Sound Off for December 2012
- Sound Off: A friend of mine insists that volleyball is an American game, but I know it to be a French sport whose inventor’s last name was Mintonette and whose first name escapes me. Can anybody confirm this for me?
- Sound Off: Dayne Crist was able to play right away at Kansas after transferring from Notre Dame, and Jordan Webb was able to play right away at Colorado after transferring from Kansas. So why was Jake Heaps required to sit out a year after transferring to Kansas from Brigham Young? It doesn’t seem fair.
- Sound Off: I saw where the city has selected a pair of artists to do the $75,000 Percent for Art project for the Lawrence Public Library expansion. Do either of the artists have any connections to Lawrence?
- Sound Off: This summer, crews from Sunflower Paving were tearing out and replacing curbing along Sixth Street. After they completed their work, tall weeds grew in the bare dirt left behind. Now, it appears that grass seed and straw have been thrown on top, but the weeds remain. Who is responsible for this: the city or Sunflower Paving?
