If you could create a law, what would it be?

As barbaric as it may sound, I would allow every person the ability to kill one person for free in their lifetime. No one would know if you had used your freebie yet. Maybe if the threat was there, everyone would be a little nicer to each other. Just a thought :-J
let the comments fly :-J

Developer requesting city assistance to build apartment building, art studios in east Lawrence

Agree with many comments above. Is it just me or does it seem like this and most previous city commissioners appear to primarily be concerned with those that don't need help? I guess it pays to be a developer in Lawrence. What would be wrong with having an Olive Garden or a Lowes? Even if it takes some tax revenue away from some local businesses, it would still be generating money for the city, Last I heard, something that is in short supply.
The city and all government for that matter, it would appear feel if they want more money they increase taxes and charge more for utilities. Consumers don't have that luxury. We have to decide what we want more, and sometimes do without certain things. Some people do with much less than others.
Stop giving money to your fellow bussiness members and developers. Do things for the community. Hey! I know, How about some more round-a-bouts? We can always use more of those. Why not fix the roads that are in horrible shape? Just my 2 cents worth.

Should non-union city exployees expect to get the same raise and benefits as union employees?

I would have to claim not informed well enough to answer. Is it just police and fire unions in town? Are other city positions unionized as well? If it is just police and fire, I think they have a hazardous job and should have a better benefit and compensation package.

Lawrence Humane Society to pay workers $10,000 in back pay following federal labor investigation

here is another question for you.....what possible reason could an animal shelter have to make employees sign a non-disclosure agreement? it isn't like they have trade secrets. It would be about control. Limiting the flow of information. It is easier to contain misrepresentations of truth if no one is allowed to speak of them.
I'm ready to get bashed now. I know, where is my proof of such an allegation?
People will believe what they want. Some have already shown it doesn't matter how much information they are given.

Lawrence Humane Society to pay workers $10,000 in back pay following federal labor investigation

it was said some months back there would be more to come on the shelter front. It is nice to see some people still refuse to admit Grinstead could have anything to do with any of the issues. Not that any of her supporters will believe it, but issues go back much further than just 2 years.

Not newsworthy

I'm wondering if the writer's issue is the the placement of the story of merely it's content. In either event it was correctly placed. Irrespective of agreeing or disagreeing with rewriting of historical novels, it is newsworthy.

Midge Grinstead reinstated as executive director of the Lawrence Humane Society

As long as you have a contract with the city and county, LHS can not be a no kill. If you don't have contracts where do you suggest money to keep the shelter running will come from?
For the comments about kills rate around the area....you know this how? do you know how many animals are put down in Lawrence? Regardless of the reason listed.
Do you know how many in KC and Topeka? Then take a look at real intake numbers.
Are the intake and euthanasia ratios close? More animals in the front door means more animals out the back door. This is pretty much true no matter your return to owner numbers.
Not trying to get a battle going here again. But if you are going to spout off about this.....do you have knowledge from which to base your comments? Or are the things you say merely your personal opinions unfounded in truth? last part was a bit harsh.....just not enough so to delete it.
Think about that for a moment
