Sorry, had to laugh at this one. Never trust an old man on a low riding, pink bicycle!

Special police detail seeks to curb dangerous behavior among college students

I've been here many years and know that Tennessee Street is a death trap when the students are back in town. I avoid it like the plague. The street lights are terrible and in the past, I've seen students dart across the street and cannot see them; they're almost a blur. In any case, coming home from work tonight, I spotted more than 3 police cars downtown that were patrolling the area. Kudos for them, keep those students in check and show them that outside of KU campus they cannot just walk in front of cars on their cell phones and pretend that they are invincible.

Teachers reach contract agreement with Lawrence district

I don't think anybody hates the teachers. It's the administration that is top heavy. I personally have always thought the teachers should be paid more. But, people are getting tired of being taxed, taxed and taxed again. The money is coming from some type of tax base.

Man convicted of killing Lawrence boy in 1988 up for parole this month

I also remember the case and believe this guy was a transient and befriended the boy and his family, before mutilating him. How ludicrous it would be if he were paroled. The picture of him, gives me the creeps!

Library expansion bids come in below budget, allowing for coffee shop concept to be added back to project

Because they think money grows on trees and will take every penny to get what they want. Why not just add a spa, Jacuzzi, and Italian tile while they are at it.

Developer seeking $800,000 in public improvements to aid multimillion-dollar East Lawrence art gallery

I totally agree. I'm getting tired of being nickled and dimed to death in this city. And, please don't tell me to move, my house is not worth what the city says it is worth!
