KU journalism professor Guth placed on leave as school reviews comment he made on Twitter on shootings

This article did not include all of Senator Bruce's press release, but Bruce based his call for removal on the precedent set in 2005 with the removal of Paul Mirecki. Someone should probably tell Mirecki about this since he is probably on the KU campus right now since he is still a faculty member. Either that or Senator Bruce should probably check his facts.

Do you drink Kansas wine?

I really like some of the Kansas wines. They often fall into the mix as I go through wines from many states and countries. I am not a fan of sweet wines, and that is not at all a problem with Kansas wines. There are plenty that are dry. If you haven't found any Kansas wine that you like yet, I suggest BlueJacket and especially, my favorite, Holyfield. Holyfield creates a Cynthiana that is incredible.

Citizen survey shows Lawrence streets still a concern, but other areas fare well

Less people were satisfied with city growth planning than with the streets, yet the entire article is only about the city streets. Why is the topic of city growth planning being ignored? Any ideas?

KU seeks approval for $4 million, 9,600 square-foot expansion of Library Annex on west campus

It is not just already half full (half full happened some time ago), but it is nearly all the way full. The annex will be at capacity within a year, not three years.

Concerns mount over new gun law

This is an interesting website, but at first glance I am finding a lot of inconsistencies that make me think that the site is perhaps more than a little skewed and so may not be reporting statistics in the most straight forward fashion. Examples: the site includes cases in California--California does not issue CCHs nor are handguns legal there in any manner; one case includes a 10 year old shooting his brother--in no state is a 10 year old issued a CCH; another case includes a security guard acting in the capacity of his job--security guards carry firearms under other authority, not the CCH permits and laws.

Man arrested downtown after attempted attack with railroad spike

When the law that HEY_FUQ mentioned passed, there was also a change in the zoning rule: state law overrides city ordinance for all concealed carry laws. The 200 ft. law was city ordinance and can no longer be enforced. Also, with the concealed carry in drinking establishments, it is still actually illegal to carry in one, but a concealed carry licensee cannot be prosecuted if there is no sign on the door. Anyway, I believe, but don't know for sure, that Free State sells enough food that they would not likely fall under the drinking establishment category for this law (somewhere between 30-51% food sales).
