New Lawrence library's grand opening dazzles eager readers

I'm putting my comment here, as well, because I think it is very important. It received 13 "yeas" on the article first published this morning, but now the earlier story isn't even on the web site.

I wish the Lawrence Public Library could be named "The Nelson Mandela Lawrence Public Library." This would be the first library in the United States (I believe) to have this name.

To quote Nelson Mandela,

"Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great...

You can be that generation."

(Nelson Mandela, 2005)

Now is the time, with a new library opening after many years of using the old one, to make this statement come true for Douglas County citizens of all ages and traditions.

Baldwin City twins go 'hog wild' for Douglas County Fair

Thanks for this great article. Please put more photographs of the fair for each day on the website.

And congratulations to Lane and Tate for doing all this work. If you get a chance, include a little about the personality of each pig.

And--If possible, it would be nice to cover different participants for each day of the fair!

Saturday Column: Kansas voters must focus on state’s best interests

I wonder how many Journal-World employees, reporters and management are black?

Lawrence man electrocuted while working on Turnhalle building

David Duncan, and his firm, should be fired immediately if he did indeed fail to notify Westar about this power line and if it was involved in any way in the person's death.

I extend my sympathy to this man and his family.

Was he a contractor or did he work full time? Does he have benefits, or did David Duncan hire him as a freelance contractor?

Rock Chalk Park recreation center lands major basketball tourney; update on downtown ice rink

And don't forget - if I am correct, the water seepage problem also needs fixing FIRST.

This is very serious; it can't be done quickly - and it's got to be done right, if it can be done at all.

Practice makes perfect: Young pianist from Mexico represents Lawrence in international competition

Lawrence Journal-World, please put a tape on your website with Ulises Magaña de la Paz's playing. It needs to be shared with a much wider audience.

Very good luck to you, Ulises!

Many people don't realize the many gifts that immigrants to the United States bring with them and develop, if only given the opportunity.

More bicycles on road means more caution, manners required of everyone

Lawrence Police Department should keep track of ALL bicycle accidents.

There is also a lot that could be done to better protect bicyclists - but apparently the Lawrence Police Department doesn't know these things (they know very little about things that other parts of the United States and the world know about and practice)

Hughes is right about the "right hook" - it's very dangerous. Don't do it.

Berkeley, California has bicycle lessons which you must attend in order to receive a bicycle license. Why isn't this practiced in Lawrence? This is true for people of all ages who want to ride a bicycle on public streets. I think it would be a very good experience for anyone who wants to ride a bicycle in Kansas.

Editorial: Let’s be clear

I completely agree with this editorial. There are many questions which should be asked NOW before the City continues any further down this path.

And I am very skeptical about the innovative parking system. It seems to me like it may require continuous maintenance, and eventually be unusable in ten or fifteen years (or sooner). Is there a need for this system at all?
