Editorial: Recycling option

We live near Lceompton, and will not haul our trash to Stull. Overall it is a good idea, but there needs to be one in Lecompton.

Commissioners approve recycling pilot program for unincorporated Douglas County

If there was a recycling point in Lecompton, for instance, we might contribute to the effort. Since there is not, we won't haul trash to Stull.

Dog found shot along Highway 24, Humane Society providing surgery; Naked man runs into traffic at 23rd and Mass; Name released in Wednesday police chase

Do you include calls by the Sheriff's Office in your logs? It would be helpful if you did, many of us live in the county, outside of the city limits of Lawrence.

Law enforcement training involves pepper spray to face, underwater diving; weekend arrest list; 911 call roundup

When I was a deputy sheriff in SN county, we were sprayed with pepper spray. It was not fun. It sometimes takes more than a few minutes to wear off. I wonder if area law enforcement agencies are aware of Sabre Green? It is horseradish spray, as hot as pepper, but decontaminates much easier. I gave my wife a can to carry. State law requires at least 40 hours of in service training per year. The photos of the training are appreciated, I hope they continue. We have a good sheriff's office and deputies in this county. I thank all of them for their service.

Editorial: Gun responsibility

I agree with Mr. Forer. My Dad taught me and my brothers safe gun handling, hunting and fishing. I got my first shotgun when I was 10. I am the oldest of three boys. Many children do not have Dad's that hunt, some have no Dad at all. I think gun safety should be taught in school, and in many schools the NRA backed Eddie Eagle gun safety program is taught. I do not care who teaches gun safety, as long as it is taught without a political agenda attached. Children should know about guns. The Eddie Eagle program is for younger children, and teaches them if they see a gun to not touch it and get an adult. For older kids the KS Hunter Safety program is good. Just as long as they are taught about guns, how dangerous they can be, and if they are interested how to safely shoot.

City approves funding to help Community Shelter, Humane Society request doesn't win funding yet

I have never had any problems with customer service at the Humane Shelter. We recently lost our dog and I went out there to look for another. They were very nice and showed me all the dogs they had for adoption. Unfortunately they did not have the type of dog we wanted, but was not their fault. We ended up getting a dog from a lab rescue website.

Boy, 10, accidentally shot at Lawrence home

It never ceases to amaze me why people do not check to see if a firearm is loaded before attempting to clean it. What a sad story, praying for the young man.
