Woman searches for mysterious Lawrence hero from childhood

THANK YOU.
Wonderful explanation. I'll go look for it this afternoon; I think a building still stands at that location.

Interesting that you, too, remember a particuIar Union Pacific employee.

Would love to hear which street held the grocery store--and any other memories you have regarding the store!

Town Talk: A boardwalk-like development along the Kaw gaining steam in North Lawrence; city's retail vacancy rate lower than K.C.'s; a meeting for public farmers

Ah, yes. The ugly grain elevators (standing longer than many of us have been alive) should have scenes painted on them immediately to improve the look of North Lawrence.

Suggested weekend assignment:
Take the bridge from Sixth St., turn east onto Locust, and look at those massive silos, oddly bright against the Kansas sky. I have driven there several times this November, just to stop and stare at their stark beauty. Stunning. May they stand untouched for many, many years.

Locust St. currently has become a vibrant and localized Antiques Row, thanks to five or six different hardworking shops/owners from the 500 through 700 blocks. I appreciate the ability to visit them easily, and I am for almost anything that would help all of of those small businesses (and restaurants) generate more retail traffic in the area. I enjoy the river and the trains and the historical feel of the small churches, not to mention the beauty of the elementary school.

I do fear, however, the manner in which the development could be designed/developed/funded. If not thought out well--and if pushed through with little public input--could be another towering Lawrence mess vs. an attractive part of the river area and the city as a whole.

Just a note:

Should be ten "residents" displaced (vs. "residences") in first paragraph.

Yes. Keep the pressure on indeed:
