Pumpkin time

The Schaake's pumpkin patch is the best, although the one at the Louisburg Cider Mill looks pretty good, too, just never been to it. Just don't try to do what a lot of places are doing now and start charging admission. We'd hate to miss our yearly trip to Schaake's but I refuse to pay admission as well as purchasing pumpkins, jelly, veggies, etc... Some of them in and around the metro are $8-10 per person. Crazy, man.

Latex gloves? Did they not request that the bras be laundered before donation?

Rending of the Lawrence Public Library, as seen from the Outdoor Aquatic Center on Kentucky Street.

Rending? Shoot, I was hoping that they had torn it apart. I think you meant rendering, but you get an "A" for effort.

KU students designate SafeBus as preferred ride

"Sitting near the front is Joshua, 19. Asked to describe a typical weekend night, he says: “We just randomly walk around, drink a lot and call SafeBus when we have to go home. That’s pretty much it, really.”

So the city condones underage drinking? I'm glad these kids are getting home safely, but at what point does the city move into the realm of contributing. They certainly aren't buying them beer, but they are giving them a place to drink. If think this is a great idea, are you also supportive of the parents that allow their underage children to have parties at their house using the argument that at least they are in the house and safe?

Unfair plan

Then more trash companies in the area would greatly benefit you. More competition equals more choices and lower prices.

Unfair plan

Why is the city of Lawrence involved in trash collection anyway? It seems it could be handled much better by a private company or better yet, a number of private companies competing against one another to keep costs down. In this way if there was enough demand for recycling, the trash companies could decide on their own if they wished to offer this service and the people that did not want to pay for this service, could simply hire a different company or elect a different service. This seems to be much ado about nothing. Judging by the number of "important" people standing around in reflective vests in all these pictures in the paper I imagine that the amount of money that has been spent so far "looking into" this possibility would probably stagger you. But then, that's what happens when government gets involved where it shouldn't.

Sound Off: Why do some traffic lights have longer yellows than others?

Absolutely. When my dad was teaching me to drive he told to assume that every other driver out there is the worst driver in the world and plan accordingly, drive defensively. It's that simple. Assume the other guy is an idiot and you'll be fine. That's a good general life bit of advice.
