Basketball tournament brings 300 teams, thousands of people to Sports Pavilion Lawrence

You missed the point. This was built for the recreational needs of this community. Outside tournaments are icing on the cake. This community should still get some of the cake. We were promised use of at least one court every day, regardless of use by those outside of our community. This is not a private facility.

What happened to always reserving one of the 8 courts for recreational use, no matter what tournament is here. I support the tournaments and the economic impact, but the promise, since this was built with the recreation tax, was that one court was ALWAYS to be available for LOCAL recreation.

Rising enrollment at Free State High School displaces theater classes

There are already classes in that space. They are displacing those classes to allow for more meeting/gathering space. It is like asking the other departments to bid for use of their traditional classrooms.

Lawrence teachers union seeks evaluation feedback 'without fear of reprisal'

"Stubblefield said she thinks the surveys provide a channel for meaningful and protected feedback, but that adding the proposed language to the teacher contract could make the process more formal."
Why is the district afraid to make this process more formal? Most labor contracts are crafted to deal with past abuses from either side.

Rising enrollment at Free State High School displaces theater classes

Maybe we need to have some those meetings that are now going to be scheduled in the black box and put them in the gymnasium or the weight room. Surely they are not used every hour of the school day.

Rising enrollment at Free State High School displaces theater classes

“Except for specially equipped classrooms, such as science labs or career and tech classrooms, all classrooms in the district are flexible-use learning spaces, including cafeterias, gyms, libraries and black box theaters,” Doll said.

The Black Box Theater IS a specially equipped classroom, just like the science labs, career and and tech classrooms.

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

That has to do with your delivery person, not the location of the production. I get my LJW by 5 every morning.

Before you discount the Freedoms Frontier, have you actually been there? (And it IS nationally promoted) And I am not involved in museums or historical tourism, just a regular citizen....

You keep harping on a Civil war museum in Lawrence. We have one at the old Carnegie Library. http://www.freedomsfrontier.org/
