Plans filed for Dollar General store in eastern Lawrence; law office has expansion plans; local author has piece featured in New York Times

Happy is synonymous with joyful and a foot is an appendage. I think that was his point. NOT "happy endings" which wouldn't NEED to be trafficking, some people enjoy that type of work.

Perry-Lecompton drug-testing policy creates questions about teachers

So to paraphrase: It's too expensive to test staff, but it's not too costly for students. If they test staff, there will be legal ramifications, and privacy issues. But kids, they don't matter.

Also, testing their hair? People, start buzzing your hair. Oh and you know that going to concerts can make you test positive even if you did nothing yourself.

City sends proposal for shooting range near school back to planning commission

Ultimately they can't look in my trunk without a warrant unless I say they can. Especially if I didn't break a law. It's not probable cause to be pulling into the business parking lot. So, if my weapon is in a trunk locked up, nothing they'd be able to do about it.

Not that I have a gun in my possession.

I'm about to go against the liberal stereotype that I tend towards. I live near 31st and Haskell. When this idea for a shooting range came up, my daughter was concerned because it was close to the "school". She has attended the Career Center. My thoughts are the school shooters are NOT the people using a shooting range. These will most likely be the responsible gun owners. Yes, that's a thing. Additionally, if one is planning to shoot up a school, they won't be deterred from or swayed by the distance to their desired target. Basically, I am for the location at 31st and Haskell. I do think it's a better place than the Malls.

Latest weather service forecast calls for freezing rains, icy roads through 4 p.m.; see map of city streets to be treated

We have over a week for school to start back. It won't be an issue today. Maybe call, email, or write to the city before school starts back.

Heavy rains, construction cause leaking roofs at Lawrence schools

But what about the other schools that leak? I know that Prairie Park and South both leak. South is too new. Seriously. Not to mention South was designed poorly, you can't even put the student body in the auditorium, and with a band concert, many parents can't even find seating.

Group hopes to register hundreds of Lawrence high school students to vote

Will they be doing the lunch thing this year? My kid needs to register, but she isn't in a government class this semester.

Chatter about a possible Lawrence Costco grows; a closer look at how developers hope retail grows near Rock Chalk Park

If it opened at Rock Chalk Park, it would still be easier for us to go to Jo Co. It's seriously a quicker trip out of town.

Clubs for LGBT students and allies now at all Lawrence middle schools

I'm not going to lie, if it's a single bathroom with a locking door, I"ll go to the girl one first, but if I'm in a hurry and it's occupied, I have no qualms using the boy one. They lock, no one is coming in! Who cares who went to the bathroom in there last?

Ribbon cutting and 'Parade of Schools' mark halfway point of bond construction

So, the parking lot at LHS is going to be done in 2016? Seriously, that's not a long job and I've seen them work on it one day since school started.

Also, side question, why does a brand new school (South Middle) have buckets to collect the rain inside? According to this chart the middle schools are all done. I know they were working on the restrooms during the summer. I haven't asked my son about the gym recently, but he said there was water damage earlier this month so they couldn't have the dance in there. But why is this brand new building leaking? My house roof leaked and I got it fixed as fast as possible to avoid further damage. My home was built in the 60s though. When was South built? Less than 10 years ago. My fuzzy brain thinks it was maybe 5 years. It should not be leaking. (Other schools in the district have receptacles for water inside as well).
