Does the HRC understand that successful commercial enterprise makes preservation possible?

Would you pay a $1 toll to drive the full length of the South Lawrence Trafficway?

Hey Lawrence, perhaps you should not have manufactured a mythical frog to stop the completion of the project in the first place. How much was the project going to cost then, versus now? This city is its own worst enemy. No, I won't pay the $1, either. But out-of-towners will.

Abe and Jakes Landing space on sale for $1.3 million

I'm glad to see that space go. I hope that the city inspectors do their job and find the space to be a hazard. Imagine uneven floors, sharp edges, pointy objects, inadequate lighting, more inadequate lighting, unsupervised water hazard. Add to all that alcohol and you have the recipe for injury, or even death. Is there a safety engineer in the house?

Top Democrat says he'll pursue legislation to prevent Secretary of State-elect Kris Kobach from representing clients in immigration cases

Regardless of your opinion on what privileges are to be granted to illegal aliens or their children, Paul Davis' proposal is as reactionary as it gets. His proposal epitomizes government intrusion. And he should be very careful. Does he want his private or personal time to be scrutinized, limited, and/or regulated? I suspect not. His proposal is purely political and gains NOTHING for his constituents. In the spirit of a non-affiliated voted, it's time for him to be voted out. I can't wait.

Lawrence library leaders moving forward with expansion design plans

Oh, they give the Williams Fund.

Lawrence voters approve $18 million library expansion

As a State, we just voted in the Conservatives. As a city, we just voted to raise taxes. This illustrates how different and how confused Lawrence is. There is the "Face" of Lawrence, and then there is the "Heart" of Lawrence. They are quite different. And I think most people are confused about which is which.

Mosque would honor U.S. values

I suppose, then, that Leonard Pitts has no objection to the KKK and/or the Neo Nazi's moving in next door to him.

Hemenway's compensation package to include $340,352 per year, plus sports tickets

Kansans and KU Faculty and Staff, in particular should be outraged by Hemenway's long tenure and his job performance. They should hold Hemenway, the Regents, the Governor, and Hemenway's immediate staff responsible. Like most large corporations the foundations of success are found with the rank and file employees. Hemenway did very little to support these employees and shore up the foundation of KU. The fact that he was not replaced a long time ago should give us some pause about the efficacy of the Regent's review process.
