Big wooden bird, bigger ball of fire envisioned to commemorate anniversary of raid

Great idea!, but be safe and not repeat the Texas A&M bonfire project collapse of 20 or so years ago. Better yet, Lawrence should make this a annual event with a "Burning Man" like theme, say at the "Sesquicentennial Park" near Clinton Lake. Would give some real relevance to that remote, underthought edifice!

Lawrence native lands lead role in new TV series

Great looking Oldsmobile, but not sure of the year, 1949-1952 all had same body style! Side trim and grill would be a give-away, my guess 1951.

Library calls for artists to turn fallen trees into sculpture

Too bad "the City" did not think to do the same when they destroyed the very large native persimmon tree that graced the front of the North Lawrence Visitor's Center. This tree was large enough to make enough golf club woods for the entire PGA entourage. (BTW persimmon wood is the best for real "woods")

Restaurant serves Christmas dinner, across the pond style

I'Ve been in twice, food pretty good, wait times horrible. Waitress did her best, but once order was placed too long a wait for food. There on Saturday following the Christmas Parade, not too crowded, but approximately 35 minutes from seating to food delivery. At least one couple left after getting frustrated, others turned away at door because they were not taking any other diners, even though there were tables available. Hope the place survives, but definately need to pick up the speed, don't know how they can expect lunch hour diners.

Cooking with something new: Sumac

A nice pinkish "Indian lemonade" can be may from the ripe red berries of the native sumac found around here, has the same malic acid as found in cider apples.. Mash berries with pestle or potato masher into cold water, dilute with more water, strain through cheesecloth, sweeten to taste. Make sure you do not use the rare (here) poison sumac which has white berries

Lied Center hosting free outdoor concert with Buckwheat Zydeco

This ought to be fun, Zydeco is great, Buckwheat is awesome. Used to see Chubby Carrier and The Bayou Swamp Band at the Jazz House and Liberty Hall in Lawrence in years past, but have missed him if he still comes here.

Party like mad! Or at least like Mad Men might

No doubt where your eyes drift when you look at this picture! It must been that green colored dress and not the person it it. I'll be pilloried for my sexist comment, but just part of life!

Paula Deen cooks up disappointment with diabetes drug announcement

Her Southern style of cooking is just a reflection of the cusine of the South. People who eat that type of diet on a steady basis can't help but being obese; the Southern States typically have the highest obesity rates in the US, due to diet, personal lifestyles and lack of exercise. Her recipies result in good tasteing foods, which if consumed very infrequently can be tolerated; but also can be a slippery slope to addiction.

Paula Deen cooks up disappointment with diabetes drug announcement

It isn't that she forces her recipies (as obese creating as they are) it is that she creates trust in her audience and thereby gives her authority and excuses for people who are vulnerable!
