Lawrence teachers wary of bill holding them criminally liable for harmful material

Fortunately most teachers try very hard to follow course curriculum set by the school districts, unfortunately there are a small segment of teachers and administrators that feel they can teach what ever they think is right. If this small group would just go through the proper procedure each year to change the curriculum using a forum of teacher, administrators and parents this could be avoided. Somewhere along the process many educators get lost in the fact that these children and young adults are not their children and don't get to decide what they get teach them.

Law enforcement officers in Lawrence don't use body-mounted cameras

I want to pose a question! What if your boss handed you a body camera that records video and sound and told you to wear it for 8 hours and you you couldnt turn it off for any discussions. How would you feel after all you are working and getting paid by him. What is next, teachers, fireman, probation officers, college professors or daycare provider/babysitters.

Planning Commission recommends denial of major shopping center along SLT

Someone explain to me how a bunch of citizens that have been appointed to a planning commission seem to know more about retail business than a group of investors that make a living at it. Seems like Lawrence is all for spending millions on projects that cost money and then refuses to let business into Lawrence to pay for all those projects that never produce anything but bills. I for one am tired of being the total source of revenue for this town in property taxes. This town mutilates a retail project so much just to get approval of government that the projects always fail. A perfect example is the 6th and Wakarusa Walmart, customers that live in the area still go to the 33rd an Iowa store because it was so downsized most customers can't do all their shopping at the Wakarusa store.

Opinion: Accusations paralyzing government

I guess the problem I have with this article is the one sided aspect. There is plenty of blame to go around democrat and republican but all it talks about is republican. The lack of holding the dems to the same level is one sided which makes the whole article invalid because of its one sided perspective.

Lawhorn's Lawrence: Three decades of defending and judging those in Lawrence's justice system

Good kids come from poor families! Bad kids come from rich or middle class families also. I'm referring to criminal behaviors being passed on by family members. One opinion reference one topic doesnt make the judge a bad judge!

Lawhorn's Lawrence: Three decades of defending and judging those in Lawrence's justice system

Judge McGrath is a fine judge and a better human being. He is stating the obvious, over the years he has realized what most in the judicial system already know children have learned a lot of their beliefs at a very young age. Those beliefs are learned by the environment they live in and the people they are brought up around. It is sad, generation after generation you see the same families showing up in front of a judge displaying the same behaviors as the prior generation. Its sad and can't be ignored. I have been lucky to know Judge McGrath as a judge, and a friend for years you cant find a finer or fairer person around. He is entitled to his opinions, it just now he can say them ouloud!
