Going Green

The Subversive Cultivator has been talking of late about the greens (read: weeds) he deals with in his various farming endeavors. Being the saver he is, he hates to throw them away. Aside from his chickens, who devour waste and turn it into luscious, poopy compost fodder, ... Continue reading

Severe thunderstorm warnings mean business

Monday’s very isolated, but intense, severe thunderstorms in the Montara area provide a great example of why even severe thunderstorm warnings should be taken seriously. A “microburst” (we’ve mentioned this name a few times this summer — and most everyone in Lawrence knows about them) hit Montara ... Continue reading

I’m Bored…

School starts in how many days!? Depending on emphasis on words, parent or child could make this statement. Summer is winding down. Swimming is boring, ball games are over and vacation pictures are in the camera. Looking for a new idea to occupy my seven and ten ... Continue reading

One man’s junk …

I came to a startling conclusion the other day. I was reading an article about cycling training in some magazine or another and was chastised yet again to “cut out junk miles.” Junk miles are the bane of many an endurance athlete. As any serious cyclist (or ... Continue reading

Hey Dallas: It’s time to give Drew Gooden a chance

Maybe it’s the weird facial hair or the less-than-ordinary ‘dos that have turned teams off of Drew Gooden. You know the looks I’m talking about. When Gooden first arrived at KU, he had a clean face, a goofy smile and seemed to play the way he looked ... Continue reading

Magical Stoplights

GAWD do I hate the stoplights of Lawrence Kansas. Obviously, there is a higher power out there pulling our strings, making us wait for what seems like hours a year at local intersections. I can only guess what the traffic-commisioner-stoplight-programmer-puppeteer-commandant-in-control-of-the-timing has to gain by making lawrence motorists ... Continue reading

Yellow Light, or Orange Light?

My wife and I often have an argument on what to call the center light of a stoplight. She almost becomes irate when I call it an orange light, because she contends that everyone else in the world calls it a yellow light. I tell her that ... Continue reading
