I may have to go one more time just because it's awesome what he's doing with the profits there at the end.

KDOT interested in expanding western leg of SLT to four lanes; update on Ninth and N.H. and possible downtown drug store

Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

KU to choose among internal candidates for new vice provost job

Normally, yes, but in this case there are a lot of new efforts underway and it would slow down the process to have to train an outside person. In this case hiring someone with institutional knowledge is a really good idea.

KU to choose among internal candidates for new vice provost job

"The new job will not have any budgetary effect on KU, Rosen said, as it will replace another position in the provost’s office, special assistant to the provost."
