How about the board members elect to undergo similar criminal checks too.

Homeless shelter seeks $725,000 loan from city

They're realizing they can't pay or their finances are going to be real tight. Even 5% interest is generous... but hey, City's got lots of money right? Just raise the taxes!

Opinion: ‘Other’ Christians need to speak up

Jesus said "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." For me this means (in current social norm terms) "If you're perfect, then how about you start judging everyone?" ... It is not my place or other Catholics to judge. Now you understand why I am non-practicing. Your statement contradicts the true meaning of love. God hates no one.

Opinion: ‘Other’ Christians need to speak up

I am a non practicing Catholic. I only take a few messages from the bible. Be a good neighbor, treat others the way you would want to be treated, etc.
The message of love everyone conflicts with the anti homosexual ideology carried by radical Christians. If I face a God when I die, I would rather want to be judged by how I treated others rather than rendering judgement unfairly. This isn't just Christians though. Any ideological group will have its fair share of radicals who end up spoiling the image for the sane people.

City seeking volunteers for snow shoveling program

I went to college in Iowa where it tends to snow every 3 days. Lawrence isn't too far off from their performance. Generally the first day the roads will have hard, packed gray snow and by the 2nd day most of it will have melted. Live with it or get a performance snow tire and not worry about it.

Lawrence Public Library selected for "Super Wi-Fi" pilot

Not true. LTE networks operate on 700MHz and can push out +50Mbit/s easily, it just depends on how much of a carrier chunk you want to use. The more frequencies, the higher throughput. There are also efficiencies in place that allow thousands of cellphones to connect to these networks that run on low frequencies. TDMA was used for 2G and 3G, MIMO is a more popular method for increasing bandwidth in a pinch.

Brownback to participate in ceremony commemorating 50th anniversary of March on Washington

Back then, the Democrats were the racists and Republicans were progressive. MLK was, a Republican.

Lawrence city commissioners narrowly approve ban on porch couches

I'm so glad our commissioners are doing important things, such as banning couches on porches. Now the real war against the existence of porches can begin. Those wooden things can catch on fire too!
