City to consider limiting dogs in public cemeteries

That would be all I need is to leave my family unexpectedly and wishing I could still be with them, then a dog comes by and drops a load on my face for me to stare at for the next three months!

Simons' Saturday Column: Obama’s decision on war important and complex

This is a good time to force the UN to require countries to join together and engage in this conflict. If the UN won't do that then the US must stay out of the conflict.
I am opposed to the use of gas on innocent people and agree with the President that this type of activity must be stopped. I am also opposed to America going at it alone. We must have other countries support, financially and physically, in order to show the world's dislike for this behavior.
America can't save the world and in this case it may be best to let the conflict continue to show its ugly hand until the world says this is enough.

Simons' Saturday Column: Obama’s decision on war important and complex

The Syrian conflict is a difficult choice for America and we need to think carefully about getting into another conflict. We may think this is a bomb a few times and our job is done, but in past conflicts America had to spend money to rebuild that country.
Since a majority of the UN chooses not to intervene America should do the same. What sense does it make to get involved in a civil conflict and a few years later the country does not want to be our friend?
America has many problems at home and money spent in this conflict could be spent helping Americans at home.
Unless there is serious risk to Homeland Security - America should sit this one out!

City of Lawrence to consider running events expected to bring thousands downtown

Good idea by city to insure funding for sanitation and safety are supported by the event. The police officers and sanitation crews time for these events should not be a financial burden to the taxpayer.

CVS stores requiring ID to buy nail polish remover in effort to combat meth

The Lawrence police will be targeting all pink cars carrying nail polish and mascara in the new armored car. Mary K salespeople beware!

Armored vehicle, recently bought by Lawrence police with federal grant, appearing on city streets

A used bank truck could have been bought instead, the VanGo students could have done the paint job and the run flat tires could have been bought from the recycling center. The cost savings could have been 100k and went to the police fund or tickets to the KU BBall games.

Why not a armored mini-cooper they can hold up to 20 cops?

Police break string of high-dollar burglaries, continue to investigate

A new central police station may not meet the needs of a growing Lawrence. Currently, the LPD has two locations. Repair/upgrades to the existing ones and a smaller new one in another location will provide regional support, similar to precincts in larger metropolitan areas.

Concept plan for 5K, 10K trails at Rock Chalk Park emerges

I like the idea. The trails provide anyone with the opportunity to train, or just leisurely exercise in a safe area. The cost needs to be worked out but the concept is good. While people are enjoying the RCP activities others can participate in their own way.
Special fund raiser runs can be held without running in traffic and the distances will be known. The city could also require a small percentage from the fun run to offset the maintenance costs.
Numerous athletic events are increasing in popularity, duathlons, triathlons, etc, and these activities fit the idea of the RCP.
For all those that oppose the trails or exercising in general, maybe Lawrence can put a restaurant nearby for you to sit, watch, and eat, while others get healthy!

Indian tribe that once proposed North Lawrence casino purchases large tract along interstate

The acquisition is great for Lawrence. Casinos bring hotels, grocery stores, and jobs. North Lawrence needs help in business growth and now they have it. The revenue from the business growth will help Lawrence in public funds.
