Indian tribe that once proposed North Lawrence casino purchases large tract along interstate

Can anyone explain how they would be able to have a casino? I'm all for it. I'm just unclear on the land issue; is it not subject to the same regulations as normal property, or, once a tribe buys land is that land then a sovereign entity.

More than a decade after a citywide ban, fireworks still making noise in Lawrence

It's a silly ban using fear as it's justification. Accidents happen. I believe the original ban was put in place stating the amount of property damage over a 25 year stretch accumulating something near $700k in damages; much of which was that one incident at an apartment complex. I agree with most here, if you aren't going to stop it, and, only give verbal warning, quit wasting our time and those of a public service nature and move on.

Four Topeka men to face trial in alleged K2 robbery at Lawrence McDonald's

So a guy who was in prison for selling drugs, gets robbed in a bad drug deal and then gets immunity? Surely he won't be at it again.

County supports cheaper towing charges

Still a lot. A month after reading the article about the towing companies sticking it to customers, I had an axle break in Topeka. 20 minutes to show up, $56 tow on a flat bed and he threw in $10 wood charge used to keep my vehicle level. It's not often I'd say it, but, they could learn from the Topeka companies.
