Downtown Lawrence to get an old-fashioned soda fountain as part of major building renovation

130 varieties of root beer and many say on the label "Manufactured for...". Which to me means a lot of labels on the same product.

I will admit to buying a good quality root beer around 2013. Hosmer Creek. You're welcome.

Many microbreweries, ones that have a restraunt attached, brew their own root beer. With having a fountain, are there plans for serving a micro root beer?

No discussion? Maybe we should go back to anon.

An Angel's journey from superstar player to camp instructor

We were so lucky to be able to witness the tandem of Angel Goodrich and Carolyn Davis, who herself made it look so easy. Injuries. Imagine, if you will what they might have done without the interruptions.

The XII minus II is arguably the toughest league for women's basketball. A middling team in that league advancing past opening weekend at the NCAA Tournament in consecutive years is testament.

Bonnie, God bless her, was just too nice. Even with the feiry Katie O'Connor playing good cop/bad cop, they couldn't get enough positive emotion or reaction from the individuals.

Steve, go back to Texas and let us deal with our own. You just have had to have lived it.

Brownback vetoes bill that would reverse tax cuts he championed

Can we veto this guy? In all seriousness, Tom Holland, can this veto be overridden? I know all that is needed is one stalwart Republican.

Find it.

Start this guy's slow, painful spiral out of politics forever.

Tom Keegan: Changes working for LHS football

I will say up front that I was most vocal (or in this forum is it literal?) in my displeasure of Coach Wedd's style during discussion of an opinion piece titled 'I Think it's Time To Get Off Coach Wedd's Back'. Since that time and to Coach Wedd's credit there has been notable change to his program.
One example was bringing a former Sunflower League quarterback prospect in as an assistant to mentor his field leader for an offensive scheme far from what would have been used to be called Lawrence High Football.
A point I tried to make at the time was how players shouldn't go both ways the whole game and if the same eleven were going to it decreases participation.
Both Coach Wedd and his wife Gwen have a love for this school and town that is rarely competed with, and I fully expect their visages to be beaming down at visitors to the Lawrence High rotunda some day.
I hope my personal growth has come close to matching Coach Wedd's over the same period of time, and I thank you Tom for pointing his out.
