STD rates on the rise in Douglas County; gonorrhea experiencing most dramatic surge

The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department can provide condoms for free, but you will need to meet with a nurse on the first visit. This can be done on a walk-in basis during clinic hours. I'm the communications coordinator at the Health Department. Feel free to contact me at @info@ldchealth.org or call the Health Department at 785-843-0721, if you have further questions. Clinic hours are listed at the bottom of the website: http://ldchealth.org.

Sunflower Foundation grants $110,000 for part of Lawrence Loop

Thanks to everyone involved in the Lawrence Loop project! I use the SLT bike path nearly every day during the warm weather months and the Rock Chalk Park trails nearly every day during the winter months. So, glad to have a safe place to ride my bike and walk. I see people of all ages using these trails.

Dog being cared for at Humane Society after owner's body recovered from Kansas River

Sad to hear this news. I had the privilege of meeting Dwight and his dog while spending a day at the Salvation Army. I did a series of stories and this was one of them: http://wellcommons.com/groups/nosuran...
Dwight was kind enough to share his story.

Live blog: Monday night's public forum on closure of Lawrence SRS office

I had trouble getting Internet service at times, so I apologize for the gaps especially at the end of the forum. Rep. Paul Davis ended the forum by encouraging everyone to contact the governor's office. He said that Lawrence legislators and leaders will continue to fight to keep the SRS office open.
