To the editor:
Last evening, upon our return from a driving trip down South and up East, I sat down to review the news in the Lawrence Journal-World during our absence. Judy Stuart’s letter of Nov. 7 caught my attention.
I noted as we drove through Columbia, Mo., that this university city (like Lawrence), attractive to retirees (as reported in the J-W), had both Olive Garden and Red Lobster locations. When I read Ms. Stuart’s letter with her emphasis on the location of popular eating places (in west Lawrence), I thought I would add those two suggestions to her list of possible restaurants.
If the Kansas and Lawrence leaders would like to attract retirees, I would ask them to consider something other than increasing taxes — like some established and popular eating places in a west Lawrence location.
