Lawrence middle school teacher's selfless act inspires others

Who would expect a building colleague as a donor match? What a blessing and amazing gift. Congratulations to Mike and Scott, who are both terrific teachers and even better human beings. Best of health and success to you both; your Central family and many others send their best positive energy your way.

Trading barbs with Bill Maher

More interesting and more factual than anything Brownback and his toadies have to say.

State panel wants more information before ruling on Obama’s ballot eligibility

Anyone who pays attention knows stupidity and ignorance exist throughout state government in the Brownback regime, starting with him (and Kobach, who spends most of his time in AZ). This is another outrageous and not even thinly veiled attempt at voter suppression. Apparently there is nothing illegal they won't try.

Police respond to gunshots at former chief’s house

There are two common themes in these comments: first, that a law was broken and what that law says; second, that many object to the preferential way this was handled, in direct contrast to those who have recounted their experiences, and in contrast to the way most everyone else has been or would be treated after breaking this law.

Police respond to gunshots at former chief’s house

The law about discharging firearms inside city limits has been cited several times in the comments here, or can't you read?

Police respond to gunshots at former chief’s house

I have heard nothing but good things about the new chief, but his whitewash of this incident using 'medical emergency' as a tool to avoid making information public is a travesty. Drug reaction or no, the ex-chief fired not one but 5 rounds in a residential neighborhood in direct violation of city code. How is it that a police report is not required (even though many officers were there), or a breathalyzer or some sort of citation, as anyone else would receive? It's so...Lawrence that select individuals skate by or under laws everyone else follows or faces consequences. Shouldn't people in city government, the DA's office or the news media be asking more about this?

City of Lawrence's cost for Final Four downtown activities: $180,000

Revenue from KU athletics' success inevitably increases local business success. What's the problem?
