State seeking proposal to develop resort at Clinton Lake State Park

Good lord! You all act like they're going to throw this hotel out there, get rid of all the camping and trees and then somehow make you pay for it. I frequent the lake and am excited about an idea like this. Lawrence needs a reason for people to come here, they don't come for our downtown, trust me. If it does go in, there could be improvements to the park and the lake!

City manager forecasting increase in city's general fund property tax rate for 2014 budget

If we become more business friendly, and allow more jobs sales tax will go up and help take care of our shortfall. If we keep the doors shut and don't allow anyone in or allow any change, guess who gets to pay? The people that are still here.

City commissioners to consider final approvals for Menards project

No to apartments and YES to Menards! If people wonder why we are losing tax dollars to other areas, it's because other areas have more options! I would prefer Lowes, but Menards would be better than nothing!

Change in state law expected to produce fewer historic preservation reviews in Lawrence

"Historic" downtown and the HRC is a joke. Downtown is a bar district in old crumbling buildings, and bum haven. Let people fix the buildings up, and let the businesses prosper.
