Thunderstorm knocks out power for thousands of Lawrence residents

Hey Matthew Herbert, maybe if you cut dead trees down, they wouldn't fall through the roof. I live next door to one of your rental properties and there are several dead trees/limbs just ready to come down in a storm - some directly in the path of our roof. Not to mention the pile of dead tree brush that was just left behind the property. Maybe another LJWorld article would motivate you to clean up your rentals?

At least 59 killed, 527 wounded as gunman opens fire at Las Vegas concert; worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history

Although I chimed in myself earlier, I can't help but notice that this turned into a debate on gun control, instead of talking about the event itself.

I have been watching the news coverage on this for most of the evening and I have to say that although this is one of the most tragic and senseless events in recent history, I have also seen and heard some amazing things about strangers coming together and even risking their own lives for others. Someone said something on the news to the effect that you saw ordinary people, helping ordinary people. This tragic day has a positive glow to it in seeing the humanity and the good in people. No one cared about race, religion, gender, etc...they just came together and helped one another.

My heart goes out to everyone who were/are involved.

Fred, please stop twisting the Second Amendment - Word for word:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Where does it mention the British anywhere? Whether that is what was happening back then, or not...it does not mention that you can *only* bear arms if you are defending yourselves against the British.

KU gun mystery still unsolved; stolen revolver found in bathroom had been missing for a year

How is this news? Was it used in a crime? "Where has it been, who’s been carrying it...." This is like doing a story on wheresgeorge.com dollar bills.

Local group wants Lawrence residents to vote against $116M citywide sales tax renewal

Even if it did enhance property values, higher property values = higher property taxes for the homeowner.

State employee pay raises spark confusion, resentment

Is it possible to ever stop blaming one party, or another? I think that's the biggest problem...we are always blaming someone else and not doing anything together.

Commercial property that owes city, county $180K in back taxes sells for $1 at auction; east side shopping center in foreclosure

Why would you think the businesses are being replaced already? The article clearly states "Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean the businesses in the shopping center have to close. It may mean they will be getting a new landlord."
