Girl's pony led to her 25-year fair and rodeo career

JW/Ms.Wentling: Excellent feature. Excellent. Great photo(s) too. Not over-written, and you let the story lead you where it needed to go.

Only one developer submits proposal for resort at Clinton Lake State Park

No doubt, the convention space is needed, just might not be the right spot or right venue or right time. Maybe KU could get into the business of conventions then wherever / whatever is proposed it will sail right through. Oh, and add a library to it, too. Ya, that's the ticket!

Local beekeepers avoid widespread losses

An important news story and kudo's to the JW for running it.

Now, follow the recycling that leaves Lawrence and see where it goes and what happens to it, not just to the next point, but perhaps three or four jumps.

And, while you're at it, ask local car mechanics what the "flex fuel" is doing to older car engines - what are they seeing? More repairs? More problems? Is the "e-fuel" type of gas really saving anything? Hmmmmm?

Thief chops down and steals five downtown Lawrence parking meters; police seek public's help

Drones. Heat seeking, laser guided, missile carrying, wmd weapon enhanced, video capturing, mind altering, solar powered, soul scrubbing, truth detecting drones. (The solar powered was for all the tree huggers.) Don't mess with a revenue source, you scoundrels.

Teller's restaurant to change name and concept to Merchants Pub & Plate

Would love to see a gluten free offering too. I have a relative who has the allergy and hates to go out to eat due to the risk.

City discussing new police facility

Note to negative posters. Educate yourselves. The need is there, the information is there. Buy a vowel, . . . . get off your couch, . . . . find out for yourself, . . . but then again, you're just too darn busy aren't you. And that's about all I have to say about this.

Police investigating shooting in parking lot of Lawrence McDonald's

The prize inside a McSenior meal is a Pez dispenser with Preparation H. Your choice of characters. I thought everyone knew that. Jeech.

Wicked Broadband project seeks $500,000 city grant; downtown hotel project seeks adjustment to incentives package; historical society seeks $20k for new exhibit

Free money, just show with a half-baked plan, give some lame excuses about how it's needed for this and that, and then wait for the checkbook to open. All the while, basic city services go underfunded, delayed and scoffed at. And it it's this bad at the local level, just imagine how screwed the system is at the state and federal levels.
