Snow shuts down city for second time in a week

I can not express enough thanks to emergency workers who are on duty this morning. (fire, police, utility, snow removal)

After I called 911 for the downed tree and power line in my front yard, they were here within 5 minutes, the utility guy is up in a cherry picker right now in these horrible conditions.

I am inside my home, warm and cozy (with power!). These guys never get enough credit for how much they contribute to making sure the rest of us get to stay that way.

Thank you!!!

There was a power outage this morning in my neighborhood (near Central Middle School). Does anyone know if this effected voting at the poll site?

Lawrence school district, teachers move closer to work agreement for 2011-12

I'm pretty sure that *legally* there can not be any talks of classified pay at these certified negotiation meetings. (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong). It was brought up by the teachers negotiations team at the last meeting (as a...'Hey, I know we can't negotiate for them, but what are your thoughts on this..) and then was squashed very quickly because the board simply could not talk about it in that setting.

I think there was some talk by the board of using parts of the 3 million or so the government is making the board spend on classified salaries (which would be wonderful, because the classified staff deserves raises big time, IMO).
