Lawrence school board votes to move up 6th graders, 9th graders in 2011

I have no objection to moving the 6th and 9th graders, but I do have concerns as to how it is being handled. The option for 9th graders to participate in all activities at the high school seems to me to be putting the horse before the cart. Why not allow that to happen once they are officially moved rather than this coming year when there are conflicting schedules and transportations issues? In the past, 9th graders were allowed to participate in sports not provided at the junior high level. Why is this changing ahead of the actual move?

Rental homes bring unwanted changes for some neighbors

As the daughter of the "distraught" individuals to whom you refer, I can assure you that it is the attitude which OutKast exemplifies that leads to the current problems in residential neighborhoods. Sure my parents don't have to pick up trash, but they choose to in an effort to try and maintain the neighborhood in which they have lived for so many years. The bottom line is the failure of landlords and students, alike, to follow the laws and ordinances in place.
