Menards project to build new distribution center, manufacturing plant in Lawrence is indefinitely delayed

How about the city give us what we really want which is a LOWE'S Home Improvement. I like them better than both Home Depot and Menard's. Nice quality stuff with better selection.

Lawrence school board names finalists for superintendent

Kyle Hayden would be fine selection. He has strong leadership skills with a no nonsense approach to district challenges. Since Kyle is from the Lawrence area, he has a strong understanding of the ebb and flow of the town, and would know when to call a snow day. This year being the exception since we really haven't had a winter.

Kansas Senate president: No rush to write new school funding formula

I predict that the legislature will let the schools close to prove that they won't be told what to do. It will be like the Federal shut down a few years ago.

Lawsuit filed against city over denial of south Iowa Street shopping center

I second that. There are already enough stores in this town that will only make it six months and then close. Then another retail space will sit empty. This town needs to use and repurpose the retail space it has.

Lawsuit filed against city over denial of south Iowa Street shopping center

As a member of the general public, I do not feel harmed by the city's decision. Why create more retail space when there is already empty retail space in the Home Depot parking lot that has been sitting vacant for years?
