Journal-World spent 24 hours on Thursday, May 10, with four of those people. Their stories will be told over four, six-hour blocks, starting with the hours of midnight to 6 a.m.
The four are: ¢ Police officer Michael McLaren.¢ Working mother Kirsten Krug.¢ School counselor Harold Nelson.¢ Baseball coach Brad Stoll.
