Concept plan for 5K, 10K trails at Rock Chalk Park emerges

The broken record continues...surprised we didn't hear about any bushes that needed trimmed. Ghetto? I'll take you to a few ghettos if you really want to see some. Keep up the complaining...people will never take you seriously unless you stop sounding like a cranky old man.

Also off-topic as well. This article is about Rock Chalk Park, which is obviously an issue that has raised considerable public debate. Why not contribute to that discussion?

Gift from estate will provide $1.4 million for KU journalism scholarships

Against what current? TV, multimedia and PR/corporate communications jobs are on the rise. The only area not growing is traditional newspapers.

Lawrence mayor says his talks with Delaware Indian tribe didn't involve casino

Here, I'll use excessive exclamation points to stick with your conversation style...

I'm not going to run down the list, but I'll say that the areas around Prairie Park are gorgeous! There are also some neighborhoods along 19th street that are fine as well! Granted, there are some areas in east Lawrence that are run down over by the cemetery, but you find areas like that in any town!

Many areas in east Lawrence close to downtown are just old, but it doesn't mean that it's a wasteland! I hope that helps!

Gift from estate will provide $1.4 million for KU journalism scholarships

And why would you say that? There are a number of media/communications jobs out there...it's just not the traditional newspapers anymore.

Oh give it up already. Complain complain complain. We get it, you don't like it here and you want all of our leaders to get fired. There are plenty of areas east of Iowa that look just fine. Not every area, but the majority are.

Freshman KU basketball player Brannen Greene cited for leaving scene of accident

Deserves punishment of course, but unless there's a history of issues with this kid...doesn't mean he should be kicked off the team. Pay for the damages, do a fair share of community service, run a couple hundred laps in the gym until his legs about fall off, and move on.

Freshman KU basketball player Brannen Greene cited for leaving scene of accident

It is an internal matter with public scrutiny from those that most likely don't know anything about the people involved or the incident. Punish him and move on. No reason to send a kid home for this though. If there are a string of issues (or a background from HS), then that's a different story.

College athletes (especially from high-profile programs like KU) are in the public eye, but they are kids that screw up from time to time. It's not just at KU, but at all universities. If you don't attend a KU athletic event because of this, that's obviously your choice. But you are also passing judgment on an entire department for the actions of a few. I feel sorry for you...

City approves budget with slight property tax increase, great hopes of improving economy in 2014

A ghetto east of Kasold? I'll take you to a few spots in KC and Chicago and show you what a real ghetto is like. Now are some areas in East Lawrence the best in the world? No. But don't make it sound worse than it is.

An honest question though...are you ever positive about anything? Do you not like living here? If not, why do you stay? And I don't mean this as a snarky question...just curious.

More than a decade after a citywide ban, fireworks still making noise in Lawrence

You are speaking to the wrong demographic here. Internet posters for the most part are not the brightest lights on the block. I'm completely with you on this.
