From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 28, 1972:
- Lawrence residents had received a good taste of spring in recent days, but snow was falling at noon today and more was expected overnight. Conditions were cloudy and temperatures were falling as low as the upper 20s, and up to two inches of snow were expected.
- A flock of about 15 geese, described as "snows" and "blues," had settled in Lawrence fields near 23rd and Iowa this week. The seasonal visitors, stopping en route to their northern home after having spent their winter in the south, were prompting delighted comments from nearby residents.
- Adoption of a new electrical code was being considered by Lawrence city commissioners. Other items on the weekly agenda included the paving of 15th Street from Kasold west to Alvamar Heights, construction of sanitary sewers for the 1000 block between Illinois and Mississippi, and the placement of more stop signs at several locations throughout the city.
