Firefighters investigating suspicious fire in southeast Lawrence

I know when it's breaking news it needs to be gast, but E 25th is not on the north side. I mean, not even close. And this: Firefighter respond to two-alarm fire.

Hope everyone is ok, that's what we need to know, though.

Lawrence school bus vandalized with anti-Free State messages

I'm sure because they figured out that there are cameras at the schools and you will get caught. Who knows who did it.

Old Navy, Academy Sports, others announced as likely tenants for south of SLT retail project; Walmart Express taps Baldwin

And on the east side of town (which is where we need stuff) absolutely nothing. No grocery store or anything. Awesome.

Our Town Sports (June 26)

I keep forgetting the information on who to contact to add something to this. (I currently need that info). Couldn't it just be listed at the end of the article?

Trash day to change next week for many Lawrence residents

I promise to have my trash too full from the nearly two weeks it will be in there instead of the usual one week.

Trash day to change for many Lawrence residents as city prepares for curbside recycling

And there is a rule about you may only leave your can out there 24 hours. I think it's like the snow thing and someone has to complain, but it's there.

How safe is your school: Bullying and school violence in Lawrence

If you will notice it's an acronym. It doesn't use the T, but SOMP doesn't spell anything.

Lawrence man charged with rape of 13-year-old

Are you serious right now? First, he worked at the schools so knows what a 13 year old looks like. AND, I don't care. That is never ok. Even if a child is "experienced" it doesn't matter. How did they get this experience? From being abused previously? Really.

Brush fire in Douglas County largely under control

It's farther away than East Hills. You can get to East Hills from both 15th and k-10. I don't know beyond that.

Lawhorn's Lawrence: Ham sandwiches, food stamps and dreams of pie

You aren't "meant" to eat only that, but some do. However, I wonder at the amount. I'm pretty sure I know single people that get near that much. I'm trying to figure out how much that is a month, about $450. OK, I WISH I spent that much on groceries. We are paycheck to paycheck people here. There are weeks that something big comes up and I've spent $15 for a week (not counting school lunch as we do pay for that), but for the sake of the argument on groceries alone. Usually on those tight weeks, we do count down until payday. We don't buy all the "good stuff". Yes, I stock up on most staples, so we always have extra noodles and rice. I have eaten cheese rice for dinner, throw some seasoning on it, it works. Got a pack of peas in the freezer (that's a $1 item) and you have a veggie too. Meats if you don't have any left from the previous week? Chicken thighs. Supper cheap. I also look for marked down stuff to cook immediately. As for lunch, or sweets, tortillas (peanut butter on a tortilla is delicious get some bananas at checkers, bonus). Also, always add extra noodles to the mac and cheese, you can then have leftovers to take to work. Now, a normal week we spend about $80 a week for a family of 4, so don't worry we aren't starving. It's just those off weeks that come when your kid needs money for a choir trip and you need tires. But, my argument is I know it CAN be done. Also, I know people that use their vision card, feed their kids GREAT and still have leftovers for snacks and drinks at the end of the month. They are just better at budgeting. I guess it's what you get used to.
