A look at how smart and how small Lawrence is; large apartment project near KU seeks change in parking standards

Dear Chamber and City,
The word is out about this town. No one wants to come here. We are getting our butts kicked by every other town in the area. Start attracting real jobs, we don't need more retail, we need productive, high paying jobs here. Start making it easy to bring jobs here.

'Embarrassing' road trip

I've heard from many non-football student athletes that this team is cocky and acts like they they are much better than they are. Maybe they should realize, they are not "better than that" and eat some humble pie. Until the players realize they must play harder and smarter than the other team, they will not win much.

Indian tribe, county agree to talk further about North Lawrence property

Because they are going to talk about the casino that isn't going to be built. We should do everything we can to help them bring jobs, tax revenue, etc. to this town.

Man with legal concealed gun had to leave Salina theater

I bet every time you go to the movies or to dinner or anywhere there are at least 50 people, there is someone in the room with a gun. The issue is, is it a licensed person or unlicensed person. If you ban the licensed people, then you are in the room with just the unlicensed people who ignore the law and are probably crazy or just bad guys. I'd rather no one had guns. If a gun free zone can't be guaranteed, I'd rather have a licensed person who could possibly defend me against the bad, crazy people with guns. Very, very few shootings involve licensed people, most incidents involve unlicensed gun carriers.

KU broadcaster David Lawrence to open West Lawrence sports restaurant and bar; update on Limestone pizza restaurant downtown

Zig and Macs was probably overprice but that has a lot to do with location. They had good crowds most of the time until the very end. Food prices reflect a number of expenses, but rent expense is a killer in the food industry. I hope they negotiated well and succeed.

KU broadcaster David Lawrence to open West Lawrence sports restaurant and bar; update on Limestone pizza restaurant downtown

Wow, this is like the 5th place to go into that location. Zig and Mac's was pretty good, why did they fail? It amazes me that people keep trying to make bad locations work. Don't know why it's a bad location, but I wouldn't gamble my money there.

Website encourages investment in Lawrence area

They don't want low wages or polluting industries. They don't want to offer incentives. You can't build it here or there, you can't build it anywhere. (Sorry Dr. Seuss) They want their cake and eat it too! The door is wide open for about 3 companies to move here. The other million don't fit because a person who lives Old West Lawrence thinks it might infringe on this or that. They will go lay down in the middle of Mass St. to protest and the city commission will fold.

I'm with Bob, This wasn't done already? What kind of idiots are running this city. The taxes are too high and we have no industry to support new "productive" jobs that pay well. Even Walmart is beginning to change it's ways and is investing $250 Billion in American goods. The great Satan is going to create jobs here. Some low paying jobs are better than no jobs Are we OK with that? I am, it's a start. Lawrence should learn from them.

Letter: Gun perspective

I'd rather be alive when the police officer arrives. You will find very few incidents of a licensed person committing a violent gun crime and more where that person saved lives or property. So what is the problem?

Sebelius a finalist for Time Person of Year

She should be fired. The healthcare.gov site rollout is an embarrassment of epic proportion.
