Hy-Vee to open environmentally friendly convenience store on Thursday

Did you miss the part about native plants & buffalo grass, as the article stated?
• Landscaping beds that use native plants that require very little watering.
• A grass lawn planted with buffalo grass instead of standard fescue. Yochum said the buffalo grass is expected to use so little water that the store was allowed to be built without an irrigation system.

Sound Off: When is the city going to stop watering its parks and Eagle Bend Golf Course?

No doubt! DCB is the worst offender! Who they heck are they paying to maintain their sprinkler systems? Every time I drive by there I get sprayed by sprinklers that are watering the street & parking lot!

Bishop Seabury receives FEMA grant to build safe room

Really? In private buildings? Please provide examples if you're so certain.

And if you had read the entire article you wouldn't be making such a bold prediction:
"The safe room would be for the students and staff at the school in the event of a tornado. The school had looked into opening the safe room up to the surrounding neighborhood during a tornado warning, but FEMA had concerns about the amount of time people who are off campus would need to get there, Schawang said."

Bishop Seabury receives FEMA grant to build safe room

Wow! The irony astounds me! I wonder how many parents of students at BSA are Republicans who are screaming mad about federal tax dollars being wasted on pet projects but when it's FEMA money for a safe room for their kids at their PRIVATE school they think it is okay! Why in the world is $400K in federal money being spent on a safe room at a private school in Lawrence, KS? I'm sure Brownslack will ask them to return the money when he finds out.

Lawrence man, 53, injured in fight outside Jazzhaus, flown to KC hospital

That is a ridiculous statement! The Jazzhaus just celebrated its 30th anniversary and they will continue celebrating many more years!

Sound Off: I’m confused about how the city elects its mayor. How does the process work?

Thank you for your accurate summary! I don't know why these people are making such a fuss. I actually think it is better that the authority & decision-making is distributed across the entire city commission instead of granting the mayor of Lawrence additional authority. The popular vote still elects the city commissioners so the current process is still influenced by the will of the (voting) people.

KU student arrested on DUI, reckless driving charges after car crashes into residence

I believe it is relevant considering we live in a city which is literally & figuratively centered around the University. Besides, when a 21 yr old drives while intoxicated and crashes their car into a house on Tennessee St there's a pretty good chance a KU student was involved.
