Pair of restaurants proposed for location near Sixth Street Wal-Mart; City Hall tensions rise over East Lawrence proposal

Perhaps an approach such as scheduling a visit to a neighborhood meeting informing the neighborhood stakeholders as to what exactly is on the minds of the "coordinators" and requesting team members from the neighborhood to participate in the "site plan design".
Maybe some common ground could be garnered at the outset? Maybe some thoughtful
artistic concepts would surface that had not crossed the minds of the "coordinators"?

East Lawrence neighbors are assets to the Lawrence community.

" they simply don't represent the popular opinions of the neighborhoods they serve."
You don't know that.

If the many that show up at city commission meetings do not represent the neighborhood how can 5 people on a week-end afternoon?

Apparently Governor Brownback fears transparency. Let it be known he will only appoint those who think like him for Sam Brownback has an agenda on his mind.

What is the art corridor looking like in the eyes of the "coordinators"?

Will it blend well with the neighborhood?

How much will it cost the taxpayers?

Why shouldn't those most directly impacted have substantial input?

Why in the world should commissioners become angry? That is tantamount to a temper tantrum. What is the value?

Wouldn't commissioner's expect a say if any of them felt their lifestyles threatened? Of course they would.

Every taxpayer in Lawrence,Kansas is a stakeholder in this project. Taxpayers are the source of tax dollars.

Should the federal government require healthier school lunches?

The government as such at any level would not need to if parents and the school districts would take it upon themselves to demand healthy meals at every meals.

Leave providing junk food to each family as that provides the family the pleasure of knowing exactly what their children are consuming.

All junk food is not created equal. Jazz apples are the latest in junk food over blueberries and bananas = plenty of sugar teamed up with potassium and antioxidants.

Westar moves ahead on wind amid debate

“We were motivated by customer preferences and cost,” she said.

Practical and fiscally responsible thinking ....... that which is lacking in a greater majority of the legislature and definitely lacking in the governor's office.

Editorial: Passing the buck?

Come now we have known what a deceptive person Sam Brownback is for many years. Yes a man without scruples.

The legislature knows what he wants because Sam told them. Members of the legislature also know voting against Sam Brownback will cost them their job.

The question becomes do legislators believe their integrity is more important than Sam Brownback? Thus far it looks like Deceptive Sam is more important.

90% of those who voted for Sam are going to regret that day when they to find themselves with less money and perhaps no job.

Nothing has changed.

Jenkins hears about immigration, budget at Lawrence town hall meeting

Word has it that Kevin Yoder the Republican slipped in the at the last minute the big door to more bank bailouts.

He and the big banks worked hand in hand to delete the protection clause that would prevent/protect taxpayers from the bank bailouts.

Jenkins hears about immigration, budget at Lawrence town hall meeting

If people are upset about immigrants taking jobs go directly to their employers. Now that republicans are taking control of the house and senate look for talk about immigrant reform to take a back seat.

Instead Jenkins and her pals will br screaming about social security insurance,medicare insurance and Obamacare. Also keep a close eye on public education as the white collar profiteers push for privatization as they call it. Privatization is another word for laundering tax dollars into corporate bank accounts. Quality and education be damned.

Look for republicans to go after Social Security Insurance and Medicare Insurance only to give it to Wall Street which will provide the wealthiest of Wall Street players a handsome windfall.

Lower and middleclass citizens will have their retirement insurance put at high risk on Wall Street.

On Wall Street other people's money and retirement plans go up in smoke everyday.
