From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 4, 1987:
- More than a year ago, the Lawrence school board had tabled a motion that had called for moving ninth-graders out of the city's three junior high schools. The idea was coming back to the fore and was scheduled to be considered at tonight's board meeting. The board had voted 4-3 in March 1986 to table a motion that called for planning of middle schools for seventh- and eighth-graders and for moving ninth-graders out of the junior highs.
- The Midwest Weavers Conference was scheduled to begin this week. The event, hosted by the Kansas Alliance of Weavers and Spinners, was expected to draw about 500 participants. As part of the conference, titled "Crossroads '87," exhibits would be free and open to the public in the Art and Design Gallery and the Burge Union at Kansas University.
