The Lawrence We Remember Redux

David Klamet

Four and a half years ago I posted about Lawrence, The Way We Remember it. It and another similar post were very popular and I've avoided revisiting the subject. Until now. My thought is to revisit East 23rd St., before the new K-10 was built. I invite you to submit ...

I recall when my youngest son was in sixth grade here in Lawrence. Recess was eliminated or drastically curtailed because of the time it would take from academics. Now, having read ...

A New Convenience

David Klamet

I write this will sitting on the K-10 connector to Lenexa/Olathe. I started a new job in November of last year and since then have had the mind numbing drive each day from near Stull to College blvd near I-35. When I first started, the "Jo" routes in Johnson County ...

Simplify (Wall Street?)

David Klamet
