Officers pour resources into underage drinking battle

My question is who gets to keep all theses $2000 fines. I recently had the privilege of sitting through a Tuesday morning at municipal court. 75% of the cases were M.I.P. At $2K per, somebody made about $40000 that day.

Why not be honest and just send parents a tax bill each year for every kid 18-21.

That's what this is really about.

"Police asking public for help with information about shooting at apartment complex"

Um...If you can't hit it, you are a really poor shot and should quit the force?

City adds 3 hybrid diesel-electric buses to public transit fleet

Why is this city run by Mike Dever's nose? He didn't like the way portable toilets smelled in the KU Football embroglio last fall, now he doesn't like the way buses smell. Please somebody send a respirator or some nose plugs to City Hall for crying out loud.

Excessive heat warning for Douglas County expires

According to the Weather Channel, the record was 111 set back in 1954. When was this 114 temp recorded?

Kansas River spills over its banks, floods parks

It's a contract unit. The city rents toilets and insists on damage waivers so they don't have to pay for the toilet if anything bad happens to it.

Incentives, new technology prompt Lawrence homeowner to install solar panels

Thanks for the reply. Just for fun, I looked at my electric bill. Over the last 13 months, I used 1000 KW/hr per month--obviously, a lot more in the summer, a lot less in the winter. How much space would 30 panels take up?

Incentives, new technology prompt Lawrence homeowner to install solar panels

Wait a minute. The math doesn't work! 225W x 6 panels = enough power to run a hair dryer, or a microwave. This guy just spent $8K to run a hair dryer? Even with 20 panels maxed that's only 1/6 of the 200 Amp capacity of a normal, small house.

Here's hopping he doesn't want to add a plug in hybrid to the mix.
