Pair of restaurants proposed for location near Sixth Street Wal-Mart; City Hall tensions rise over East Lawrence proposal

ā€œIā€™m trying not to get angry about this.ā€ "Farmer did not do much to contain his anger about the proposal." I think Commissioners would be better off not bringing pretend emotion into the meetings. Petulance?

Pedestrian injured after being struck by vehicle at Seventh and Vermont streets

First time I've seen "citation issued" for hitting a cyclist/pedestrian. I think we need a focus on respecting our crosswalks. Even while waiting at a red light, cars often stop with wheels in crosswalk, or pull through crosswalk and turn right.

City makes surprise payment on Rock Chalk Park infrastructure fees

Whats a million dollars between friends? It might be time to go to a full-time elected mayor + commission. Our current system of cycling through commission figureheads puts far to much power in the hands of city staff. The staff outlives/manipulates many commissions and make the long term relationships with "some" developers.
