alm 77: i was coming home from 'grandbaby duty' about 1 a.m., and saw this vehicle and the emergency personnel. They were blocking my turn southbound onto Wakarusa. The vehicle did not land facing N on the E side of Wakarusa, it was facing S on the W side of Wak.

Civil suit hits Collins for $75K

Seems to be quite a bit of blaming the victim here. Why do you people think victims of attack don't come forward? What Collins did to her is sexual assualt, period. I've worked with victims for years, and am very familiar with the trauma they experience. The way they get blasted for reporting the crime is rape all over again.She did report the crime. Since no criminal charges have been filed against the man, her recourse was civil court. Doesn't mean she's money hungry, means she wants justice. Good for her!!!As for the judgement: if you're served notice of a lawsuit and don't show up, you risk judgement by default. Maybe he chose not to show up because he knows he's guilty and just didn't want it exposed in court. (no pun intended)

Anticipating a rail travel resurgence, organization wants to fast-track repairs

LOL... I've been in Lawrence 17 years and didn't even know there was a passenger depot!I'd love to take a trip by rail. In 1966-ish I travelled with my mother and 3 siblings (all of us under 7) from Rochester, Minnesota to Merced, California. Great memories for me, though I know it had to be stressful for my mother!
