Prepare to relax, savor at the most intimate restaurant in Lawrence

Ok, I just went back to Yelp and checked out her other reviews, and I rest my case. The woman who says she was kicked out is truly a picky eater. Chipotle got one star too, as did several other businesses. Apparently an Italian restaurant in Olathe threatened to call the cops on her party. People like to abuse Yelp because it makes them feel important, so you gotta take those negative reviews with a big grain of salt.

Prepare to relax, savor at the most intimate restaurant in Lawrence

I assume you're talking about the one where the diner was kicker out for being too picky. I've eaten at cafe beautiful, so first off, I gotta say that it was a great experience. Second, let's never forget that Yelp is a magnet for self-absorbed whiners, and I only saw her side of the story on that review. The moral of the story is, never date a picky eater; they really know how to ruin a good time.

Updates on new cookie shop downtown and new ownership for SpringHill Suites

I've lived in both Columbia and Lawrence. They're basically the same town; both little college town oases surrounded by Midwest countryside. I know that the rivalry thing is fun and makes life a little more interesting, but it doesn't actually mean anything. If you still carry a grudge after the game, you come off looking like a maniac. It's just a game maaaaan

City balks at plan to allow motorists to use credit cards for new downtown parking garage

It sounds like they should be looking for a company that charges a percentage of transaction costs, as opposed to one that charges a flat fee (in this case, I'm guessing a quarter) plus a percentage. When it comes to credit card processing, you really have to shop around and look at the fine print. And our parking fees (and tickets) are some of the lowest I've seen in the country, so that makes it hard to put anything extra towards a transaction fee.

Douglas County drug investigation seizes $1 million in meth from Mexican drug cartel

Look back over the last century. When incentives are high for smuggling, there have always been people willing to smuggle in huge volumes of drugs. Doesn't matter if it's alcohol, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, pills, etc, there will always be a way to bring it in the country. Name one president that was able to even come CLOSE to stopping smuggling.

Douglas County drug investigation seizes $1 million in meth from Mexican drug cartel

That's a good point, because as I recall, drug smuggling only started a few years back, after Obama became President. Prior to then, criminals were able to restrain themselves from taking advantage of the vast profit margins, and respected our borders. THANKS OBAMA

Residents displaced by early-morning fire on Tennessee Street

I've heard of fires in town that were caused by electrical problems as well, and there was that one downtown that was from overheated oil...BBQ and cigarettes are entirely possible too of course.

Labor, community groups plan to rally against Americans for Prosperity

The perfect example of conservative thinking! Everything is black or white. If your group claims to be for prosperity, and someone opposes your group, it doesn't mean they object to its radical politics or self-serving agenda; they just hate America and prosperity. If you opposed the Patriot Act, you are not a patriot. I can't believe people actually fall for that trick over and over but it seems to still work.

In search of the best spot to watch Lawrence's Fourth of July fireworks

Just watched the display from right on the banks of the river and it was great. Sure, I've seem displays that had more going on, but I really like being able to enjoy individual fireworks, instead if having 5 or ten go off at the same time. Plus I didn't have to pay a dime, so anyone who gets too whiny might wanna consider throwing in a few bucks if they feel like things should be different.
