Saturday Column: Changes in Lawrence attitude aren’t for the better

Dolph should read his own paper.

Thunderstorm leaves 500 without power in Douglas County; more strong winds forecast

Lawrence approves tax increase for 2015 budget; sales tax question moves closer to ballot

The headline is in direct opposition to the first sentence. It was only 5 citizens of Lawrence who approved the tax increase, NOT "Lawrence".
