Early-morning apartment fire linked to recent arsons

Take a ride down the block after dark some night. The picnic tables that the landlords put out this summer to try to make it nice (which we enjoy and thank you) started to become home for 3-5 regular prostitutes. We could watch our own private version of cops. They would get picked up and dropped back off a few minutes later by several customers. Some of the cars where very nice, I even seen a beautiful black mercedes a few times picking up the same girl, one time I seen a red porsch. These girls would bring a bag of ice and beer or alcohol and just sit there all night long. Called the police and they would make them leave but within the hour they would be back. The other day I had a younger man approach me and my kids asking to sell a porno to us for $2. In front of the kids this POS asked me this. You really wouldn't believe it sometimes over here. I know the Police try very hard but .....

Early-morning apartment fire linked to recent arsons

I LIVE AT 25TH AND REDBUD, I WOULD BE WILLING TO PROVIDE THE FLYERS IF SOME VOLUNTEERS WOULD LIKE TO GET TOGETHER AND HELP PUT THEM UP! I AM SURE THAT IF THIS PERSON HAS ANY FRIENDS THAT ARE AWARE OF WHAT THIS PERSON IS DOING AND KNOWING THE NEIGHBORHOOD I LIVE IN, WELL I AM SURE SEVERAL PEOPLE COULD USE THE $2500.00. WOULD NOT MIND HELPING PREVENT THE POSSIBLE LOSS OF LIVES. SO SAVING PEOPLES LIVES OVERRIDES THE SNITCHING POLICY THAT SOME OF MY NEIGHBORS PROBABLY HAVE, AFTER ALL IT COULD BE YOUR LIFE YOUR SAVING OR SOMEONE YOU LOVE!!!!

First of all if you don't live in the neighborhood then you probably wouldn't understand why walking around it is probably not a good idea! I live on Redbud, I know! But if several of us got together then that would be a different story except that it would only be safe during the day and if we went knocking on peoples doors then we could interupt the drug deals, prostitutes or the drug addicts and I dont think they would take too kindly to this. The fire department came around a few days ago and handed out cards with contact info and $2500.00 reward information. I thought it was a very nice thing for them to do. And I am sure people are right about how old the buildings are and the fire walls, probably non existant. And for all that question, I am a hard working single mother that lives in an apartment that I can afford, not because I like the neighborhood! We just have to make good choices and make sure we are in by dark. SMH

City officials working to pinpoint cause of odd odor, taste in drinking water; safety not a concern, they say


gossipgirl785(anonymous) says…

I called the water dept. today and asked what the reason was and they said that they are working on fixing this. They said they do not know why it has bad taste and smell but it shouldn't be bad for us to drink, even though its hard to believe because it smells like yucky swamp water and it doesn't taste much better! I asked if a water filter would help but they said they do not know....... Seems like they would or should know.
This happened a few years ago as well becuase I had to call then and they said the same think. They said this time it should be fixed in a week hopefully.

Have you noticed an odd taste or smell in your drinking water?

Has your city of Lawrence tap water had a strange taste or odor the past few days?

Lawrence school board approves name change for Central Junior High School

What is sad to me is that the kids don't have all the nice equipment the other middle schools have, NOT EVEN A FULL TRACK?? I have been to athletic events where the coaches were sitting on the benches texting while thier team was losing by 50 pts! I live in this district now and my son should go to Central next year but I think I am going to try for a transfer. I am not thinking of only the sports but just when you drive by it looks old and worn down. How do all the other schools look so nice and have nice fields and equipment and this school has nothing. Do we as East siders not deserve as nice of things as the other schools, are we going to do the same as some other towns and just let Central be our ghetto school that no one gives a crap about? Just sad and you know who you are that should take a stand and put some pride back in these kids that have to go to this school, or do you even really care? The track to me says it all, kind of how they feel about the school! The kids only deserve that much since they come from the east side. Am I the only one that notices these things, no one has commented on this ?? South West and South sure do look nice.......
