Editorial: Strategy shift

That all sounds real nice.... However until the broken processes and departments with in City Hall are fixed, nothing will change and Lawrence will remain, standing proudly as a business un-friendly community, to not only a small local start up, but to large companies as well.

The Chamber getting any our tax payer money is 100% waste of our money!

Editorial: Big picture

"The term "Blue Ribbon" is just another fake Hollywood name to add an air of prestige to what is really a small number of folks on a panel, normally."

Who gets to pick out the ribbons anyway? Are they shopping downtown or going to Topeka or KC, or do you do the ebay thing? Is it one of those looping ribbons, or more like the ones you get for pies at the county fair? Do they have to wear the ribbons and if so for how long? Why should it be only a blue ribbon? Why not red? Or maybe yellow? Oh, that's right, yellow is reserved for trees...

Results: Soden, Boley, Herbert top Lawrence City Commission vote

"THAT'S what's going to encourage more business development. Which is what we need desperately."

Well I can tell you from personal experience, that Mr. Farmer will do little to encourage or spur "business development". He has made a number of smart ass comments during his term as it is. For example telling residents who don't agree with the 9th st. arts crap, to stop writing emails to the grant people, to advise them of the residents dislike. I personally, as a member of this community, would not like to see him sat as Mayor. I'm pretty sure had his name been on the ballot, he would not still be here as well.
