Plumbing work determined to be cause of Saturday duplex fire; damage estimated at $150,000

I always appreciate all the experts we have in the Lawrence community. It astounds me the number of people we have in the great community who are subject matter experts in all sorts of fields.

Arnie, please forward your investigation results to Eve Tolefree, Division Chief Emergency Medical Services Division, (785) 830-7009. I'm sure she would appreciate your uniquely qualified point of view.

That said, a simple solder shield might have prevented this, but we don't know all the facts with what was reported so I can't pass judgement on the DIYer.

Talk of a new dog park and a $10 per year dog license requirement for Lawrence; Quonset hut debate in East Lawrence on hold; city manager search update

I do use the dog park at Clinton Lake on occasion. My dogs are trained to come when called and I think the acreage out there is outstanding as is the scenery. I will say one thing, however. Anyone who uses the excuse of the location of anything in a town the size of Lawrence as being "inconvenient" needs to get out of town a little more often.

Unless your only mode of transportation is your own two feet, there is nothing in this town (including Clinton Lake) that is in an inconvenient locale. Or if you think it is, maybe move to Baldwin or Overbrook.

The only thing that is inconvenient in this town is the location of some people's common sense.

Appeals board questions Douglas County codes enforcement policy

I don't think the word "constructive" is the appropriate descriptor in most of the comments I see.

Thank god that Lawrence is big enough to have a paper with a website for comments or you people would have so much time on your hands you might do something constructive.

Lawrence police: 'Dumpster diving' thief flees, drops TV in street

Your second sentence is extremely contradictory verging on oxymoronic.

Doug Compton's latest project and the debate over downtown parking; high tech traffic solutions presented to City Hall

Find me a town the size of Lawrence anywhere that requires paid parking at night for similar parking and who has meter maids patrolling to make sure the parking is paid.

This isn't a very well thought out protest, David.

Kansas City man, 23, pleads not guilty to attempted first-degree murder, related charges

They will release the photos once the plea has been finalized or a trial begins. This is consistent with procedure.
