Super 8 owner who stabbed his wife gets probation; family's religion played role in judge's decision

How, exactly, is his family supposed to "ensure his sobriety"? You can't make someone be sober. If you could then alcoholism wouldn't exist.
For every alcohol like there's at least 10 people that want them to be sober. They clearly couldn't keep him sober before the sober, so what makes them think they can keep him sober now?
And, he obviously wasn't completely committed to his Hindu religion. Hindus believe that drinking is the path to hell, therefore he would've been ostracized for that. He is using his religion as an excuse to get out of jail when he clearly was not adhering to it before .

20-year-old Lawrence woman stabbed while out for a walk

I do. I love listening to the scanner as background noise, but by all means, if you enjoy watching the mindless drivel on cable go ahead. I won't call you names for it. ;)

Armed man robs Dollar General in North Lawrence; suspect at large

Can we possibly have a more vague description?
Come on, LPD. You have a height/weight or hair color?
This description matches 2 men sitting in my living room if they changed clothes.

Not an 'out there' problem: Domestic violence in Lawrence

It's very sad, just recently, like this week, the district attorney refuse to file charges against someone for breaking a protection from stalking order. This is a very clear message to the abuser that there is no consequences for breaking these orders, which will probably lead to escalation. It also sends a very clear message to victims that there is no consequences for the abuser, and that calling the police and file a report will
only serve to confirm to the abuser that it's OK to continue this behavior. It's a sad day when calling the police just make things worse.
In my own real life experience The police officers have often treated me like I deserve the abuse, that I somehow asked for it, or that it was made up because I wasn't injured badly enough. Not once has a police officer ever given me the phone numbers of resources available to victims of domestic violence.
Calling the police is not an option anymore for most of us. Sadly.

Opinion: Spanking not necessarily child abuse

I just love how hard the author tries to justify hitting children simply because she was hit as a child and turned out fine. In fact, she hit her kids too. I'm sure she would say they are fine too-and that may be the case.
Some women drink when their pregnant and their kids have no apparent il effects? So does that mean it's ok? No.
It's easy to justify the other side if this lame argument. Hitting is wrong. Using pain and fear to control a weaker persons behavior is wrong. How can anyone justify it?

Despite fewer cars, Douglas County Fair's demolition derby remains as popular as ever

It's $10.00 for a few hours of fun, and a great fundraiser for the 4-H clubs. Refunds? really? chill out.
