  • Lawrence voters overwhelmingly approved a $92.5 million bond issue for the city's schools.
    The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/XXlo5H ) unofficial early results showed the measure passing Tuesday with 72 percent of the vote.
    About $80 million of the money will be used for upgrades and renovations to the district's 14 elementary schools and two high schools. The district will use another $6.5 million for technology upgrades and $5.7 million for expanding career and technical education programs.
    The bonds will be phased in over three years and are not expected to increase taxes.
