Judicial officials to reconsider closings after assurances from legislators who say they don't understand how courts couldn't trust them to provide funding

Will any of the "trust" situations mentioned here cause people to get out and vote this time??? I doubt it...

Sound Off: I was wondering if there is a city law on how much trash and junk you can have in your fr

This city allows chickens, pigs and hedgehogs as pets. Does a little trash make that much of a diff? I don't like the color the people down the street painted their house too. maybe they should have just talked to the property owners rather then sneak a complaint to city hall.

Westar aims to prevent outages with tree-trimming program

Several years ago the city planted some trees on the parkway directly under the power lines. When I pointed this out to the crew I was told it was to beautify the neighborhood. This year Wright hacked all of the trees into half trees so I called city hall and asked about removing the tree since it looked horrible. The city told me it will grow back in a year or two and will look fine.

Bond support builds, as consolidation plans for Lawrence elementary schools lag

There are two things that will have to occure for a bond issue to possibly pass. No consolidation - It will be very hard to ask people for more money while we are closing neighborhood school and the bond issue will have to be so specific that the board can't divert funds from identified repairs.
