A conversation with the community's new economic development leader

Two business recruiting goals I'd love this town to focus on:

1. A food co-packer. We have lots of talented food creators here capable of generating new concepts. We do not have a lot of local options for them to scale up small-kitchen recipes, package, and distribute at larger scales outside Lawrence.

2. A data center. We have huge IT brain drain to Kansas City. A steady pay check for techies so they could stay in town would be huge for local tech innovation.

Editorial: Noise is not progress

@Bob: I posted a serious article from an anti-racism scholar. In only two posts, you've managed to frame that as disrespecting MLK, sounding like David Duke, and akin to racial purity breeding. How is that not trolling?

Editorial: Noise is not progress

@Bob: Can one successfully call for decorum and respect while simultaneously using language like "absolute nonsense," "civilized culture," and "race hustle?" I've offered a scholarly, highly-cited, on-point article. You don't have to agree with it. But that doesn't make sharing it irrational or offensive to Dr. King's memory.

Editorial: Noise is not progress

@Brandon: The article is about how white culture reacts when confronted with racial issues. The TLDR summary is, "not well." To me, this editorial is an example that supports the article's theories.

WOW announces sale of Lawrence cable TV, internet operations; change may lead to gigabit service

^ Ain't that the truth. We've been lagging Cox towns like Topeka and Manhattan to the west and Consolidated/TWC/Google to the east. We're kind of the neglected ISP donut hole along I-70.

Lawrence City Commission passes HERE parking proposal, expresses disdain for sexually suggestive video

@Rochelle: Why would a media outlet not download a copy (easy to do) and host the relevant portion on its site (fair use)? Seems like common practice.

Not surprised. Lawrence was such an outlier within the WOW family. What should worry more is that large chunks of town have only one broadband provider because AT&T has not made infrastructure upgrades. If that one provider were to have something happen to it, all of town would suffer. At least Midco looks like they're moving forward on a DOCSIS 3.1 rollout:

@LJW: Why is the embedded video to this article missing?

Editorial: More notice

Would LJW complain about process so much if the policy were about a different subject?
