Pop-up prom in downtown Lawrence; south Iowa street retail development begins to open

I had the misfortune of going to Five Guys once when I lived in Lawrence. It was such a disappointment. The food was about average, priced too high, and the place was a mess, not like one would expect a restaurant to be.

Mystery grows around pending deportation of longtime Lawrence resident; online protest petition tops 27,000 signatures

Absolutely correct! He skirted the law. Simple fact. He has lived a peaceful life here. But he is here ILLEGALLY. He needs to go back to his home country. And if allowed years in the future, apply to come here LEGALLY.

Grocery store files plans to demolish building, start anew along south Iowa Street

The Aldi's here in Paducah, Kentucky was torn down and rebuilt from the ground up. And the new store is wonderful for the shoppers. I like shopping at Aldi's, and the new store makes it more enjoyable. They had a temporary location so the customers were not too inconvenienced. It worked out very well.

LMH reaches deal to build multimillion-dollar medical facility near Rock Chalk Park

They want to move the breast center out to the new facility on the west end of town? Will there be adequate convenient transportation for the women who need to get there? Perhaps it would be better to have two locations to better serve the women of Lawrence and the surrounding area, instead of sticking it out there so far from the population to the east.
