Put down those disposables: Parents embrace old diaper ways

"a single disposable diaper can take up to 500 years to biodegrade in the landfill."

And Aiko the point is that some people do have health issues with disposables, not to make you feel bad. We started out in them until we experienced horrible chemical burns on more than 1 occasion. After the chemical burns (caused by Pampers, Luvs and 2 generic brands) I had to look for other options. Ended up using G-diapers with the flushable insert.

New development slated for Bob Billings and SLT may land a grocery store

I live on the West side and would welcome a Whole Foods, Red Lobster, or Olive Garden. Lawrence is big enough to support these businesses and quite frankly, I get tired of driving to Topeka or KC to patron businesses we don't have here. Agree the Merc is overpriced. I personally know people in Topeka who would come here for Whole Foods instead of KC. As for North Lawrence...talk about dilapidated!! Why would any business want to start up in that demographic???

Plant operators working to control another round of taste and odor problems in city's drinking water

"Emporia is a repeat winner, having now taken first place in Kansas in five out of the total of eleven contests held since 2001 at the annual conference,” reported Association General Manager Elmer Ronnebaum. Water from Emporia will be entered in the Great American Taste Test early in 2012 in Washington, D.C. in the annual contest sponsored by the National Rural Water Association. The Neosho River is utilized as the principal source of supply, with the Cottonwood River as an auxiliary source.

We obviously live on the wrong river.

It's not really cashing out when they are in debt 752 million and only selling for 750.

Give them time. They just announced the merger today, they haven't actually made the conversion yet.

Man flown to KU Hospital after jumping from car driving across Kansas River bridge

Sure...I mistype words all the time. But I make sure I spell check before I post comments. And for someone who says their favorite book is the dictionary...I expect more. Especially if they are going to criticize someone else's comment, which was just as much within their 1st Amendment right to post.

You are the one insulting people's intelligence, and then you use a word you don't even know how to spell! Who's pretending to be intelligent?

Um...is chasizing even a word? Pretty sure it's 'chastise'.
