To the editor:
I am writing in response to the city commissioners' decisions regarding Robert Krause.
I would like someone from the City Commission to explain to us why we can spend the next 24 years developing two "new urbanism" areas, but we cannot allow current local businesses to do just that.
If we really want Lawrence to be the town we all think it is, we need to start today supporting our local businesses. After all, they are one of the main reasons people come to visit Lawrence in the first place.
