With slushy drinks in hand, Matt Sowders, a 2005 Free State High School graduate, left, and Jennifer Reynoso, Lawrence High School junior, head back to the car. Sowders took Reynoso out for a speedy Valentine's Day lunch Tuesday at QuikTrip, 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue, during her 30-minute break. Open lunch may become a thing of the past at Lawrence's public high school campuses because of concerns about student safety voiced by Douglas County Dist. Atty. Charles Branson.
