Closing the loop: Local coalition working for completion of the final miles of continuous trail system around Lawrence

As neighbors and KCMetro area friends learn of Lawrence's 23mile alternative transportation system, about 3/4 complete, the amazed responses are overwhelmingly positive.

When possible, attaching a path to, for instance, the N. 2nd Street bridge to span the Law R. will be an incredible link in the system, connecting many addition miles for people who wheel and ride bikes and walk and run; 'great to see that comment in the article.

Proud to be part of a city that prioritizes community amenities such as The Loop!

Keeping an eye on the possibility of a new west Lawrence grocery store; building project slated for west Lawrence business park

It's appropriate to note Rainbow International provides emergency services to mitigate flood, mold, fire and smoke damage which might otherwise devastate people, homes and businesses. Referring to what many regard as miracle work as a "carpet cleaner" is inappropriate. Other businesses residing in the neighborhood - plumbing contractors, insurance underwriters, financiers, veterinary clinic, dentists, Montessori school, dance school and many others - will likely benefit from and wholeheartedly welcome their prospective new neighbor.

Editorial: Kasold questions

There is plenty of tested engineering support of the features posed for the pending Kasold Dr. improvement. Those of us taking a stand, particularly those of us who may oppose a three-lane roadway, would be well-served to be familiar with the ample body of facts, rather than mere unfounded opinion.

Here's the City's link to virtually limitless information regarding transportation design and the direction Lawrence has elected to take, policy-wise:


...Guided by unfounded opinion, we would still be smoking inside Lawrence restaurants and bars, we would still have no South Lawrence Trafficway and [on a dramatic and far grander plane] we would still condone discrimination and institutionalized racial segregation in Lawrence as we did in the 70s and generations prior, etc. ...Back to nuts-and-bolts, we would certainly have no roundabouts around here [where global and local data irrefutably shows the initially disquieting devices to profoundly reduce accidents and improve traffic flow.]

Hopefully, the LJW and any Lawrencian exercising influence and power will be truly informed with regard to the matter at hand. Perhaps the voices of doubt or opposition are unaided by bonafide facts; on the other hand, if facts indeed exist to show the Kasold Dr. proposal to be flawed from a safety or operational standpoint, please make them known.

'Nightmarriage' — funnier than you think

This CTJohnston guy exhibits a combination of Jonathan Swift, Samuel Clemens, Hunt [ok, HuntER S.] Thompson, Phyllis Diller, Erma Bombeck and Anne Lamott. And a subtle hint of Vonnegut. With a pinch of one of the as-of-yet unpublished gospel writers. Ok, never mind all that -- Cicero with a big honkin' squeeze of early 20th Century bicycle horn. Whatev buy it read it man oh man.

Retiring Lied Center director says he's proud of what venue provides for Lawrence

Thanks for your service, Tim, and for the many levels, layers and forms of cultural excellence you've helped facilitate. In the category of "smooth", you have no rival.

City to consider approval of proposed housing development southeast of Sixth and SLT, near Langston Hughes Elementary

@kef104: the only statement you made that is accurate is the reference to "5000 sq feet per lot". The rest is random misinformation.

This and that about Petco, AT&T Wireless store and Ross Dress for Less along South Iowa Street

Everybody knows you just like to use the word, "ensconced", CL. Not that I fault you for it ; ).

Thanks for the update.

Recreation center debate causes commissioner to question 'relevance' of Lawrence Association of Neighborhoods; other notes from last night's Rock Chalk Park meeting

Poolside, please explain how Carter, or any City Commissioner for that matter, "gets a piece of the contract pie". That's a pretty condemning statement, and if it's unfortunately true we need to hear what you believe to be going down. Thanks in advance for your follow-up.

Opinion: Advisory board member backs rec center

Thanks -- great input, jdawson. Your close involvement in allied areas of community work, esp. with P&R, lends a lot of credibility to the points being made by project proponents. Continued good luck with this initiative, which I believe will benefit everyone in Lawrence in some way.
