Taking out the trash set to change in Lawrence: earlier collection times, new days for yard waste

Oh, great. Work in the yard all weekend and now wait until the following Thursday for stuff to be collected.
Store it where?
Who decided this without any public comment or input?
I guess everyone works for the city's convenience...

City's strategic planning process starts with a dose of local history

I can't tell what all is on this timeline, but in this decade and the one earlier, the city lost its locally owned media. Just now coming to an appreciation of what a loss that is, IMO.

Band Day 2016

Great photos. It's unfortunate that letting TV have control of the scheduled start times for football games has put a crimp in participation by high school bands. In the past, they would travel from Western Kansas to take part. No longer!

City Commission accedes to protesters' demands, signs letters in support of Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

Nice to have so much notice and public discussion in advance of the commission vote. I thought commissioners were elected to decide on the city budget, personnel issues, facilities, streets, etc. I don't recall that anyone campaigned on pipeline or similar matters.

Been a board member? Served your church or organization? Given money or time?
