Longtime downtown restaurant reopens, plans to add college arcade; several downtown businesses set to close

Quinton's is definitely not the same as it was before. It isn't bad, it is definitely improved from the change that happened a year or so ago. The food was good but it definitely wasn't "Quinton's". The potato soup was definitely tasted from scratch but didn't satisfy my craving for Quinton's potato soup or Wisconsin cheese soup. I think a lot of the "loyal following" will change now because the menu is so far removed from what it was originally.

Lawrence Humane Society plans for construction of new animal shelter

Completely agree about the emergency vet - something our town desperately needs, especially since Lawrence is such an animal friendly town.

Lawrence Humane Society plans for construction of new animal shelter

This was my thought too, I would like clarification on this. LHS always presented as a "no kill" shelter, but I am speculating that the 14% is from euthanizing ill or injured animals and they are hoping to reduce that rate by having a new and improved medical facility to help treat them. My understanding is that "no kill" means that animals aren't euthanized simply because of over capacity. I hope LHS clarifies why they have that rate of animals killed, because finding out they have a 14% euthanasia rate when they are supposed to be a no-kill shelter is going to be a huge violation of trust with the community.

Lawrence City Commission to review plans for another two-lane roundabout

Why don't they use some of that money to fix Wakarusa near the entrance to Marisco's before they spend money on another unnecessary roundabout.

From domestic battery to accusations of attempted murder: the criminal history of man accused of leaving baby in dumpster

Are they going to continue to give him probation until he actually kills someone? Its very fortunate that he didn't kill that precious baby, I hope this attempted first degree murder charge sticks and he gets sentenced for a long time.

No arrest yet in case of 9-month-old girl found in trash

I'm hoping its because they are being very careful on deciding how to charge him (or her) and not that there won't be charges at all. Although if they could prove it was a medical issue that led to confusion to cause someone to put her there, I know I would feel a lot better knowing that someone didn't do it intentionally.

Longtime downtown restaurant changes owners, temporarily closed for renovations

Quinton's needs to change its menu back to the way it used to be. Quinton's used to be my comfort food but the menu changed about a year ago and I have tried a couple of times but its not the same and doesn't satisfy my Quinton's craving so I (and the rest of my family) have stopped going. No more Wisconsin Cheese soup, the bread has changed, several beloved sandwiches removed from the menu and the prices increased. I feel a little hope with the ownership change that maybe the menu will go back to what it was and will give it one more chance.

Large pet supply chain files plans for store near Sixth and Wakarusa; Lawrence gasoline prices still the highest in the state

I just wish Pet World would open a little satellite store on the westside, kind of like the one temporary one they had during the renovations. I feel like the lose a lot of customers because everyone from the northwest corner of Lawrence has to go to the southeast quadrant to get pet supplies -- Petco, Petsmart and Pet World are all in that area. We go out of our way to go to Pet World, I think they would bring a lot of business with a small store in the northwest quadrant.
