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.

Pet World fire kills many small animals; python, some others survive

I see it is confirmed that no birds survived. I am heartbroken. Fletcher always talked to me. I needed a Fletcher fix at least once a week. She was a great ambassador for Pet World.

Pet World fire kills many small animals; python, some others survive

This is heartbreaking. I worry for all the birds, including Fletcher, the big macaw and the budgies. Please tell me some of them, at least, escaped alive.
