Downtown Lawrence to get an old-fashioned soda fountain as part of major building renovation

My name is Dan Blomgren. I own Crema Dolce Gelateria 704 Mass. I am interested in sitting down with you to see if I can wholesale you gelato/sorbet to add to your offerings. I have a feeling once we start talking all kinds of ideas will be thought of to combine our products.

I have most of the equipment you may need as well. I'm on Facebook. Message me there, and we can see where this might take us! Thanks, Dan

City of Lawrence seeking funding to build $1.5 million tunnel under Iowa Street

It's the equivalent of me putting in a swimming pool in my backyard when I'm in need of a new roof, new paint, and a new furnace. But wouldn't it be nice to have that new pool! I would be the envy of all my neighbors

Has anyone driven down Kasold lately? I need new shocks the road is so bad. And the city wants a new police headquarters too. The list goes on and on! But wouldn't a tunnel be cool! So would a pool!

Local book drive collects more than 2,000 books for underprivledged kids

A wonderful example of people taking care of a situation themselves instead of turning to the government for all the answers.

Yellow Deli hoping to bring sandwiches and 'fruit of the spirit' to downtown Lawrence

Phil Patmon,
You are obviously watching this thread with a response to Keith Richards yet you choose not to answer a simple and direct question from Clark Coan. Why is that? Perhaps something to hide? You have an open forum here to dispel untruths and clear the air so why the silence? Could it be the answer would only uncover your cult practices? So Phil we are all waiting for your reply.

And for the record you and I have never met, and I hope we never do!

Activist hopes shutdown will spark 'Occupy Congress' movement

Do any of you 'activists' really think that holding signs in South Park in Lawrence, Ks will have ANY affect in Washington D.C.? You may get cheered on by passing motorists honking their horns, but again it doesn't change a thing in D.C. where it matters. Hey here's an idea: how about instead of standing on a street corner all day holding signs you spend those hours writing letters to those who can make a difference? Maybe make your voice heard? Stop the useless and foolish behavior, and do something that actually makes your voices heard because honking cars in Lawrence fall on deaf ears in D.C.!

Saturday Column: Benghazi questions undermine Obama’s credibility

I have never had such distrust for the President as I do with Obama. Every time he opens his mouth another lie is spewed to the american public. I am amazed how he gets by with it, and how he is still so strongly supported by the liberal left. Their glasses can't be that rose colored can they? I would like to put more faith in the american public, but just as with Obama my hopes have disappeared. I have never been so distraught with America as I am now.

18 area students named National Merit semifinalists

I don't remember the exact numbers I used for enrollment. I pulled them off the internet and wasn't paying real close attention to exactly when they were taken. I knew they would were relatively current and just needed/wanted a ball park figure.

The argument I made was based solely on the NM numbers. Again having any class hit 18% for national merit is mighty impressive.
