City wins $1.2 million grant to restore Santa Fe depot

Dear Lord. I could build a beautiful hours for 1.2 million. It must be in terrible shape. I've been inside it and it's not historic, it's useless. It needs to be razed What the hell is wrong with their priorities to spend money on unnecessary and ridiculous crap like this? Even if it's a grant, it increases the deficit. Absolutely irresponsible.

Letter: Sacred wetlands

No, it was natural prairie before it was farmland, not wetlands.

Mail deliveries interrupted by snow; normal schedule should return Saturday

Haven't seen any plows West of Monterey Way except on the main arteries. I did see that they decided to have multiple crews cleaning up the snow in the middle of the streets downtown, during the day. That's just a poor management decision. Clear the streets first, then go back and do the clean up. The downtown streets are already passable. Let the night crews clean that up when traffic is absent. Also had the observer truck blocking through-traffic at intersections. Made absolutely no sense; block it where they're working is fine, but not the entire intersections. Some of these employees need training before they are given a vehicles and make the traffic situation worse. The streets that have been cleared thanks to the Sun and the pre-treatment.

Would you be more likely to recycle if the city had curbside recycling?

The city should just place recycling bins on the roundabouts and we can toss in our stuff as we circle.

What advice can you give incoming college students?

and use your signal when turning left or right. It doesn't matter who has to yield or who entered first, it's still a left or right turn.

Do you think parks or streets in Lawrence should be named for community members who have passed?

Let them name roundabouts, parks, and NEW streets after whomever they want. Don't rename existing streets!
