Knology set to drop WGN, RFD TV and other networks from cable lineup; Baker files plans for $1.2 million wetland education center; study finds Lawrence has among the lowest development fees in the region

It's the cable networks' fault. The big ones use their muscle to drag along select weak channels so that we are subjected to the likes of "Honey Boo Boo," while the smaller players get squeezed out. It's the American way -- might makes right. I investigated antenna TV and Roku a few months ago and cable proved to be the best deal for my viewing habits. Sad though, since I really only visit perhaps 20 channels a month. Perhaps in the next year when it's time to upgrade my computer the picture will change. I will miss WGN (stands for World's Greatest Newspaper!) more for "America's Funniest Home Videos" than for baseball, but it's a huge loss nonetheless.

Lawrence Laundry: Maxi dresses a summer statement

Uggh. Those girls aren't old enough to remember the 70s. Those who do not learn from fashion history are doomed to repeat it.

Snowbound: Rare white Christmas brings frustrations, fun

I think the Eudora snowplow is stuck in the snow! Either that, or it can't get around the three cars stuck on Cedar Street at the intersection with 12th. They're gonna have heck to pay playing catch-up to this -- they should have worked yesterday! Was the city trying to avoid paying overtime? When Tom Pyle was mayor, the streets were cleared in a timely manner. Ho ho ho!

Snowbound: Rare white Christmas brings frustrations, fun

I live in Eudora and have just woken up to the sound of a vehicle spinning its wheels on Cedar Street, a collector street for a pretty large subdivision. When I got off work last night at midnight it was the same story -- several stuck cars on Cedar Street and a symphony of futile wheel-spinning that lasted past 1 a.m. But Winchester Road, the other major collector street for this area, is even worse; we may have been the last vehicle (4 wheel drive) to get through on that street. For some of us, work is not an option, as it apparently is for the Eudora street department. Hope nobody in my neighborhood needs to call an ambulance before spring. I wonder if I can get the National Guard deployed here? This is shameful. Shame on Eudora!

Mo-ped fatality closes Sixth Street

fatal accident could mean anything -- that he tripped and fell and hit his head. there's been a lot of talk recently about large vehicles versus the two-wheeled kind, so soon after the bicyclist was killed in the county.
