I think it is very sad that these poor children had to have parents such as these people!

About 15,000 Douglas County voters to have new polling places

Yes, but it is hard to vote at a place that is never open. Personally speaking, I believe that Theatre Lawrence was a super poor choice for a voting location. Sure, they went along with it so they could get the money for being a location for voting. I live in the nearby area and I believe that I should be allowed to vote at another location. Maybe it is time to stop supporting Theatre Lawrence completely. Do not go to their plays, operas, or whatever!

Brownback can't be ordered to appoint judge, Kansas Supreme Court says

Don't ask me how someone like Brownback is able to become governor. Somtimes you have to remember though, this is Kansas.

100 years ago: With National Guard called away, Lawrence plans to start rifle club

I'd love to see Lawrence finally have a rifle club. My question is simply why can't we also have a handgun club.

Kansas Supreme Court upholds death sentence of man who killed Greenwood County sheriff

The death sentence in Kansas is really kind of a bad joke. Kansas hasn't carried out the death penalty in roughly 50-60 years.

Parents of baby abandoned in dumpster charged with disorderly conduct at Perry Lake

I used to live at Country Club on Sixth street. You want to talk about a dump that place was it. It is too bad that the child doesn't have any better parents than that. This is definately a case where SRS needs to step in and find a better home for the child.

Four injured after Lawrence police chase leads to crash south of turnpike exit

Maybe it is time to go to a no-chase policy. Lets face it, there have been too many unnescessary accidents. A few years ago, the Wichita Police Department's chief of police Rick Stone attended a seminar concerning police involved car chases and was very impressed by what he heard. Eventhough, the suspect may have gotten away at the time, he or she was later apprehended and arrested and prosecuted. I believe this is the type of approach the local and state police should consider adopting. Sure, the perpetrator needs to apprehended but at the same time the safety of the public must be taken into consideration as well.
