Indian tribe wants to keep options open on casino gaming, local delegation told

It is based off of the sales tax reported by the business. The requirement is an annual one. In other words, one month where food sales drop below 55 percent doesn't put a business in violation. As for whether every applicable business is checked every year, I'm not sure. I'll ask. Thanks, Chad

Johnny Brusco's New York style pizza chain headed to Sixth and Wakarusa

It is the Mother Earth News Fair, a convention of sorts for people interested in sustainable living. It is expected to bring about 10,000 people to downtown over two days. Here's what we wrote on it last week. http://www2.ljworld.com/weblogs/town_...

Boutique bike-oriented fitness studio slated to open in West Lawrence

I haven't heard directly from El Mezcal about its reasons, so it would just be speculation on my part. I refrain from doing that on this one. Based on the number of people who called me after it closed, it seems like it was popular. Thanks, Chad.

Lawrence wants property to house multimillion dollar police headquarters

I think when people refer to that, they are referring to the property near the SLT and Bob Billings that is referenced in the article. I'm not sure it was ever purchased to be the site of a police headquarters building. Instead, a site for a police substation or perhaps another fire station is how I remember it. The city isn't interested in building a police substation anymore. Thanks, Chad.

Lawrence city commissioners narrowly approve ban on porch couches

City officials last night said they weren't confident they could prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the previous ordinance on the books could be applied to upholstered furniture on porches. It left open an argument about whether a whether a porch was an exterior part of the home, and it also left open to debate what was outdoor furniture. The new ordinance is more specific on both counts. Thanks, Chad
