Topeka-based financial services company moving headquarters to west Lawrence; city moving ahead with ice rink; new affordable housing coalition forms

Why not keep the ice rink open through the entire winter? A longer operating period would help justify the fixed cost and give people more opportunities for physical activity.

Plus, downtown needs traffic in the slow months of January and February.

City commissioner proposes tax increase to fund bicycle, sidewalk projects in 2015

No. Current property taxes don't generally cover these costs.

You are right that retired people are especially sensitive to property tax increases. But some also greatly need transportation options that don't involve driving. It is hard to even walk your dog around the block when the sidewalks in your neighborhood are hazardous.

The plan would fund sidewalk repair and connections too. This would help anyone who walks and anyone who uses an assistive device such as a walker, wheelchair, motorized wheelchair or motorized scooter.

Longtime homeless shelter director to retire

I have always thought that Loring has the most difficult nonprofit job in town. He has done the job with dedication and grace. Very sad to see him go, but happy he will get some rest.
