LJWorld.com's most-popular stories for Tuesday, May 17 and lists of college graduates


It's been a sad Wednesday morning so far. We had two early breaking news stories. The first is a fatal rollover accident on U.S. Highway 59 south of Lawrence and the second is a house fire in the 700 block of Maple Street in North Lawrence.

We're in for scattered showers throughout the day, and it looks like a chance for thunderstorms overnight. According to the National Weather Service forecast, it's going to rain the rest of the week.

One other note — We've uploaded lists of candidates for degrees from Baker University, Kansas University and Haskell Indian Nations University. You can filter the lists alphabetically by name, degree, school and department.

The KU list of graduates is linked above in my post in the third paragraph. It's also in our "latest" headlines list on the home page.

We haven't posted the local high schools yet, but will do that this week.
