Lawrence schools at a tipping point

I agree that there must be a more cost-effective, efficient manner of solving this problem. However, I don't think keeping those schools open would have helped. The majority of kids simply don't live in those areas anymore. It's certainly not efficient to bus them from way out west to the east side. (And I make that comment as someone who lives in an older part of town and loved attending Cordley as a child.)

Lawrence wants property to house multimillion dollar police headquarters

Hadn't thought of that, but it's a really good idea -- good location between the jail and the courthouse, and it would clean up a problematic area.

Tenants to Homeowners files plans for independent, senior living project in south Lawrence

Does anyone know when they plan to break ground on the 9th and Delaware project? Also, isn't that corner in the flood plain? I work near there, and when we get a lot of rain that whole area looks like a lake.

100 years ago: Lawrence buyers purchase huge apple crop

Anyone know what happened to that orchard? It sounds like there were quite a few orchards around here 100 years ago.

Proposal: $6 million rural water plant near Lawrence

Thanks. Did you watch The Dust Bowl on PBS? Or read The Worst Hard Time (the book the documentary was based on)? Apparently we never learn the right lesson.

Brownback appoints his chief counsel, Caleb Stegall, to the Kansas Court of Appeals

Wasn't Mr. Stegall a public school teacher before he went to law school?

Recent rains delay some Lawrence road construction projects

Some of these projects weren't started until just recently. Why didn't they plan to start them early enough to allow a few days for a rain delay? Anyone want to start a pool on how many car accidents there are the next few days as new students move into town and try to navigate through the orange cones?

Moving season begins in Lawrence

Those guys from that American Pickers tv show should come by here this time of year!

100 years ago: Survivors to be invited to Quantrill's Raid commemoration

I wonder when the spelling of the raider's name changed from Quantrell to Quantrill.

100 years ago: Lawrence residents vote for new bridge

Is this bridge (the one presumably finished in 1915) the one that was torn down in the 1970s to make way for the two that we have now? I was pretty little when it was replaced, but I remember it as being much prettier than the current ones.
