Lawrence attorney Scott Miller to replace retiring Judge Randy McGrath on municipal court bench

Considering how poorly qualified Miller is for the job, I'd like to know where his salary starts. Those are our tax dollars going to shore up Corliss's fiefdom. Wildgen couldn't have done it any better.

uh, no. They advertised on the Kansas Municipal Court Judge website. There are judges who want to move to a better location and there are plenty of attorneys with pro-tempore experience, especially these days when legislatures are cutting funding for the judiciary at the same time court backlogs are growing.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigns, hands power to military

Jimmy Carter managed to conclude the hostage crisis without a single death. That's pretty heroic in my book.

In any case, whether Obama is competent doesn't seem particularly relevant to the fact that the Egyptian people, not Obama, threw out their oppressive dictator. Now the question is whether they can rid themselves of Suleiman and institute the reforms the people deem essential to democratization.

Where's the investigation, Chad? Corliss appoints his buddy who has zero judicial experience and you don't ask how that happened? I cannot believe in the pool of applicants there was no one who has sat on the bench! This is outrageous.

Amyx, Cromwell and Johnson pick up seats on Lawrence City Commission

It is not in the interest of this community to ignore this low turnout which is 5 points lower than the last time, and that turnout was embarrassing. We need to better understand why people think voting in local elections is a waste of time. It seems unlikely that this commission will care enough to ask the question. Maybe the League of Women Voters would fund such a study.

Voter turnout sluggish throughout city

I want to know why people don't participate. There's no way to improve this rate unless we understand its causes.
