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.

100 years ago: House painters injured when scaffolding collapses

Wonder if this Carl Kreider grew up and donated money to the hospital to establish Kreider Rehab Services?

Letter: Fireworks menace

How did you explain to the children involved that it was ok to ignore this law, but not others?

More than a decade after a citywide ban, fireworks still making noise in Lawrence

Personally, I support the ban, but I've had it with the police not enforcing it. If they are going to actively choose not to fine people even when they're caught red-handed, it should be repealed. As it is, kids with parents who follow the law are punished and those who parents ignore it aren't. I used to live near Forest and Delaware. Every year a group of kids and parents gathers to set off fireworks. Every year the police come by and remind them to be careful -- no ticket, no fine, not even a request to stop. If they had been fined even once, they most likely would have stopped. What kind of example does it set for children when their parents ignore the law and the police encourage them to do so? Either enforce it with tickets and fines, or repeal it.

As Briggs prepares to move out of Sears building, rumors heat up that Dick's Sporting Goods will be moving in

Read the article about the LJW expanding its relationship with Google (published yesterday). I have a feeling those surveys are covering a chunk of the cost of our free online access, so I'll definitely be answering them.
