Cost estimates for Rock Chalk Park infrastructure come in about $3 million higher than expected; Self's foundation to make $2 million donation

I am happy for the facility but this is sad. For someone to completely blatantly take advantage of the city like this while the whole community watches is unthinkable.

North Lawrence residents, irked by a rash of thefts, find that many have gone unreported

Problem with the LPD adding more officers to the patrol is they will just send them to the college bars and continue to have one officer for N. Lawrence, one officer for East Lawrence, and one officer for West Lawrence. All the others will be in the Oread or Downtown chasing the dangerous girls in short skirts.

Day 3: From the Emerald Triangle to the Sunflower State

Only reason pot is a gateway drug is because the drug dealers you are buying it from are "up-selling" the other drugs. If you never had to work with these shady characters to buy your pot, you wouldn't be introduced to meth, coke, etc...

Don't think for a second the pot dealers aren't trying to get you hooked on meth, because meth has a higher markup for the drug dealer and is more addictive.

Police department's case for a new facility not likely to show on next year's budget, officials say

That building would actually work well. It has plenty of parking with the parking garage, can could probably be bought for less than 7 million. Add on the renovations, and you will will probably come in cheaper than building it new.

So you want them to select which laws to enforce based on your opinion, not law? And forget due process, because if a minor showed a bar owner a fake ID, the bar owner should receive the hefty fine and jail time...

Day after city's bid opening for recreation center, relief and a few questions

Where is the "$32 Million worth of improvements" number coming from? Seems to me if the bids are coming in around $10.5 to $12 million, our Rec Center building is worth $10.5 to $12 million.
