'It's heartbreaking': Families adjust to homeless life together at shelter

There's another way to look at this.

I cam to, and stayed in, Lawrence because people here care enough to help. I want to be around people like that. It doesn't matter that a person if from another city, another state, or even another country. They are still people and they need help.

I know I will be dropping off some supplies and a gift card when I get paid this week.

Town Talk: Mexican restaurant coming to 1100 block of Mass.; water plant woes over the weekend; time to start over on Horizon 2020?

Town Talk: Parks and Rec office to move to South Park; talk of West Lawrence recreation center may heat up; Olive Garden proposal to get City Hall review

Out of curiosity, how much of that savings will be eaten up by the $25,000 (from the article) required to connect it to the city fiber network?

Teachers’ hours

I agree, it is extremely low, but I can corroborate wounded_soldiers statement.

My mother was a first year teacher in the mid-1980's and made ~$7000 at a private school in Missouri. Shortly after that, she switched to the public schools in a nearby small town with a lavish salary of $18,000. She made that only because the Missouri legislature mandated it and then made up the difference that the local district would not.

For my mom's students, that was a great investment for the state to make. I have never seen someone work as hard or as passionately as she did. It ultimately led to her becoming a professor and teaching new teachers how to be just as passionate about their students.
