Efficiency consultants recommend taking money from schools’ cash reserves, consolidating health plans

One of the reasons I've worked for the state for so long is b/c the health insurance was relatively good and relatively cheap. This would amount to a $2000 pay cut for me. Oh and inability to use my health care, because I don't have $3000 sitting around to pay a deductible up front.

Arts and crafts store makes expansion into west Lawrence; talk of banning plastic bags in Lawrence grows

I wish more people would voluntarily bring their own bags to the store. But people, banning plastic bags is not going to save the planet.

Alleged attempted abduction on Ohio Street; woman beaten, left to bleed on sidewalk of Massachusetts Street

I think the similarity here is men deciding to "help" women that they don't know. The woman in the above scenario didn't need help and was able to express that. The unconscious women clearly needed help, and maybe the frat boys had good intentions, but maybe they didn't. Regardless, taking an unconscious stranger to your home is pretty much never a good idea. If they wanted to help they should have thought of a better way to do it than essentially kidnapping them.

Nurse's lawsuit alleges that Lawrence Memorial Hospital falsified records

I think that's on the right track but not quite right. When a patient comes in with chest pain they are supposed to be hooked up to an EKG *immediately* b/c if you are having a heart attack every second between arrival, diagnosis, and treatment counts in two ways. One, the patient's chances for survival and recovery with minimal damage. Two, the hospital's ratings and (apparently) Medicare/Medicaid payments. It's not about patients sitting in the waiting room for hours, it's about patients waiting a couple *minutes*. A good article about all this: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/21/hea...

Design fosters togetherness at KU's newly opened Oswald and Self halls

Huh, I always thought dorms would be cheaper or at least not as expensive as apartments.... but my two bedroom apartment is significantly cheaper than that. (Assuming it doesn't include a dining plan in the cost listed.)
