Fourth of July celebration details announced; The Met makes major purchase of works by Lawrence artist

Chad Lawhorn

It is time to start making those Fourth of July plans. Start peeling the potatoes for the salad, dig the hole for the pig roast, and build the access road, concrete launching pad, and the 122 -foot-deep safety bunker for the "fireworks" show. Or, some of you may just want ...

Lawrence building totals off to slow start in 2014; a brief history of local property tax rates

Chad Lawhorn

Perhaps my wife has infiltrated the Lawrence construction industry and convinced the builders of her motto: Summer is for shopping (And in case you are wondering, the calendars that show summer beginning on June 21 are sneered at in my house.) As we told you yesterday, current retail sales numbers ...

Retail sales grow for sixth consecutive month in Lawrence; KU launches 25th startup company; city receives another incentive request

Chad Lawhorn

March Madness. You all remember those days in Lawrence. We were all mad. Stupid doctors who can't fix Joel Embiid's back. Stupid Stanford mascot. Stupid television screen that can't withstand a platter of 23 pounds of bean dip being thrown at it. Well, evidently we weren't so mad that it ...

More details on proposed PetSmart on south Iowa Street; city gets incentives request for $75 million apartment project

Chad Lawhorn

It is going to be a different type of one-stop shopping at 27th and Iowa streets. All of us youth-league coaches will be able to load up on our sporting goods gear at the new Dick's and be able to walk next door to PetSmart to pick up the feed ...

Town Talk: New West Lawrence restaurant aims to bring Chipotle concept to Italian food; UPDATE PetSmart files plans for Lawrence store

Chad Lawhorn

UPDATE: Plans have been filed at City Hall for PetSmart to move into vacant space next to the recently opened Dick's Sporting Goods Store at 27th and Iowa streets. Drawings show the national retailer taking the southern portion of the large building, which used to house Sears. The plans also ...

New economic numbers show Kansas, Missouri laggards; Eudora ranks high in study of best places to own a home, Lawrence ranks not so well

Chad Lawhorn

Maybe we've spent all our energy arguing about whether a football game ought to be played in Arrowhead Stadium. Or maybe we've spent all our money trying to lure businesses from one side of the street in Kansas City to the other. Whatever the case, Kansas and Missouri have missed ...

Plans filed for restaurant to go into former Round Corner Drug space downtown; city seeks comments on police headquarters location

Chad Lawhorn

I'm not sure it will involve coal, but it almost certainly will involve beer. While we could be talking about my stocking on Christmas morning, we're not. Instead, we're trying to determine the latest restaurant that will go into the former Round Corner Drug building at Eighth and Massachusetts streets. ...

More details on proposed East Lawrence bistro/bar and growing tensions in the neighborhood; KDOT awards $18 million bid for west Lawrence interchange

Chad Lawhorn

Maybe it will be street tacos. Maybe it will be Texas barbecue. Maybe it even will be Cajun. It is still unknown what type of food truck will be featured at an East Lawrence bistro/bar proposed for a spot next to the Poehler Lofts. But one thing is clear: Already ...

Large e-cigarette store opens on 23rd Street; part of Iowa street, multiple crosswalks approved for new pavement markings

Chad Lawhorn

I still don't have this e-cigarette trend figured out. I would think it would take an awful long extension cord to make it convenient. Actually, I'm told that's not how it works. If you want to figure out how it does work, there's no shortage of locations in town where ...

Tea and juice shop to open at Sixth and Wakarusa; West Lawrence grocer making progress

Chad Lawhorn

Soon, the only thing northwest Lawrence residents will be missing to ensure they wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed is the crow of a cock. Already there is enough coffee near Sixth and Wakarusa — think Starbucks, J&S, Big Biscuit, Dillons and others — to make my bladder hop like a ...
