State arts grant boosts effort to purchase equipment, lights at new Theatre Lawrence

Could someone explain how it is okay for the community-supported theater to now rent space to a mega church? Isn't that like the city underwriting a church?

Lied Center to host The Price is Right Live!

I don't think it is a Lied Center event. A rental.

Asphalt Orchestra downtown performance

Gee, downtown Lawrence should be vibrant and alive! Maybe you should move your office to some quiet shopping center where your clients won't be so bothered. KUDOs to those who arranged this.

Let's not forget that changes were made in 2004 because hunters shot 3 whoopers. Let's not go backwards.

Heritage grants divide county commission

Peter - one more question. Conservation easements are supposed to be the difference between land value with and without the easement. How can the owners by paid $625,000 if the land is currently on the books for about 1/5th of that. Either they aren't paying fair taxes now or the public (and public funds) are getting a bad deal. thanks.

Heritage grants divide county commission

Seems like the "big" story here is the conservation easement. If I read this correctly, the owners will be getting $572,000 - plus more to come - in public funds. And they get to keep the land. This seems that we should at least know who the owners are. Are there any conflicts of interest? Does the public get ANY access? Peter - could you do another story on this?

New pro-business political action committee enters city commission race, fueled by $5,000 donation

Why doesn't Farmer step up and address this issue? And why not also explain his theological training in the Assembly of Gods? That's some pretty conservative stuff. Would fit with this PAC.
