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.

Sale of Lawrence cable TV, internet operations finalized; new owner says changes in store

Call me a cynic, but how long will this ownership last before another regional group buys it out?

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.

Why the latest report to call Lawrence the most expensive city in Kansas may not be right

Ah, but Chad, living in Lawrence is terribly expensive if you work for the state/university, and are a renter. College towns have notoriously high rent, because they can get it from students, who double up in apartments. Those who might be "misfortunate" or "unfortunate" enough to be single and government employees cannot afford some of the Lawrence rents on their own. I know. I used to live in Lawrence, and worked at KU. I left Lawrence in 2013, from a retirement apartment. Aside from the fact that Kansas winters are nasty on those who have trouble tolerating the cold, I left because I could not find an affordable place to live. I was not alone.
