City approves partial closure of Massachusetts Street for outdoor movie

Bunch of one-eyed willies need to remove the eye patch and give Goonies a fresh look.

The movie has it all. Friendship. Exploration. Community. Teamwork. Coming of age. Ingenuity. Individual talents/abilities. Parental/family love. Compassion for the disabled. History. Good versus bad. Rich versus poor. A Baby Ruth product placement...

Statehouse Live: Brownback, legislators approve funding that they say will complete Statehouse project

IIRC, the renovations began in 2001 under then Governor Bill Graves, a republican. Not that it matters, of course.

Parts of Lawrence already have super-fast Internet

I dropped Knology Palladium internet in favor of Lawrence Freenet a week ago and I'm happy to report it's been a success so far. I'll be paying closer to $38/mo instead of $60 and there's no discernable difference in internet speed. In fact, most times I've run speedtest, the results have shown Freenet to be superior. (I've posted the most recent Speedtest I ran using my Android phone.) I've seen absolutely no lapses/pauses in my Netflix and Hulu Plus streaming service on my TV.

I must say, it felt good to tell that woman in Atlanta that I wanted to cancel my Knology service. You wanna charge me $10 extra to have internet w/o cable?! Good riddance.

Two Lawrence men arrested after altercation at Sixth and Kasold shopping center

I have it on good authority that the suspected were a Walgreens employee and a Wendy's employee who conspired with an 11 year-old boy running a lemonade stand at a residence behind Westlake hardware. The three, having previously watched the movie Tank Girl while snorting bath salts, became convinced the loss of water was a large-scale plot to deprive Lawrence of lemonade, salt-water taffy and Baconators. The child in his haste to retrieve lemons to freshly squeeze into the eyes of the identified agents of the plot evaded capture and remains at large on his skateboard. Police are warning all residents and box fans not to approach the suspected boy for fear that he'll use his skateboard, or some similarly-sized blunt object, as a weapon. Police also report that the boy's lemonade is delicious.

Knology sale to WOW now official; customers not expected to see immediate changes

Anyone know a cheaper way to get quality internet service in Lawrence without Knology/Wow?

Is Lawrence Freenet relevant/worth anything these days?
