Nick Krug (Photographer)
I've been a staff photographer at the Lawrence Journal-World since the summer of 2005. My love for photojournalism was cultivated in college with long hours spent at the University Daily Kansan. Fresh out of school I spent a year as a contract photographer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch before taking a job as a staffer for the Topeka Capital Journal where I spent the next three years. Although I primarily work with still photography, my duties at the JW include covering news, features and sports with the use of still images, video and audio clips. A few highlights from the last few years have been covering the 2008 NCAA championship run as well as the Orange Bowl victory. I feel fortunate to work with such a knowledgeable and hard-working staff.

- Lawrence jeweler and metalsmith gets national recognition
- September 4, 2016
- The chance of hearing a jeweler talk about the beauty of cement, coal or industrial latex within a conversation about engagement rings is just about as likely as hearing a construction foreman asking for more diamonds, gold or silver in the concrete mix. That being said, Lawrence jeweler and metalsmith Cate Richards, who was recently named to American Craft Week’s list of “30 Exceptional Craftspeople Under the Age of 30,” is garnering some attention for melding what many believe are seemingly incongruous materials into her own fine art.
- Lawrence pool players get second chance at world championship
- August 14, 2016
- In the game of pool, tales of big money games, rough venues and even rougher people roll off the tongue about as often as the balls roll along the green felt. Sometimes the stories even come with a prop, like the left hand of Lawrence resident Noble Lathrom. It features a protruding carpal bone and some fingers that don’t quite lay straight. How it got that way about 50 years ago, Lathrom admits, sounds a bit like a scene from Paul Newman’s famous pool hall movie “The Hustler.”

However, on July 22, one place in town, specifically 1405 Massachusetts, had their heaters going with temperatures hovering between 100 and 110 degrees for over an hour and nobody seemed to mind.

- LOOK: Lawrence’s Call of Doody takes pet-waste removal to the extreme
- May 22, 2016
- It seems fair to say that most career choices are made based on several key factors: The job should pay well, it should allow us to apply our skill sets, it should keep us reasonably happy and certainly, last but not least, it should involve putting up with the least amount of … well, let’s just call it poop. All this being said, most of us would find a job based around pet waste removal to be disproportionally at odds with all of these factors. Not Lawrence resident Dawn Terry, however.
