Longtime employee Linda Lassen 1 of 2 laid off at Penn House on Friday

Actually, Ballard took a very significant hit- the largest decline of any agency- from United Way in 2012, compared with the previous year. See this article:

N. Lawrence development project needs design guidelines, city says

The Sandbar is not opposed to the North Lawrence development. Not sure where you got that idea.

Creativity on parade for St. Patrick’s Day

The last time the Sandbar float was any kind of a boat was in 2007, when it was a double-decker riverboat and completely different from a pirate ship.

We've built a castle, barn, locomotive, volcano, Egyptian pyramids, a wedding cake, a 50's style car, an aquarium, the set of a Jimmy Buffett concert... I'm not sure how we could "mix it up" any more than that. As for recycling, we do try to re-use as much of the lumber and supplies as possible each year to not only save money on a very expensive venture, but also to reduce waste. The floats, however, are built from scratch every year.

Thanks to everyone for a great parade, it was another wonderful day in Lawrence!

Town Talk: Santa Fe depot lighting up while debate over restoration may be heating up; 8,870 city potholes; can I still pinch you on Half St. Patrick's Day?

Just a clarification on the Halfway to St. Patrick's Day party- this event is through the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee, and credit for the event should go to them. It's not a Sandbar event, though it happens to be in front of our building, and we are assisting the group with party logistics since we have some experience in that area!

We enjoyed our lunch at Pickleman's. The prices were fairly reasonable and there was a good selection of sandwiches, pizza and soup on the menu. It was a good amount of food for the price. I wouldn't compare the sandwiches to Jimmy John's, which I also love- they are more similar to Yello Sub in my opinion. Definitely get a cookie, they're delicious!

Town Talk: Compton also interested in Ninth and Vermont; Bambino's moving west; Carter leading City Commission fundraising; new signs that Johnson won't run; snow shoveling not just for sidewalks

It's definitely been there longer than 5 years. My best friend worked there while we were in college, which would have been around 96/97/98. It's changed ownership various times, maybe that's where the discrepancy is.

January 11, 2011 at 11:34 a.m. ( | suggest removal ) goes stale; what next for social bookmarks?

I was so disappointed with the news, I love delicious! I started the process to transfer to Diigo last night, and it was easy to set everything up. However, I still haven't received an email from them stating that the transfer is complete and nothing is in my account yet. I don't know if it's just taking extraordinarily long because they're inundated, or if I did something wrong. I guess I'll just keep waiting!

Cosmic 140 graphs Twitter's most influential users

I agree, Whitney- accounts local to Lawrence & Kansas City are most influential to me. Local news and business accounts, as well as people- the ones I already knew, or the ones I've "met" online. I've learned about all kinds of neat things around Lawrence that I didn't know before.
