New task force to study retail in downtown Lawrence

Downtown and Lawrence as a whole needs a regional draw. The Legends does $1 billion a year in retail sales. The City of Lawrence does $1 billion a year in retail sales.

We need to be competitive. Sleepy old stuff doesn't cut it.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, county officials working on new election-fraud regulations

I want to buy a 12 pack of Coors - so they ask for my i.d.
I want to buy a pack of smokes - so they ask for my i.d.
I want to buy some cold medication - so they ask for my i.d.
I want to see the doctor - so they ask for my i.d.
I want to buy a gun - so they ask for my i.d.
I want to vote for a candidate - so they ask for my i.d.

If the democrats didn't commit so much voter fraud nationwide, this law wouldn't be needed. I see why all you pinko commies complain.

Meeting on new Kansas abortion clinic regulations rescheduled for Thursday

The average taxes paid per person per year is $13,097
The average cost per unintended pregnancy $9,000.

In the long run, it pays to let babies live as they will give far more back to society in taxes throughout their lifetime.

Planned Parenthood sues Kansas officials over funding

I've never made that argument. The illegals are sustaining our Christian culture.

Town Talk: Dillons still working on new design for South Mass store; speed cushions coming to streets near KU; seat belt fine to drop from $100 to $10

You probably don't recall the hassle because there wasn't a traceable timeline, but I bet money it was a hassle. This is Lawrence. But you're right about too many gray areas. The facts of the matter are: Lawrence used to be a good city to work with when it came to getting things worked out and done. Now, things are done and delayed just to justify a job. The City government tripled in size during the 1990's. It hasn't shrunk a bit since, especially since the construction industry took a nose dive. With all the workers, you'd think they could get things done faster.

The government likes taxpayers. Planned Parenthood removes future taxpayers from the planet. We won't make a dent in the trillions of dollars of Obama's debt without future taxpayers, just as Al Gore would've beat GW if democrats hadn't aborted their offspring 18 years prior to that election.

So suck it up and deal with reality. The "it's all about me, me, me" era has come to an end.

This Dillons business was first reported November 5th, 2010, but discussions had already started with the City prior to that date. It is June 27th. That is 234 DAYS!?!?

234 DAYS?!?!

Sure....Lawrence hasn't changed a bit! Business unfriendly, as usual.

I bet it will be a long while before Dillons tries to do something in this town again, and who could blame them?

What's the matter with Lawrence?

Texas governor may make GOP run

As a registered Democrat, I would vote for Mr. Perry if he ran.
