Lawrence City Commission to review plans for another two-lane roundabout

There are so many streets in need of basic repair, yet the City commission and traffic engineers insist on needless projects like this one. Yes, that intersection needs something besides a four way stop, but it seems a traffic signal would make more sense.
Reducing lanes on Kasold is a ridiculous idea. What it needs is to be milled and repaved, like what is happening on Bob Billings pkwy.

University Place Neighborhood cites concerns about proposed public transit hub

This is a terrible, terrible idea for the neighborhood. I think the whole "hub" idea is worthless anyway, but if the city/KU insists on having one, this proposed place is NOT ideal, or even acceptable. I hope it is reconsidered by the city commission.

KU's Spencer Museum remains closed after water leak; thousands of books damaged in art library

An amazing amount of work went into the clean up and moving of books (and water) by library and art museum staff and students and Facilities Operations. Hopefully much of the damaged collection can be salvaged. Kudos to everyone who worked there yesterday.
