Ten O'Clock News; Ethnic tensions in Lawrence
Profile of changes in Lawrence following an influx of Puerto Rican and other Hispanic immigrants. Interviews with recent arrivals and "old-time" white residents, as well as a representative of Kaps clothing store on the decision to move from its Essex Street location. Mayor Kevin Sullivan attributes the city's difficulties to welfare and a declining middle-class tax base, and warns that the city of Lawrence will "make it very rough" for new arrivals who are unwilling to "contribute."
