Lawrence retail sales numbers up for fifth straight month; church buys former Lawrence Community Theater building

Newspapers have the freedom of the press and can promote any ideas or viewpoints they want as long as they are not libelous. For example, Lawrence used to have a Socialist newspaper 100 years ago called the Progressive Herald. Lawrence also had a Populist newspaper called the Jeffersonian. There was a progressive newspaper at KU called The Dove for years.

Glad the building is going to be a church again. I still haven't been in the new Theatre Lawrence building.

Library seeking partner to open coffee shop in new library space; as weather warms up, downtown events begin to pile up

Z's Espresso could also run it. I have a friend who owns Author's Cafe in the Henderson, NV library (Las Vegas suburb). It took him at least three years before he made a profit. I would enjoy reading a newspaper or book with a cup of coffee in the library, but I already do that at Signs of Life.

Sebelius said to be weighing U.S. Senate bid

No Democrat has been elected in Kansas since the 1930s. She would be better off running for the US House.

Letter: Koch goals

Good job, Graham. I didn't know you were a lifelong Republican. Guess you must be a liberal Republican. Must be a few thousand liberal Republicans left in Kansas.

Name the city’s new rec center

Ad Astra is the best name, though many don't know what it means (Latin for "To the Stars"). Free State Recreation Center may be good as well. How about Koch Industries Ad Astra Recreation Center?

Buffalo Bob's Smokehouse to close after 37 years in business

"Lousy service, lousy food and mounds of greasy fries way more than I could stomach."

Exactly, how did they stay in business that long? I think it became a tradition for visiting alumni and their student children who remembered it from their student days.

Pizza Hut located in downtown Lawrence much earlier than that. It had to be the very early 60s.

I am still surprised that Jefferson's and that Wings place are still in business.

UPDATE: Buffalo Bob's to close at end of month; Ladybird Diner plans to open along Mass. Street in June; city, county hosting Horizon 2020 meetings

Comfort food went away for many, many people, Arnie. That's why there are very few restaurants that serve it any more in Lawrence. Yes, I agree, Matthew, with your assessment of Buffalo Bob's. I never did figure out how it stayed in business that long. Here's a version on that Beatles song: Hey, Buffalo Bob, what did you kill, Buffalo Bob...

Authorities say hate motivated Kansas shooting

Hate crimes are trending downward. They have dropped 29% since 2000. Of course, one hate crime is one too many hate crimes.

Sorry, but that kind of comfort food is so passé and went out in the 1970s. My tastes have evolved since then.
