Child on bike hit by car at Sixth and Rockledge in critical but stable condition

David I believe this concern was discussed at the November Traffic Commission meeting. Don't remember if they we're sending it to the City Commission or not.

23rd and Iowa, 23rd and Ousdahl improvements up for discussion at City Hall

I believe if the City waits until the SLT is open to start the project then the City would bear the primary burden as Iowa/23rd St would no longer be considered K-10.

South Lawrence Trafficway legal fight ends with passing of deadline

Build the SLT ASAP and get the heavy semi-truck traffic off of 6th, 19th, 23rd, and 31st when they are trying to pass through town. What are numbers about how much the City has to pay for internal road repairs with the heavy trucks on the aforementioned streets and side streets that have been uses the past 20 years? How can not getting SLT Project not be good for Lawrence?

Town Talk: Development group files plans for 7-story building on Black Hills Energy site at 9th and N.H.; an update on Borders; roadwork set to begin Monday on 6th Street west of Iowa

Been empty a while...and if Compton wants to "give back" to the community any new downtown developments should be tied into fixing the Masonic Temple. Whether it's then "gifted" back to the Masons or as a place for the Community to meet that's fine with me. Vacant too long and wondering how it's not on KS Historic Register...never been inside but the outside used to make me look up and go wow.

Bringing a vision into view

The article had me thinking about moving there until I read the "income guidelines"...is this section 8 property?

Douglas County prosecutors to review cases involving Lawrence police involved in dismissing speeding tickets

Interesting. So if a candidate for public office (or incumbent) gets campaign money from a developer and then rezones the land the said developer now gets to build on is that bribery? Or is it not reciprocal? Just trying to figure out the double-standard there.

Don't get me wrong the issue at hand needs to be investigated and definitely a "black eye" for LPD.

Anti-tax Missouri billionaire contributing to effort to repeal Kansas state income tax

Late to the party but isn't the same guy who is credited for the "Laffer Curve", supply side and trickle down economics? How do I get a job with that kind of $$$ to spout theories that don't work?

Multiple vehicle accident on K-10 closes part of lane

Thoughts go out to whomever was in this accident. I drove from Lawrence to Olathe at 6:30pm on Tuesday and K-10 was horrible with rain and no striping on the road in DG County and not much better in JO County either.

Before any median barriers are installed how about extending the left shoulder East/West bound from Lawrence to Renner Rd and DG/JO counties actually ensuring K-10 has stripes on the pavement that can actually be seen...just a thought.

Town Talk: Jos. A. Bank Lawrence location to be outlet-style store; Masonic Temple building recommended for incentives; Kobach to talk immigration with Hispanic Chamber leader

Doesn't Doug Compton and First Management have enough money already without needing a tax break to make this happen?

Do you think the section of Missouri Street next to the stadium should be renamed to honor Don Fambrough?

I'm in the minority here but have any of you saying "NO" to renaming Missouri or naming a road after Fambrough ever met the man? I'm guessing not. So I'm for either renaming Missouri St. or one of the streets next to the Stadium for him. I for one would be proud to live on Fambrough Drive. Better yet let's change the sign for Missouri to be the black and gold with the MU logo...really people this is Lawrence and it's still the Border War!!!
