Why does it have to be facebook . $$$$$$$$$ I don't suppose it really makes a difference because my first post didn't make it up here. It did not contain profanity just my opinion . Why cant it by tied to our subscription ?

City receives seven proposed sites for police headquarters building

The site closest to the jail makes the most sense . It is one of the least expensive options and would save time transporting to jail and it is still not far from the courthouse. Besides that everyone knows all of us on the eastside steal .

KU journalism professor condemned by administrators for tweet about NRA

he had clearance to get into a secure navy facility and that is not connected to the NRA . Its easy to blame the NRA for everything but drugs ,gangs and the lack of mental health care has to take a lot of the blame

I am not a member of the NRA but I think it is incredibly stupid to blame the gun violence of this country on them . They are no different than the Teamsters or any other group of individuals that have gotten together to lobby the lawmakers of this country . Millionaires do it , big business does it , why cant the 4 or 5 million people in the NRA do it . Washington DC has the strictest gun laws in the country , he had to go thru 2 armed guard stations with a shotgun ,which would not have been banned anyway . Just like world hunger and the homeless , people want to stop these horrible acts of violence against innocent people . Most gun violence is tied to gangs , drugs and mental illness and if some crazy wants to hurt people they will find a way to do it . Sometimes there is no easy answer and the conservatives and liberals fighting over every little thing means nothing ever gets done .

Letter: Fireworks menace

Just like in grade school when everyone is punished for the actions of a few . This law was passed because a few people were not acting responsibly and considering others feelings. People now have to sneak around to not get caught doing fireworks doing some here and there at odd hours which is more dangerous and disturbing to people . Lift the ban and concentrate on the abusers.

More than a decade after a citywide ban, fireworks still making noise in Lawrence

Lets go one better no alcohol in the city . Some people are not mature enough to drink responsibly and they cause a lot of accidents ,injuries and deaths. Smoking causes more fires than fireworks , no smoking . Where does it end ?

This law is a joke and I am pretty sure there was no vote. If the city commissioners sold fireworks they would still be legal. I am not saying they pass laws that benefit their own businesses , ok yeah that is what I am saying. Topeka can do fireworks but they cant do sparklers and we can do sparklers and not much else. There needs to be a compromise , maybe fountains ,small aerials and little firecrackers.

City refuses to change local law to comply with state law allowing concealed carry of knives

If you are prone to violence against others then too much alcohol makes it worse . A pool cue or bottle make a dangerous weapon also , my point is the bar owner needs to worry less about sales and more about safety and stop serving the person before they are blind stinking drunk.
