On County asked to approve funds to begin restoration of Lawrence's Turnhalle building

I thought the Castle Tea Room was a private, for-profit restaurant and banquet center. if so, the taxpayers should not have to support it.

Turnhalle and the Baldwin Woods need to be preserved but don't see why the Castle Tea Room and LAC need money. The fund is for natural and historic preservation.

"Turnhalle" is German for "Town Hall"!, although it was used for the named designations.

Why doesn't the Caste zeta room have its wn fundraiser to raise a paltry $5,000 that's only 10 people at 500 a pop or 50 bucks each for 100 people.

Knew it was coming, told friends, the Castle would need money!

Where are thse who overcharged for the "restoration". Let them donate.

A grant to re construct the POW camp at 11th and Haskell would be more historic!

the county commissioners and administrators are also the ones who gave the ok on the massive mess that was the color something or other concert last weekend. lots of noise and disturbance for the neighborhoods and tore the heck out of the fairgrounds

$24,400 for the Lawrence Arts Center to support the "refashioning" of its annual production of "A Kansas Nutcracker."

$72,000 to the University of Kansas Center for Research to fund forest conservation in the Baldwin Woods.

Thellman and Gaughan ought to work for the federal government, where they could supersize their desires to frivolously waste taxpayer monies.
