Kansas collects $3.7M less in taxes than expected this month

Sales tax collected in July is not due to the State until AUGUST 25!
The reporter should know this and the Dept of Revenue definitely knows this crucial fact. The sales tax report is actually June sales tax that was just paid last week. So when you see the report at the end of August, you will see the 1st deposit of increased sales tax.

Good work Mallory! There is a huge difference in the mind set of Shopping and Working downtown. As a shopper I Expect to walk to all the places. As an owner/worker I expect to get there ON TIME, and if I am dealing with customers, I will stay with them as my 5 hour meter expires. The current $50 habitual offender tickets target only employees, who are mostly minimum wage workers. They are there every day! Bringing Lawrence sales tax dollars. Oh, and businesses pay Very high property taxes.
Do you have any numbers for how many employees are working in all the businesses in any given hour during the day, when meters and 2 hour parking is in force? It has to be hundreds!

Sound Off: License stickers

I got my new sticker last month and it is too big to fit in space of the previous one. It had to overlap the top of the license numbers.

City, public need time to evaluate northwest plans

Dolph, Thanks for bringing this to our attention! Have you had headlines about this? I knew about the sports proposal but but not the zoning. Now I will have to start reading the Commission Agenda again.
The dumpster thing is too funny, I thought you were being witty the first time you mentioned it, but apparently you are reporting it as true by the end of the piece. Now that would have been a great headline!

Supreme Court appears split by ideology over health care

Why did the Senate take out the Sever Ability Clause? Either they were playing chicken with the Courts, or they were they were so full of themselves they thought they could do no wrong.

Good investment

"Investment has different meanings in finance and economics. Finance investment is putting money into something with the expectation of gain, that upon thorough analysis, has a high degree of security for the principal amount, as well as security of return, within an expected period of time."

Rural Lawrence man ordered to stand trial in shooting death of cousin

Hey Harley, he's our neighbor. On a side note, the asphalt in front of his house on 458 has cracked and sunk down, I am not kidding.
