New multimillion dollar medical building set for west Lawrence; future of Clinton Parkway interchange may spark a battle

When I lived in Lawrence, (till 2/2013), there was a Douglas County Bank on the northeast corner of Sixth and Folks. Is that no longer there?

Nurse's lawsuit alleges that Lawrence Memorial Hospital falsified records

I visited the ER at LMH a couple of times with chest pain. NEVER was I told to wait in the reception area. The magical words "chest pain" get you the express line to a treatment room. In fact, they did not even take any info past the complaint, but immediately got a wheel chair and moved me to an exam room. Yes, I was on Medicare at the time.

Planners looking at trading some downtown parking spots for additional bicycle parking; Alvamar redevelopment recommended for approval by planning commissioners

At least federal mandates for handicapped parking will prevent the city from canceling those spaces. Someone said that walking to alternative parking spaces is always an option. It is if the shopper can do that walking. Handicaps do not necessarily mean the person is in a wheelchair, and this prevents many people from shopping downtown. I lived in Lawrence in the first ten years of this century, and seldom went downtown just because of this. Walking from on a parking spot in Lawrence as q disabled person is not an option for me---or for many others.
