Mars Inc. to expand candy-making plant in Kansas

Try more like $15 to $30. Wages are so low in Lawrence and prices are so high. Fuel is $.20 cheaper everywhere else than Lawrence.

What kind of food item or cuisine is missing from downtown?

How about a breakfast place that is open at 5am. Nothing is open in Lawrence then except chains.

Editorial: Lecompton focus

Our history is the only thing that we can't lose, like our high school, grocery store, restaurant, and now we are losing our post office. Our history good or bad we have to keep it.

Twinkie manufacturer Hostess moves to liquidate after crippling strike

Interstate Bakery has been in trouble for some time now I was suprised they lasted this long. Hostess will be bought up by Bimbo or Flowers bakery,but the bread division will not be around. The company was wanting an 8% pay cut from the union, but that would of not saved the bakery, just make it last a little bit longer so it could break up the company into smaller companies. Twinkies and Ho Ho's will still be around just another company

What is your favorite barbecue joint?

Hickory Hut in salina, Guys and Mae's and The Pizza parlor in Topeka, Ok Joe's in KC. Never liked Gates or Bryants or Dickey's too greasy. Famous Dave's is good, but tastes the same where ever you at nation wide

Do you support doubling traffic infraction fines on Kansas Highway 10 between Lawrence and Johnson County?

The problem with K10 is it was not built right. The median needs to be deeper to direct crossing traffic more in line with the roadway. I had a flat tire with a semi on that hiway and the way it is built it pulls you into the other lane. Just look at I 70 west of topeka.

Midwest officials explore passenger rail expansion

Where trains make sense is not going to major aircenters but to small towns. I run amtrak from lawrence to garden city for $ 50. To fly there its $ 230 by way of denver. You can drive it for $50 but you sleep on the train. What Amtrak needs to do is forget about the major cities and just service the small towns. Fly to Wichita is $ 200 through KCI. Lawrence to Wichita would be about $30 and sleep while you travel.

Do you support the National Transportation Safety Board's recommendation banning all cellphone uses while driving?

So what's the differents with being on the phone and driving or eating a cheeseburger and driving. Some people can't walk and chew gum, so if you are in an accident while on the phone not paying attention while driving then you are at fault. Be responsible for your actions.
