In the news today...
• While purple isn’t exactly a welcome hue in Lawrence, the Washington Creek Lavender farm is filled with almost 5,000 plants just that color.
• Less spending and a flat mill levy compared with last year. That’s where the Douglas County Commission will start its 2010 budget discussions next week.
• The rain last week turned to a summer heat wave, but that hasn’t deterred work on the new high school athletic fields.
And in sports...
• KU’s Cole Aldrich and Sherron Collins could have been part of tonight's NBA Draft, but they elected to return to KU for their junior and senior seasons, respectively.
