Only in Lawrence: Margey and Bob Frederick's trail of generosity

Margey, I have always adored you, so I am very pleased to see this piece about you and Bob! I know there are many more wonderful things that can be said about you than can even begin to fit in this article, but I want to mention that I was lucky enough to watch you be the heart and soul of the KU Visitors Center when it came into being. What fun moments you brought the staff and student workers, too, like the time you brought in a basket of hundreds of Cadbury eggs! The student workers' eyes were never so big. I'm glad you are being recognized, even though clearly that's not why you do what you do.

President Obama arrives in Kansas

During his visit, I really hope that President Obama comes to see how historically significant, dynamic, and wonderful Lawrence is.
This is a pretty special place, and this is a remarkable occasion to have him here.
Welcome, Mr. President!

Letter: Abuse enforcement

Actually, it's not the DA's matter yet. The officers need to complete their investigation before the case is turned over to the DA's office.

Police respond to animal cruelty complaint at KU fraternity

You've got to be kidding. Quit making excuses for them. That turkey could have ended up alive and safely returned as they promised on 6News the prior evening. It's not that hard to keep a turkey alive. Something is very wrong with these young men, and it's time to stop diminishing how inappropriately they conducted themselves. They tortured it in the name of fun.

Rebuilding Lawrence's German history

Honest study of history most often reveals a complex story. The question becomes how do we celebrate through preservation and events when the picture isn't entirely rosy? However, if a town can manage to accomplish this, it's Lawrence. I look forward to watching this evolve and I support it completely.
Well done, Chad. Nice work. Very engaging and well-constructed feature.

Relatives come from across nation to pay respects at black cemetery

Thanks for doing this piece and thank you to Mr. Cheek for deciding to be a part of respecting this history!
Langston Hughes' grandfather, Charles Langston, also owned a farm near Lakeview, but he is buried here in town at Oak Hill Cemetery. These ancestors certainly would have known each other.
I'd love to see more pieces about Black history in Lawrence, like an in depth piece about Mamie Dillard.

Natural selection: Burial method gains popularity

As one who is quite familiar with Oak Hill Cemetary because its history is interesting to me and it is next to my Brook Creek neighborhood, I want to thank you, Chad, for giving us this well-written piece about this unique part of it. I had wondered about that corner, and I think it's a really great alternative. This area of town is so interesting, and unlike the neighborhoods of some of my friends, who are in other parts of town, I've known many of my neighbors for years. It's funny to me when I hear others reference this far east side of town as "scary" or "dangerous". I'm happy to have chosen for the last 13 years to live in this friendly, interesting, and historic part of Lawrence.
