Baker Wetlands manager dismantles boardwalk he built as a boy scout
July 22, 2013
If you followed the sounds of drilling and pounding hammers near the north entrance to the Baker Wetlands on Monday, you’d quickly come upon the source of the noise. Jon Boyd, his father, Roger, and several others were dismantling one of the complex’s two boardwalks, which is being removed to make way for construction of the South Lawrence Trafficway. For Jon Boyd, refuge manager of the Baker Wetlands, the monthlong process of breaking down the 850-foot walkway, board by board, is almost bittersweet. That’s because Boyd planned and built most of the boardwalk to earn the rank of Eagle Scout at the unusually young age of 13.By Nikki Wentling
New car-sharing program available downtown
July 18, 2013
Thanks to a new car-sharing program in downtown Lawrence, residents now have a new option for getting around without using their own vehicle. The silver Kia Optima now stationed in the city parking lot on the west side of New Hampshire Street near Eighth Street is available for any resident to reserve and drive at an hourly rate, through a program run by the Hertz car rental company.

Bus hub move doesn’t greatly affect riders
July 17, 2013
Today was the first day for the Lawrence Transit’s transportation hub to operate on the 700 block of Vermont Street instead of at it’s former New Hampshire street location. Despite some concerns from riders about a need for benches and shelters to be installed at the Vermont Street hub, most passengers were pleased with the way the City informed riders of the move.
