Trial delayed for quadruple murder in Kansas

This is ridiculous. Takes 3 years to put away a guy guilty as sin who already previously shot someone and has had a long history of run ins with the law. I bet the 4 souls who are no longer here wish they had gotten an extra 3 years of life.

Lawsuit filed against city over denial of south Iowa Street shopping center

I don't really have a dog in this fight since I commute from Ottawa to Lawrence every day for work and don't live here. But I was glad they shot this deal down. My favorite part of the commute is looking into those fields and seeing the deer, turkeys and geese almost daily. Much rather see wildlife than a shoe store..

Kansas residents now have higher taxes but less gun regulation

I like how the title of this news article ties gun control to higher taxes as if the two had anything to do with each other.

9,800 marijuana plants found on Corps property near Perry Lake

Have you not seen what it takes to maintain a garden like that on TV? 10,000 plants is a lot and covers a large area. That's not one or two plants in the back yard man. Think about the water usage and the means to divert it to the plants. Then there is the chemicals used to fertilize and feed the plants. I haven't seen the area, but imagine it was similar to what you might see on a North California bust. Bottom line, its public ground and its a crime against the public. That large patch of CRP grass or brush thickets or what ever area it was could very well be home to a variety of species. Just because Kansas has an abundance of flat prairie ground, that doesn't mean nothing lives there. If you want to grow dope and not get nailed, best do it well away from public ground. That's just common sense.

Passenger rail service between Lawrence, western Kansas at risk

I am still trying to figure out why there isn't a rout between KC and Denver.

Body found off Kansas Highway 10 identified as 37-year-old shelter resident

Seems to me that the location for the shelter only adds to the plight of those utilizing it. Granted, nothing is free and people should do all they can to avoid having to go to the shelter. That said, the people that do utilize the shelter shouldn't have to worry about walking along side a 4 lane highway into town to look for employment, housing and other opportunities to better their lives. Truth be told, I would bet that the decision to locate the shelter on the outer most realm of Lawrence had more to do with a "Not in my back yard" policy fueled by the wealthy people running the show down town. Talk about sweeping the problem under the rug. My prayers go out to the young man who passed away.
