Downtown Lawrence grocery store in the works for 11th and Massachusetts

Great news! Lil' Jimmy will be designing the store - cool vibes ahead!

WIth Lil' JL hip hoppin' Jim Sr's vision, we are rappin' with today's homeslice generation.

Good to see a grocery store come back to that location. Waaay back in the day, the original cool daddies bagged your groceries and ran them out to Miss Daisy's comfort ride.

Ask Jim what he called bagging groceries back then: 'PACKAGE PLEASE' was belted over the intercom to bring more bag boys running from the aisle. Or sackers, he hated that term for kids that would place your groceries into paper bags and carry them to the car. It must have reminded him of the home office over there on Iowa Street and the family time there. Checkers was then born and has great prices to this day!

We the a JL day, and the a lil' JL day exactly 6 months later to celebrate these hard working grocery store stalwarts. And let;s get Mrs Lewis, lil' JL's mom back for the parade!

Love these guys, their good selection, fresh meats and produce, and weekly specials. Saves us all money! And Bob, cull your produce rack!!

Chick-fil-A files plans to build restaurant on South Iowa Street; city sets details for ice rink grand opening

God Bless Chick-fil-A. Well run company, with customer service second-to-none (try it before you even attempt a credible comment), quality, good value food, and a diverse employee base (yes, hiring all walks of life). Realists get the breath of inclusiveness and reward a top shelf company with continued success and growth.

God will not be mocked.

City struggles to interpret Wicked Broadband's finances as it considers $300k loan guarantee

Good gravy! There is not a private sector company that would consider any agreement with a partner or vendor that would not review the associated financials. And base a decision to move forward without this info. This is an IQ test.

Local couples must wait to learn extent of same-sex marriage rights

It is not a sin to call sin a sin. The verse you allude to is often taken out of context. We can judge sin, and deviation from God's plan. Adultery is a sin, as is fornication, etc. Homosexualy is also a sin, and is now pushed on all of us, despite those that practice it saying it is 'private' and 'none of our business'. Then make it none of our business by keeping it to yourself. Jesus did die on the cross for our sin, but not intentional,. perpetual sin. That is on us, and not covered by the sacrifice Christ made on the Cross. If we sin intentionally, we send Christ back to the Cross over and over. That sin will not be forgiven. Check out the writings of Paul for the true meaning of the scripture.

God bless us all.

Local couples must wait to learn extent of same-sex marriage rights

Context is your friend God does not/did not condone multiple wives, and those that chose this path paid a price.

You appear to be the one that has not read the whole Bible and picks and chooses verses, out of context, to find a false conclusion.

Read the Bible cover to cover to understand God's plan. In a nutshell, all have fallen short of the glory of God, and his plan for redemption is available to all who will believe.

Federal judge refuses to block Kansas abortion rules

You said: "The research PROVES that humans don't actually reach full self awareness until minimum age 5."

Can't tell from your post if you have children or not, but guessing you don't. Having held the face of my newborn in my hands and looked into his. and then her, eyes. one realizes how wrong abortion is.

Try losing a child at any age, even at birth. You mention "self awareness"? How about the awareness of the parent? You cannot begin to experience the grief, and I wish that on no one.

Becoming a parent also impacts one's view of abortion. I have eternal regret for children I will never know due to selfish decisions. Having kids will change your mind and leave you with an unshakeable sorrow if abortion was a 'choice' you made in the past.

City approves Menards store next to Home Depot at 31st and Iowa streets

Lawrence finally got one right. Great store that actually puts things on sale. WAY more variety in inventory. HD and Menards can easily coexist, and the savvy shopper will reap the benefits of playing one off the other. Odds are that you will spend more money at Menards than HD in the end, and save significantly.

Word to the wise: if buying more than a few sticks of lumber, hit up your local lumber yard and ask them to meet and beat the big box prices. Normally they will and you will get better quality to boot.

As a side note. yesterday I was in HD, and the checkout lady 1) Never greeted me, 2) Replied 'Yup' when I said 'Thank you' after the purchase was complete, and 3) Never offered to call for help with loading a substantial quantity of materials into my truck. which is a service that is part of their 'customer service'. Money walks.....

Editorial: Privacy lost

So Bush started it, Obama continues it....

If Obama can do no wrong, that implies that Bush started something worthwhile and Obama is extending it? Or were Bush's policies flawed, and as Obama promised 'change', does that mean real change? Then that means Bush was wrong, and his policies should be rejected and undone. They why are they being embraced? .

By all appearances, he not only endorses the Bush policies, he has extended them. Drones, more wire tapping, etc. On my what to do, what to do. Will you Liberals denounce Bush's policies, and therefore Obama's? Or will you denounce Bush, but give Obama a pass for continuing and furthering the Bush agenda?

TIme to take a side.....

Former area Boy Scouts react to decision allowing gay scouts

Good point - 'why do we need to know a person's sexual preference'? I say WE DON'T. Yet gays continue to push their agenda into everyone's face. Keep it to yourself, we don't want/need to know., Your 'team' is the one that stirs the pot, over and over. Why? Mind your own while the rest of us mind ours.

Slow down Brokeback, and keep it in the bedroom. Otherwise, let's open all doors and knock down all barriers. Girls have to be allowed into the Boy Scouts per your arguments - think about it.....there....get it? No? Try again.
