Select KU, Haskell students get word they'll have preferred seating at Obama event

No, what he is doing is propagating the right wing rhetoric that Hispanic people are in America for 'free stuff'. The only quote Mr Burkhart uses from Mr Sarmiento is that he looks forward to the future. The repetition about 'free stuff' is just his feeble attempt to mimic fox news race baiting.

Lawrence home to many more than city's own homeless

I disagree, Fred: I think you enjoy being the ogre in the pack.

Didn't they just install new water mains along 19th street last year?

Lawrence commission takes blame for defeat of police headquarters tax

The problem for me was that Hallmark refuses to sell a smaller parcel of land and the city did nothing to pressure them to. We don't need to up the sales tax to buy more land than is needed.

U.S. Supreme Court now holds key to same-sex marriage in Kansas

Your argument implies that slavery should still be legal. And yes, we do have the right to redefine something! Exclamation point.

Kansas ebola plan calls for voluntary isolation, but quarantines are possible

It should be West Africa, not east Africa. I guess the LJW doesn't have editors anymore and maybe Peter should take a course in geography before writing anymore articles outside his scope.

The future of a new Lawrence police headquarters? Five questions

I live in East East Lawrence and voted 'no' at the East Lawrence Rec Center (69% NO). I'm sick of regressive taxes like a sales tax. Lawrence already has one of the highest sales taxes in the state. Over 8% sales tax should be illegal! And what is it paying for? An overpriced piece of land that is too big for the project. I'm all for helping the police out and getting a centralized station for them but I'm tired of being gouged. I live paycheck to paycheck which means in addition to the taxes taken out of my paycheck and the tax I have to pay in April, I'm being taxed at 8% every time I spend my little money. No MORE!
