Bicyclist killed in accident on South Lawrence Trafficway identified as 29-year-old Lawrence woman

I as a biker care about the cause and effect. It is exactly the time to talk about safety issues with cars and bikes in Lawrence. 4-5 people a year get killed riding their bike. If we don't talk about solutions now then when? God bless her and her family. I don't want the same thing to happen to me so I NEED to talk about the cause and effect, with all due respect.

I respect what you say. But now is exactly the time to talk about biker safety and car safety. 4-5 people a year get killed in lawrence, and ignoring the cause and effect won't fix that. I care for this town and I want to be part of the conversation that has a solution. God bless her and her family of course.

Well when you screw up, you don't get a free pass do you. You wish he could forget his terrible mistake? Actions shouldn't have consequences? You shouldn't pay deep attention EVERY SINGLE time you are on the road?

I am the guy on my bike in Lawrence constantly telling people/strangers to wear a helmet and this is why. God knows I don't want to be right, and bless this poor woman's soul. THIS IS WHY YOU WEAR A HELMET. Anytime I see a bike rider on the street or even on the sidewalk, not wearing a helmet I get a terrible flash of what could happen to that person. It's not fun for me. I care about people, I care about this town. FOR GOD SAKE"S WEAR A HELMET.

And for drivers, I am the guy on my bike flipping you off and cursing at you anytime I get cut off or sneered at and this is exactly the reason why. 4-5 people a year get killed in Lawrence on their bikes. WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO TO CHANGE THIS? DO YOU DRIVERS GIVE A DARN? Get off your phone, don't drive drunk, pay attention. Chances are if you're not I am gonna pass you by and get in your face and tell you about why you should change your behavior.

Perfect storm: Elijah Johnson buries ISU with 39 points

Good Job Elijah! On a side note can we do without the added in parenthesis additions by the writer of the article? In a DIRECT QUOTE I don't need inferences from the writer every time, interrupting the quote. Talk about amateur hour at the Apollo. This reads like a country bumpkin wrote it. Get a grip man.

Sound Off: I live on Princeton Boulevard, and dandelions are taking over the median strip. Does the

Dandelions are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. It also has many other uses. Fact. Don't take my word for it look it up yourself. Somebody would really put poisons into the ground (and therefore our water supply) to eradicate what is a seasonal and very helpful plant? Get over it people. Get a hobby, visit your friends and relatives, start sewing, anything to keep you from freaking out about minor things.

Police take two into custody, use Taser subduing fight

The point was that if you are a thirty-something person closing bars down every night or even every weekend you probably are compensating for things you are lacking in your life.

Mission man charged in connection with Lawrence man's death in February

why is it that in some parts of East Lawrence it is okay for parties to rage on for hours and hours with bonfires etc.? I am all for partying but there has to be some kind of sense about limitations.

Sound Off: What is the city code regarding smoking outside of a restaurant? How far do smokers have

Seriously people? I am not a smoker but this is exactly why I was worried about all these bans. Now people can't be near doorways or people start to freak out. Next people have to go to designated outdoor areas, one every four blocks. Next you can't smoke in your own house, etc. etc. STOP FREAKING OUT ABOUT STUPID CRAP PEOPLE. DO YOU NEED GOVERNMENT TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO AND WHEN TO DO IT? Be considerate, not because it's the law because we can govern ourselves better than any 'authority' can.
