What do you think a fair fine for parking violations downtown would be?

Buy the Masonic Temple building along with D & D Tires and put up another multi-level parking garage. Get rid of parking on Massachusetts Steet between 11th & 6th. Open it up to make it a pedestrian "square." Maybe you have a trolley down the middle, maybe not. Keep the parking lots along New Hampshire and Vermont streets. Configure access to Mass from 8th as well as 10th for emergency vehicles. Revenue would still be generated from the parking garages and the remaining lots. Show some vision, people.

Kansas Legislature passes school finance bill; Brownback says he will sign it

The funniest thing about the picture is the part of the caption that reads " ... Sen. Marci Francisco, D - Lawrence, far right ... " LOL!

School leaders recommend against naming Lawrence High football field after famed coach

I'd call it Freeman Field at Woolard Stadium with the action called from Purdy Pressbox. Offer up competitions in the Wells Invitational and the Manning Invitational for those respective sports.

Five titles or more deserves some recognitIon.

Letter to the editor: Traffic woes

I don't think the traffic is too bad. I travel the entire length of Iowa Street many times weekly and it just doesn't seem like it takes all that long to get where I want to go, even with all the current construction along that route. The redesigned intersections at 23rd and 6th streets are great, the SLT is coming right along and I've never had any problem with the new configuration on 9th Street.

The roundabouts are here to stay. They work well and keep traffic moving. I don't see how you can complain about them while in the previous breath complaining about stoplights.

Which Kansas University basketball player are you most excited to see play next year?

I'm like a kid in a candy store trying to make a choice. I'll say Azubuike. A big fella in the middle is gonna be fun.

Opinion: Inequality part of freedom

"Meantime, think about this the next time you spray deodorant on your underarms: Somewhere a child is starving because of you."

So ... my roll-on is okay then?

Letter to the editor: Save the theater

You know, Mr. Holroyd, I hope I'm sitting down if you ever choose to address a topic without your usual smarmy snark. Theatre Lawrence is indeed a great facility. It does educational work with students quite frequently. It was never meant to be a defacto replacement for an entire high school drama program. The performing arts at FSHS are getting the stinky end of the stick with the usurping of the Black Box Theater.

Should sports teams be allowed to have Native American-inspired mascots?

I told my buddy I didn't think people should be categorized as mascots. He asked me if that applied to packers, vikings, texans, 49ers, cowboys, patriots and others. Gosh, I don't know. I guess so. Colts, dolphins, eagles, panthers, broncos and the like make it easier.

Chiefs, indians and braves. Mascot status. Seems offensive. And redskins ... c'mon.

West Point launches inquiry into cadets' fists-raised photo

Naw! We still have honor. It's all over the place. It just doesn't jump up and down shouting, "me, me, me!' all the time.

I bet if they don't mess with those lady cadets too much, they'll go on to serve with distinction.
