Letter to the editor: Don't get laptops

If preparing our children for an adult life largely based on being able to use computers is a poor investment then I don't know how we can justify anything related to schooling. Your statement that research shows computers are just a distraction sounds like fake news to me. When you google benefits of computers in the classroom you get 20 million results, when you google disadvantages you get 400,000. Here is just one site talking about the benefits

Whitewater group explains how $70 million Clinton Lake project would be funded; it involves help from the public and a new shopping center

Seems just about no one wants this including me. Just another corporate handout from the people to make some one percenter richer.

I just can't believe all of these bad reviews, I have never had a bad experience going there and found the employees to be very considerate and helpful. One time I thought I lost my glasses there and the guy working there went out of his way to check the office to see if someone had turned them in.
Also there are signs telling you to put your car in neutral as well as signs telling you not to put your foot on the brake and to also do other things depending on what kind of vehicle your have. The employees are yelling at you because from where they are standing it is very noisy and they want you to be able to hear them, use some common sense people!

Well said Dorothy and I served my country as well but know the military is a social service.

Editorial: Skating around the truth

I think the reason its not as profitable is that people found out its just not the same as skating on ice. I would rather see the city put that money into a real ice skating rink, but that will probably never happen because of the expense.

Festival of Cultures treats Lawrence to taste of city's diversity

I'm sorry but this event continuous to be an unorganized mess. There was no entertainment schedule posted before the event, are you just supposed to spend all day there to find out what is going on? We arrived shortly after noon and people were still setting up there booths, couldn't they do that before the event starts? They were filling out hand made poorly made signs for food items, couldn't that also been done the day before and actually printed out so you could read them. Whoever organizes this needs to attend the Ethnic Festival in Kansas City to see how its really done.

Lawrence City Commission to review plans for another two-lane roundabout

You sound like a politician we all know and hate, don't let the facts get in your way. It has been proven over and over that roundabouts are far safer than a common intersection. Also your car weighs far more than 1000 lbs another fact you ignore.

Lawrence City Commission to review plans for another two-lane roundabout

They did mill and repave most of it last year and its already falling apart. Also there is no curb and gutter anymore, they have been swallowed up by additional pavement or just by deteriorating from age. So common since would tell you just milling and repaving will not work.
