Wait. An editorial AGAINST Brownback and his economic policies? I'll take it.

Your Turn: City’s action diminishes access to arts

They did open the curtain. Many times. During budget discussions. Open to the entire community.

I thought the City Commission approved $30K for scholarships for 2017? Please, somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

Lawrence City Commission approves property tax increase to save City Hall jobs, boost library funding

No. The maximum mill levy that the board can recommend every year is 4.5. Chad didn't report what their total mill levy will be now with the 0.3 added, but I think it's about 3.7ish total. Don't have time to look that up right now.

Kansas revenues miss the mark in July; state starts new fiscal year with a shortfall

Umm, I think the projections were based on fiscally conservative spending. You know...new budget and all?

Letter to the editor: Strong slate

County Commissioners are paid extremely well for the time they put int. City Commissioners are not.

Another fast-food chicken restaurant sets its sights on Lawrence; basketball court promise broken at Rock Chalk Park

Four of the five were sitting on the commission when they said NO to the first request last year.. JFarm was still around then. Link to the CC meeting minutes are below. Start at page 5. Diane Stoddard recommended creating a policy. But did the city/CC ever follow through with that? http://lawrenceks.org/assets/agendas/...

And I clearly remember the discussion from the June 2015 CC meeting. LPRD was specifically told "NO"...you must keep at least one court open at all times. They knew. And apparently forgot to explain that to Markus, which puts him in a bad light, which is not fair to him.
