This is what Kansas Day is all about! Via Facebook.

Happy Kansas Day Eve! Sleep tight and just maybe if you have been a good Kansan, Amelia Earhart will bring you Russell-Stover chocolates. And if you have been a bad Missourian, John Brown will shoot you and your family while you slumber.Tommy Bobo

Kansas Day is January 29th. This will be the 149th anniversary of Kansas’ statehood.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital switches to boxed water

Lawrence Memorial Hospital will be the first hospital in the nation to use boxed instead of bottled water, beginning this Wednesday. While this isn’t anywhere near as efficient as reusable cups and tap water, which we all should be using, it is a step away from plastic bottles. I’m not too sure I want to be using re-usable cups in a hospital anyway. I’ll find my efficiency elsewhere, thank you.

ECO-Choice Natural Spring Water’s packaging is made from 74 percent paper. It is derived from renewable and sustainable resources. For example, the manufacturer uses wind energy to produce them. For every tree used for packaging, two trees are planted in its place…[and] because the cartons are square in shape, the company can transport more of them at a time, thus using less energy to store and transport them.Karrey Britt

John Brown Jayhawk


Kansas turns 148 years old today! Go Jayhawks! I’m sharing one of my favorite pieces of Kansas-related art with you to mark the occasion, so please enjoy “John Brown Jayhawk”, courtesy of The World Company. The actual sculpture is housed in the newsroom at the Lawrence Journal-World.
