Local businesses boycotted by Black Lives Matter group say action is misguided

Personally I believe in ALL LIVES MATTER (red, yellow, black, white etc...) so I will boycott any store that bows down to this group...

Editorial: Noise is not progress

Totally agree. If the BLM would treat the board with a little respect, tehn I would might have listened to them. If other groups would do what BLM did, there would be a public outcry.

School board members want review of investigation into alleged racist remarks by teacher

I find it hard to fathom that a teacher of 17 years all of sudden becomes a racist..

Also, do all kids (regardless of race) get in trouble for using the N-word or do some groups get a pass?

Fighting continues over anti-union bill

Does any know if Koch Industries allows a payroll deduction to their PAC? If the Unions are allowed to do it, why should ALL other PACs be allowed. Isn't it fair????

Lawrence school board’s goals outlined for bond issue

For everyone blaming the 2005 bond issue on Dr. Doll, he wasn't here then... He was selected to succeed Randy Weseman in March 2009.

So Randy Weseman created this problem & should be held accountable.

What do the spend the capital money they get every year on outside of the bond issue? Maybe the person to go is the person in charge of facilities? He has been here for years.

KU business school positions itself to maintain strong MBA program

KU has a unique view on their MBA program. I was told that if you want to attend classes in lawrence, you have to be a full time MBA student but if you want to go part time, you must go to the Edwards Campus.

I would like to get my MBA from KU but I live in Lawrence & work in Topeka so I would have to drive to Overland Park to get my MBA on a part time basis.

City, school district considering lights for Free State High School's tennis courts

It is about time. Before the district decided to build the sports facilities at LHS - didn't those court have lights??? Yes they did... People who play tennis were only wanting to have want they had before the district choose to relocate the courts.

Tennis lighting

Putting lights at Free State is a great idea... heck maybe they will add some more courts there too. We need to add more things to Free State and not worry about LHS. Heck, if any of their tennis players want to practice later at night, it is good for them to travel to Free State and practice instead of going to LHS.

Threat to democracy

That would be great. Also, make all politicians have to use public money - Obama said we would do it, then back off...

Also, let's go one step further.... if the President is out campaigning for his/her re-election or someone else, why should the US taxpayer have to foot the bill, why can't the campaigns pay for the costs?

One more.... No elected official who currently holds an office should be allowed to campaign for a higher office unless their term is expiring after the current election. I am tired of Congressmen running for higher national offices and not VOTING.

There should only be two options on voting on a bill. YES or NO. I am tired of hearing about how many times Obama VOTED PRESENT instead of Yes or NO.
