Lawrence school board approves purchase of 5,000 iPads; Adair to return after monthlong absence

They could have bought Windows 10 laptops for what they spent on the iPads and given the kids and teachers what they actually wanted. What a waste of money. I feel bad for the kids that this would've actually helped. I guess the rich kids will just use their own laptops.

Brownback signs bill preventing furloughs

So, now that they're "essential" they have to work or risk getting fired, but they don't get paid for it? Is the Governor gonna write the IOUs himself? Can we afford that many crayons?

I would have liked to have seen the results if you could give negative votes...

Lawrence man in custody after car chase; officers find pipe bomb in vehicle

Hopefully this is the same person who is setting all the fires in apartment complex laundries...and they stop him. My dad lived at Boardwalk when that crazy guy killed those people.

City mulls on-call T bus service

This is an interesting idea. I think it is well worth the money to see what the need is and how we can increase mobility around town after 8PM. It would've been nicer to have it around all summer, but it is smart investments like this that make me proud of Lawrence. It may sound like a lot of money, but if enough people use should pay for itself in increased GDP of Lawrence. I don't ride the bus a lot, but when I is far from "EmpT."

Driver attacked, robbed during delivery

This is Kent's brother.First of all thier lucky he didn't get thier wallets. Second, he didn't have time to draw a weapon if he did it would've been a different outcome, it almost was and he was bum-rushed. Third, he really just wants his wallet back. So, if anyone sees a wallet, any wallet return it to the rightful owner. Fourth, he's mad about the wallet but at least they didn't get his rug. Dude.

Missing cookies

I think some of you "make her a cookie" people are missing the point. Maybe you guys don't deserve a cookie. One cookie a week at lunch is not going to balloon any kid up. Recently at a healthy eating in school meeting they served cookies and donuts. That's unhealthy.

Embassies torched over caricatures

I feel a caricature of Mohamed is far less offensive than burning my flag in the streets of thier capital or calling for the death of Americans and the people of Denmark.
