High schools notebook: Infield leading Lions softball

That young athlete, Morgan Byrn, is truly amazing. She is as smart as she is talented, and her whole family is very proud of her, as we are of all the lions! Special shout out to her dad, Mike Byrn...who played Legion ball, college, coached, and continues to coach women's teams, along with his brothers, John and Bill, outstanding players and coaches in their own right. Mom, Amy, setting an example of excellence and love, just like Shelly Byrn and Rachel Byrn....and the matriarch who is the sports guru of the world and the Byrn family....coach, umpire...enthusiast, ever-lovin grandma...who never misses a game...Pamela Byrn Boldt. When they say it takes a village...well, it takes a family...and the Byrn family certainly has what it takes....lots of love for each other...and the game!

Kathleen Sebelius resigns from Obama Cabinet

Well said. And I heartily agree...although I have agreed with most of her politics and am grateful for her efforts on behalf of those who cannot always speak for themselves. So much easier to criticize than to actually LEAD and solve those problems.

Editorial: Community leader

I just wanted to say--and I know Loring will object, but I think its the right thing to do---we need to rename the Shelter after Loring Henderson. I know a lot of people worked very hard, including Shirley Martin-Smith, Hilda Enoch, John Tacha, and all those on the committees, but the driving force, unrelenting, quietly determined, ever compassionate, the person with grace and mercy in his soul, who, in his 70's saw this project through, was Loring Henderson. He is an amazing man, and I hope that others will agree. I see names on buildings everywhere in Lawrence with dedication plaques to honor those who played a part in erecting the structures. Well, I think Loring deserves that and more. So, over his humble objections, I think its time we, as a community, say thank you, at least in part, by putting his name on a place that will give hope to those who have so little. The name will tell generations that this citizen of Lawrence made a difference; helped us all make a difference. The Loring Henderson Community Shelter sounds GREAT to me.

Lender seeks ownership of athletic club

Oh whatever. I'd rather express thanks to a person who has done so much for so many than judge from the outside. You must have missed the part about how this happened---LAC paid bills with us for over 10 years--on time, always. As for "coddling insiders" -- I have to say I do have respect for people who built this place--and if you don't like it...well....you know the rest.
