Man struck by car cited for jaywalking

What!! Things are crazy. The victim had gotten off the bus and was crossing the street, just like what we are taught to do in elementry school. The car that struck him was attempting to pass the bus. I was always taught one should not pass a bus, especially if you are crossing into oncoming traffic. I do not feel the guy should have gotten a ticket, but I guess according to the letter of the law? What about the driver? He was unsafely passing and driving in the incorrect lane!

Vertical expansion of downtown Lawrence draws more than shadow of a doubt

1) Dennis Domer--former associate dean of architecture at Kansas University?? Perhaps he worked at the University of Kansas?

2) I vote for the sun. If I wanted to live in a city, I would like in Kansas City. Most of the appeal of Lawrence, is the town/village appeal. If you want to increase population density, stop building toward Topeka.
