But where come the leaders? Every year we read a bunch of names but no leaders emerge. I have been asking for quite some time, name 5 leaders in the city of Lawrence. Name 5 persons who are resspected, who can engage themselves in conversation with the neighborhood groups, especiall the ONA, the Obnoxious Neighborhood Association, LAN, wherever, so far no one has been able to come up with anyone.I am thinking now that Corbett Collins is the closest and I wonder if he ever took "leadership Lawrence" . This is just a Chamber membership activity and has nothing really to do with the betterment of Lawrence. It is kinda like a ritual like the Masons have or Eastern Star. A club, if you will. I wish they would have a parade of the leaders with clown cars and motorcycles. I miss that parade downtown.

A followship we go. This is not news, this is advertising. Avoid those businesses who are so over staffed they do not need their employees.
