Fritzel breaks silence on proposed Rock Chalk Park deal, says he won't profit from the KU sports complex

You are just like 80% of the other commentors here: entitled. You slander Fritzel for looking out for the best interest of his company and family's well-being all while keeping your hand out waiting for YOUR gift. And the irony is you are typing this at in the comments of an article where Fritzel is DONATING MONEY TO KU AND THE CITY OF LAWRENCE!! So hypocritical and it makes me sick.

Your motto: What has Fritzel, Lawrence, us, done for YOU lately???

City commissioners approve $800,000 worth of work to support area around Poehler Lofts project

Well there you go, the fact that you refer to them as "Compton's projects" says that you are making it personal instead of rational. Your arguments continue to weaken as the true motivation for your "opinions" show through. It is ok to dislike someone but that doesn't mean it justifies your blind dislike for the work he/she does for Lawrence.

Developer seeking $800,000 in public improvements to aid multimillion-dollar East Lawrence art gallery

You, like many others on this board, are making it personal. I find it trite that you had to throw in there "rich kid from Wichita" as if it had ANYTHING TO DO with this situation. Now I'll make it personal and see if you feel it is productive.

Does your back hurt all day walking around with that chip on your shoulder. For the record, guys like you are the reason that this country is far too interested in complaining about problems and trying not to offend anyone instead of getting your hands dirty with WORK and fixing them. Grow up and grow a pair.

New breakfast spot, The Roost, slated to open in former Milton's location

Bits like that? Thought it was trite myself. I enjoy reading these posts a lot but that was an unnecessary low blow. Lots of people would say that about all Kansans if they were outsiders looking in...Doesn't help that I grew up in western Kansas and heard plenty of this growing up from the big, bad "Easterners".

Town Talk: Proposed roundabout for Ninth and New Hampshire to get hearing; renderings for new multi-story building downtown; Ninth Street improvements planned

The link to the additional elevation views of the NH building does not seem to work. Anyone else having trouble?

KU relying more on revenue from tuition, fees

The real problem here is the State. Not the University. KU is forced to cut and cut and cut and people are legitimately upset when they are the ones that see the funding cut. But, what are the administrators supposed to do? The State gives them less than any of the other State-funded Universities but we are the flagship University?

The problem is there are too many mouths to feed in a state with a very low tax base. Pitt State, Wichita State, Baker, etc are draining the funds we have. A line will eventually have to be drawn, there is only so much money to go around and what? Do we really want to bring down our best institutions just so PSU, WSU, Baker, etc can stay afloat?

KU hiring campaign under way

Cool, thanks gdubs. Saw the article just now, looks like a great building and a great asset for our University. Now on to the architecture school, we could use an expansion for sure.

KU hiring campaign under way

1. The engineering school is about to build the new building because they are growing. They need the space and the State is helping to fund the new initiative to graduate more engineers in the state.

2. Aside from business schools, I would venture to say engineering schools generate the most in private donations of any department on campus. Plus, a solid engineering school often has a great trickle-down affect on the other departments.

3. Renzo Piano is designing a new business school on campus? If so, that would be fantastic. Any idea where I can get info on that?

4. I say all this as a KU Arch grad, so I wish we could steal some of the table scraps from them.
