Carlos O'Kelly's closes Lawrence location; city set to put more bite into weed ordinance

I don't want to be picky, Chad, but I think 26 years is a little too long. Before Carlos O'Kellys was there, that location was a "Rax," which I believe closed in/about 1992. (I don't remember exactly when, all I know is it was after 1990. I showed up for work one day and the door was locked.) Unless there was a location in Lawrence before that?

Letter: William who?

Thanks for clarifying the logic that Mr. Wysocki obviously failed to grasp.

WOW to begin work later this month on upgrade to boost Internet speeds in city

I'm with you. . .did the same thing. AT&T isn't perfect but i've had so fewer problems than I did with Knology. . .

Plus the fact that they took away one of my favorite channels and had no interest in bringing it back sealed the deal. The multi-room DVR was just a bonus!

Truancy policies can catch parents by surprise

I agree with you 100%. My real problem here is that we don't know for a fact what the facts really are. Did she really never hear anything about this? Not once did the reporter state that.

This story just smacks of one-sidedness.

Hmmm. . .leaving a voicemail tells me that they're "busy." It's in the choices you make. You either take responsibility to make sure that the message gets through, or you leave it to chance that someone is going to get your voicemail or email.

If you're willing to take that chance, great. I'm not. I want to ensure that someone knows, beyond a doubt, that my child is late or absent.

Actually, I did read the article. . .that's how I got down to the bottom of the comments. She said she emailed. . .maybe not the greatest idea in trying to get in touch with a busy elementary school in the morning. Drop by Deerfield some morning and see what the office staff has to deal with. . I'm sure the last thing they're doing is checking email. . .but they're answering the phone.

Two kids at Deerfield and we've never had a problem CALLING the school with a tardy or absence.

One other thing, and maybe I'm just being old-fashioned here... Migraines so bad you can't drive? Maybe emailing the school isn't the answer. How about a phone call? Talk to a (gasp!) live person and explain the situation? You've got a smartphone...be a little smart, here.

Simple, folks...get up on time, call the school if there's a problem getting your kid to school. It's not rocket science. Wouldn't be "unexcused" or "tardy" if you pulled your head out of your "fifth point of contact" and did the right thing. Be responsible and raise responsible children.

Lawrence ranked second-worst-performing small metro area, according to new national economic index

"And this is a complete surprise" said nobody, ever.
