100 years ago: 'Exit the straw lid' -- Mayor declares hat-changing time for residents

Thankfully, we live in a more enlightened time in which it is no longer a criminal offense to wear straw after Labor Day.

City still hopeful that Vermont Street parking garage will be open by KU football's home opener

They may just want to come hear and see the band.

Do not stand in the aisle when half-time ends.

Most road construction in Lawrence on schedule

What about the west end of Jayhawk Boulevard and the work that has the north end of Naismith closed?

Former KU Medical Center residents close to getting FICA refunds

The regs are clear now that these residents are employees, but it was unclear back then. KU treated them as employees, so they got the benefit of those quarters of employment. They will likely lose that when their FICA is refunded.

Note the driving force behind this -- The State of Kansas. it doesn't care that these residents will lose work credit for those periods, it just wants its share of the FICA back, and it found a loophole to get it.

40 years ago: Fireworks scheduled for skies above Memorial Stadium

I used to watch them from the roof of a three-story house across Mississippi. You could lay back and feel the concussion.

One year, a friend and I were shooting bottle rockets off that roof using a cafe curtain rod to aim them. A curtain rod/bottle rocket bazooka is accurate enough to hit the badge on the door of a passing cop car from the top of a three-story building.

It is also possible to make it down off the roof and over the hill and be sitting in the old Bierstube in about 11 seconds.

Letter: Safety concern

Looks like the ruffians are starting to invade the special people's neighborhood.

Poor special people.

But I'll bet these are home-grow ruffians, west side ruffians in their parentally subsidized Jeep Cherokees.

What y'all think?

Development roundup: the Kasold curve, Myers Liquor and more speculation about a downtown restaurant

The promise of Taco Grande sanchos would be about the only thing that would get me back to Hays, Kansas. I spent a week there one day.

And since we are waxing nostalgic about long gone Lawrence comestibles, how about those King's Food Host cheese frenchies? One of nature's perfect foods. It is a proven fact of medical science that every nutrient needed to sustain human life is found in a cheese frenchy. (You can still get them at Don and Millie's in Omaha. For the best ones, go there on Wednesday, because if I recall correctly, they change the fryer oil on Monday or Tuesday.)

I miss Taco Grande. Those sanchos were the best.

Breaking down the private funds that pay the KU chancellor's salary

That's almost a 14 percent raise.

What percent did faculty and staff get?

What percent did other state employees get?

And what is the chancellor's total compensation?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Sound Off: Truck dogs

That would work for kids, too.
