Curbside recycling committee recommending city sign contract with Hamm Companies for local recycling center; question of whether to accept glass still undecided

not enough people take advantage of that in Lawrence for it to be enough of an impact. Per capita recycling will skyrocket with curbside pickup, especially with the inclusion of glass.

KU freshman Rio Adams bringing energy, on and off court

let's be honest. He has the best job in the country as long as he keeps winning!!! If something goes awry for a few seasons, it turns into one of the most vicious jobs in the country.

Note to court: Effect is a noun; affect is a verb ... except when they're not

Two points to you, Peter. Also, two more points for the last sentence. I was ready for it but it still made me giggle.

Sound Off: Moving contract

I'm going to laugh when we end up with a similar library to what we had with a ginormous parking garage attached and people start complaining that we didnt do enough!

'Food hub' seen as way to promote local agriculture

YES! This is fantastic. I sincerely hope that a national non-profit can step up to the table and function on the community level we need in this city.

In Obama's second inaugural address, he calls on U.S. to help poor, elderly

After reading the above posts, I've learned that I need to move to a country with more liberal policies and wayyyyyyyyy less religion.

Rock Chalk Park project likely to ask for property tax abatement from City Hall; questions about for-profit ownership emerge

Chad, you have done wonderful things with this town talk segment and all of your investigative reporting!
Would it be possible to get a Cliffs Notes version of what all is happening and how it is happening? I feel so very confused after I miss one or two stories about this project.

correct me if I'm wrong, but my current understanding in conjunction with your article here is that KU endowment pushed the project, told the city Fritzel was going to do the project, and Fritzel told the city he would give us a big project at a discount, own it for 30 years, and then lease it to us? And now it's all going to be for profit and he wont have to pay property taxes?

Regulations adopted to implement higher admission standards at KU in 2016

(...I think this just says if *YOU'RE average YOU'RE* not good enough to go to KU)... and you have a degree. I think this comment speaks for itself. Standards need to be raised. More students from across the country will become intrigued by a school that has tougher academic standards. If there are people not good enough to get into the school, all the better. Selectivity breeds academic competition and rigor, which is exactly what should be demanded from the University of Kansas.

Regulations adopted to implement higher admission standards at KU in 2016

The most common cross application schools with the university of Kansas all have higher standards, which subsequently bump up average ACT scores and make schools more competitive, which then makes them more desirable. Does that make sense in line with my previous comment or do I have to spell it out even further?
