Ceremony honors police officers for heroic efforts

Lawrence's Fire Department practices a "surround and drown" policy that does not emphasize rescues.

Fire Departments in surrounding cities know this and actually joke about it.

Second candidate announces for city commission

I know Mr. Chestnut. He's a sharp guy.

Win or lose, it is good that the race is attracting this caliber of candidate.

A new round for the SLT

I think a lot of people do what "off to the right" suggests - they use residential streets as passageways.

Like using 27th Street between Louisiana and Iowa. Or 19th Street from Iowa to Harper.

This endangers the kids of people who live on those streets.

Build the SLT - for the children.

A new round for the SLT

Just about a wreck a day on 23rd Street. Some involve injuries. This endangers our families!

Build the SLT - do it for our children's safety.

Left-turn limits on Iowa St. possible

You think they'd figure out that turn lanes and medians help traffic, but just look at Wakarusa -- they still don't get it.

Left-turn limits on Iowa St. possible

Someday someone will figure out building new roads makes more sense than clogging up the existing ones.

Congressional Quarterly: Ryun's still leading, but in danger

Boyda worked for the drug companies?

And this is the alternative liberals want to foist upon us?

Ryun concedes race is tight

This race is not on there. It is not close.

Businessman to run for City Commission

Two of the PLC candidates commute to jobs in Topeka every day.

They hired an Overland Park attorney to represent us in the WalMart lawsuit (and gave him $250,000 and counting).

They hired an Overland Park firm to do a city employment study.

They hired an out of state firm to find a city manager.

But watch the liberals attack when a potential competing candidate has some contact outside of Lawrence.

Kansans seek to reclaim horticulture

They should have mentioned marijuana crops - Douglas County is a leader in that.

Go Liberal Farmers!
