Original suspect in girl's murder dies of apparent suicide as case about to be revisited

Just a curiosity, but I wonder how close a DNA profile would be between brothers.

Signs of change at south Iowa Street movie theater; update on tenant for old Round Corner Drug space; west Lawrence restaurant closes

I only comment on this Bob because I used to fly for work A LOT. From 1994 through around 2003. Considering the world events during that time frame I can tell you that there was a big difference between a movie house and an airport lounge.

I totally agree that drinking to excess at a movie is ridiculous. I can also tell you that some people have a problem with flying under normal situations. I myself don't. But you can't blame the general population for having a drink before boarding a plane. In that roughly decade of time I think I saw maybe 2 people that had been over served. (excluding any trips made to and from Las Vegas)

Letter: Brain immaturity

A teacher shouldn't have to defend himself over a bad grade. You supervise ex-cons and promote the anarchist symbolism? No wonder the system you work in is in the crapper.

Sustainability board votes to work on proposal to reduce plastic bag use

Thank you Fred. Thank you for your non-stop devotion to making every other poster on this website look like a genius by comparison.

Thank you for your service Fred.

I would be happy if they'd ban them right now. I have so many reusable grocery bags around the house I can't keep track of them.... easily 30, and they were all give aways at one point in time. Never paid a dime for any of them.

Lawrence City Commission to review parking and sidewalk closures for Eldridge Hotel expansion

Carol.....715 Restaurant is the last store before the construction area. It is 3 store fronts and 5 parking spaces, or 82 feet, from the mid-street crosswalk. If this set up were to "force you into the street", I'd think maybe anywhere down town is too dangerous for you.

People in Europe are pointing and laughing out loud right now......

Letter: Not ‘experiments’

To those that would like to ban round abouts because the drivers entering them don't know how to use them or are texting or are otherwise distracted. That is not the round about's fault.

Just to be clear.

Parking questions loom for Here @ Kansas apartment project as high-tech parking company files for bankruptcy, stops work on project

I'll man up. That's a fair comment. I didn't see that caveat when I researched the price.

Regardless, that doesn't preclude the need for parking, wouldn't you agree?

To the respondents to Dorothy's comments here: Her comments are what is known on the world wide web as "Trolls". An internet troll is defined as "One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument". Her comments are not meant to be substantive (ˈsəbstən(t)iv,səbˈstan(t)iv/ 1....having a firm basis in reality and therefore important, meaningful, or considerable.) They are not.

Every other apartment complex or living quarters on campus has parking. Jayhawk Towers has parking, the Greek houses have parking, the scholarship halls have parking, even the "poor" students in the dorms have parking. All on campus. All falling under the same conditions that Dorothy deems necessary to NOT require parking. With the exception that she's deemed the future residents of this particular near campus apartment complex "rich" and therefor, in her mind, not requiring the same necessities as residents of the other housing facilities around campus. Which, on it's face, is ludicrous and without merit. And, potentially hateful.

The four bedroom apartments leasing in Champaign, Ill are going for around $1000/mo. That's $250 per tenant. Rich? The dorms cost more. And not by a little bit.

Her comments are made here (and in most other stories) as an attempt to lash out, not to provide informative or thought provoking rhetoric.
