Why were ticket holders turned away from Obama’s speech at KU? President was in the building

The tickets were free get over it. Why if your child was so sick and you were up all night would you take them out. A good parent would have them in bed resting, not exposing them for others to get sick.

Lawrence leaders get behind-the-scenes look at curbside recycling program

Why didn't we get them over here in the mobile home courts? I also know other people who didn't get them either.

The future of a new Lawrence police headquarters? Five questions

I said no too! I also live on the East side by the 4 - h fairgrounds. You think it's all about the sales tax, but that's only half of it. Police never seem to help when you need them and are always harassing the low income... yeah that's what we need higher tax so they mess with us even more!

Lawrence Board of Realtors endorses police headquarters sales tax

Hell No! With everything going up and nobody getting a raise these days, we low income can not afford anymore increase as it is, try putting something useful on the East side if you feel the need to spend money. We don't need anymore police stations like on the west side that does nothing but give moving violations!

My brother is not scum. You have no right to judge he is still mentally ill and Bert Nash still hasn't even seen him yet if you want to put the blame on something why don't you put the blame on our mental health care in this country.

Police say man intended to crash into sheriff's vehicle on Clinton Lake Dam

If he really wanted to "murder" him, he could of waited till he was out of his car, or tried to ram his car off a cliff ect... no he didn't he hit him from the rear end. I'm not saying he needs off or not be punished for what he did or even that the victims life had lesser value. I'm not blaming who could of avoided this, but he wasn't red lining it, he took the mini van not the car. Why wasn't he charged? The text message records show that he had no intend of hurting anyone, it was a last second thing. I pray for you that heaven forbid you do anything wrong I don't go looking for the worse punishment possible as a way to solve it.

Police say man intended to crash into sheriff's vehicle on Clinton Lake Dam

Because I have children, job, and a life of my own. He had called me around lunch time and was able to defuse him and told him to call for help, which he did. The police told him they wouldn't do nothing and to wait till the hearing. The phone call he made right before the accident was just after I picked up my kids from school and he would not tell me his location. Not at anytime during the call did he mention hitting anybody, as four other callers were linked to the call to testify to that. I assist helping him! I don't have a wand to fix it, in fact my husband went over three times during the past week to help him, he was beyond friend or family help and no one would step in, and all the police would do was fuel him.

Witness: 12-year-old struck by car in downtown Lawrence 'flew 30 feet'

what I really like you know it is where in the article Did it State where her parents were she was 12 years old shouldn't have been roaming around downtown Lawrence by herself also you're not really paying attention if you're looking at your cellphone specially if you're only four feet into the crosswalk not making excuses for the driver but there's probably a reason why he wasn't cited I think people will be driving a little bit easier if the idiots running the city of Lawrence wouldn't be closing so many streets all at once.
