Massachusetts Street triple murder suspect appears in court alongside 2 other defendants

Serious question - why is a suspected murderer of 3 people not in handcuffs during a court appearance? 'Shackled' (definition partially applies) but no handcuffs?

"Grenell had made derogatory comments about the personal appearances of Hillary Clinton; former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright; and Callista Gingrich, the wife of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.'

No clear answers as Lawrence City Commission looks for cuts to the city's budget

Here are some fun roundabout facts:

• According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there is on average a 40% decrease in all accidents and a 90% drop in fatal ones when a traffic intersection is replaced by a roundabout.

• Washington leads the states in roundabouts, followed by Colorado, California, Florida and Kansas

• France has over 30,000 British-style roundabouts; the most in the world.

Roundabouts are awesome. Hands down superior to stop signs/traffic lights - which are nothing but pure time sucks.

Ugh, more hodge podge 'retail' that makes zoning and planning look like amatuer hour. Having lived there for 40+ years and then elsewhere, this once unique city has lost its way. Storage units on 23rd. Ghetto.

Mr. Holroyd. do you still live in Lawrence?

"Excuse me, I ordered the chicken parm and got the chicken parm."

Trump is doing just what he said he would do.. Dems should have run a better candidate - we all would have benefited. Now we live with what was obviously going to happen.
