31-year-old Lawrence man transported by life-flight helicopter after fall

The helicopter comes from the Lawrence airport. I would imagine it gets to the ER in about 10 to 15 minutes after takeoff.

Lawrence 16-year-old ticketed for texting while driving before rollover accident

The accident happened out in the county, I'm pretty sure all of the county fire departments are volunteer. And as far as "paid pretty well", I'm wondering how much money it would take for you to run into a burning, smoke filled building. I'm guessing that figure is probably more than they get paid.

Hospitals are giving faster heart care, study says

Spoken like someone with absolutely NO idea of what he is talking about. Most of the time you will find yourself in the cath lab based on symptoms and your EKG.

‘Top Gear’ roars into 17th season

Best show on TV, except for the US version of Top Gear on the History channel. At it's best it's just mildly entertaining. They can't live up to the standards of the UK version (or even the Aussie version). Clarkson, May and Hammond have the perfect chemistry.

Town Talk: Home sales down in 2010; home construction up in 2010; sidewalk shoveling complaints start to roll in

So if I shovel my sidewalk and then a plow comes by and throws snow back on my sidewalk, who gets the ticket? Me, or the plow driver for covering up all my hard work?

Website picks Lawrence among top 10 college towns in nation

What in the world made you come to the conclusion that was what Amyx was talking about. The first thing I thought of when I read it was that he was referring to the residents of Lawrence.

Best of Lawrence 2011: Coffee, Burgers and Dancing

The Burger Stand at The Casbah is THE BEST!!!! I also vote for J&S Coffee for best coffee in town. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly.

Dempsey's is absolute trash now that the Burger Stand moved. Soggy fries and nasty burgers. They tried to keep the same menu, but it's obvious they couldn't keep the same standards and quality.

LMH need

So you're telling me that at 3am a person with a mental health emergency is turned away and not treated? BS. You're first post mentions all the deadbeats in this town. Who exactly do you think is going to be using up the majority of the "overnight beds"? Here's your scenario. Homeless guy gets to the drop in center too late to get a bed. His options are to sleep in the park in sub-freezing temps, or call LPD and say he wants to kill himself. Now he gets to nice warm comfortable bed, TV, food and clean bathroom. Oh and don't worry, Medicaid will cover it.

Bottom line, you can't have a full time, full service mental health facility without staff. Mr_right_wing hit it on the nose. His understanding is 100% correct.
