Speculation that retired health care executive and Lawrence neighborhood leader both will enter race for Lawrence City Commission

Can you name someone who runs for office that doesn't have an agenda?

A road to better wetlands

Of course I realize that. But the Boyd family has been managing the program for how many years? And when this is remembered it will be Roger Boyd who is credited with securing the money.

The title should have been an Roger Boyd and his 9 Million Dollar Legacy." Of course the Boyd's are happy, they get new land and money to play with.

Question time

The editorial says that, "[t]he working group failed to produce a solid recommendation for consolidation, but the future of ESL programs at Cordley and Hillcrest was an issue the group considered." While this appears to be technically true, it doesn't report on what actually happened. The LJ World's own reporting pointed out that one group put together a report outlining why consolidation (or closing) didn't make sense it East Lawrence, at least not at this time. The other group wrote a report that essentially said close schools, but we aren't going to tell you how.

A majority of the Consolidation Working Group did further research into school closings and decided that it wasn't wise to close school on the East and Central sides of town.

KU grad hired as Lawrence Public Library's new director

The LJ World is a locally owned newspaper that reports on local news. The Lawrence Library is a significant local institution. Local institution = local news.

Town Talk: Lender seeks ownership of Lawrence Athletic Club over default of $2.4 million loan; New York real estate trust buys downtown property; more on chickens and art

I can't speak for the internal workings of Maximus, but I do know that they never "over promised." I knew what I was getting. Genesis has been promising a lot of upgrades since they took over. All I have seen are new classes. . .that I have to pay for, jacked up rates, and decreased the hours.

There is still a hole in the bathroom wall. One of the squat machines was broken for at least a month.

I can't speak for LAC, but the Genesis management is not as customer oriented as the Maximus crew.

One police officer accused of fixing traffic tickets no longer a city employee; second officer still on suspension

But he broke the same laws that he was arresting people for breaking. Do you share the same feelings for other people that accept bribes? A lot of people thought that Ken Lay and Alan Stanford were great people. Unfortunately their actions said otherwise.

Police are supposed to ENFORCE the law. Why should they be given special treatment when they BREAK the law? What kind of message does this send to our kids?

So Sarna just happened to let him speed? Something that many other people have been ticketed for? Something that many people have lost their driver's licenses for?

This was a coincidence that it was a "friend" who happened to give him KU tickets. A friend who is now in jail for a scandal involving ticket fraud.

Coincidence. . .
