Will you miss Milton's?

Not even a little bit. Service was horrible.

Lawrence residents say goodbye to popular downtown breakfast spot

I ate there twice with a good friend. Although the Eggs Benedict was fantastic, the service was horrible. They practically rushed us out the door. They were continually taking our plates and wouldn't leave us alone. I never went back after that second time, so no I will not miss it at all. And yes, they have a little place in the Kansas Union, and no I do not visit it at all. A business with service like that does not deserve my business.

The Razzie nominations for worst movie of 2010 were released Monday. Which of the nominated films do you think deserves the title?

The only one from that list I saw was Bounty Hunter and while I really like romantic comedies or romantic dramadies, that movie was not very good. Although I do really like Jennifer Aniston and adore Gerard Butler.

Where do you do most of your shopping?

It is really not a surprise about the women's clothing lacking in Lawrence. Most of the stores cater to smaller women. If you need larger sizes you pretty much have to choose the discount stores or go out of town or shop online for them. If you need something really dressy in a larger size you can't find it in Lawrence.

Living without a bank: Fees and confusion galore

I agree Cai. The author of this story did not do a very good job. Wal-Mart and Dillons will charge only $3 to cash a government/payroll check. $6 for higher amounts. Money orders at most grocery stores are around .50 to .75 a piece. I have a Green Dot card. I've had one for years. Yep, $4.95 to reload (about .30 less at Wal-Mart), and I reload once a month (usually). That's about $60 per year. Easy peasy. So, I spend about $60 per year to have my card. That is pittance compared to the fees from banks. I used to have a bank account, and I tell you I do not want one again. I DO NOT miss overdraft fees and getting pounced on by the banks for everything. With Green Dot cards, there is no chance of going over your limit. That's the beauty part.

Also, the author of this story is paranoid to think that people are drooling over her $100 bills. Give me a break. Plus, I would NOT go to one of those payday loan places. They really are crooks. The author was not smart for paying $28 to cash a paycheck. That's lunacy!

A good start

Bravo, Mr. District Attorney! Very well written and I totally agree!

Recycle local

To each their own. We all have the right to make our own choices. Whomever you choose to do business with is up to you. It doesn't make anyone more right or wrong than the other. Do what's right for you. If Deffenbaugh is what you want, then sign up. If you choose to stay with your current provider, then do it. Judging people because they make different decisions than you do is a waste of time.

Live and let live.

Do you think it is sexist to have awards for best actor and actress instead of one for best performance?

No they should not be split. But there should be an Oscar for Best Performance by an ensemble.

From teenager to mother

It is absolutely possible to not know you are pregnant until you are well into your pregnancy. I didn't know I was pregnant until 25 weeks with my second son. Ten years of trying to conceive and failing left me unwilling to believe I would ever have another child. It happens to a lot of women.

Your baby boy is beautiful. I'm sure this is not what you had planned at such a young age, but I am also sure that you love your little one with all your heart. As for the father, I hope you and he can work together to be the best parents you can be to your son. Nicolas needs you both.
You have a rough road ahead of you, but it will also have many wonderful turns. Being a parent is the toughest thing a person can ever do, in my opinion. But it is also the most rewarding. Seek out support groups and stay positive. Above all, cherish each moments as your baby grows. Yes, even the messes! Kids grow up so fast. I'm a mother of four myself and it seems like yesterday they were newborns.
I was afraid there would be some negative comments on your story from the judgmental people on these message boards, please ignore them. Keep your chin up and stay strong, sweetie. I wish you all the best of luck and much happiness. Take care.

Major Midwest trash company making push into Lawrence with weekly curbside recycling pickups

I am excited for this and will definitely be a customer! It would be nice to have it tacked onto my water bill, but I am more than willing to pay separately. They provide the can and pick it up on my trash day, I don't have to sort...awesome!
