Speakup (James Hardie)


Comment history

Farmer elected to serve as mayor; Boley, Herbert, Soden take seats on City Commission

Call me crazy, and some will no doubt, but could Mr. Farmer be just the right guy to represent Lawrence at this time? He has an infectious smile and, though I haven't met him, personality. I think it alright to get excited for the change he potentially brings to this honorary position and allow the enthusiasm of the people to rise and bring out the "Best of Lawrence" to show the world.

Public transit hub topic of debate at City Commission forum

Speaking of grocery stores in the downtown area, why not encourage existing business/property owners with City government incentives to develop their current assets/buildings for this purpose? Seventh and Conn. comes to mind as a for instance. Possibly start with a smaller scale whole foods store? Could be the just the right fit. I think the Merc's time on west seventh was a very positive influence for that neighborhood.

Teen struck by car while saving a turtle in the road has always put animals first

If I read the article correctly, I believe the parent 'let' the minor out on the side of the road? Certainly my heartfelt concern is with all the affected parties here . . .

Wow, once you get past the sentimentality of the incident (extremely unfortunate) you are left with the stark reality of a lack of common sense.

Norquist coming to Kansas to talk about immigration

What a bunch of foul mouthed, disrespectful, crud comments on this thread. Don't any of you know that you will receive as you have given? Show respect to gain the same. Everyone, and of course I mean everyone, has something to add to this American Experiment.
