City has limited recourse after 3 acres of neighborhood's mature trees were bulldozed

You obviously don't live in the neighborhood, which means you don't appreciate the quality of the area and value it the way the residents do. Judging by your words you also wouldn't have been willing to put in the time and effort they did to keep an evil corporation like Gilbane from bullying their way into development by harassing the daycare owners and pushing for the destruction of the treeline. Unlike you, they care about their neighbors and the surrounding area and were willing to fight for it instead of settling. They don't need to get over themselves. Everyone else, like you, needs to grow a spine and follow their example. The whole city would be better for it.

City has limited recourse after 3 acres of neighborhood's mature trees were bulldozed

The owner of the property just made it way harder for him to sell off the land. Serves him right for throwing his destructive little temper tantrum. Small consolation for the wildlife he drove from the area and the property owners whose homes just lost value, but it's something.

Man zips around Lawrence streets in custom-built Batmobile

how is it that this is a story about someone who lives in Lawrence and drives this car around Lawrence, yet the Lawrence newspaper couldn't get a photo of the car to accompany their article about it? Instead they have a link to a story in the Topeka newspaper? Is the staff at the Journal World really that lazy?

Feds want answers from Kansas anti-abortion activist

if someone sends a threatening letter to another person, while at the same time openly approving the murder of a similar person for similar reasons, it absolutely does matter. any sensible person would agree.

Sound Off: Is it a crime to destroy campaign signs? What can you do about it? Someone keeps destroyi

in today's political climate, the us versus them mentality dictates everything. the candidate themselves are irrelevant. it's all about belonging to a party and standing by that party regardless of what it's members say or do.
members of both parties are constantly being caught in scandals, called out on their lies by fact checkers, forced to apologize for inappropriate behavior or comments, and otherwise having every fault and deficiency exposed to the 24 hour news cycle addicted public. but none of this has any effect on the zombie like party loyalty of the voters.
with that being said, why would anyone in their right mind think that something as simple as a paper sign in their front yard would have even the slightest chance of altering someone elses political opinion?
the only purpose of these signs is to agitate and provoke, and no one is more susceptible to this kind of childish behavior than the internet addicted party loyalists.
