Small aircraft crashes in Lawrence field

Yikes. I wonder if this is the same aircraft we saw flying VERY low & making turns also very low near Prairie Park yesterday afternoon.

Lawrence Community Shelter moves into new home

Are they going to do anything to prevent people from the shelter loitering around the Prairie Park Neighborhood?

Prairie Park students become published authors

Neat project but the books were not free. I paid $19.99 each in order for my kids to get to take home a book.

June 30th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

A guy we know who has a pro license invites friends and friends of friends every year to his fireworks show. In previous years it has been at his private property in Douglas County but they moved it to YSI this year. He gets better each year and his show rivals if not tops the city's show for sure.

Mountain-lion sightings focus of wildlife meeting

In the fall of 2005, I was driving East on 31st St between Louisiana and Haskell. A deer shot out from the South wetland area and ran across the road about 20 feet in front of me, chasing it was a low-lying, long, animal with a remarkably long tail. At the time I wasn't sure what to think of it and thought it might be a moutain lion but I didn't know if a moutain lion would be chasing a deer. Later, after talking to a geologist professor at KU, he said that sure, moutain lion would prey on deer. Now I know that I did indeed see a mountain lion chasing a deer into Broken Arrow Park near that fire station.

Dozens of Lawrence property owners have already received tickets for not shoveling sidewalks

After the last snow, my retired neighbor was out and shoveled his driveway, the elderly man across the street's driveway and sidewalk and then saw me out shoveling and offered his assistance clearing my large driveway. What a great neighbor.
