South Lawrence Trafficway contract to be awarded Sept. 18; construction to begin soon after

Any word on whether any tribal representatives are going to monitor the excavation within the Haskell Agricultural Farm Property, as stated in the final MOA?

A road to better wetlands

The route KDOT prefers for the SLT would put it right through land that has historical, cultural, and religious importance to us Indians. We know and understand Haskell's history better than anyone. Many students died of tuberculosis or pneumonia from living in Haskell's cold, damp buildings and from poor medical care. Not to mention malnutrition, injuries, abuse and other diseases. Those who have researched the National Archives says that as many as 700 students are missing from the official records. Some people, including myself, believe that a few of those students are buried in that 573 acres that used to be a part of Haskell. No, we can't prove it and even if we could point out where those graves are, we wouldn't. Too many of our relatives have been dug up by grave robbers and those who want to study us. I believe any disturbance would be a desecration. Just because the land does not belong to Haskell does not mean we don't have strong ties to it. All we are asking is to leave the historical impact that the land has had on generations of Haskell students intact and to leave us a peaceful environment from which to practice our spirituality. This is a difference of cultures and most people do not want to take the time to understand, much less show respect.

When online friends die: a goodbye to Multidisciplinary

I am very sorry to hear of MD’s passing. She was truly one of a kind. We exchanged private messages for a short time but life got in the way and I wasn’t able to keep up with her. A missed opportunity on my part.

May your journey to the spirit world be peaceful.

Town Talk: State moving ahead with $17 million West Lawrence interchange for SLT; KDOT also preparing for SLT eastern leg construction; N. Lawrence project heads to City Hall

"The SLT plans long have included a rebuilding and relocation of the stretch of 31st Street that runs through wetlands. (The road will move south, farther from the Haskell campus.) "

That should read "OFF" the Haskell campus, not "farther from". That part of 31st street sits on Federal land and I would still like to see the ROW document...that is if it even exist.

Lawrence Journal-World resolving delivery delays

My mother told me about the $5 delivery charge on Friday. Unbelievable. She said it was not being billed with the paper subscription but being billed separately. I thought that was strange.


Congrats LJW! You've just made my list of Lawrence businesses who take advantage of the elderly. At least that's how you made she feel...and after being a loyal customer for over fifty years no less...
