Letter: An angry rant

17-years of walmart-free purchasing!
its not that hard.
if all a consumer cares about is 'lowest price', then let the ding dongs buy chinese junk.
once their house is full, and they lost their job, they'll get it.
well, maybe not.

Costs, scope of proposed recreation center escalate

how about the the costs of the 'new' fire station that will be required to protect this center?
you know that is coming next, folks..

please city commissioners, bail out of this one. it stinks to high heaven. thank you Mike amyx for at least trying to understand that NO lawrence taxpayers want this... only developers and KU-endowment silver spooners... please go somewhere else.
and at least let compton put in a bid!

Details on proposed city/KU sports complex emerging; deal likely won't involve standard bidding process

let KU and Fritzel build and maintain this circus. City of Lawrence should have nothing to do with it. Thanks, Mike for thinking of us. No bid process? what is this, a monarchy? I realize that the endowment is private and can hire whomever they chose, but the city should therefore cease to have anything to do with it. Even if there were a proper bid process, I don't think a majority of taxpayers support this project. send it to the ballot.

City begins delivering trash carts

I am surprised that we don't have a new tax on these carts....they do have wheels.
just wait for a city inspection team to come out and start giving you fines. fine for 'breaking' the lid on their trashcart. you'll see, they'll charge you $150 for a new one every few years.
I just can't pay enough already, what with my $38 charge for sewer vs. my $8.50 actual water usage....
can you imagine McDonalds getting on this tip? yeah, you can buy a big mac for $4.00 but you also have to pay a $22.00 excre. fee if you use the toilets here. what a deal.
can I get a TIF?
or an amen?

No injuries reported during early morning blaze at apartment complex

Look for a TIF or maybe a tax incentive from the city..... a sure sign

Town Talk: Newest multi-story building plan proposes roundabout for Ninth and New Hampshire; city urging residents to get trash cart requests in before Monday; weekly land transfers

this question has not been answered:

currently I mow my grass and put in a trash can, which the city picks up monday mornings
they pickup my trash on thursday (different trash can, obviously)

if we are allowed only one trash can, what do we do with the lawn clippings? can we continue to put them in a separate trash can and have them picked up on mondays as usual?

or will the 'new' trucks designed to only pickup the new trashcans not facilitate this?

Man pistol-whipped in attempted robbery at The Reserve apartments; two suspects in custody

when o when will we start charging shawnee county for the money spent on our law enforcement chasing topeka's criminals? solution is easy...toll booth on hwy 40, and secondary toll booths at the turnpike entrances. any one from shawnee county must pay a $5 cover charge to enter douglas county. sounds good to me.
