'Belt-tightening' to be part of Lawrence budget discussions

More funding for the Lawrence Public Library??? Are you kidding me, it's brand new. Also arts and culture? That is not a necessity... People please prioritize....Mental heath, street repairs and social services should be at the top of the list. I agree with Bob, reduce employees and cut everything a little across the board.

Property owners need to start paying for sidewalk repair, city manager says

I have no intention of repairing or replacing any sidewalks. This is what we pay taxes for, we already have to maintain the easement area between the sidewalk and curb.........We mow it every season but yet not allowed to cut down any tree that has died or needs trimming located in that area. Maybe the city needs to quit spending instead of trying to increase income from the citizens.....Cut out the art work and roundabouts as far as I am concerned. its totally unnecessary. I agree with Alex, if they would have budgeted a few sidewalks every year they wouldn't be hit with so much expense at once. Maybe quit replacing curbs at the McDonald's located at 6th & Wakarusa. In the last 15 years they have replaced them 3 times. I know this because I lived west of town and saw it for myself. AND they are actually thinking about doing construction on Kasold or eliminating it. Give me a break. Kasold it just fine the way it is. Sorry I'm just venting..

Homeless shelter seeks $725,000 loan from city

I agree with Ramdom reading, maybe Mrs Kansas should donate her 10K for the roof instead of a playground. Can't believe they hired someone to direct the Shelter that can't manage her own money, if someone would have checked her out they would have known she has poor credit, lots of debt and NSF's all over town. Is this the kind of person we hired at the Shelter Loren??? I own multiple properties and know that roofs do NOT cost $75,000, where are they getting this bid anyhow? We don't need our tax $ going to the Shelter......

First Bell: Pre-weekend updates on school schedules, football playoffs and pre-bond meetings

Preparing grade cards should and can be done on Wednesdays when early dismissal occurs. Children are dismissed around 1-1:30. That leaves plenty of time if you work til 4 or 5 like most working people usually do. Don't get me wrong I know teachers are great and deal with children on a daily basis but when you compare their daily hours and time off at each holiday and during May, June, July and August it amounts to a fair amount of time off....Sometimes they have snow days also. I know of no other career that working moms can obtain that has such a great schedule and so much time off. Just saying....

First Bell: Pre-weekend updates on school schedules, football playoffs and pre-bond meetings

oops I just read that teachers were off today posting grades, isn't that what early dismissal is for on Wednesday's. I remember that the whole purpose of Wednesday's early dismissal was started to create more time for the teacher's to get caught up but it seems like they now have added another day to cause parents to find day care on all these Friday's off. Am I the only one that has a problem with this?

First Bell: Pre-weekend updates on school schedules, football playoffs and pre-bond meetings

Was wondering why elementary kids have been off on two Friday's in the past 3 wks since parent/teacher conferences are set for Nov.8-9? Is there some other reason they were off? thanks

Homeless shelter marks beginning of new home

Some of these homeless would not be homeless if they would get some type of JOB. I realize they need a hot meal and cots but what do they do all day long?? Is anyone working with them to fill out job apps? What about some clean clothes and a shower before applying for jobs. I think some of them like to be jobless and homeless and we need to put a time limit on how long these services are available to each person. Limit the number of days they can come and force them to get back into society. These people aren't homeless they're JOBLESS...........What about AA classes-require them to attend before they can check into the shelter..Lots of things need to happen and until these requirements are meet the homeless will continue to come and stay and will continue to be homeless and jobless.

Sound Off: I own a duplex, and one of my tenants parks his car on the grass. The other tenant is sto

I think Ron H is in la la land..A sheriff won't put someone in jail because of a junk car & appliance in their yard otherwise the jails would be full. A landlord can give written notice and then evict them. If a landlord doesn't know what to do they need to get out of the business, REALLY????
