Letter: Traffic priorities

John, bike usage will only improve or increase when Lawrence completes the bike lanes that they have already started. Also, have you ever had to slow down or wait to get around a cyclists because the cyclist did not have access to a bike lane? How is this for good for traffic? Students are back and I watch this happen every year especially, on Kentucky and Tennessee street. Sure, those cyclist should probably choose different paths but the point remains. Lawrence can't have only half the city for bike lanes and expect to see a rise in cyclist activity. Many of us simply do not ride because Lawrence is not bike friendly with uncompleted paths. Cars, cyclists and pedestrians all should have "safe and completed paths". We are now paying for the poor planning for these bike lanes that should have been included years ago.

Letter: Traffic priorities

I have resided in Lawrence since 93' and have rode my bike for exercise and also to get to work. I felt it was a great way to get exercise, keep fit and it was good for the environment. After several incidents, mostly due to lack of bike lanes or uncompleted bike lanes and safety, I quit riding to work. After my buddy got hit while riding his bike, I decided it was just not worth it! I feel the city of Lawrence is attempting to fix this problem of "uncompleted bike lanes" and I am glad to see it happening. Kudos to those who keep fighting for bikers! I don't feel I am the only one that feels this about bike lanes in Lawrence. I think cars, bikes and pedestrians should all be considered in improving or constructing new streets in town. I do not see how constructing and completing safer bike lanes is a bad thing?

Maybe more people would ride their bikes in Lawrence, if Lawrence had more bike paths?

Letter: ALEC agenda

At least Richard Heckler posts "facts" instead of fiction and name calling. Thanks Mr. Heckler for posting material that we can research for ourselves and learn what you have posted. Keep up the good fight! I may or may not agree with all of your posts but at least you give the readers a opportunity to decide for themselves.

Kansas agency bans employees from electronic recording

The "no exception rule" is to protect the guilty! If an employee can produce an electronic recording of a wrongdoing or harassment situation then it should be permissible! If not, sure then proceed with disciplinary action.

Opinion: So, Donald Trump is number one?

Our political system remains broken and corrupted by greed. Most of candidates start off believing they can make a real difference and fix our nation's problems. After elected, they find out who really "runs the show" (Big Businesses). Even when solutions are available, both parties can never agree or compromise for the good of our country. On that note, I feel Bernie will make a much better "puppet" than Donald!
