Would you like to see more or less development in East Lawrence?

Being an Eastsider myself, it sure would be nice to get a grocery store on this side of town. What about the 19th & Haskell commercial (southeast) corner? That could use some new retail establishments, or perhaps we could convert that shopping center to office spaces. Or, if it's not going to be used as is, raze it & build something else, like a grocery store. Other than that, I like what they are doing over here and support the East 9th Street corridor project 100%.

We will be watching from our building. Our third floor gives a great view of McCollum and Daisy Hill.

What was your favorite thing about kindergarten?

My mom says that they tried to get me to go to another class (second grade, maybe?) for reading (because I could read already), but I refused because the time they wanted me to go was the time my kindergarten classmates were watching Sesame Street. So, I would say, watching Sesame Street, LOL!

Mariners' win hurts Royals' playoff hopes

My heart says we can make it but my brain is skeptical... At least we are in the race!

High-speed chase ends with crash

Shaun Hittle & Adam Strunk, making allusions is not a crime. He was "eluding" police, not alluding. Doesn't the L J-W own a dictionary? Geez, I wish they still taught grammar & usage of the English language in schools nowadays...

Plan to raze McCollum Hall in the works

So, you went to KU but you don't know how to spell the word "identical?" And your grammar is atrocious. Did you go to the J-school? Maybe you should ask for your money back. Better yet, go buy a dictionary.

What trees?

I agree 100% with Ms. Evans, and with good reason. They are not only cutting the trees - they are spreading disease from tree to tree. Several years ago, Wright came around and trimmed the trees in our yard using tools that they do not clean or disinfect on a regular basis. They came & hacked several limbs off of our beautiful American Elm tree in our backyard with those filthy tools and infected it with Dutch Elm disease. The leaves began to wilt, then turned yellow, and the tree began to die. Last September we had to pay over $2000 to have the tree removed. The arborist who diagnosed the tree said that it was probably 75 years old. The death of the tree meant no more shade on our house, which kept our AC bills managable, and drove away many birds - we have noticed a considerable decline in the number & variety of birds visiting our feeders. If Westar continues to trim trees using infected tools, Lawrence will soon have no trees at all. Could we at least convince them that their standards of practice are unacceptable? And I'm all for putting the cables underground, Ron - wouldn't that also solve the problem of the trees being in the way?
