Lawrence City Commission to consider $1.6M grant for pedestrian tunnel under Iowa Street

Wouldn't a bridge going over Iowa be safer? I would think it would also be less costly as well.

New Vermont Street parking lot opens

So the parking garage IS more important than the library right? Oh brother! Are those the correct priorities? Typical Lawrence! I guess the justification would be that there is a location for library (temporarily) right?

Chiggers: A Lawrence rite of passage

I never knew what a chigger was until I moved to Lawrence. For bites on me, I use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol. I think I suffocate the little creeps. It seems to work well IF this is done quickly. Sounds like a lot of people have different ideas for dealing with the itch these things cause. They are not high on my list of favorite bugs!

Really? I'm supposed to answer tracking questions before I can read a story online? LJW is not much fun anymore. Bye.

Simons' Saturday Column: Lawrence has lost growth, economic momentum

I agree with Dolph's editorial.
The way I see Lawrence is that it enjoyed "the good life" for many years...eating and eating and growing more obese with every bite. Now it's unhealthy and needs to diet some to get back within "normal" weight and it just can't stick to a diet. The end result will be it's own massive heart attack! And that heart attck may be fatal or at least need many long hard years of rehab.

Simons' Saturday Column: Menards again reveals city’s stunted retail thinking

I agree with Dolph on this also! This City is loosing it's appeal to many folks and businesses to boot. Wake up Lawrence! I stayed because it was a nice town...35 years ago. Not so much any more.

Finding meaningful employment a challenge for those with developmental disabilities

Just to add a little something here...Lawrence's job opportunities are so limited. I agree with lawrenceloser 100%. Great, uplifting story though.
