Summer roadwork expected to create traffic woes on portions of Iowa, 31st streets

I work at one end of Iowa and reside at the other, so I'll plan to go quite a bit out of my way to avoid two major construction zones. Anything that will improve Iowa in the long run is welcomed by me.
I found out years ago that I could traverse town faster by heading west to Kasold than taking Iowa, and that was without construction zones.

On the contrary, I'm still ever so grateful to have such a short commute (in both time and distance). After living in three countries, five states and driving long haul over-the-road for a living for three years, this is a cake walk!

If you ran off to the join the circus, what would you do at the circus?

The Ringmistress !

Chances are I'd end up being the shady lady back by the mermaid tank, or a fortune-teller, though.

Missouri man killed in motorcycle accident near Lawrence

You have heard of this thing called insurance, right? Most hospital and emergency treatment calls are paid by it, not taxes.

My condolences to the family of the deceased and wishes for a speedy recovery to the injured.

How will you deal with construction at Sixth and Iowa streets?

It's my straight shot from work to home, and the detours are limited for N/S routes in this town, so I'll just turn up the music and the AC and wait my turn for the Rockledge bypass. I really have no other way without wasting more time and gas going over half a mile out of the way.

UPDATE: Buffalo Bob's to close at end of month; Ladybird Diner plans to open along Mass. Street in June; city, county hosting Horizon 2020 meetings

The original "comfort food" is back again... now it's called Paleo and Locavore eating. Food that your granma made.. as the Real Food movement states, "It's not food if your great-grandma wouldn't recognize it." Or rather.. someone's great grandma.. in any country. I just hope they don't chi-chi up the diner idea so much that it prices people out of a good diner meal. I'm a little tired of each new eaterie trying to out-fancy the next. Although... along that pie idea, a simple yet delicious breakfast or lunch quiche sure sounds nice!

Real food is made by people you know, not mass-produced and flash-frozen cardboard held together by scary chemistry and trucked to a restaurant once a week in boxes. This sounds delicious!

Disabled military veteran victim of bizarre theft

If you rotten little buggers that did this think that you pranked some rich dude, you were sadly mistaken. Please do the right thing and give back his property, even if you drop them off anonymously to be returned to him.
Show some respect for what he's already sacrificed so that you have freedom.
Thanks kids!

Deal struck to bring new grocer to Sixth and Wakarusa; Google's latest announcement and its impacts on Lawrence

It wasn't a shop, it was the office for a heating and air company called Hopkins Sheet Metal Heating and Air. The "tin man" was made by Terry Hopkins, an owner, and maybe a couple other guys with the company.
Source: My husband started out his career as an HVAC specialist with them.
