KU broadcaster David Lawrence to open West Lawrence sports restaurant and bar; update on Limestone pizza restaurant downtown

Hmmm. The Legends location originally was opened as a sports bar, Tanners, I think, by Tom Hayes after he was let go as a KU football coach. That spot seems jinxed. Good luck to David Lawrence. Hayes, a good guy and solid coach, is on Bill Snyder's staff at K-State.

Improvements planned for North Lawrence grain elevator, but towers aren't coming down; new schedule for city compost and woodchip sales

Definitely there were grain elevators where city hall now stands, and I believe the foundations or remnants of some can be seen from the walkway between city hall and the parking garage. Across the street from city hall, where the Journal-World production area is, was a decrepit mill facility. When it was razed to prepare the site for J-W presses, an old brick utility tunnel was uncovered. It was an amazing discovery. It was believed it had been used to run lines for power generated at the dam to areas of downtown.

City balks at plan to allow motorists to use credit cards for new downtown parking garage

The parking garage next to KU's Memorial Union is gated, uses a credit-card payment system, and this morning I was surprised that I was charged $1.75 for a shopping excursion that lasted less than 30 minutes.

Simons' Saturday Column: Longtime newsman had a lasting impact on J-W

This is what it must be like to read your own obituary. I need to say that anything I have accomplished has been through the efforts of many people. I have been blessed to have had skilled, smart, wise, hard-working colleagues throughout my career. I'd have accomplished nothing without their assistance. I'll mention just one: The late, extraordinary Dallas Dolan.
The mistakes, though, are all my own.
I am pleased, though, that throughout my tenure, I never once lost my temper or uttered a profanity!! LOL!!!
