Drugstore pain pills as effective as opioids in ER patients, study concludes

Then they'll also have to deal with the folks who take too much of the ibuprofen, and develop ugly, nasty, painful ulcers from too much of a "safer" medication.

Grocery store files plans to demolish building, start anew along south Iowa Street

The Aldi's here in Paducah, Kentucky was torn down and rebuilt from the ground up. And the new store is wonderful for the shoppers. I like shopping at Aldi's, and the new store makes it more enjoyable. They had a temporary location so the customers were not too inconvenienced. It worked out very well.

LMH reaches deal to build multimillion-dollar medical facility near Rock Chalk Park

They want to move the breast center out to the new facility on the west end of town? Will there be adequate convenient transportation for the women who need to get there? Perhaps it would be better to have two locations to better serve the women of Lawrence and the surrounding area, instead of sticking it out there so far from the population to the east.

Donor David Booth explains his $50M gift for KU football stadium

What in the world are they planning to do to Memorial Stadium that costs $300,000,000? I've been there, ands I wonder how that "renovation" compares to what the stadium cost in the first place---in real dollars, and in now dollars equivalent to what it cost then.

Ex-Lawrence mayor asks court for exception: probation instead of prison for embezzling from food bank

Gee, Jeremy, in a perfect world, the person CONVICTED would ALWAYS get the "punishment" he wants. Sorry this world isn't perfect. You did some real damage to a fine organization. Time to "pay the piper."

Causes of 2 recent apartment fires unknown, but not suspicious, investigators say

I used to live next door to this building. They were very close--separated only by a double driveway. I'm only surprised at the total devastation of the fire.

LMH shares plans for mental health crisis stabilization center with Douglas County Commission

This is NECESSARY in a community the size and structure of Lawrence. When LMH closed its psych unit several years ago, it diminished the resources in the community for people with serious mental health issues requiring inpatient services. This may only be a stopgap measure, but it is heartening to see that LMH is once again stepping up to serve a part of the community that is in great need of the service.

Call me a cynic, but how long will this ownership last before another regional group buys it out?
