From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 11, 1987:
- Douglas County reappraisal data collectors, having finally finished the onerous task of gathering information in the Oread neighborhood, were moving on to the Pinckney area of town. The collectors had worked in Oread for nearly two months, asking residents questions about the interior of the homes and taking measurements of the exterior. The task had proven more difficult than expected, as Oread residents often reported details such as room layouts and bedroom counts as being different from the information given by the owners.
- Movies available to theater-goers in Lawrence this week included "Police Academy 4," "Blind Date," "Three for the Road," "Raising Arizona," "Platoon," "Lethal Weapon," and "The Secret of My Success."
