Lawrence community continues to offer feedback on Ninth Street Corridor project

That doesn't seem relevant. Are you suggesting that only property owners deserve a say? What if the property owner lives off Folks Road and the person at the meeting has rented and lived in the same East Lawrence home for the last 20 years? Still no say, says you?

Brownback signs bill allowing concealed carry without permit, claims economic successes

"But Brownback, surrounded by gun rights advocates and legislative leaders who supported the bill, defended the new law, saying it protects a constitutional right." Second amendment, great...but what about the first amendment? He never seems to be excited about that one!

Group asks what will make planned 9th Street Corridor project a success

I am very excited about this project! I am happy that someone such as Dave Loewenstein is looking out for the residences of East Lawrence, but let's keep our eye the prize here: this idea can set us apart as an arts town. As the spouse and friend of many, many artists and an arts supporter, I want to see this go through -- this is good for Lawrence! If it means that a few local businesses make more money, OMG, seriously, what is wrong with that?

eye on the prize, people; eye. on. the. prize!

City Commission candidate questionnaire: Matthew Herbert

what's wrong with bringing like companies into VenturePark? Let's build an industry category here. That has worked well with bringing multiple bio-tech companies into Lawrence.

Wicked Broadband pulls request for $300,000 loan guarantee

From my vantage point, that is a 25-year career spent in telecom, broadband and cloud computing, I will say that this community better figure out how to gigabit internet service to this community. It may not be critical today, but in 10 years... Whether Wicked, Google or RG Fiber, we can't just sit and watch as time goes by. I hope potential city commissioners are listening to this voter, because her vote will be affected by this issue -- and no I wasn't one of the 1100+ votes that Josh was referencing. I come to this on my own.

Gary William, you probably just lost my vote. I am an advocate for giving incentives to businesses. But, I hate how we are giving them now. There is no way to account for them. It seems to me that all Wicked was asking for was that the city be there, IN CASE they default. Gak, we should be doing that for worthy businesses like crazy! (I can't give an opinion on the worthiness of Wicked.) You do get if Wicked would have kept paying their loan payments, the city would have been out $00000.00!!!! Can't say the same for the Fritzel Folly that is Rock Chalk Park. By giving companies a pass on paying taxes, we continue to have no budget for helping companies and they have no accountability to meet their promises.

Letter: Moving forward?

Well said, very well said. Though I do like the Wakarusa roundabout.

Chick-fil-A files plans to build restaurant on South Iowa Street; city sets details for ice rink grand opening

Can you name a national "left-wing" business that pushes its religious agenda? I can't think of one?!? That seems the purview of only religious right.

Lawrence lands on list of quirkiest cities in America; developers to meet again on future of Turnhalle building; group forms to support police HQ issue
