It wasn't all that long ago that the federal union at Haskell Indian Nations University decided to picket during graduation.

What didn’t catch my eye from last Saturday’s spring game

Bye-Bye Bounty: CSA week 2 - Salad and something different

So, I got more than one comment about my spinach-berry-banana smoothie. Yeah, it looks a bit weird and swamp-thing-like, but if you try it, you’ll like it. And if you do, maybe you can move onto something like this fella, which my son drank last week: (If ... Continue reading

Photos and video of Ground Zero the morning after Osama bin Laden’s death

A very quiet overnight this morning. Lawrence Police responded on the routine, every night calls, nothing out of the ordinary or of any major significance.

Too much ‘salt’ in the mix

For a playwright, words are the heart and soul of a character. My drama students are currently (hopefully) learning this as we delve into scene analysis before we even begin thinking about performance. The words are the key to all dramatic action – every impulse, every look, ... Continue reading

Sporting KC continues slide with 1-0 loss to New York

**Quick Critique:** Sporting found itself in the second half after a sluggish and sloppy first half. This contest saw the team give the ball away more than any team should. A positive is that the appropriate adjustments were made at half time and the level of play ... Continue reading
