Downtown Lawrence bank briefly evacuated for unfounded bomb threat

Could be the bank seized all his money to pay a loan for someone else. Could be all his bills got behind and are now in collection because the bank blew him off for over a year before they "decided" that maybe "they" should take a look at the issue at hand. Could be he's not the only one this institution has done this injustice to. Just say'in.

Letter: Living wage

30 years ago I made less than one quarter of what I make now. I had rent, utilities, car payment and a child to raise. Today I have a house payment and utilities. My car is paid for but is on it's last leg and I have no children to raise. 30 years ago I went to the grocery store and the department store and bought what we needed and wanted. Today I shop the adds before grocery shopping if its not on sale I most likely decide that I don't need it. The clearance rack is my friend. The minimum wage has increased a number of times over the last 30 years. With each increase everything else also increased. The dollar will only buy about 25% of what it bought 30 years ago. Remember buying a hamburger, fries and a coke AND getting change back from a dollar? Try that today. Guess what I'm trying to say is, if you raise the minimum wage to $25.00 an hour, it won't make a difference everything will increase right along with it and the value of that dollar will go down further. Maybe we'll be able to get that burger, fries and coke and still get change back from a $10.

Undercover task force cites 17 businesses for selling alcohol to minors

Just think of all the illegal sales that have taken place at these establishments where the customer was not undercover?

Anti-abortion activists urge passage of fetal heartbeat bill in Kansas

I do not consider my self a conservative nor a liberal. I am an individual that considers all issues and form my own decisions as an American, born under the laws of the land, the United States of America. These laws were decided long before my conception with fewer legislatures and far less expense. An issue does not appear before the Supreme Court overnight through some unknown route. It is discussed and recussed for YEARS before reaching that bench. Millions of tax payers money is spend just so a liberal can blame a conservative or a conservative blame a liberal over the outcome of an issue that neither really cares about. Its winning the battle no matter the battle, just win it! If the law was decided years ago, so be it. Don't be so hell bent on rewriting history, but pay more heed to preserving the future. The United States is near financial ruin, we do not need to tie up more money we don't have just to say I was involved, I was a participant. One hundred years from now no one, but law students studying perpetural motion and the rapid decline of America will really give a damn.

North Lawrence accident leaves pedestrian with serious injuries

I can continue with:
History: L. 1974, ch. 33, § 8-1536; July 1.

8-1537. Same; use of roadways.
(Pedestrian movements in roadways directed)
(a) Where a sidewalk is provided and its use is practicable, it shall be unlawful for any pedestrian to walk along and upon an adjacent roadway.

(b) Where a sidewalk is not available, any pedestrian walking along and upon a highway shall walk only on a shoulder, as far as practicable from the edge of the roadway.

(c) Where neither a sidewalk nor a shoulder is available, any pedestrian walking along and upon a highway shall walk as near as practicable to an outside edge of the roadway, and, if on a two-way roadway, shall walk only on the left side of the roadway.

(d) Except as otherwise provided in this article, any pedestrian upon a roadway shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.

But I didn't think it was relevant, the law continues and is rather lengthy.

You've copied:

(Drivers shall exercise due care to avoid collisions with pedestrians)

Not putting blame on either party. Just pointing out the law as it is written.
