Holiday Bazaar slated for Sunday

How odd, I was a vendor at the holiday bazaar last year and did quite well. Perhaps that goes to show that if you make quality items that people want to buy, they will. If not, you pack up two hours early and complain about it being the show's fault.

City commissioners split on proposed roundabout at Ninth and New Hampshire

I travel this intersection daily, please don't ruin it with a roundabout. Will it improve traffic flow? It's possible, but does that really make a difference if you still have to stop at the next 3 out of 4 stop lights until you get past Kentucky. Has anyone ever got stuck at the 19th and Barker roundabout behind a driver that is too nervous to pull through and just has to sit and wait for 10 cars to go by before you can finally get moving? Or the one at Harvard and Monterey way, where everyone speeds up to make sure they can get into the roundabout first? I feel like they are a good idea in theory, but in reality Lawrence isn't known for having the greatest drivers who make the safest and smartest decisions at intersections.
I also agree that they give pedestrians anxiety when trying to cross, especially when there is landscaping in the center and you cannot see who is walking on the other side.
