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.

Details on new restaurant slated for Round Corner Drug building; city to settle sidewalk dining flap; update on downtown moves

Anyone care to venture a guess as to how long it will take before a drunk party goer hangs off of it and tears it down?

I don't know if this is still the fad when you agree with someone's statement on the Internet, but put me down for a "+1" for Stuart's comment.
