Accident report: Both drivers, including police officer, suspected of drinking before fatal motorcycle crash

I don't think it's irresponsible for LJW world to report this. I for one had been wondering about the circumstances of the accident. Jesse was a prominent person in the Lawrence community we want to know. I'm not even going to read any more comments on this.

I'm a motorcyclist and I ride the county roads all the time. I ride my motorcycle at night an sometimes after a beer. Its dangerous - - I was actually asked by a friend if I thought alcohol was involved. Hell I didn't know. I also don't know Jesse but I've meet him a few times and by all accounts he was a great guy and I enjoyed a visit to Slow Ride now and then.

Instead of having some opinion on this tragedy and the reporting of it go mow the lawn or something productive.

My condolences to Jesse's friends and family.

Kansas lawmakers pass resolution on school bathroom use, don't take action to keep schools open

I would just like to say -even though I know those in power in Topeka will never hear it - as a citizen of Kansas my thinking is the bathroom thing is way less important than school funding. A large number of other Kansas residents seem to agree.

There was this lawsuit, and the Supreme Court said...

Letter: ISIS action

Any time we compare anyone to Hitler we have a logical failure. Please stop.

In regard to your suggestion that the United States send hundreds of thousands of men and women to war where many will surely die, I have a question for you. Are you ready to leave your home, travel to Iraq or Syria and risk getting your ass shot off? Would you send your children on the same task? I eagerly await your response.

Opinion: Mountain lion is lurking

So it the mountain lion lurking or living? Seems to me it probably just would like to live and be left alone.

Mountain lions have lived in Douglas county for decades. No story there.

Lawrence commissioners voice support for tax break to expand Eldridge Hotel

There is no reason why a free market based development company needs a tax break. My business doesn't get a tax break. If "it's not easy to make work" then figure out your business model and don't ask the citizens of Lawrence to pay for it.

Victim 'remains hospitalized' following throat stabbing at Lawrence Community Shelter

All of them? What about Marty Miller who murderd his wife a few years ago? Did you ever notice that a LOT of people who live in Lawrence are not born here?

Victim 'remains hospitalized' following throat stabbing at Lawrence Community Shelter

Case workers urging their clients to go to Lawrence? Is there evidence of this? Why was I allowed to move into Lawrence from Chicago? Do you have any experience working with the homeless? How do you know so much about these referrals? You are also sterotyping everyone who lives in KCMO. I was taught as a young man that sterotyping was wrong. How about you get your head out of the sand, stop reading the comments section and go out and help someone instead of bitc**ing.

Victim 'remains hospitalized' following throat stabbing at Lawrence Community Shelter

Mr. Eyler,
You obviously have no idea ho the shelter is managed on a day to day basis. You have no idea of what it means to be homeless. You have no idea what the primary causes of homelessnes are and you have no compassion. Witnessing an attempted murder is traumatic.

What else do you suggest the City of Lawrence demand? Outlaw violence? Don't allow anyone with mental illness into the city? Impose a minimum income for allowing a person to live in Lawrence?

You sir are ignorant and unkind.
