City supports $12 million in incentives for Ninth, New Hampshire project

I'm sure those street-level retail spaces will be snapped up as quickly as the ones at Hobbs Taylor Lofts. This building shouldn't happen until those spots and the Borders building are leased.

Town Talk: City delays vote on Ninth and New Hampshire hotel/apartment project again; city to tackle issue of longterm R.V. campers near South Park; Lawrence chosen as Midwest retirement 'haven'

Lawrence has a KOA campground for recreational vehicles. Clinton Lake also has campsites. Both have shower facilities and safe cooking fire areas for people who prefer not to live in traditional brick-and-mortar buildings. They collect appropriate fees for usage. If some people want to live in their vehicles, that's fine, but I don't think the public streets are an appropriate place to park them.
These guys are basically camping.

Sometimes a family's ability to provide for its kids is fine when the kids are born, but changes if a parent is suddenly laid off, or becomes ill, etc.

Agencies seeking donations to help Lawrence family of 11 whose house burned

Perhaps United Way could set up a page on their website to indicate what items are still needed each day, and provide updates on how the family is doing. A local bank could also set up an account for cash donations to the family.

Richard Gwin's favorite photos of 2011

Love the exaggerated morels! On the other hand, if they're really that size, bring some over and I'll cook you dinner!
