City Commission vote pushes gun range into Lawrence shopping center

And not to change the subject or anything, but isn't that location where there was a Swedish Buffett restaurant way back in the 1960's? Loved that place.

Good question @Tony. The range downtown hasn't had any problems, so why would a range in The Malls be any different?

What's your favorite Western?

And Clint Eastwood's "The Outlaw Josey Wales" is great too, although as a Lawrencian it made me think of Confederates and Jayhawks in a much different way than I'd been taught. Hmmm, maybe the makers of "Red Bird" saw that one too?

What's your favorite Western?

Geez, no one's mentioned "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"? One of the great movies of all time IMO. And remember it's all a true story! Pretty much.

On anniversary of Quantrill's Raid, received knowledge about historic event faces scrutiny

Isn't the house on Sixth Street the same one that was used in the 1962 horror movie "Carnival of Souls?"

Lawrence-area couple builds '30s-style gas station

Love it! Nice cars, nice filling station memorabilia, nice picnic cooler and jug memories. What fun for you. Thanks for letting us see it. Ahhh... those were the days.

Tough guys: staff picks for Kansas enforcers

No mention of Curtis McClinton? He was the only running back I ever saw who took the ball and then just looked for some poor linebacker to deck. He played offense like he was on defense. All he wanted to do was hit someone. Caught the first touchdown pass in Super Bowl history too I believe.

Have you ever seen a movie being filmed?

I remember my parents talking about "Picnic" being filmed back in 1954-55 all around Kansas: Halstead, Newton, Hutchinson... The stars were pretty big: William Holden, Kim Novak, Roz Russell, Cliff Robertson, Susan Strasberg. And I think there was even a story about the actors staying at the Eldridge and walking out on the window ledges after a few late night parties. I wonder if anyone from Lawrence has any stories about that one?
