‘If it wasn’t for Missi,’ beloved neighborhood pool ‘wouldn’t be open’

Comment from Missi's Mom. Missi is an amazingly loving person I'm very proud of her for the TLC she gives here neighborhood. We lived on Davis Road , Kennedy neighborhood was a special place for us to raise our 4 children. became friends with many great folks, and are still friends today. The County Fair Pool is a large part of what makes it the neighborhood it is. here is the info if you can help keep this long time safe haven for kids open at least one more year.

Donations can be sent to: County Fair Swim Club, P.O. Box 976, Lawrence, KS 66044 or they can be made online at countyfairswimclub.org.

Neighbors of proposed new homeless shelter planning opposition

Being homeless for a short time is no disgrace it could happen to any one of use at any time due to our present state of economy. I’m not heartless I have compassion for people in need and I’m more than pleased to help. The folks in East Lawrence that are now trying to stop the LCS from being moved to there part of our community, are also not heartless don’t you hear what they are saying? It is not the homeless by no fault of there own that our Lawrence families have a problem with. It is the fact that we don’t want the chronic homeless population to grow. Let’s put our funds into programs that serve Douglas County individuals that want to restore themselves to being an addition to our town and with our help they can and will. There are several organizations that government funds and donations can go to, that will better serve to give hope to these truly deserving needy individuals. Family Promise keepers, Women’s Transitional Care, Pelathe Resource, First Step, to name a few. These facilities have requirements to meet to receive the help. Residing in Douglas County is one of them. Some important others are being sober& being drug free. The families in east Lawrence are not the first to protest the LCS being in there area. I believe there have been other locations proposed and much and much protesting from all of those locations also. The point being, seems to me plain as day. Lawrence doesn’t want a shelter that is a magnet to the professional homeless. Don’t build it they won’t come.
