Take a look at the building that East Lawrence residents hope to save from wrecking ball

Thanks for the clarification. I've always wondered...

Take a look at the building that East Lawrence residents hope to save from wrecking ball

I would be curious of the history of this building. I've heard stories of a POW camp in East Lawrence during WWII -- was this building used for that? I think it could be an interesting space for small shops down on the east side, but someone would need to make the commitment.

Proposal restricts industrial development north of town

As a homeowner in North Lawrence, I'm happy to hear that this will not happen. Rain in the hills north of town needs to run off somewhere ... hopefully not in my kitchen. Do we seriously need to pave every piece of green space in the county? Mother Nature doesn't care about my political leanings.

The developers want to make their money, but the tax payers get to subsidize their profits by paying for the storm drainage. And then subsidize it again when the drainage fails and we need more pumps and more levees and more pipes and roads repaired and bridges repaired.

Varsity House being disassembled to allow for construction of apartment building

Okay, now you put the article on the front page of the site. It think the editors set this up just to make me look foolish. Touché, LJWorld. Touché.

Thank you for adding the photo... better late (after everyone has already read the article) than never.

Could the LJWorld send a photographer down there to get some shots, or has Fritzel requested no documented proof that the house wasn't a pile of rubble before they started to move it.
COME ON!

Middle school principals reject ‘Tom Sawyer’ as single ‘core’ text for eighth-grade English

Thanks for the clarification, though this tidbit would have been good to know before the quotation of Rush lyrics began. ;-)

Middle school principals reject ‘Tom Sawyer’ as single ‘core’ text for eighth-grade English

Mark Fagen @ LJWorld: it would be helpful to know what books were considered "core" so we have something to base a comparison. There are only so many books an 8th grader can read during the school year -- if I knew what books were still required and what other titles were optional, I might be able to make an educated comment, rather than jump to conclusions and make moronic trollisms.

Poehler price tag

Hey LJWorld: no one could run down the block to take a photograph of the building? Or how about something out of the archives from the building's heyday?
