Linwood man dies in car-motorcycle accident

The I-70 business center is where the driver's license renewal office is. I wonder if she was heading in for her renewal? If so, I hope she doesn't get it.

Lawrence man, 31, faces charges in local burglaries

I don't generally like making long posts, but here are the answers.

K.S.A. 21-5221. Use of force; definitions.
(a) As used in article 32 of chapter 21 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, prior to their repeal, K.S.A. 2011 Supp. 21-5202 through 21-5208, 21-5210 through 21-5212, and 21-5220 through 21-5231, and K.S.A. 2011 Supp. 21-3212a, 21-3220 and 21-3221, and amendments thereto:
(1) "Use of force" means any or all of the following directed at or upon another person or thing: (A) Words or actions that reasonably convey the threat of force, including threats to cause death or great bodily harm to a person; (B) the presentation or display of the means of force; or (C) the application of physical force, including by a weapon or through the actions of another.
(2) "Use of deadly force" means the application of any physical force described in paragraph (1) which is likely to cause death or great bodily harm to a person. Any threat to cause death or great bodily harm, including, but not limited to, by the display or production of a weapon, shall not constitute use of deadly force, so long as the actor's purpose is limited to creating an apprehension that the actor will, if necessary, use deadly force in defense of such actor or another or to affect a lawful arrest.
(b) An actor who threatens deadly force as described in subsection (a)(1) shall be subject to the determination in subsection (a) of K.S.A. 21-3211, prior to its repeal, or subsection (a) of K.S.A. 2011 Supp. 21-5222, and amendments thereto, and not to the determination in subsection (b) of K.S.A. 21-3211, prior to its repeal, or subsection (b) of K.S.A. 2011 Supp. 21-5222, and amendments thereto.

K.S.A. 21-5223. Same; defense of dwelling, place of work or occupied vehicle; no duty to retreat.
(a) A person is justified in the use of force against another when and to the extent that it appears to such person and such person reasonably believes that such use of force is necessary to prevent or terminate such other's unlawful entry into or attack upon such person's dwelling, place of work or occupied vehicle.
(b) A person is justified in the use of deadly force to prevent or terminate unlawful entry into or attack upon any dwelling, place of work or occupied vehicle if such person reasonably believes that such use of deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or another.
(c) Nothing in this section shall require a person to retreat if such person is using force to protect such person's dwelling, place of work or occupied vehicle.

Were you ever in a spelling bee? What words did you struggle to spell?

I won the spelling bee when I was in fifth grade. The word that I won on was "thrice". I also had to spell the word my opponent missed, which was "charcoal". He spelled it "charchoal".

I placed seventh in county, missing out on the word "fuel". I flipped the "u" and "e".

Serious injuries reported in 5-vehicle accident near Sixth Street and Kasold Drive

oletimer - pay attention to the modified date on the story. It was updated after Ron posted his comment. At the time of our comments, there was no information about the driver of the Cadillac.

Quit running your mouth, period.

Westside Lawrence Farmers' Market called off

According to the Douglas county property search, the property is currently owned by Condor Investments, Inc. I could not find any relationship between Condor Investments, Inc. and Famous Dave's of America, Inc.

From the Kansas Business Center Business Entity Lookup page, it looks like Condor Investments is a foreign corporation owned in Lincoln, NE. The corporation was formed in Kansas in November 2010, and it's current KS status is Delinquent - they did not file their annual disclosure or pay their fee.

There might be other relationships lurking around, but I didn't dig any deeper.

Man threatened with a chainsaw during argument

That complex is terrible. In the last several months there have been 2 incidents with guns and now with a chainsaw. I'd say the owners need to re-evaluate their leasing strategy.
