Officers pour resources into underage drinking battle

Unfortunately there are people at every age group that are not responsible enough to handle it just not this age group.

Officers pour resources into underage drinking battle

The drinking age should be 19. By this age the person will be out of high school. And If you want to close down some bars for 30 days you might as well add Salty Iguana, 23rd Street Brewery, the bowling alley, Buffalo Wild Wings, Saints, every El Mezcal, On The Border, every bar in the Oread, Tres Mexicanos, and Celinta Lindos. I could keep adding but I think you get the picture. And if you do not think these establishments are not serving underagers, then you need to open your eyes.

County to conduct saturation patrol and DUI check lane this weekend

Maybe it is the students that should be teaching us. I know several taxi drivers. They can not stop talking about how happy they are about the students being back. So the taxis are slow in the summer and busy during school. Sounds like many of the students are being more responsible then the rest of our community.

Lawrence City Commission to review plans to upgrade police department through sales tax

It is unfortunate but Lawrence's police station is seriously outdated and the police force is understaffed. I am a firm believer that if you do something, do it right the first time so you do not have to come back to it year after year for fixes. With this being said, even if it costs more up front, build the station that will be around for the next 20 to 30 years. $30 million today is better than $24 million with $1 million dollar fixes every other year for the next 20 to 30 years.

Public forum to provide details on rec center

The minature golf and batting cages at 31st and Iowa. I remember going to those up to 1990. If I remember right, one son had power of attorney and sold the land from under his father's nose. Too bad. It was a great place.

Ex-AG Phill Kline wants 2 justices recused in ethics case

Politically motivated. It seems what ever he did when he was Attorney General was politically motivated.

Police calls to bars draw official scrutiny

It's not just the young people, it is also the older people. Just the other night there was a fight at 6 mile between several older people. Drunks come in all age groups.
