As final deadline approaches, Greyhound still without permanent bus stop location

Use the train depot. There is a large area to the east that could be paved. It already has a waiting area. That way that building gets used more.

KU has very few undocumented immigrant students compared with other Kansas schools

You agree John and David. I am vexed that we allow this to happen. But, that they pay in state tuition. Americans from other states have to pay out of state tuition. Aren't illegal immigrants "out of state".

Editorial: Noise is not progress

Can someone post the agreement letter they want businesses to sign? I would like to learn what they are demanding.

Editorial: Sidewalk repair

Does this ordinance also include all the old brick sidewalks? Do they have to go back brick? Like in old west Lawrence?
That could be expensive!!

City moves forward with plan to make residents pay for sidewalk repair

So does this mean all the homeowners in the older neighborhoods need to pull up and rebuild their brick side walks also? They do gal under the same regulations?

Current zoning could add 6,000 more apartments to Lawrence

Carol i would love for you to prove me wrong. Please share with me the proof that your statement is true. I have worked in the construction world for 20 years. I know for a fact your are wrong. Douglas county KS has brought on more of the of the international building codes then any other county in the state.

Current zoning could add 6,000 more apartments to Lawrence

For the past 6 months I have had to live in one of the Stultz built apartments. I am embarrassed for Lawrence that we allow such cheaply built apartments.
Lawrence has such tight building and energy codes for single family homes. But, these apartments are built so poorly. The air conditioner isn't strong enough to cool the back of my apartment. So my bed is in my living room. I am the first one to live in this unit. The lament on the front of the cabinets was coming off when I moved in. Because the cabinets are so cheap. The towel bar won't stay on the wall. There is a switch in the bedroom for a light, but no light. The Windows don't seal shut so they fog up. That's just a few tings.
Ii am glad our city is truly concerned about the construction of housing our citizens live in. But, they are so narrowly focused on making homes more energy efficient they forgot to see if driving the price up is worth it for a buyer. We need affordable housing. So people don't have to live in apartments. Let's look at what regulations on housing are doing to the price of housing. Plus look at the lack of regulations on apartments.
That way more people can buy a home and get them out of these unregulated, poorly built apartments.

Speed humps and traffic-calming circles to be installed in some Lawrence neighborhoods

Great idea Kevin! Plus, it's a less expensive solution!

I do have one question for Mr. Holyrod. Aren't you exhausted from being such a negative person? After all these years of reading all your negative posts I am tired. If Lawrence is such a bad place please just move. Find a place that makes you happy. Life is short.

Fix-It Chick: Consider installing solar panels on your home

I understand that Westar also charges customers with solar panels more.
So, your return on you investment now takes 20 years instead of 12. That's if you purchase the panels. I heard it's much longer depending on your lease.

Being a realtor I can say that Ray is correct. Home buyers can have issues with taking over someone else's lease. It's the same idea as a pool. Most people just want to enjoy a pool not own it.
