Lawrence commission approves downtown ice skating rink on split vote

$80K for an artificial ice rink that's not even going to be open all winter? It's going to be open less than 2 months! Pardon my verbage but that's just retarded. Way to be fiscally responsible commissioners - as if we'd expect anything more.

Cleanup continues after Lawrence hit with historic snowfall; several school districts close Thursday

I have *maybe* 50 feet to drive on my street before hitting Monterey Way - which is one of the quasi-major roads that gets taken care of first - but can I get out of my drive and onto Monterey? No. People get stuck at our corner every time it snows because of the slight incline and the extra snow piles that are plowed off Monterey. Am I mad at the city? No! It is what it is and I deal with it by either staying home or knowing that we have to shovel the street or we'll probably get stuck. The city can only do so much with what they have (plows and money) and people need to CALM DOWN!

What do you remember from your high school or college graduation speaker?

Didn't attend KU commencement and high school was a LONG time ago. I'm pretty sure I wasn't paying attention to the speaker because all I do remember was wanting the stupid ceremony to be over because the fellow I'd had a crush on for 3 years had just come home from his first year at college and asked if he could accompany me to our graduation party. Yeah, that was a good night.

Pedestrians hit in Target lot identified

Sorry to be a spelling Nazi, but wouldn't that be "aisle", not "isle"?

Sound Off: Genesis Health Club

Maybe the exterior work is regular maintenance that is needed? If they (LAC) hadn't been maintaining the equipment (which is a fitness facility's bread and butter) I can't imagine they were maintaining the exterior. Just a thought.

Family's homemade cookies thank those who spend holiday on the job

Dr. Marks was the first veterinarian I used in Lawrence (1991) and we continue to use Wakarusa Veterinary Hospital. This story makes me happy as it's been my experience that he and his entire staff are all very kind and caring and this exemplifies that. Thank you, Mark and Shanon!!
