Licorice, blueberry, lime, lemon, fruit punch and MMMM! strawberry! I thought the pic was a candy ad.

Snow coming down hard, area roads snowpacked

Not a problem. My bifocals are probably why I DID read it. :)

Read the caption-- it says by 9pm tonight, not for the whole storm.

Longtime employee Linda Lassen 1 of 2 laid off at Penn House on Friday

Yeah, and notice they waited till after Linda worked her tush off through the holiday season to let her go. No transition period, no notice, and certainly no training of anyone to do all the things she has done--that would make sense!

Nothing from me for Ballard either.

Trick-or-treaters take over downtown

Amen to that! Of the 15 featured people, only 4 of them were kids.

KU enrollment falls, but freshman class grows for first time since 2008

Recruiting freshmen is a no-brainer, and finally caring about transfer students from Community Colleges may be a start, but KU still ignores adult education, especially here in Lawrence.

Make it possible for an adult to finish their education while working. Have classes that count toward the degree at times when working adults or parents can actually attend. Make it possible for people to get additional degree or course work that facilitates career changes, and quit acting like anyone outside the traditional student mold is there to leech off the system.

Oh, and while you're at it, quit acting like parents are simply cash machines who exist only for the university's benefit. As a former student and former employee of KU as well as an alumni parent I'd be the first to say the problems are systemic and will probably never be fixed--it would require common sense which we all know isn't common.

Town Talk: TCBY frozen yogurt store coming to Downtown Lawrence; list of area eco devo projects gives glimpse at companies that may be considering Lawrence

Amen! I loved Twisters! And they reheated well too, even in those (now ancient) microwaves with dials.

Prosecutors charge Illinois parents after children were found bound, blindfolded

QUOTE: "The newspaper reported that Deborah Gomez pleaded guilty in 1998 to misdemeanor endangering the life of a child and admitted leaving two young sons, who were 2 and 3 at the time, home alone for eight hours one night several months earlier at the family’s apartment in Naperville, Ill."

Are there more kids out there belonging to this couple? Or is it just lousy math/lousy reporting somewhere along the line? 1998 was 14 years ago, so the kids involved then would 16 & 17 or 17 & 18 if it occurred in '97 and was prosecuted in '98.

Cemetery will lack flags for Memorial Day as poles turn up missing

If they noticed this and reported it to police last week, why are we just now hearing about it? Why wait till the almost last minute to let people know, when it's too late to fix the situation?

Sound Off: Is Christmas always on Sunday?

As many chips as a chipmunk could chip if a chipmunk could chip chips.
