Teller's restaurant to change name and concept to Merchants Pub & Plate

Another Freestate point, one would think you'd want to be one of those 30 taps. I know I would as a brewery, some breweries have guest taps from time to time.
Wait and see what beers are there, if Freestate doesn't want to be poured there that's a odd elitist decision.

Teller's restaurant to change name and concept to Merchants Pub & Plate

A "new concept " it is not, but a change of scenery for Lawrence. There are many places like this in KC, giving good options in drink and food. Of course parking downtown can be a hassle.
Not sure exactly why a lot of folks are rushing to defend Freestate. Freestate is a brewery, not a gastropub, the food is OK, and on occasion the beer selection is decent. Last time I checked they weren't in any jeopardy of closing the doors.

Team first: Seabury boys' success hinges on role players

Way to support local. Private, or public any school in Lawrence should have local support.

USPS consolidating 7 mail processing centers

No, the internet is killing jobs. How often do you write a check to pay a bill, or write a letter to memaw. Get real the USPS is overrated. We wont need to worry about employee's going "postal" much longer now will we.

City moves Auto Plaza project forward

SOOOOO, if Briggs gets to put up a windmill like KU did over on west campus, and Zarco has a wind turbine on 9th, when do residents get the option? I just think if everyone can stick up a dish in the yard or on the side of the house for tv, I should be abel to have a wind turbine or windmill.

Town Talk: Esquina reopens with new emphasis on Spanish-Mediterranean, seafood dishes; Tapas looks to create open-air storefront; 23rd St. quick lube proposal not so quick at City Hall

“I have been away from having my hand in the daily operations, and I want to be back in. But there is no place for me to be in a counter-service, inexpensive restaurant.”
Said Krause, who is a classically trained chef who previously gained a national reputation for serving $80 per plate meals out of his Dan Rockhill designed home in East Lawrence.
Well why in the Heck would you open a restaurant like this to begin with? He's acting like he's swooping in to save this crummy little restaurant, and give it the great Krause blessing.
I wonder if the change is due to the possible fact that people were getting wise to the overrated slop coming from the kitchen.
$13 for Paella for lunch, get real.

Town Talk: Talk of a West Lawrence recreation center involving KU Athletics heats up; a car wash project and a discussion about whether the city is business friendly

I would much rather have this than "my tax dollars" being used for a library. I agree on voting on the issue. And maybe you could stop sectioning off the city. West of Iowa is still Lawrence, we are a community we should start acting like it.

2nd library director candidate presents vision for future

So we are all in agreement then? Anything library related is a huge waste of time and tax money.

Public input sought on trash, recycling report

Mandatory carts? Screw that. Not enough room in the garage, and what an eyesore two carts parked outside will be.
