FSHS girls shock Olathe South, 48-39

I believe that this is the Free State girls first victory over Olathe South in history. Overtime in 2001, but all previous games have been losses..

Boys soccer City Showdown postponed, rescheduled for Monday

Historically, the JW has never reported on soccer JV or C games unless it is simply a score line along with the general sports news. Yes, it would be nice, but it isn't going to happen.

Muhammad Ali, who riveted the world as 'The Greatest,' dies

When I lived and worked in Central America many years ago, few people knew who President Nixon was, but all knew of Muhammad Ali. Few would have recognized him as Cassius Clay, but to the World, he was the symbol of the US. Brash, boastful, willing to undertake a challenge and be successful, he was what the Third World thought Americans were naturally like.

I was slow coming to that opinion as I thought of him as Clay and draft resister during my youth. But, to the World, he was what they saw as being good about the US. Yes, I meant "good" and "great". Over the years, as he became more of a humanitarian and celebrity than a boxer, then challenged by Parkinson's, I realized what the developing world saw.

Rather than having him become tamer or less toxic to the dominant US culture, the World and US changed. Might I say, "the mountain came to Muhammad" rather than the reverse.

Lawrence City Commission will be asked to support funding for proposed $20 million transit hub on KU campus

I am for the concept. I've seen it work wonderfully in Europe where all forms of transport come together at a specific spot. Granted, Lawrence doesn't have a "subway" or the population density of these communities, but by having food shops, offices and other vendors, it would heighten interest and focus ridership to a specific location. Then, I would assume that routes would expand outward like spokes on a wheel and do a better job of allowing ridership to get to their destination.

And, yes, I have used the bus. I'd like to leave my car parked more often. With this concept, I'd try to ride more often.

State warns Sedgwick County not to ask citizenship status of participants in federal program

Never should Costa Rica be lumped together with the rest of Central America. Yes, Costa Ricans come to the US to visit, but not illegally. Costa Rica has a problem with an American invasion of tourists and retirees.

And, they are very supportive of the US, except in the game of soccer.

Kansas among several states looking to ban sanctuary cities

And Lawrence would be even more of a better place than the rest of the Red Sea which surrounds it.

LHS, FSHS girls set for tough tourneys

Actually, Free State girls have played Wichita South in the first round of the State Tournament at Emporia around a decade ago. I'm certain that was a game which Coach Duncan would want to forget. Don't believe Free State has ever played Derby and Great Bend in the past.
