Do you think high schools should conduct random drug tests?

Prairie Park Elementary just called and said that they are locking down the school due to an issue with a staffer and their spouse. After the killings in Conn. I think that all teachers and staffers should be drug free. If they are involved with drugs and than go to work their issues will follow them to where our children are.

Leave the kids alone, and test all these drugged up Lawrence USD497 staffers! ASAP!

I have seen some deplorable sales people in my day but this place has set an all time new record for unethical sales practices. I believe they are dishonest right up front when they "run" your credit and than tell you that you will receive a great rate. Than they find something in your credit report to make you inelligible. I got sucked into this deal and they asked me to write them a check for $500 in good faith to assure them that I would buy the car if they could get me the car at the great rate they used to lure me in. In retrospect, I can't believe that I gave these crooks $500 to try to finance a car for me. Of course if something sounds to good to be true it probably is and after they approach you with a totally different offer they aren't to happy to give you your "good faith deposit" back. Is this even legal or just a way for them to "qualify' a buyer. Sleeze bags. Stay away! Also, when I went to test drive the vehicle the sales person insisted she drive. WTH.....OMGosh I could go on and on about this horrible experience.

Taking a look at restaurant violations

The city has no problem issuing permits to local restaurants but roadblocks franchises like olive garden. A franchisee has a franchisor who also oversees quality control and best practices which on turn adds higher standards to uphold. A sole proprietor who's only concern is an annual health inspection can easily lose sight of cleanliness and pest control all too easily when operating in a hard economy. Transparency and accountability are 2 things that will make these establishments clean up their filth.

The prices are much to high for deli sandwiches. My sandwich was all bread and to much relish. Where's the beef?!

Lawrence woman enters no-contest plea in child endangerment case

I sat next to Natasha Short the day after this article appeared in the paper at a bar (setem up jacks on the east side) where she was openly drinking alcohol. A patron put the article at her seat when she was out smoking and when she came back in she was mad and told the bar tender what had happened. I heard her tell the bartender that she couldn't leagally drink alcohol but she was still served and didn't even leave after she knew patrons were on to her probation violation. A slap in the face of the jucicial system.

where to start.....

- horrible customer service.
- Life insurance rates are ridiculously elevated.
- If you have a claim expect them to act like police rather than insurance agents.
- absolutely no follow-up with concerns

Their day doesn't start until after nine although they post office hours to be from 8-5. You will never be able to reach them in the morning. If you think you can stop by the office to take care of business in the morning you should make an appointment because nobody will surface until well after 9am.

Lawrence software company Saavi Accountability helps monitor online addictions

I think it is an excellent way of micromanaging your teens. Your phone can GPS them and let you know what they are up to online. Sounds like a win win to me.
