U.S. Postal Service to cut Saturday mail delivery to trim costs

For those same pennies, letters and packages follow people who move for a year, if they file COA forms — at no extra cost. The private delivery companies don't do that. The PO also doesn't leave packages on your porch when you're on vacation (if you've asked for a hold, and yes they sometimes mess up).

Solar panels on the roofs of downtown Lawrence buildings ready to start cranking out electricity

It's not hard to find this - this is from Wikipedia;
"Compared to general-service incandescent lamps giving the same amount of visible light, CFLs use one-fifth to one-third the electric power, and last eight to fifteen times longer.
Like all fluorescent lamps, CFLs contain mercury, which complicates their disposal."

Note: LIKE ALL - fluorescents have always contained mercury - it's integral in how they work - and the newer ones have less than the ones we sat under in grade school.
