Brownback issues executive order opposing Syrian refugees relocating to Kansas

Not to worry. There will be states governors that will accept refugees. Certainly trust but verification will be needed. Yes, it will cost money to accommodate.....but it's the right thing to do. We're America. We're compassionate, we're honorable, and brave. Brave to me means....even though fearful of possible consequences, we do the right thing. KSN

Gas prices in Lawrence consistently higher than Topeka; experts say less competitive market to blame

I remember growing up out in Dodge (in the '80's) that occasionally gas stations would initiate a "gas war". THis is where a retailer would drop the price a nickel or more just to get more people in the door. Sometimes these gas stations were across the street from each other. Don't really see that much anymore tho.

Letter: Roundabouts

that roundabout works great! compare it to the 4-way stop at harvard just to the north from 4 pm to 6 pm...when you're waiting 13 cars deep in two lanes!. I understand that smaller vehicles may need to defer/slow down, etc., to larger vehicles in the roundabout, or vice-versa...but that happens very infrequently......AND that is part of appropriate road/street design, balancing cost & impacts versus needs, etc. I think they got it right.

Battle for control brewing in East Lawrence Neighborhood Association; look at renderings for proposed Ninth Street project

An experienced, wise road and highway designer once said to me; ..."when you design a horse by committee, you typically end up with a camel".

Larsen, Morgan advance to fill vacant Lawrence City Commission seat

no no. You're misunderstanding me. Just talking in facts (not sarcasm). To put lights on that stretch would have been a change order. It would have. THAT IS A FACT. I'm on your side. No more change orders. Even if it is a hospital route (not required by law to be lit). It would have been a change order.
