Lawrence-based hamburger chain expanding into Kansas City; a 1,000-foot water slide coming to town; area swimmer signs pro contract with adidas

When you do a search the link says"tickets are going fast"
When you click on availability it shows only 40 tickets available in one place and 32 and 47 in other places. Unless those are the only tickets that were ever available, I'd say that it is almost sold out

So they are almost sold out for an event that they don't have a location or permit for?

That was the concept behind the Bauer development on Sixth. We see how that worked out. (New Urbanism)

LMH CEO receives performance evaluation, salary increase

So we should fire him because he makes too much money?
That is the same mentality that large corporations use to reduce minimum wage worker's hours so the corporation don't have to pay for health insurance.

Chamber of commerce wants chance to run convention and visitors bureau; longtime Lawrence security company purchased

Please try to keep up. The Hotel that is being built in KC is 800 rooms (Your statement was 3,000). And what do you call a legit group? There are many organizations that need a convention site that could use the size Lawrence is talking about. 3 conferences in one week is not out of the question. Some conferences could only be a day long, but the folks are going to buy gas and meals, the conference organizers are going to pay a large fee to use the facility, all money coming into Lawrence I also think that you think too little of Lawrence. Downtown is already a shopping destination, with folks driving in just for that.

Exaggerate much? Try 800 rooms. We are not going after the same market as Downtown KC. There is a market for smaller conferences as envisioned by those in Lawrence. Having a conference center downtown puts everything within walking distance, which is attractive to conference goers. Overland Park convention center does many of the types of events that they are talking about, sometimes 2 or more in one day, but there is none of the amenities that Downtown Lawrence offers nearby within walking distance.

Free State Brewing Company creates new beer series; AT&T expanding broadband service; City Hall creates new online public forum

It gives those of us who who work nights and can't go to commission meetings the opportunity to comment.
Who do you think is the god of the machine?
We don't have one to swoop in and fix all the problems, because the playwright couldn't work out in the denouement.

That's why they ask users to register. And anyone who thinks that they are going to pull someone off a garbage truck to monitor this is an idiot.
Not putting out a lot of money on this bet,, since I can get a new Fresnel for under $100.00. (I already have enough Fresnels, so I don't need any more.)
