Medical debt is ‘financially crippling’ families in Kansas, Missouri

It does not help when hospitals like Lawrence Memorial charge 12% interest on that debt no matter how good your credit may be. This just adds more to the wound of medical debt. It saddens me that they want to build this huge new addition at the cost once again on the consumer. I understand some do not pay their bills but I would think a high interest rate would just add to the unpaid debt. I say shame on them for being a part of the medical debt problem we face each day.

Douglas County Relay for Life exceeds its fundraising goal, honors those affected by cancer

Thank you to all of those that raised the funds for this event. A special thank you to Mr. Silipigni, that is a huge amount. So much of the money does stay local to support those with this horrible disease.

Letter to the editor: ArtWalk clarification

I do not usually comment. However, I find it so sad that Bill had to attack her Letter to the Editor. She was simply clarifying information for the public. Why even comment, except to be mean and hateful.

Development group wins legal victory related to downtown grocery store; Price Chopper project expected to gain steam

I have had the opportunity to work with the Queen Family, they are very good business people that will do their homework. Queen's have been exceptional community members and will support the community in which they do business. Lawrence would win if the Queen Family decides to invest in Lawrence.

As deadline passes, city mum about next move on Oread hotel tax dispute; new questions about Oread tenants emerge

I find it so sad that this man would deceive the city in which provided his family a profitable livelihood for his entire life. I also find it unbelievable that the city did not look more closely at his Junction City dealings and realize past history is repeatable history which is exactly what we are seeing. Greed and deception go hand in hand!!

Kansas K-12 committee begins looking at school finance

They seem to think they have all of the details now. However, do they have the correct details and ALL of the information they need to make a wise decision? We know they would not seek out Educators to help inform them of the correct information. Greg Cooper your point is so spot on!

Streets, infrastructure polling higher than police headquarters in new city survey results

The roads need repair and the lines on the roads need to be repainted. There are numerous locations that the lines have totally disappeared. This is very dangerous especially when you have double turning lanes, we must remember how many out of town guests we have, they do not know the boundaries.

Capital City Bank signs deal for west Lawrence location; retirement neighborhood near Rock Chalk Park gaining momentum

Unlike other projects, Rock Chalk was NOT a choice of the public. I think that is the issue here and the inequality of a few that continue to get projects approved looks very fishy. Those of us that have lived here for many years have also seen very large jumps in our taxes. If it continues we will eventually out price ourselves with the multi-generational citizens because they will not be able to afford to live here. Lawrence is a wonderful place to live but at some point spending has got to cease on special projects.

City proposing $30 increase in speeding fine

I found this article very interesting since I cannot remember the last time I saw someone pulled over in this town. Maybe if they would enforce the laws we do have they would not need to increase costs. I did not see anything about running stop signs. I have seen 2 accidents happen because people run stop signs like crazy in this town. I wonder when it became legal to go through stop signs 2 cars at a time? Hmmm...........

City manager forecasting increase in city's general fund property tax rate for 2014 budget

Maybe you should spend a day in a school and see what a pud job it is. Let me tell you as an educator, I work nights and weekends and many days in the summer to get ready for the upcoming year. Obviously, you do not know any educators you would sing a different tune if you did. When working with kids your job never ends.
