Fasteddy, the leadership is certainly in place for the entire country to head down this same path.

Concept plan for 5K, 10K trails at Rock Chalk Park emerges

Comments by those like beatnik, jstanobservation, blindrabbit, 50 year resident are just rude and crude...and not even funny. They feed off each other like my 5th grade schoolmates used to. They add nothing to the conversation and are one of the reason why many civil, civic minded capable people would never consider running for Lawrence City Commission.

What Schumm proposes may or may not be a good idea (I for one like it, especially if linked to the SLT bike path). I think many walkers, joggers, skateboarders, rollerbladers, cyclists and others will like the idea. Time will tell as the idea develops.

But I want to emphasize that I cannot stand trying to read news from Lawrence is this forum and seeing comments from people like the above. In the interest of civility and good manners, perhaps it is time for people to have to use their name with their comments. Many, maybe most, other online local papers require this.

Lawrence attorney Wakefield may challenge Jenkins in U.S. House race

Wakefield has neither the temperament nor style nor ability nor intelligence to see all facets of an issue. It would be a mistake for her to be elected to the House of Representatives.

Lawrence attorney Wakefield may challenge Jenkins in U.S. House race

She is probably the last person we need in a position of lawmaking. Her brand of thinking has helped accelerate the demise of our country.

Huelskamp slams Obama, Clinton in 140 characters

I really think that if more had been said about Obama a long time ago we wouldn't be stuck with the guy now. I think its well past time to be worried about whether something said is pc or not. We are in real trouble with this guy Obama and he would have us continue down the same road at an accelerating pace. As for Clinton, he is the world's joke now as everybody sees him for who and what he is.

Yes, come back to Kansas, Kathleen, you carpetbagger. You sure have been wonderful in charge of the mess that is Obamacare.
