Lawrence man sentenced to 36 years in prison after retrial of 2006 murder case

Very sad when "another drunken brawl" is a regular occurrence for this man. I am so sorry for the loss to the Begay family.

Town Talk: April 8 target date for Sears closing, but company interested in opening Hometown Sears store; Dick's Sporting Goods in the mix for Sears space; a new ag land real estate firm

Would be GREAT to have a Dick's Sporting Goods in Lawrence.

I think the current Sears store building would be a good size for the sporting good store.

KU officials clear McCollum Hall, say suspect in gun incident is believed to have left campus

I thought McCollum was one of the two situated on the corner(s) of 19th & Naismith.

The Daisy Hill dorms are on Iowa.

I could be mistaken though

Jury finds Pratt man not guilty

How can the defendant claim it was consensual when the woman was unconscience and was unable to consent.

I was always under the impression that if your partner is unconscience or too drunk [or whatever] to make a decision, then it was considered rape.

Savvy student recognizes mystery shopper scam

I'm glad that he was smart enough not to fall for it.

Last week a friend of mine was trying to sell a piece of furniture, she got an email from a guy claiming to be on vacation, but wanted the piece of furniture [priced at $175] to be ready for delivery when he returned.

He said he would send my friend a check for the amount, but on the morning she was supposed to get it, he emailed her and said that his secretary made a mistake and accidentally sent my friend a check for $2600 [he said it was meant to be for the movers]. He asked her to keep out $175 for the furniture and an extra $50 for her trouble and send him a money order or whatever for the balance.

Thankfully she did NOT do it. These people are out there preying on desperate and unsuspecting people. It's horrible!

I'm glad she was smart enough not to fall for this often-tried scam.
