Expert on livable communities to evaluate Barker neighborhood

LOL! They don't even have sidewalks! I wonder what the EXPERT would have to say about North Lawrence as a "livable" community.....we have sidewalks, hap-hazard as they may be, BUT... we don't even have a Grocery Store!!

Citizen's petition calls for smoking ban on Massachusetts Street

Mike, I would just like to say that Ms. Kapfer is NOT representative of the citizens of Lawrence. We are glad you are here and you have expressed an opinion. As you have found in these comments, most of us are very passionate with our opinions, as are you. I commend you for starting a petition for what you feel is a worthy cause that you wish to do something about. That is a far greater attribute than most of us have. It is much easier to complain than it is to actually take the time to do something.... While I do not agree with your cause, I wish you luck in your endeavor, for your sake, not mine. Should you not make headway, I truly hope you will be able to find an agreeable solution that suits you and your family without any undue hard feelings for those who enjoy the freedoms Lawrence has to offer. The very fact that Lawrence is a "small" town compared to New York City is what affords us those freedoms not found elsewhere.

I believe there is and has been a bar/eating establishment in the neighborhood for many, many years; right on the corner of 9th & Pennsylvania?

Homeless shelter seeks $725,000 loan from city

You have got to be kidding!!? They have been in this building for, what, 7 months and now need a new roof. There is no way possible for anyone to convince me that SOMEONE was not aware of the "roof issues" prior to the purchase of that building. Just one more thing we are being blind-sided with and our City Leaders? want us to use our tax dollars, again? For Charity?? NOT GOOD BUSINESS! The City is already running at a deficit with the New Library (Garage) and Rock Chalk Park.....I say to the City "mind your OWN business".
Oh by the way, I'm looking for a $75,000 loan to upgrade my home....it seems I will be needing a new roof, furn/ac unit, hot water heater and a new kitchen....you know, those pesky little maintenance items that come around every 15-20 years or so. While you are drawing up those loan papers for me, I want that at...oh, let's say....a .005 Interest Rate. That's right folks, it's "Name Your Own Rate"!

Summer road construction a necessary evil for Lawrence drivers and businesses

I would like to know why, whoever is in charge of setting the lights....presumably someone with the city, can't get the lights set correctly. This is an issue every time the orange cones go up closing off the left lane going across the bridge. Which, by the way is closed more than it is open.... If you will notice, all of the traffic issues occur only because all 3 of the lights (Kentucky, Vermont and Mass) are set backwards. The first light s to turn green are Mass, Vermont, then Kentucky....during this time all of the traffic Eastbound traffic sits and waits...and wait....and waits some more. Here goes RED....First at Mass, then Vermont and lastly... Kentucky. The only time the eastbound traffic can move is when the lights at Mass and Vermont are already RED, leaving no room for the traffic coming on from Kentucky. It is so irritating to be sitting through 3 or 4 lights and watching the sequences of Red, Yellow and Green, knowing that if ANYONE at the City (incl the police force) cared enough to notice....it would be so simple to see and fix! Heaven forbid if someone in line is not paying attention and doesn't move with the rest of the traffic OR worse yet....there is someone in the northbound turn lane that needs in the straight eastbound lane! Those people will sometimes stop before a GREEN light instead of first going through. What an aggravation!
