More twists with recreation center project: KU Endowment now requiring city to pay for land; UPDATE Self's Foundation again planning donation to city

On the one hand, if you reveal all information as it becomes available people think it is dishonest and controlling the message

On the other hand If you hold information until it is all worked out people are accused of a back room deal. Doesn't seem to be any way to win with this crowd. The real problem here is trust.

What has changed to the bottom line? Still $25M. Still getting a $1M donation that goes away without this. Still have an opportunity for a wellness center. Nothing has changed. Build it.

I agree with Skinny. Taxes are too high. The Rock Chalk Park will grow business and that will help drive residential taxes down.

Lawrence Association of Neighborhoods calls for citywide election on recreation center project

The classic Lawrence 'protest everything crowd' tactic is to demnad a public vote in the eleventh hour. This group does not care what the majority of Lawrence thinks, they only want to stop the park.

Lawrence Association of Neighborhoods calls for public vote on recreation center project, expresses concern about bidding process; two public meetings set on project

LAN stopped representing the residents years ago. They are so busy pretending to be watchdogs they no longer serve the purpose they were intended to fullfill. Today it is just the same old crowd taking turns attacking city offiicials.

Cheeseburger is right. LAN and Routh should focus on Neighborhood issue instead of pretending to be city watchdogs.
