Police stop two groups of men carrying unconscious women to fraternity homes; call ambulances for alcohol poisoning

Ms Foley's story is indicative of the fear society we live in. Everyone is a threat; we must be ever-vigilant; demand security constantly. and oh yeah, self-importance.

If we need to have enough cops on duty to walk every scared little girl home, we're going to need a lot more money in this community. I think lesson learned; don't be out, alone in that neighborhood, at whatever hour it was, because it makes her feel unsafe.

Kobach's office acknowledges hosting Bible sessions but says worker was not fired for failing to attend

No.. you may not use a state-owned office to host your little imagination party. It gives the appearance that it is sanctioned by the state, and generally makes those who do not conform to feel ostracized.

KDOT planning SLT changes, but funding is far off

I think their redesign of K-10/27th street are necessary, but long before they get around to that, they need to consider a pedestrian bridge. We have miles and miles of wonderful trails, then suddenly dump people out into some of the most dangerous intersections in town. Both, the intersection at the sports fields, as well as the future crossing at Iowa Street, are deadly accidents waiting to happen again.

Another national chicken chain files plans for south Iowa Street; shopping center near 25th and Iowa to undergo major renovations

While I'm all for a Popeyes, and redevelopment of the neighborhood, the intersection of 26th and Iowa is already a HUGE pain to cross or turn from, almost every moment of the day. I hope they'll heavily consider this while drawing up plans, and route that exiting traffic accordingly.

Disrepair of Lawrence’s sidewalks concerns pedestrian-bicycle task force

I think that sidewalks and repair should be included in the roadwork budget. sidewalks are for transportation of citizens, and the sidewalks should be uniform and well maintained. If we leave it to the landowner, we're going to have a patchwork of sidewalks (like we do now) that don't join up correctly, aren't wide enough, aren't strong enough, etc. This is an infrastructure, and is to be provided as part of the government services. Every road built, should have a sidewalk attached, and the upkeep of both should be included in the initial cost.

A potential danger zone for Lawrence's public transit system; restaurant expansion at Sixth and Wakarusa

If I've been paying attention, and I think I have.. the city should privatize the T, then offer massive tax subsidies, and give away the land to the new company in order for them to build a hub. And, if they lose money, we can always give them a loan.

Woman, girl injured in downtown Lawrence hit-and-run

did you not read my comment? I railed on motorists, and then included an obverse side to the traffic situation. I wasn't saying THIS person was jaywalking; the conversation was about pedestrians and traffic safety. There are TONS of pedestrians in the road all of the time, if you're not seeing them, you're a terrible motorist. I'm a motorist, a bicyclist, and a pedestrian; I will share all of my perspectives.
