Sprecher Root Beer? Cream Soda? Orange Dream? What about the specialty Faygo flavors? This place sounds awesome!

KU history professor named as new head of University Honors Program

There is some interesting math here. He has taught at KU since 1997, so for 16 years. Yet, the article says: "Earle has been teaching and advising with the Honors Program for more than 20 years since then." Not mathematically possible.

Cost estimates for Rock Chalk Park infrastructure come in about $3 million higher than expected; Self's foundation to make $2 million donation

Everything else costs less. But Fritzel, allowed to bypass the bid system, comes in high -- to the tune of $3 million. Something reeks.

As city prepares to bid recreation center, officials still waiting to receive cost numbers from Fritzel on infrastructure

I hope that all those above complaining about Mayor Dever and the City Commission's approach to this insanity will take the time to e-mail Dever et al directly. The only way this Commission seems to pivot on issues is when there is a direct public outcry. Cut and paste your comments, and e-mail them. These commissioners need to hear that not everyone is in love with this process.

P.S. Is there any way to get the new City Commission to re-vote on the whole project...?

Recreation center and Rock Chalk Park Q&A

Chad and LJW, thank you for this Q&A. Great idea and excellent coverage of this community issue. Local newspapers with local journalists are critical to democracy.
