Would you shop at Menards if it came to Lawrence?

Absolutely. You can get some pretty solid stuff there for a good price. Last year even with driving to Topeka, I saved more on purchasing patio pavers and landscape rocks than buying at Home Depot.

Southern Baptist leader says yoga is not Christian

Jesus was definitely against yoga. On a regular basis He told others to, "Pick up your mat and walk!"

Incoming KU student faces deportation after arrest

I certainly agree with you too Godot. If one is here and shows that they want to help make not only the country better, but themselves better in the process then let them get citizenship easily with the test. These are the individuals that we don't want weeded out!

County commission agrees to 9 percent property tax increase

A protest is all fine and dandy but I did write to the commissioners and Nancy basically told me that she was glad I emailed her but this is what SHE thought was important. I'm sorry but I thought elected officials were suppose to represent us. Whether she meant to say it the way she did, the words she used spoke of her ideas and what she thought was important. If she was truly an elected official, then shouldn't she be listening to our comments, emails, and other communication?

Lawrence city commissioners to set maximum spending levels for 2011

The point is that money is tight everywhere. When our business or place of employment has a tough year we have to deal without getting a raise until things rebound. Why isn't that a good reason for the city or county employees to deal without? We are basically their employers (and I don't say that to demean), but if our pocketbooks are tight and running low then how in the world can we shell out more simply so they can get a raise? The people of this city are on tight and contracting budgets which should mean the city does not expand a bunch of services or give raises.

Lawrence city commissioners to set maximum spending levels for 2011

I haven't gotten a raise in over 3 years so no way should the city workers be getting another raise! This is completely bogus. Commissioners are trying to balance by increasing the top line when they should be trimming and not expanding anything until growth returns. This will further damage the economy in Lawrence. Less to spend in Lawrence means fewer funds. Moving out of town seems more and more likely all the time.

Douglas County commissioners open budget hearings, discussion of 16.6 percent property tax increase

So honestly, what can we do about this? Is it phone calls to our commissioners?

Douglas County commissioners open budget hearings, discussion of 16.6 percent property tax increase

Is there any way to protest this? The county tax might be low, but our overall tax is not. Families can not take on an additional 16% in property taxes. This will further canabalize the state and federal income tax requirements which will mean they need to raise taxes too! Cut spending and delay those projects!
