From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 19, 1988:
- Lawrence Postmaster Bill Reynolds said today that he was not yet sure how national cost-cutting efforts would affect the local post office. "We're looking at Saturday service hours and a couple other things we may do that the general public will probably never notice," Reynolds said, adding that his task at this stage was to submit a proposal on how his operations could cut costs, as recently ordered by Congress. His proposal could be approved or altered by postal authorities.
- A new group known as the Lawrence Association of Neighborhoods this week voted to oppose a proposal to pair six elementary schools in the Lawrence district. The LAN organization, formed in the fall of 1987, was made up of representatives from 11 Lawrence neighborhood associations. The group had sent a letter to each of the seven school board members, who were to vote soon on a proposal to pair Pinckney School with Riverside School, New York School with East Heights, and Woodlawn with Grant.
