Congratulation Kari, from Lecompton Fire Rescue. We have run many calls out here with you on west US 40 over the last 30 years.

Driver seriously injured in accident northwest of Lawrence

Wear your seat belts. If she had she would of walked away from it. Air bags don't do any good unless your in front of them.

Tornado-siren decision is supported

The tornado in Douglas Co was 8 miles due west of 6 th and Wakarusa drive at 200 rd and 1600 rd, west of stull and was traveling north east. If anything Lecompton should of been alarmed. We can change the rules so that the alarm is sounded with Thunderstorms with winds of 50 mph or more. The problem with the weather radios is they can only alarm the whole county, so people in baldwin would get the take cover alarm and the storm is 25 miles away.

Commission to consider annexation that would allow new business park

I would like to see it stay in Lecompton township. We can need the tax money. The township can't handle more tax lost and still stay afloat. Lawrence just keep chipping away and soon taxes will go up in the township just to make ends meet.

Firefighters acclaimed; fire trucks bemoaned

Sorry Marion I have to call you on that CAT you picked for a Firetruck. You don't want a 1100 hp engine in a small truck like that, most firetrucks have 300 to 425 hp engines. You couldn't drive it on Lawrence streets that thing would be 50,000 lbs.
As for running med calls with Quints it's better to run a diesel that let it set. The Quint gets better fuel mileage than a SUV.

BBQ 'joint' to replace icon

Don's was good about 15 years ago, we used to go there for the turkey fries. Don Scott had the steakhouse in Richland on Stubbs road south of Topeka. The Topeka Steakhouse was owned by another Don and his wife Red, I don't remember there last names but the died about 10 years ago. The Sirloin was a real good steak but they closed about 30 years ago. In Lawrence, longhorn is the best quality steak and chicken you can get but that's not saying much. As a retired restaurant owner I eaten at a lot of places, Pachamama's and Tellers charge too much for what you get. Now Lawrence does have good sandwich shops but you have to leave Lawrence to find something real good, BBQ = guys and Mays Williamsburg or Pizza Parlor Topeka, Bryants is too dry for me. Seafood you have to go to KC = The Lobster Pot but it will cost you $75 per person, they fly that in daily. Steak you have to go west of Topeka to Puffy's in Maple hill, or the Golden Ox in KC. Chicken = The Brookville in Abilene, or Chicken Mary's in Pittsburgh. Mexican = Pepe & Chela's in Topeka. I don't care for italian or Chinese so I'm not a good judge of that. Hamburgers = Seabrook tavern Topeka, that thing is 3 lbs. Home style dinner Mclouth cafe.

Lawrence, The Way We Remember It

Taco Grande was on 23rd st before it was on 9th. It was where Subway is today. Happy Hal's was out on K10 right next to Deems John Deere, old style surf and turf.
