Letter: Wrong repair

John, you are wrong, it is not the city inspectors jog to be sure the concrete is poured according to specs. The city inspectors generally only inspect major parts of the building such as foundations. Again I say it is the Architect or Structural engineers responsibility and not the city. If the city inspectors had to do this it would require hiring a lot more inspectors and I don't think you or I want to pay for that!

Letter: Wrong repair

Fred, its unfortunate is getting so much attention because the overall project is a great asset to the community. I use it twice a week and its great to see so many people being active.

Letter: Wrong repair

As a retired Architect, let me make a few comments and maybe corrections to some of the comments.
Its not the City Inspectors responsibility to check these cracks but rather the Architect or his Structural Engineer.
Also its never to late to saw those joints in fact I have had some Structural Engineers even suggest not putting them in and just let the cracks occur on there own (concrete will crack not matter what you do).
I'm not trying to defend the Contractor, however these cracks are only a very small portion of a very large project its just unfortunate that they are getting a lot of attention. He is also obligated to fix this and any other problems for up to a year.

Famous Dave's closes Lawrence restaurant; all hail to the sweet potato

I would agree with that, the marketing manager just doesn't get it, high prices, bad food and service doesn't lend itself to a successful business.

Roadwork: Sixth and Iowa streets project progressing

It would be great to also report how construction effects bicycle traffic such as the 15th and K10 project. The paved bike and pedestrian path no longer goes thru that area which effectively cuts the bike path in half.

Breakfast burrito is not as advertised, instead of being scrambled eggs with whatever ingredients it appears to be chopped soft boiled egg, the torts were cold and coffee was also very weak and tasteless.

I think they just made a lot of wrong choices in there lives, like a better diet and exercise probably would have alleviated a lot if not all of there health problems.

Letter: Lies and deceit

I think its more than a few crumbs, but thats just my opinion. The opposition to the President is totally illogical, especially when Obmacare is modeled after what Mitt did in his state and yet according to the GOP it is the worst thing to ever happen to this country.

Letter: Lies and deceit

I don't oppose all of those things, I was just pointing out how the GOP talks of opposing all of those things on one hand but then does them on the other.
