Lawrence residents could face new fees

Hey Longhorn,
You REALLY need to start doing a better job quoting people;
Coreless didn't say:
"I think what we’re trying to do is ensure that the basic city services are well attended to, but also try to do a little more than just pay the bills"
but Coreless said:
“I think what we’re trying to do is ensure that the basic city services are well attended to, but also try to do a little more than just pay the bills so I can get another 25% raise!"
Happy 4th!

Ordinance could silence panhandlers

Geminijade (Anonymous) says: I keep seeing get a job get a job well how about you people give them a job to do for their quarter? Since you all want them to work then give them a job. -----------------------------------When I asked a few guests of the shelter at 10th and Kentucky to shovel my snowy sidewalk for $5 each (10 minute job at the most) I'm told to go f**k myself. Their words, not mine. All I did was trying to help them.

Teen arrested in stabbing incident

smitty (Anonymous),Let me try to give you answer to your questionWhat does the shelter do to monitor for weapons? NOTHING AT ALLAnything??NO Or are the clients trusted to comply? YES ACORDING TO HENDERSON APARENTLYScary thought, uh?YESIs the outback patio covered area where this stabbing took place?DONT KNOW It appears so by the photo and video but isn't stated.LJW AT ITS FINESTIs there any monitoring of those who come and go from the outside area of the shelter premise?NO The patio is open to anyone coming and going whether resident/client or not.YES The police drive by this patio frequently but what responsiblity has the drunken druggie shelter taken to have a safe house?NONEThe video and photos clearly show Henderson and dog bone baker woman (that screwed up the LINK meal site with her codependency traits) were there in charge of the shelter operations at the time of the attempted murder.YIP BUT I DONT KNOW THE DOG BONE BAKER There is no way that Henderson with his management incompetence can expect any area of town to accept this shelter in their neighborhood or allow them to traffic through it.CORRECT Unfortunately this shelter is in my neighborhood now and the problems are getting more violent.YES, I OBSERVE THE SAME AND LIKE SOMEONE ELSE SAID, NOBODY AKSED OUR NEIGHBERHOOD IF IT WAS OK TO PUT THE DRUNK TANK WHERE IT IS NOW

Man stabbed at the Community Drop In Center in Lawrence

Most of the people there are there to better their lives? Whatever!Most people are there for a free meal, an opportunity to score drugs, an oportunity to be drunked up and still have a roof and an opportunity to intimidate whoever they can. The LCS is nothing but a city-sponsored drug dealing place and a place to do whatever they want to do and threaten staff, although the staff will never admit to this, Close the place down and we can give the money to the "T". Although they have no clue to run a business either, at least we would be helping some needy people out.Transients? Again, whatever! I wish they were true transients; they would move on again!

City gives early OK to homeless shelter plan

"But commissioners also sided with neighborhood groups that said any request for a future shelter location should go through a rigorous special use permit process."Q: Why wasn't this done for the current location? A: Because no one was really informed that a shelter that would allow drinking and not make their "guests" follow the rules.Q: Why is the special use permit now in place not being enforced? A: The situation has become a political nightmare so it's better to not talk about it and not enforce any permits.The LCS is nothing but a safe haven for "the homeless by choice" and all the crime that they invite. The police is still there on a daily (or should I say: hourly) basis. The City Commission is doing nothing to have the LCS live up to their end of the bargain. The City even refuses to declare the LCS a "nuisance house"; something it obviously is. The LCS problem is not being recognized. We are spending millions on our downtown business district, but more and more people do not want to come downtown anymore because of the constant harassment by our LCS "residents" and their posses. No wonder Lawrence folks go shopping in KC. The LCS does not have to look for another location. The LCS needs to close and the Salvation Army expended to house the homeless that are truly homeless and need help whether it be financially, mentally or any other way. Once that happens I will volunteer again to help those that help themselves.

Store wins final OK

Legal fees paid by the city could have paid for another year of the T.

Landlord-tenant mediator again accused of violating housing code

"Walsh said she was under the impression that Winn was trying to provide housing to people who needed a second chance, but she said its seems to have evolved into an unsupervised attempt that has gone wrong."

Just like another place downtown.

Landlord-tenant mediator again accused of violating housing code

"A spokesman with the Lawrence Police Department confirmed that between Jan. 1, 2006, and late August, the department has responded to calls for service at the location 36 times."

Wow, that's quite a number of times.
The LCS still beats him though by at least 500 calls.

State indicates willingness to help Lawrence with problems at bars

Confrontation (Anonymous) says:
"What are you going to do about the real threat to safety? The homeless population is far more dangerous than some drunks at a club."

Bingo, and I have said it many many many times before.

Times are definitely changing! Pretty soon you can't come downtown anymore for a drink, but only to get panhandled, yelled at, spit at and robbed.
