Forbes magazine says Lawrence is one of the best places in the nation to retire; other surprising data about the city and its retirees

That's funny. Probably junk data like most of the statistics reported about Lawrence. I can think of many places to retire other than Kansas.

A whale of a mystery at a Lawrence construction site; $1 million expansion set for west Lawrence office building

I say it should be refurbished and placed at a key spot along the river trail as a landmark.

Despite another string of absences, school board member says she is committed to serving

I came here to post all of those things above. Frankly, I have lost confidence in the entire school board. Within the last six months each of the board members have given cause for a vote of no confidence.

Residents share their wildly unpopular and totally nonpolitical opinions

I appreciate this article. And in keeping with the spirit, I would like to say that I don't like the horse drawn Christmas parade either. It's silly and nothing more than a bunch of horses walking down the street. Make it more like the St. Patrick's day parade and it will be more fun.

Sale of Lawrence cable TV, internet operations finalized; new owner says changes in store

It's not going to change service or quality. Back when I had COX cable years ago they were just fine. Why doesn't COX just buy into this market?

Local businesses boycotted by Black Lives Matter group say action is misguided

I'll be gosh darned if I'm going let a group like BLM LFK tell me where to vote with my dollar. See? They have already alienated another potential supporter. This is not how you make friends. You find those sympathetic to your cause and build their trust. From there you can grow your supporters. This "you're either with me, or you're against me" approach will not serve them well.
