Wanted: Feedback on green project

Mr Bowhunter99,

The Baker Wetlands are actually wetlands naturally. They were drained so that they could be used for agricultural production and later returned to a more natural state. What do you think is the "normal state" that you propose returning the wetlands to, the one that you say will "help Lawrence grow?"

I realize that this is not a SLT article, but poorly informed, vocal people like Mr Bowhunter99 only confuse the issues.

Lakes drained to aid barge traffic

Draining the lake is the top-side problem, sedimentation is the bigger bottom-side problem that will be with us forever, regardless of the corps. Kansas reservoirs WILL fill with sediment, the only question is how fast. Dredging on these large reservoirs WILL be cost prohibative.

No population bounce here

I don't want Lawrence to grow quickly, so this is good news!

You do realize that is in no way a logical statement, don't you?

Unless you're being sarcastic. In which case nicely played!"

- Congratulations, you picked up on the sarcstic tone. But I predict that either way things turn out the "authorities" will use this line of reasoning.

Yes. A relatively problem free festival would indicate that the measures taken had been successfull. Then again, if there are problems the indication is that more measures are necessary.

Nitrous tanks, LSD, mushrooms seized around festival

If they've only nailed 6 people so far, I would say 1) the police aren't being very effective, and 2) there are going to be 14,994 stoned festival goers who are going to have fun and will come back next year!

Library plans unveiled

It is wonderful that, following a story presenting proposals for a new, expanded library, the citizens of Lawrence that are most in need of the resources and benefits of a new hub for intellectual stimulation and enrichment have saddled up to their keyboards and inadvertently provide the justification for raising the level of knowledge and culture in or fair city. Thanks folks, keep up the good work.

Abe & Jake's is city's burden

Jafs, Your response to Coldsplice's comments indicate that you did not read very carefully.

Coldspice wrote: "Getting it was one thing but to have it re-wired up to code alone was well into the 6 figures (over a decade ago)."

Jafs responds: "If he invested six figures a decade ago, I'm sure he's made all of that back and more by now. " Did you miss the fact that Coldspice was talking about re-wiring ALONE.

I don't think that anyone who has commented thusfar has a grasp of the level of funding needed to transform this property into what it is today.

On a separate note, this article displays the level of journalistic quality that one would expect from a high school newspaper, not an "Award Winning" organization like the Journal World. How did this get past the editor?
