Bicyclist injured in accident

I live in Lawrence and have a cabin at Lone Star which I go to frequently. My biggest complaint is that some bicyclists don't wear clothing that makes them so that they can be seen. For me it is not an issue to slow down, pull over and share the road with bicycle riders. It is an issue when they wear dark clothing....I even saw (just barely) a guy with a camo outfit on.
As the days get shorter visibility is even more important.

Recent rains delay some Lawrence road construction projects

The City could pay for all of these projects if they would put police with radar on Inverness from Wakarusa to Bob Billings. Troubles me because Quail Run is back in session and these speeders are all talking on their cellphone or texting as they zip down Inverness.

Lawhorn's Lawrence: Three decades of defending and judging those in Lawrence's justice system

I've had the good fortune of knowing Randy for the past 10 years. I've found him to be intelligent, thoughtful and considerate.
My guess is that most of the haters here are people who were on the opposite side of his decision. Face it, you either leave a courtroom happy and relieved or pissed and resentful. And generally fairness is in the eye of the beholder.
And personally I prefer a judge who is and has things under control vs. one who doesn't.

Third child dies after car accident in Jefferson County

This whole thing sickens me. I know the grandparents and they are truly very kind and gracious people. I spoke with the grandmother and what she talked about was how much joy these children brought to the world in the very short period that they were on earth.
I can't believe those of you who want to criminally charge the mother. You are so hell bent on placing blame that you seem to revel in the fact that the mother should continue to be punished (as if re-living the event isn't enough). My guess is she hasn't recovered enough to even been told about her childrens' demise. So which one of you self-righteous finger pointers volunteers to tell her?
There isn't a parent out there who at sometime forgot to do or did something that endangered their child (children). Please pray for this family as they truly deserve it.

No one injured in boating emergency at Clinton Lake

No matter the circumstances 5 families avoided a tragedy.
Cowboy, bearded_gnome and gccs14r you think this is funny and assume that there was alcohol involved. Unless you have psychic powers and know something no one else does there was no mention of alcohol being related to this accident. I can only assume you are basing your comments on your own personal experience and behavior.
You are the ones I would call Stupid, Stupid, Stupid.
