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.

Murder conviction of former Lawrence carpenter Martin Miller overturned by Kansas Supreme Court

I think in this case it is the school that is a Christian school, not that Martin was a school leader who was a Christian.

Should Kansas do away with no-fault divorces?

If a person is to read the entire bill, there is far more than just whether or not two people can divorce easily. Read what it has to say about child custody being mandated only by a jury, cutting alimony after 12 months no matter the length of time of the marriage and further interference into child support and custody that is downright frightening.

No fault divorce is the least offensive part of this entire bill and not the part we ought to be worried over.

Fitness center near Ninth and Iowa undertaking major expansion; group working to create a local currency

I still have one of the REAL Dollar bills.. I think it's the one with Burroughs on it. My ex-partner helped in designing one or maybe more of them.

Cleanup continues after Lawrence hit with historic snowfall; several school districts close Thursday

The smart people are staying off the streets so that they *can* get cleared. All those stuck cars are going to mean your street gets bypassed for snow removal until the plows can safely pass.
You're an Academic Librarian, I'm sure that UMKC can handle a day or two without you.

Have a cuppa tea, enjoy the snow day, chill out. It sounds like you need a day to relax a bit.
