Financially struggling homeless shelter not living up to management plan

It doesn't sound as if the new "executive director" is much of a manager, if at all. His clients need assistance, but they also need direction. And if they need another staff person, perhaps different budget cuts needed to be made in order to be able to afford another salary. Although volunteer efforts would help alleviate some of the issues, that wasn't the pro forma that everyone understood the shelter would use going forward.

Lawrence declares Oread Inn in default of redevelopment agreement; developer says city is in default

And didn't Mr. Corliss have a J.D. degree? Oh, that's right - he would have had to READ the agreement to analyze it......

Student Senate impeachment effort moving forward

Paul - or whomever you really are - you are one of the reasons that persons of reason and experience with human rights are disenchanted with Lawrence and the negativity that you seem to throw out as a reaction to all persons who are less liberal than you. I used to think that I was a moderate, but I can't even see you out there on the left wing...

County Commission approves firm to review codes department in wake of Kobach controversy; adopts Horizon 2020 changes

Because I happen to be planning to move to Larimer County, Colorado, in the next year and a half for retirement, and am remodeling and adding on to a home there, I can state with experience that the Larimer County building deparments and code enforcement are among the very best with which I have worked. And I was a construction manager for 44 years. So, surely Austin Peters' proximity to those departments gives them another advantage in helping to evaluate the Douglas County department and drag us kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

SLT interchange at Bob Billings Parkway will be delayed and cost $2.1 million more because of sinking roadway

I believe that part of the answer you are seeking is that it would not if it were a privately funded and designed project. The fact that it is a state agency and that the engineer apparently chose the foam as the preferred method in his/her design means that there is no recourse against either errors/omissions or professional liability insurance policies. That leaves us taxpayers picking up the tab - again....
