City gives more thought to whether glass ought to be included in proposed curbside recycling program

Yep thats exactly where i take all my beer cans to. I tell my wife I am drinking for a good cause each time I go out to grab another beer out of the garage. I had never recycled before until I found out that they used them at the Humane Society.

Longtime employee Linda Lassen 1 of 2 laid off at Penn House on Friday

If what I am finding out about Kyle is true he is a mere 29 which I commend him for taking an active role in community at a such a young age but being from Hays, KS you should have some value for dedication and commitment to community. There are exceptions made sometimes, 40 years, 11 years longer than you have been living. I dont think you can put that in persepective, sit back and think about it. To think you may have went through Wilson, Felton or any other schools I did and came out this way is disappointing, most of the same teachers I had were still there.

Our dontations will still lay within the Lawrence community, wether it be another organization or us conducting our own adopt a family search via craigslist and taking applicatations that way, we will still use the $2000 plus we raise each xmas to benefits families in Lawrence but cannot support an organization that does this to employees, 6 years of adopt a families through Ballard center and to find out this is horrible.

40 years of service and an 8 hour notice is what she gets. TERRIBLE, I just told my wife who adopts 3 families each year and heads it up to get all the money raised to buy presents and donate stuff to the Ballard Center, she will be looking for another charity this upcoming year, she is very upset.

That reminds me of something like Kmart Distribution Center would do, not Penn house or Ballard Center. Disappointing, I understand that they probably had to do it to keep the places open and functioning to serve its purpose but only a days notice is insulting to someone that has been there that long

City to begin enforcing ordinance requiring sidewalks to be cleared of snow at 8 a.m. Thursday

Love it, considering the post office downtown has snow all over there sidewalk, looks like they made 0% effort to remove it.
