Regents approve apartments for men's basketball players; project will be named in honor of Marie S. McCarthy

I have to wonder just how posh these digs will be, given that they are spending $305K a student. Good grief!

City asked to cut downtown employees a break on parking; talk of a downtown liquor store versus downtown grocery

You would think that Schumm, who has owned two restaurants, would realize that most of those who are working downtown and not making the big bucks are spending their entire work days on their feet.

So, essentially, when it comes to 9th and NH, it is take from workers and give to developers.

City prepares to put $25 million police headquarters plan on November ballot

So this will be put up for a vote but Rock Chalk Park was not? With the 1994 one-cent countywide sales tax, we could have built a new cop shop and made the sorely needed upgrades to our city water system. Instead, we will have an additional sales tax increase as well as higher utility bills. And there is already talk of a convention centered partially funded by the city...

Appeals court upholds same-sex marriage

Well, go get yourself a traditional marriage then. Leave the non-traditional ones to those with differing beliefs. What makes you a zealot is not what you believe but forcing those beliefs on others.

Couple at center of November homicide may have fallen into resource 'gap'

Amy, I don't believe that Kathy Getto's comment was in reply to yours but to the article itself.

Compton confirms deal to redevelop Allen Press property at 11th and Mass.; Lawrence home sales fall in September

It is the fact that downtown seems to be sprouting taller and taller buildings and that the developers seem to be getting far too many tax abatements and the like from the city that bother people. I would like to see more liveable living spaces in central Lawrence but I don't know that downtown is necessarily the best bet for a variety of practical reasons.
