City Commission to consider giving Lawrence's city manager $10,000 raise

When I worked for the city...the raise standards were only 2.5% or 5% depending on "who" you were. Why so much and for what? More bunk from the city commissioners!

What is important to you in a church service?

The church service is (imo) not what's really important. I "get " out of it, what I put into it. The service itself is a way to give God His due glory. It really is ALL about Him.

City of Lawrence to consider rate increases for water and sewer bills

More politics from city hall. Gotta think that if you are a "SOMEBODY" in Lawrence, your clothing is lined with dollar bills...

Lawrence schools now out of snow days

Not sure I "get" this. What is so hard about making up a day or two of school when "safety" issues are the reason for a closure?

Sound Off: Reporting tax fraud

Social Security is classified as an entitlement but I worked and paid into the system for many long years. I DO have a problem with social security being paid to persons that have NOT contributed a dime ... ie: a woman collecting ss ,who's husband worked but she DID NOT. Basically, No tickey...NO laundry.

Leader of local food bank files for seat on Lawrence City Commission

Mr. Farmer...I do not know you at all but from what I see seem like a down to earth, good ol' boy that just has high standards and a real grasp on just what "commuinity" means. City Hall needs someone like you to point their noses in the right directions. I suspect, should you get elected that you will face battles because you will probably go against the grain of their current non thinking ways. I wish you all the best. Bigger, better more is not always the way to go. Working with what you have and maximizing it's potential is smart. Good luck to you sir.

Landlords speak out against proposed expansion of city's rental licensing program

I have a rental property that shines pretty bright compared to the next three houses north of it that are owner occupied. South of that same property, after skipping two owner occupied homes...gee, guess what...there are three more run down buildings. Seriously...maple trees growing in the gutters, trash cans all over the front and back yards, piles of wood that have been there for 10 years or more, weeds 6" tall and the easement behind the houses are loaded with overgrown trees and shrubs and who knows what animals have taken up residence. And the city wants to "inspect" my rental????? Just more Lawrence politics.
It takes a lot more than a can of paint to take care of things.

Do you think it is important for children to learn cursive handwriting in schools? Why?

I always thought it was kind of fun to practice cursive. Then later on, it was even more fun to stylize my signature. I think our schools should concentrate on spelling also.
