Town Talk: City delays vote on Ninth and New Hampshire hotel/apartment project again; city to tackle issue of longterm R.V. campers near South Park; Lawrence chosen as Midwest retirement 'haven'

Lawrence has a KOA campground for recreational vehicles. Clinton Lake also has campsites. Both have shower facilities and safe cooking fire areas for people who prefer not to live in traditional brick-and-mortar buildings. They collect appropriate fees for usage. If some people want to live in their vehicles, that's fine, but I don't think the public streets are an appropriate place to park them.
These guys are basically camping.

An explanation to readers about recent home delivery issues

I think the J-W is counting on losing print subscribers. As soon as enough people cancel their delivery subscriptions and a tipping point is reached, the J-W will begin charging for online access.

It’s showtime: Jayhawks seek revenge in tonight’s title game

According to the Bill James calculator, 54-37 with 10 minutes left is not insurmountable. That lead was only 30 to 35% safe.

Statehouse Live: Brownback says he will look into SRS food stamp policy that has cut assistance to some but plans no change

Sometimes a family's ability to provide for its kids is fine when the kids are born, but changes if a parent is suddenly laid off, or becomes ill, etc.

Agencies seeking donations to help Lawrence family of 11 whose house burned

Perhaps United Way could set up a page on their website to indicate what items are still needed each day, and provide updates on how the family is doing. A local bank could also set up an account for cash donations to the family.

Richard Gwin's favorite photos of 2011

Love the exaggerated morels! On the other hand, if they're really that size, bring some over and I'll cook you dinner!

Charlie Weis introduced at KU

I don't doubt that Weis loves his family, but I think a man who lives halfway across the country from his wife and disabled child is not a "family man." I think he's a man who's married to his job. How often will he actually spend time in Florida with his wife and daughter? That said (and before y'all jump on me,) I know it's none of my beeswax. If it works for them, that's what matters.
