What kind of bugs are you most eager to avoid?

Chiggers and mosquitos. Those are two of the biggest reasons I never moved
back to Kansas. Chiggers and mosquitos.

See proposed facelift for large Massachusetts Street building; Kansas, Lawrence job totals off to slow start

You're absolutely right @Steve. I just now saw an ad in the June 9, 1953 edition of the JW that has an ad for Ramsdell Motors, 'Your Dependable Dodge-Plymouth Dealer" 623 Mass. Phone 361.

Lawrence Historic Resources board delays vote on East Ninth design, told plan is a 'slap in the face' to history

Wow, interesting comments. Did the City never ask for public input on this project? After 20 years of planning did the City never ask for neighbors ideas about what should or shouldn't happen?

This would be a very interesting thing to learn more about: What parts of East Lawrence history are being ignored? What things in the plan should be deleted? Which parts of the plan are worth keeping? What do the neighbors think? And most importantly why are these issues only coming to light now? Weren't there neighborhood outreach sessions and community meetings held to flesh out the plan over the past several years?

Journal-World parent company considering demolition of large downtown Lawrence building

Looks like 70's architecture maybe. I remember the JW building on New Hampshire in the early 60's and it looked a whole lot different that what is there now.

Didn't this building used to be Mayflower Moving years ago?

What's your favorite building on the Kansas University campus?

Absolutely right! Dyche Hall. The architecture, the gargoyles, the natural history exhibits inside... 2nd choice is the Campanile.

Kansas now has 'official cage elevator'

Wow, I remember riding in that elevator back in 1961 or 62. Very scary. I had no idea it was still there and still in use. Wonderful to see. Thanks.

One of Lawrence's older restaurants set to close at end of month; report says Kansas taxpayers getting good value on taxes paid

I remember going to the El Matador Café in 1960-61-62 with my parents, and then again in 2013 for a family reunion. Always great. Let's see, 2016 minus 1960 carry the two, divide by three fingers, two toes and a side of refried beans and that equals at least a 56 year run for this great hidden Lawrence gem.

Former Lawrence mayor and Parks and Recreation advisory board member Sue Hack and current mayor Mike

Were there ever complaints to the city about people smoking in the parks? Or is this just a reaction to people who imagine a problem that doesn't really exist? My guess is that there have been many more complaints about dogs pooping in the parks than people who smoke outdoors.
