Chiefs suffer stunning 45-44 playoff loss at Indy
January 4, 2014
Andy Reid was almost speechless. He couldn’t explain how the Chiefs’ defense blew a 28-point lead or why Kansas City’s offense could only generate two field goals in the final 28½ minutes. He didn’t bother to reflect on how a promising 9-0 start turned into yet another first-game playoff exit for the Chiefs. And he didn’t dare try to put a bitter 45-44 wild-card loss into historical context.

Most of the state is expected to experience a frigid mix of sub-zero temperatures and wind gusts of up to 25 mph Sunday and Monday, according to the National Weather Service. As Lawrence residents prepare themselves for this “Arctic outbreak,” they are urged not to forget their four-legged family members. “They can get Hypothermia, frostbite, the same things we are at risk for, no matter what breed they are,” said Wendy Rawley, a veterinarian technician at Lawrence Veterinary Hospital. “With the cold weather we’re going to have the next two or three days, dogs should not be left outside or unattended.” By Nikki Wentling

Letter: Shelter help
January 4, 2014
It seems to me the Lawrence Community Shelter is going to always be asking for help with needs they have. The city needs to stop before it gets out of hand. When you buy property isn’t an inspection required? They need a roof in less than a year from purchase. They have grown and say they are already overcrowded.
Letter: Faulty basis
January 4, 2014
John Hanna’s article in Saturday’s LJW “Voter citizenship law facing new scrutiny” closes with the statement of the foundation for the entire nationally hyped Kris Kobach crusade against voter fraud. The foundation rests on the fact that “During a December federal court hearing, he (Kobach) said his office had found the names of 20 noncitizens out of the about 1.7 million registered voters on the state’s voter rolls.” This is the basis for causing several years of expense, frustration, confusion and discouragement from the level of state government through county government to individual citizens.
