Other brands of Soymilk are made with a process that throws out the naturally occurring dietary fiber and other nutrients which results in a Soymilk that does not deliver all the "health goodies" nature has put into the soybean._ - Best Choice Soymilk cartonTwo local residents reported to Breaking News with an air of incredulity that they received open container citations for drinking beer on the street before a recent KU football game. According to the residents, who were both of legal drinking age, they were drinking cans of beer as they walked from a tailgate near Memorial Stadium to Cork & Barrel at 901 Mississippi St., when a police officer stopped them and wrote citations.As the residents were recounting the incident-while drinking in a legal manner at a pregame tailgate-another resident who was preparing to walk to a liquor store poured his beer into a red plastic cup and insisted, "The cops don't care as long as you drink it in a cup."To find out if this is indeed a rule, or at least a rule of thumb, the Breaking News Watchdog Unit posed the question to the Lawrence Police Department and received the following response from Sgt. Bill Cory:"The Lawrence Police Department enforces all city ordinances related to alcohol offenses. It does not matter what type of container the alcoholic beverage is in. It is illegal to possess/Consume an open container of alcohol on public streets, alleys, sidewalks, roads, highways, or public parking lots. For more information you can refer to city code 4-105 or 4-203."Thus proving that, even if the cops may be cool with something for practicality's sake, they're not gonna come right out and tell you so.
