Need for change not so crazy

I could not agree with you more! I have watched Lawrence grow since the 51 flood(my earliest recollection) I love my town.I don"t like to see it misdirected.The builders the money people need to philanthropic lawence needs on a bigger scale.Not all should or need be for our wonderful university!There they can make a difference and then, I with too much time on my hands could get behind something I am passionate about,as I would love nothing more than to serve my community

But I am still P>Oed about owing personal property taxes on a place that was not there.OK I am over all this ...good night

I haven" read all your posts,BUT having just been served a summons for personal property taxes from 2004,Here is what the hell I think.I was queen of the double wide and got it in my divorce(lucky me>not).I decided to move to florida after having a person knock on my door offering me 500. for it so he could(wink) move it to oklahoma, to be used for a battered womans shelter. To make a long story short,My taxes were paid thru june 1 2004. I was in florida by then basking in the sun.This was all explained to them, but now (after making a return to retirement in good ole larry town( 2006)I have to pay the back taxes on this they can ask for people who can afford their 10 million dollar library their high dollar new building on 6th street for retirees and the new comunity theatre( Which I cannot afford)Which the double wide was not even there!!!!My ex passed away in 2009.two weeks ago his name was in LJW for back taxes for(are you ready) for 2010... and the moral of the story is(if you are still reading) this retiree is thinking about the good life in florida where my meds are covered and my medi-gap policy is paid,because that is where the old rich people are.A lot of waste for the builders and their big taxed offers here in larryville where the town is run by the minority and Not sorry to say (they desrve the spoils of there hard work,but not on the backs of hard working tax paying people!

Thats why there is no money there,but look at all the republican whiners when you mess with their money! Like health care for all! Its not just their country its everyones right to have health care! I would sooner live in poverty than let one child or elderly person die needlessly! Me vote on anything republican WILL never happen!!!
