Off the Beaten Plate: Bill Self Pasta at 23rd Street Brewery

I agree with previous posters. $15.99 for Mac and Cheese and buffalo strips?!? That's nuts! I'm pretty sure several restaurants in Lawrence, including Johnny's West and The Alvabar, offer the same dish for less! Plus, it is extremely unhealthy. My family and I used to eat at 23rd Street often, until one day it started costing way more than the experience or the food was worth.

Letter: Gun fears unfounded

Yes, generally, you can only stop a gun with a gun. I'm sure there are unique circumstances in which a shooter has been stopped in other ways but the odds of that happening are not as likely. So no, as long as there are armed "good guys" guns are not unstoppable. One thing that can not be disputed is that mental health can not stop a gun.

City commissioner to host meeting Thursday on improving storm shelter availability

Most schools do not have guards or even trained personnel. Even if they did, what good would that be if those people are able to be armed to protect?

Letter: Food stamps vital

Not true......I watch the same woman buy a package of donuts and a Monster energy drink every morning at the gas station. In addition, I worked as a cashier through college and was shocked at what people can buy with food stamps!

Yes, examples can be found if you google conceal and carry stops crime.

Letter: Gun fears unfounded

I beg to differ. Are you telling me that the principal of Sandy Hook, that ran towards the gun man, would not have been able to stop him had she been armed and educated on gun defense? I would also imagine that if a movie patron had been armed they could have taken James Holmes down as he went from aisle to aisle gunning people down in Aurora. I won't pretend that armed citizens can stop gunmen in all circumstances but they can at least protect themselves and possibly others. Those who are not armed can not protect anyone EVER!

Day 2: From the Emerald Triangle to the Sunflower State

Not the same age, not even close. McAtee was a detective before these boys even hit high school.

Weekday graduations get mixed reviews from parents and families

When I graduated High School in 1999 I had over 15 relatives travel from other states, some as far as California. I am sure I was not the exception. In addition, taking off a Friday or Monday to travel is mush easier than taking off three-four days mid week.

Two men arrested in connection with Sunday morning shooting

Most bars close at 2:00 because it is illegal to serve alcohol after that, however a few stay open later under the pretense that they stop serving at 2:00.
