Simons' Saturday Column: Focus on sports, athletes has gotten out of whack

Well said. Since so many Simon articles have been published with a negative stance about the Rock Chalk Park project and the underlying negative personal relationship with Fritzels, one must wonder if the local paper is being leveraged.

But a vacant lot with a Johnny on the spot at 9th and New Hampshire is not a blight? Come on...

Leader of local food bank files for seat on Lawrence City Commission

A group of citizens interested in relieving the residents of Lawrence's tax burden by growing our lacking commercial sector.

We'd love to hear what you think anytime _bozo_, but we'd prefer if it were positive and not anonymous.

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

Out of curiosity, who is to say what is and is not necessary for the City of Lawrence?

Town Talk: Rumors of AT&T Wireless and Chipotle headed to new S. Iowa building; new group forms to discuss diversity of City Hall leadership; open house set for proposed West Lawrence interchange

The reception was Tuesday so they didn't announce it publicly until then. I'm sure you could call Darlene (Class of 2012) at the Chamber and she'd happily tell you.

It seems like large international companies like these would do their homework before they start throwing money around at Lawrence, KS. If there wasn't demand I doubt they would provide the supply.

Lawrence is a small city that attracts shoppers from Jefferson, Shawnee, and Riley counties as well as our almost 100,000 citizen population. I'm sure the demand is there.

Not that either Chad or Leslie Soden suggested that the lack of diversity is a racial issue as much as about gender, I would like to remind readers that Lawrence isn't that diverse to begin with. According to the 2010 U.S. Census Lawrence's demographics are as follows: 82.0% White, 4.7% African American, 3.1% Native American, 4.5% Asian, 0.1Pacific Islander, 1.5% from other races, and 4.1% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 5.7% of the population. So of the 18% of non-Whites, how many are interested/qualified enough to run a successful campaign, much less even of age? Lawrence is split almost 50/50 male to female, and here I would have to agree that women are just too smart to put up with regular weekly meetings, abuse from the general public on the LJWorld comment section, and constant complaining from their constituency all for $9,000 per year.

There is no conspiracy there, just life being true to the numbers. Maybe Leslie will run for commissioner when she's done with her Leadership Lawrence class this year.
