Union unveils the Jay, new event space in area formerly home to Jaybowl

So true. So now it's an empty room with "movable tables and chairs" (how high tech and innovative). What's sad is that it's selling point will be that it used to be a bowling alley.

Letter: Traffic expertise

Fred, 9th street connects Iowa street (a major traffic route) and downtown (a major destination) and there are no problems. Your logic is flawed. I'm sure traffic studies (as well as a casual observation) will show that traffic going down 31st street is not continuing on through Kasold to 6th street.

KU Today: Major transformation of university's Central District now underway

A bus transit station at 21st and Iowa (free of charge) would have been a nice addition.

Editorial: Kasold questions

Of course I have. I remember when 19th and Barker was a four-way stop; it was much worse than it is now. How can you even compare the slow movement of traffic there during rush hour now to the 15 to 20 minutes of stop and start that it took to get through there before the roundabout? That roundabout more than any other in town has relieved the nightmare of four-way stops.

Opinion: Black lives demand focus

Which is a different matter all together and in no way diminishes the "Black Lives Matter" movement.

Editorial: Kasold questions

I drive for a living also and I see many pedestrians and cyclists. The one thing I don't see anymore is the half mile long traffic jams at ridiculous four-way stops thanks to an increase in roundabouts.

George W Bush did an awful lot of borrowing from the Chinese.

Lawrence City Commission to act next week on naming mayor, filling vacant seat

I agree. The first step should be to offer the commission seat to Riordan.

City commissioner says some travel expenses by former Mayor Jeremy Farmer have drawn questions; city expected to release details today; Soden talks about pending appointment

It should be the person who had the most votes in the last election but didn't have enough to win a seat. I don't like the idea of the new commissioners just picking someone new who they all like. A special election would be nice.
