To the editor:
I am a retiree, one of that demographic Lawrence wants to attract, and moved here about a year ago. I talk a lot, probably annoyingly, about the benefits of living in a university town, the friendliness of the people, the beauty of lakes, trees and flowers but what moves my family and friends in Colorado and Missouri to awed admiration is the trash pickup situation. “You mean,” they say in hushed tones “that you just put stuff out by the curb and they take it? No bag limit, no fines, no nasty little notes on trash that doesn’t qualify?”
When I assure them that there is none of that, they almost weep.
Please, please don’t change it.
