Are you telling me there's not already a Starbucks moving in?

Local business adds minigolf course to offerings; funky art on tap for new Qdoba building

And there used to be a Putt-Putt miniature golf course right there by the old Kwik Shop, maybe in the mid-60's if I recall correctly. Big fun.

What is your favorite constellation?

I agree with Skylar: the Big Dipper is easy to find, and the top two stars point right at the North Star. So if you find the Big Dipper you can always find True North, and you always know where you are! And of course the 'Big Dipper' was KU's own Wilt Chamberlain.

Simons family selling Journal-World to Ogden Newspapers, Inc.

This is a sad thing to read. The Simons family did a great job with the JW and Lawrence news. Best wishes to their family, and I hope the Ogden Newspapers Inc. does as well as the Simons.

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?

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

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?
