Early breast cancer detection program works — if women know about it

I'm a firm believer in mammograms. I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer at the age of 45. My tumor could not be felt...not by me, my primary care physician, my surgeon or my was only detected with a mammogram. I had no family history and ended up with a double mastectomy, 6 months of chemo and 6 weeks of radiation. A mammogram can save your did mine.

KU showing off sustainability program with parking lot

I just hope they wait and see if this really is as cost effective as they think before they start tearing up lots all over campus. Also, I'm curious as to how many parking stalls will be lost. I guess none of it really matters...knowing our KU administrators, they'll put whatever spin they want to on it to make themselves look good.

Junction City properties owned in part by Rock Chalk Park developer going to auction for unpaid taxes and fees

Junction City officials are probably shaking their heads and laughing their butts off. The City Commissioners knew this before giving final appoval. This is so embarrassing for Lawrence.

City Commission approves Rock Chalk Park

Gee mikekt, you better be careful...your comments may be construed as venomous and offensive to some City Commissioners -- LOL!! Okay, maybe that comment was out of line...I'll slap myself on the hand.

As for Mike Amyx...I sure wish we could clone him. I may not agree with him 100% of the time, but I agree with him a heck of a lot more than any of the other commissioners and I feel like he best represents my views.

City Commission approves Rock Chalk Park

"After another citizen complained about the secrecy surrounding the project, Commissioner Jeremy Farmer said that the “venomous and offensive” commentary often heard in Lawrence is unproductive and called for more civility in local politics"

Mr. Farmer, please remember that as a City Commissioner, you work for ALL of the citizens of Lawrence, not just the long list of Fritzels who very generously donated to your campaign. As taxpayers, we are entitled to express our opinions of city government both publicly and privately. By referring to these comments as "venonmous and offensive" you do not endear yourself to the public you are supposedly serving. Have the comments at times been negative and critical...yes. Have they been true...most of the time, yes. Are they important...absolutely!! Simply because some of your constituents disagree with you does not make them wrong or uncivil or unproductive. I believe the citizens of Lawrence (and especially the person who complained about the secrecy) are entitled to a public apology.

KU Endowment announces $1 million unrestricted gift from alumna, based on late husband's wishes

Yes, I know it's none of my business and the Meeks are very generous people, but I sure wish this would have gone for scholarships or at least had some restrictions on how the funds could be spent. I guess the Chancellor will be receiving another 13-14% pay increase while faculty and staff see nothing and students pay more for tuition.
