Is $140 in fine and court costs a fair price for a speeding ticket in Lawrence?

I am curious as to the fine for texting and driving. I am far more likely to be hit by a driver staring into his or her lap, especially now the students are back in town.

Customer leaves 23rd Street Brewery waitress $500 tip

A number of us were lucky enough to be present when Jessica came over and shared her experience. Trust me when I say the group of us old, grizzled vets had water in our eyes as she related how this "paying if forward" moment touched her so. What a great story and such a reminder that there is so much good in the world. Bless this family that lost a special person who obviously meant so much to them. Jessica the smile on your face will long be remembered. I am sure your life will continue to pay it forward.

Kansas Insurance Commissioner doesn't fit in GOP

Sandy is one of the very few Republicans I can support. Her years of serving the people of Lawrence and the state clearly prove that one can be a Republican that can see all sides of a problem and work with anyone to fix it. Sandy when you finally hang up your public service hat you will be sorely missed.

Local emergency responders prepared for the worst

LeBo, find the needed trauma surgeons and other required professional personnel and all our problems would be solved. Until then I support all that LMH has done and is doing to make trauma care at LMH a reality.

What is the oldest piece of furniture in your house?

If you asked my wife she would probably say me.

Not everyone who lost his life in Vietnam died there. Not everyone who came home from Vietnam ever left there.

Chiefs’ ticket sales rise

Happy to see folks are happy with the next phase of the Chiefs program. I, however, was perfectly happy to give up my season tickets after 21 years. Let's see 210 regular season games (I count the two exhibition games since the costs are the same) and two playoff wins when Joe Montana was our QB. I have made some crappy investment choices in the past but this was probably the worst. There were fun times of course, these past years have almost made me want to start rooting for professional baseball again. Nah, that's not going to happen either.

Opinion: Draft makes U.S. defense everyone’s duty

Interesting comments regarding who protects versus who is protected. I have long believed that those who rule should, as the article stated, have some skin in the game. Those in the military are not simply pawns for the elite to toss around as they see fit. If the use of the military is actually in the best interest of the country then let all take part.
