Donor David Booth explains his $50M gift for KU football stadium

What in the world are they planning to do to Memorial Stadium that costs $300,000,000? I've been there, ands I wonder how that "renovation" compares to what the stadium cost in the first place---in real dollars, and in now dollars equivalent to what it cost then.

Ex-Lawrence mayor asks court for exception: probation instead of prison for embezzling from food bank

Gee, Jeremy, in a perfect world, the person CONVICTED would ALWAYS get the "punishment" he wants. Sorry this world isn't perfect. You did some real damage to a fine organization. Time to "pay the piper."

Causes of 2 recent apartment fires unknown, but not suspicious, investigators say

I used to live next door to this building. They were very close--separated only by a double driveway. I'm only surprised at the total devastation of the fire.

LMH shares plans for mental health crisis stabilization center with Douglas County Commission

This is NECESSARY in a community the size and structure of Lawrence. When LMH closed its psych unit several years ago, it diminished the resources in the community for people with serious mental health issues requiring inpatient services. This may only be a stopgap measure, but it is heartening to see that LMH is once again stepping up to serve a part of the community that is in great need of the service.

More on the latest chicken chain; update on a Lawrence resident's effort to win Kelly Ripa contest; local business awards and Habitat for Humanity fundraiser

The last time I was in Lawrence, there were a LOT of people living there who are NOT milennials. Maybe a restaurant set up for good quality food, which does NOT serve chicken and would appeal to the middle aged folks could be an idea.
