Lawrence City Commission to review plans for another two-lane roundabout

What are with the commissioners that they would even think about putting 2 more roundabouts in. They work fine in Paris and such. But they all drive much smaller cars. Let the engineers go over there and tell them what they need. Fix the roads and be done with it. We do not need more roundabouts. Just look at the 3 on the road off of K-10. WHAT A MESS THEY ARE ALL GROWN UP IN WEEDS. They spent a lot of money just to put them on a road to no where. listen to the people. Or have you already made up your minds about this. Who cares what everyone else thinks. Keep them engineers happy and making money off of the city.

Lawrence City Commission to review Kasold Drive lane reduction

The commission needs to remember the total mess with rock chalk park and how it cost them a new police station. from somebody who drives kasold daily we do not need to cut it down to 2 lanes. And we really don't need another round about. Just another piece of crap to grow up in weeds. we already have a couple of them off of k-10. Why is it the people in charge think that a round about needs to be put everywhere, what a waste of tax payers money. Just look along 31st street to see another waste of our money. all grown up in weeds with a lot of dead trees.

Kansas officials’ travel mixes family, politics, KU basketball

Brownback and Kobach should NOT be able to use the state plane to go to ball games and personal use. And especially not political things just for the republicans. it is being bias towards all the people. And if they are going somewhere not there whole extended family. Like grown children and spouses. We are just paying for there fun . If Kobach wants to go to a political platform for the republicans let him go on a commercial flight.

Brownback appeals to GOP base, slams Obama in State of the State address

Gee the man lies. Does this surprise anyone. As I have said the people who voted for this idiot should be so proud. You need to READ about what a person is about not just a party. Maybe we wouldn't be in this mess. It is not surprising that we can't get teachers and have a high number of people moving. but for some of us that isn't a option. So thank you Brownback for this mess.

Plans filed for major soccer complex near eastern end of SLT; Kansas ranks near top of list of states people are leaving

And of course Brownback didn't mention the budget. Oh I am sorry it is Obamas fault that Kansas is in the red. I bet Obama made up our budget.

Saturday Column: Project denial raises questions about city’s motives

Looks like the city commissioners are no better than the last. What ever they do it is to protect Rock Chalk Park and Mr Fritzel. My guess is if Fritzel had put the new mall out there they would of jumped on it. He must really have something on all of them. Or padding there pockets for his benefits.

Rejection of south Iowa Street shopping center sends confusing signals about future of south Lawrence growth

If I understand this right we either get the group to build at the famous Rock Chalk Park or they don't get to build at all. What do these owners have on our commissioners that they will screw over the people once again. Rock Chalk park was shoved down us and the commissioners are still doing it. Somebody must be padding there pockets.

WOW to increase many cable bills by more than $15 a month; Eudora bests Lawrence in young families ranking

We did away with our cable service many years ago. Went with Dish Network and have never been sorry. But we do have WOW internet service. We have the gold service and it is horrible to say the least. But what I would like to know is we pay a fee of $10 a month because we do not have there cable service. Is this legal or are they just gouging us in a way to try to make us take there other service.
