Town Talk: $13 million likely city contribution to proposed youth fieldhouse/rec center, incoming mayor says; couple of sites under review for possible BMX track in Lawrence

The track on the farmer's turnpike is a cyclocross track. It is something related, though entirely different from the sport of BMX Racing.

Sound Off: Is Christmas always on Sunday?

Q: Why are fire engines red?

A: Because books are read too. Two times two is four. Four times three is twelve. There are 12 inches on a ruler. Queen Elizabeth was a ruler. Queen Elizabeth was also a ship. Ships sail the ocean. Fish live in the ocean. Fish have fins. The Fins fought the Russians. Russians wear red, and fire engines are always rushin'.

Crowds celebrate Halloween with downtown trick-or-treating

I really miss the old door to door style of trick or treating. In my area, hardly anyone stays home to participate in the handing out of candy. Downtown is a drag, and always has been.

Man, 30, pleads guilty to child abuse charges; grandmother alerts police

I caught the business end of a belt when I was a kid, and think that I'm better for it. My parents didn't hate me, in fact, they loved me enough to show me that there were dire consequences for some of my childhood actions. Don't lie, cheat, steal, kill, or be a jerk to other people or animals. Show your elders respect. A stinging swat with a hand or belt taught me many valuable lessons. Our parents and grandparents got "it" way worse than my generation did.

Skaters on board with park upgrade

Give the people a place to skate legally. Most of you probably don't remember the Wesco fiasco of the early 1990's. I do. I rode a Vision skateboard to school most of my Jr. High tenure. A legal place to ride cuts back on property and personal damages as a whole. The so-called "alternative" sports are mainstream now. Give those kids an outlet. Invest in the youth of all ages. It's money well spent.

KU professor says Illinois crackdown on texting while driving can be example for local law enforcement

I drive around Lawrence daily for my job, and my vehicle is taller than most cars on the road. You would NOT believe the number of people I see texting and driving every day. It's terrifying.....
