Lawrence wants property to house multimillion dollar police headquarters

What do police do in a building that is so "unique" that it can't be accommodated in a retrofitted structure? I imagine they mostly need office space, maybe some lab space, secure storage, rooms for meetings and interrogations, etc. There is a place for shooting guns in the community building downtown, so even that function can be shoehorned into an existing space.

Lawhorn's Lawrence: 150 years later, Quantrill's Raid is still personal

Certainly Lawrence's abolitionists were right when it came to the question of slavery. But Kehde's statement is a little bit simplistic, and to sweepingly claim the moral high ground ignores the long and shameful history of segregation that permeates Lawrence's history.

Once home to a university-run high school, nearly century-old KU building demolished

If this building was structurally unsound, it became so because KU ceased to maintain it. What I don't understand is why the local preservation community allowed this building to fall with so little interest/protest?

City balks at plan to allow motorists to use credit cards for new downtown parking garage

The KU parking garage IS gated. The machine at the exit accepts only credit/debit cards; if you want to use cash, you have to prepay through a machine in the stairwell of the garage before you leave. KU makes a profit by charging 1.25/hr to park in the garage, and by not pro-rating partial hours--if you park there for 10 minutes, you are charged for a whole hour.

Burt Hall razed to rubble to make room for KU Engineering campus expansion

I've been waiting for this as well. I thought--*hoped*--KU was remodeling it. I was horrified last Friday morning when I got to work and found they had just scraped it off the hillside.

Lawrence residents say new garbage cans are stinking up the city

I think this is what might be described as a "1st world problem."

Budget advances with 'devastating' cuts to KU

What evidence do either of you have that "professors rarely show up in classrooms" or "only a rare few even show for office hours"? I can't speak for every KU department, but the faculty in my department work hard to prepare for classes and to engage their students. If anyone is failing to show up, it's the students, who may be present in body but are often AWOL in spirit, thanks to phones and Facebook.

New owner looking for restaurant tenant for former Joe's Bakery location

Ummm...the original Joe's WAS in operation during Roy William's time at KU.

Letter: A masterpiece?

Um...don't you already have trash cans? What did you used to do to protect humanity from the sight of your trash containers?
