OK, so that was sarcasm. In case you've never heard of Lawson, it is made up of 2,000, is 45 minutes from Kansas City, features a small state park called Watkins Mill and is completely centered around its high school, particularly high school sports, and especially football. I really enjoyed going to high school here — the school district is fantastic. But, as a blossoming 20-something college student, the town just doesn't interest me these days. Sorry, three restaurants, 4 gas stations and a barely-there grocery store for entertainment just won't cut it for me for now.
Lawson did have it's annual picnic last weekend, however. Now, I have started my internship at The Sun News in Kansas City's northland — The Sun News has papers in Kearney, Smithville and Liberty. However, because all three papers are weeklies, nothing has been published yet (I've only been here for a week). So, I'm just waiting for everything to be published so I can post pictures!
This blog post is about as boring as it gets, but I mostly just wanted to share some fun, no-pressure images on my blog. Anyway, enjoy! I'll have a 4th of July post up soon (those pictures have been published) and will be back Wednesday and Thursday with what's been going on in the past week.
