The ins and outs of a proposed increase in parking fines for downtown Lawrence

But they don't know what time you parked. Just that your meter had expired. Just sayin'.

McCollum Hall being gutted in preparation for big boom

We were planning to set up along Iowa, west side near Oak Hill cemetery. Do you think they will let us?

For second year, KU slips in U.S. News Best Colleges rankings

So is anyone surprised that - without ANY real state support for higher education, and especially NO support for KU - that our university keeps slipping down the rankings? Color me completely un-surprised! And sad.

Questions of whether city and school district can work together on school inspections; three more names emerge for vacant seat on City Commission

I for one was really hoping current City Commissioners would reach out and recruit some possible candidates who would bring diversity to the commission. The fact that a LOT of Lawrence residents probably don't feel very "represented" by the current group is reason enough. But for the blue-est city in the state, diversity on the commission is top of my list.
I agree with other commenters that there were reasons other candidates weren't elected - or re-elected. Let's remember that.

News of a Mexican restaurant for 31st Street; city commissioners struggle with idea of ad hoc committee for police headquarters issue

I'm wIth Mr. Boley. The police chief can bring all his expertise, but his view is from WITHIN the department. As someone who routinely works with community organizations and government, a fresh perspective can be the key to seeing solutions that are difficult to recognize or otherwise create. The executives mentioned are good examples who can bring that big picture PLUS resident/ voter perspective to the table. This idea gets MY vote.

Jenkins defends senators for writing letter to Iran

Thank you for speaking up! I agree that treason is one of the nicer terms I would use to describe what our Senators from Kansas did. And the fact that Jenkins is defending them just shows her colors as well.

Editorial: Botched effort

The more information that comes out about this project - the worse it sounds for the city. Paid parking, all concessions profits, very little control - only after Fritzel and KU assert THEIR controls. A city vote 20 years ago does not give the commissioners a blank check for 2013.
