Town Talk: Pawn shop set to expand; airport hangar project delayed; a battle between Lawrence and Salina may be looming

I guarantee you can buy brand new firearms for about 30% less than what they want at Jayhawk pawnshop. Their other prices seem to be right in line with that retail pricing strategy, way too high. No wonder they have merchandise piled up to the ceiling. Good luck with that expasion.

State smoking ban will prohibit some outdoor smoking at Lawrence businesses

Smokers have a right to smoke. Non-smokers have a right to not smoke. Put the two together & the non-smoker's rights are taken away. So how fair is that? Great rule. Let's reclaim outside seating. Once the smoking ban was put into place, the outside seating was for the smoking crowd only.

Matthew Jaeger sentenced to nearly 9 years in prison

"The passion & comments are disproportionate to the crime"? You're probably right. Castration would have been a much more fitting punishment than jail.

Afraidnot, I beg to differ. Lawyers should be held to some moral standard, not just "getting their client off". That's not justice, it's some travesty of justice ala OJ Simpson and is neither just nor right. Pedro brought in liars as "expert" witnesses and they lied because he paid them to lie. I don't commend defense lawyers who knowing lie & incent their clients to lie.

I fiind it disgusting. In this case, however, justice was served, in spite of Pedro.

What is really sad about this page is the venom produced by all commentators.

Anon, amazing that you would be surprised at the venom. You have clearly been successful in your mind in separating the perp from the act. He pummeled her privates with some type of knife. Think about it. He choked her, she was passed out and while she lay there he repeatedly hit her in the crotch. Really, just think about it. What kind of person could do a thing like this? An animal, sociopath as some say, certainly a weak individual and a violent bully.

I still can't believe no one in the apt. complex stepped forward when they were dragging her by the hair to the car.

Yes, the Lawrence community's reaction was one of persecution. What should it have been? And I think everyone wishes Ms Biggs a full recovery. Jaeger's conviction (albeit light IMHO) is a good step in the right direction. Whatever happens to him in jail, he deserves, 100%.

I still find it amazing that anyone could have voted for Obama. So, I guess it's not unusual to have LG40 on here spewing about poor Matt's victimization because of his wealthy family.

I don't understand why the charges were not oriented more toward attempted murder. Ms Biggs is lucky to be alive. At least no one bought his preposterous story. I don't think he's going to fare well in prison, which is fine, 'cause if he gets out, next time he'll be sure to not leave any evidence behind. He needs to go away for good.

Concerns voiced about new homeless shelter

Why are our tax dollars used for anyone but residents of Lawrence who need help? You want to be in the Lawrence homeless shelter, then you must 1st be a resident of Lawrence who lost their job/home.
