Mattie is one of the sweetest, kindest people that I have ever met! Thanks for sharing this story about her.

Two juveniles taken into custody following Saturday incident at Dollar Tree

You are absolutely right! I can say from personal experience that if you let them suffer the consequences early they will (most likely---not 100% for every kid) turn around.

Lawrence Community Shelter moves into new home

No, my husband and I are sensible people. YOU are an idiot. (see above response to you) Have you never heard of "neighborhood watches"? The whole purpose of that is to notice things in your neighborhood out of the ordinary. What is going on is not "ordinary" and not only my husband and I will be watching but other neighbors as well.

And BTW....I am (as you said) doing absolutely nothing wrong, inappropriate, or wrong by driving in that area or noting who and how many people are walking there.

Lawrence Community Shelter moves into new home

Do YOU live in this neighborhood? I have lived here for 34 years. And I walk in that area. Of course I'm going to check it out and see what's going on. Most "neighbors" know what occurs in their neighborhood.

I am not opposed to helping those who help themselves. What I am opposed to is the fact that the shelter STILL accepts those who have been drinking and the location. It was stated by many that this would happen.....~some~ at the shelter would not stay there. They would wander back and forth into town. I have no problem with someone going into town by walking. What is the purpose of carrying a large backpack of stuff??? Don't trust the other people at the shelter enough to leave it there but we are suppose to believe they are completely trustworthy???!!! YOU are an idiot!

Sadly, you are probably right.

Hubby called on his way into town this morning. He saw three more walking towards town.

Lawrence Community Shelter moves into new home

I live in the area. As I was walking yesterday around 5pm, I had someone pass me headed towards Lawrence who I'm going to assume was homeless (backpack, walking, heavily clothed---the typical "walker" in this area doesn't dress that way OR carry a heavy backpack).

Later that evening I needed to go into Lawrence. On my return, I passed another person walking (dressed similarly with backpack and sack) who was headed back into Lawrence. I decided to just drive up near the new shelter. There was a person sitting on the curb on Franklin Rd (also heavily dressed).

My comment to my spouse when I got home, "It's the first day and it's started already." Those of you who think that there won't be some of the homeless roaming the area are WRONG!

Man charged with aggravated assault in pistol-whipping at pool hall

I'm old enough to remember the Yuk Down (and the Yuk Up). Must be too old for Shenanigans. LOL

What do you think of the idea to build an ‘outer loop’ highway for $2 billion?

I traveled the new 59 this past Wednesday evening going from Lawrence to Baldwin. From the junction of Hwy 10 to the Baldwin exit it took me about 8 minutes. I counted 86 vehicles traveling towards Lawrence. Three of those were semi's. This was a little after 5:00pm.

Family trying to find dog that bit woman

Please don't blame the dog. It may not normally be a biter. Sounds like it attacked the woman's dog (natural dog aggression) and then the woman got bit (probably trying to separate the dogs).

However, it IS the owner's fault for not having his dog under control (on a leash).

Suspect in two Lawrence convenience store robberies arrested and charged

I didn't know there was a Gennessee St. in Lawrence. I thought maybe there was a typo error and it was suppose to be Tennessee St. The G and the T keys are under/over each other.
