Simons' Saturday Column: Focus on sports, athletes has gotten out of whack

Ironic, then, isn't it? When I logged on to the LJWorld mobile website, the overwhelming majority if "top news" stories were sports-focused. You can't push drugs and complain that everyone's an addict.

Rain or shine, pastor’s daily devotion to running carries prayers though Lawrence

Exactly, Dinker.

I too, choose to abide by a different belief system, but I would never be angry if a Christian chose to pray for me, just as I wouldn't be angry if someone I didn't know said "Have a nice day."

Good feelings are good feelings, and we need all we can get, no matter the source or belief.

KU establishes office to handle sexual harassment reports

Shoddy writing. It wasn't a "football scandal." Did the Vice Provost really call it that? If that's what they're saying in this training, the whole program is suspect.

Sears to close Lawrence store

Bummer. I always buy appliances from Sears, I have forever. Now I guess I'll do it online, or go to the one in Ottawa.

I-70 blocked Monday morning after multiple accidents in Leavenworth County

Was in the traffic behind all of this- stopped for quite a while. I had plenty of time to tweet, if I'd been so inclined, as did the dozens of other drivers/passengers in the cars around me who were also stopped.

Vehicles have run off U.S. 59, hit fence on property over 30 times

I drive that road every day, and one thing I've noticed about the new fence- the decorative lights on the gate look an awful lot like headlights if you're headed south. You come up the hill, see the road signs indicating a curve, then you see what appears to be a pair of headlights coming straight for you, on YOUR side of the road.

If I didn't drive that road all the time and know they were the lights on the fence/gate, I'd try to get out of the way.

Just a comment. The new fence looks nice compared to the old one.

First Bell: Former Ichabod’s, up for auction, still ‘smells like a school’; EPA OKs environmental education grant for Friends of the Kaw

I really wanted to buy that when it went on the market a few years ago, but the price (I forget what the total was) was prohibitive. Now I don't have $10K handy like I did then. DRAT.

23rd St. bridge to be replaced

Oddball: Beautiful.
Moriarty: suppose the bridge ain't there?
Oddball: Don't hit me with them negative waves so early in the morning. Think the bridge will be there and it will be there. It's a mother, beautiful bridge, and it's gonna be there. Ok?

Heard on the Hill: KU Parking joins Twitter; Obama's student loan plan generates conversation; Border War headed to Kansas City libraries

I have a question about the "20 years, not 25" part. Twenty years from when? When you first take the loan? When you graduate?
