Menards files plans to build store east of Home Depot near 31st and Iowa

Yeah, Home Depot could use come competition (though it is a little weird that Menards is locating right next to it). I will also agree that Dick's Sporting Goods should come to Lawrence as well. And how about bringing Barnes & Noble to town? Maybe even bring OLD NAVY back to Lawrence?

Recreation center and Rock Chalk Park Q&A

Weren't there once plans for the new rec center to have an ice arena? I'm pretty sure I once read about that...

Curbside recycling committee recommending city sign contract with Hamm Companies for local recycling center; question of whether to accept glass still undecided

It would be silly for Lawrence's recycling program (especially if it involved curbside recycling) to not accept glass. Just plain silly. Up here in conservative Saint Joseph, Missouri, even though we've never had curbside recycling, our recycling program accepts glass. So Lawrence can do the same.

Myers Liquor files plan for drive-through lane and new retail space at 23rd and Alabama location

Saint Joseph still has a pawn shop with a drive-through lane.

Town Talk: New housing development proposed for Sixth and George Williams Way; alterations shop opens at Sixth and Wakarusa; rumors that Casey's General Store interested in Lawrence

No Casey's General Store in Lawrence?! That's rather odd. I'd say go for it, and work toward bringing in a Casey's. They do have good pizza.

And while you're at it, Lawrence, how about working toward bringing Old Navy back to town? Olive Garden, perhaps? Maybe even Outback Steakhouse?

Town Talk: Another store adds to antique hub in N. Lawrence; group still pondering riverfront redevelopment; abandoned trailer park may become single-family neighborhood

North Lawrence sure needed more shops, especially since the Tanger Outlet Mall flopped. It's also nice that they opened at North Seventh and Locust (a more centralized location), and not just along the highway. Antique stores are certainly a perfect fit for Lawrence as well.

Town Talk: Papa Murphy's pizza, karate, wireless phone store and a credit union slated for new West Lawrence center

Another suggestion would be, if you're trying to bring another pizza place to Lawrence, how about working toward bringing Old Chicago back to town? Just a thought...

Town Talk: O'Reilly Auto Parts to open Sixth and Kasold store by mid-November; dry cleaning business expands west; Lone Star Lake E. Coli levels rise; Baldwin working to keep Maple Leaf route clear

My bad. See, I don't come to Lawrence very much, so I didn't know what the situation was in that neighborhood, specifically in terms of the availability of auto parts stores. Kind of weird you all wouldn't have any out there...

Town Talk: Papa Murphy's pizza, karate, wireless phone store and a credit union slated for new West Lawrence center

I just suggested Menards or Lowe's because Lawrence needs another home improvement store. It would certainly give Home Depot some competition.
