Chamber of commerce wants chance to run convention and visitors bureau; longtime Lawrence security company purchased

Exaggerate much? Try 800 rooms. We are not going after the same market as Downtown KC. There is a market for smaller conferences as envisioned by those in Lawrence. Having a conference center downtown puts everything within walking distance, which is attractive to conference goers. Overland Park convention center does many of the types of events that they are talking about, sometimes 2 or more in one day, but there is none of the amenities that Downtown Lawrence offers nearby within walking distance.

Free State Brewing Company creates new beer series; AT&T expanding broadband service; City Hall creates new online public forum

It gives those of us who who work nights and can't go to commission meetings the opportunity to comment.
Who do you think is the god of the machine?
We don't have one to swoop in and fix all the problems, because the playwright couldn't work out in the denouement.

That's why they ask users to register. And anyone who thinks that they are going to pull someone off a garbage truck to monitor this is an idiot.
Not putting out a lot of money on this bet,, since I can get a new Fresnel for under $100.00. (I already have enough Fresnels, so I don't need any more.)

Their job is pass on your(anyones) comments to the city commission. They are not sending the comments to the commissioners as their own. How is that comment not signed by the original commenter?

Police PAC issues statement against Soden; Board of Realtors PAC gets nearly $15K from national organization; SLT concept plan could create major changes near Clinton Parkway

So Lane, if I disagree with you, I should not say anything?
If you are running for a public office and I feel that you are making public statements and I know that you don't have the information needed to make those statements and it affects me and those I work and live with, I should keep quiet.
Do we take away the rights of public employees to speak out because we gave them a job?

If you post/repost on social media, (which is publically searchable) we have to assume you agree with the post, unless you refute the statement as part of your post. Being female had nothing to do with their disagreement with Soden's 'public' stance.

Not Chicago money. Money from a National organization that happens to be headquartered in Chicago. A national organization that also receives money from the local Lawrence affiliate.
If members of the police department want to belong to a PAC, that is their right. No one said all of the officers are members of the PAC or whether they all support the PAC's stance.
My union has a PAC that I do not contribute to, because I don't agree with all of their stances.

Emergency personnel explain why trauma victims in Lawrence are not always taken to Lawrence hospital

I don't understand the LMH bashing. While I am not originally from Lawrence, KS, I have been here for over 20 years. We have a great hospital. My judgement is based on my family members being treated there, my associations with local physicians who practice there (both on a personal and social basis), and my family history with the medical field (none of which are from this area, lest you think I am being a homer): my dad was an internal medicine physician, my mother was a hospital administrator, my brother as a nurses aid and dietary aid, my wife as a emergency room receptionist and my time as a member of the engineering staff.

And of course, several visits to emergency rooms as a patient in 3 different states.
