School board member, Wicked Broadband co-owner files for seat on City Commission

I won't vote for her for this reason. She's being used as a puppet for her husband's project.

Owner of janitorial service seeks seat on Lawrence City Commission

There's nothing wrong with campaigning here. If I was running, I would use multiple mediums as well, including the article where my candidacy was announced. I wouldn't hijack other threads, but I think it's perfectly OK for him to campaign here.

I plan on voting for him if he can reel in the spending (and maybe even subdue the developers from trying to use our tax money for their pet projects).

Owner of janitorial service seeks seat on Lawrence City Commission

I'll vote for you, Gary! Finally someone who is looking to curb spending. If I ever run, I will go through the ordinances with a fine-tooth comb!

I want smaller government on all levels (from local to Federal), so any candidate willing to do that has my vote!

Letter: Gun threat

At the time it was written, Federal power was meant to be quite limited, not the monstrosity it has become today. Recall that we had just went to war with England to secure our Freedom. The second Amendment was designed to make sure that any ruling government remember that it is the government that serves its People. Not vice versa.

People and governments can become corrupt. I'd like to take this time to remind anyone reading about the Battle of Athens in 1946 (Google it for the full story) here on US soil.

The local government was corrupt, and guns were used to guarantee a proper vote counting (to prevent election-fraud, which was common in this locality as well). The guns weren't used to intimidate voters, but instead to make sure that the votes were counted properly.

Letter: Gun threat

The most common guns used in crime are handguns, not rifles. Furthermore, unless you're talking gang warfare, no common criminal is going to use a fully-automatic rifle; have you seen the cost of ammo these days? You want precise shots, not "spray and pray".

CLOSINGS for Jan. 7

It's not that cold out, really. Just bundle up. I had to walk to school in worse crap than this back home in Nebraska.

Lawrence commission again delays action on Wicked Broadband

If Wicked Broadband won't reveal it, then if I were a commissioner, I'd say "sorry, move along, try again next time"

City struggles to interpret Wicked Broadband's finances as it considers $300k loan guarantee

Agree 100%. If a commissioner isn't willing to be a personal guarantor, then they shouldn't expect the city to, either. Thank you. :)

City struggles to interpret Wicked Broadband's finances as it considers $300k loan guarantee

A city shouldn't be loaning private businesses money. That should be blatantly obvious. But since they are interesting in moving along with this asinine idea, they *absolutely need* to see Wicked's finances, and if Wicked doesn't want to show them the books, then that raises a lot of red flags..

To Wicked: If you're so sure you're going to succeed, then get a loan from a bank, or other investors. A government should not provide a private business money. I was 100% against the bailouts of the car industry by our Federal Government, too.
