Jaeger conviction upheld by appeals panel

I think nine years is not enough. I hope he gets the same treatment that he has given that poor woman very day for nine years. She will have to live with this for the rest of her life.

Town Talk: City still flirting with historic low on home construction; $4.4 million building permit issued for Poehler project; this and that about a new westside recreation center

What a joke, a 7 m. project would not revitalize the neighborhood. A 200 dollar outhouse would improve that neighborhood. Those people living in the Poehler buidling may be construction workers and if we dont have any construction jobs they wont have any income to pay the rent.

Look at the big picture, a 7 m. project would clean up the area, create jobs and income. Revitalize-look it up in the dictionary. To impart new live or vigor.
Any project would be a great improvement to the current economy. Seriously, you embrace of federal funded project (how ever you may look at it) and reject a new 7m. building. I embrace both and reject your notion of justification.

It will be just like section 8 housing, no matter how you look at it. Trying to be reasonable with people like you is like talking to a fence post. After a while you figure out that.... well you know what.

Town Talk: Dillons releases renderings of Mass. Street proposal; Farmland cleanup about to begin; bank sues Lawrence business group over Topeka deal; Hawks Pointe Apartments sold

Have you seen who is using the entire first level of that garage. The city is. Right now the taxpayers have build a garage that is mainly used by the city staff. I am sure that is Compton's fault as well. WOW

Number 1 grandma

There is no cause to call someone an Idiot. This is a civil discussion and I would hope all of us can have our own oppinion without name calling.

I dont know Compton, seen him a couple of times, but dont know him. I will say that most he gets bagged a lot for no reason. he has done a lot for this city. Not all is bad, but you people have decided that he is the bad guy no matter what. He is investing some of his own money and his partners are as well. I think that building will be a great addition to downtown. Thanks to all that believe in downtown and are willing to invest.

Sam Shaw. I dont know Doug Compton but I assume you are a shining example of good citizenship. Compton donates money to several great causes (boys and girls club, humane society ets.) How about you? This is not about Compton, its about developers and you my friend must be new to this! Yes, he develops and with that comes some Risk, Topeka is and was a victim of greater issues, Like the downturn in the economy. If he would have his way everyone in that area would have benefited from the new buildings and safer neighborhood.

Top jayhawk.

Never mind the fact that those investors used their own money and invested to clean up the worst part of Topeka. Anyone that takes a risk like that does not deserve a dumb comment like yours.
Envy and ingnorance-not a good combination!!
