Caddy-corner can't be found in my dictionary. Did you mean catty-corner or kitty-corner?

Lawrence Republican files to challenge Democrat Ballard, says 'party has gone too far to the right'

Thanks for your remarks but I didn't say the party has been "pushed too far to the right." I said that I refused to be pushed out for being moderate. The attack on moderate Republicans is almost as intense as the attack on progressives. This has caused many to abandon the GOP and change party affiliation.

Power restored, road reopened following early morning hit-and-run

Ron, I am sure what you say about drivers using 9th instead of 6th St. is very true.
Also I understand why you park in the cul-de-sac to avoid backing onto 9th. Turning into or out of Chalk Hill Ct. can be frightful too.

Power restored, road reopened following early morning hit-and-run

Thanks Ron for pointing out a lot of details I neglected to mention. When I was working, I'd leave home at 6AM and not get home until 6:30 PM. However, I am now retired and can see on a daily basis how heavy traffic is between 7 & 8AM and between 3 & 5:30PM with cars speeding in both directions. More than half of the drivers are talking on their cells when they pass by too.

Power restored, road reopened following early morning hit-and-run

I live on Chalk Hill Ct and the speed limit on 9th.St. is a posted 20mph because of the limited sightline. However, most cars on 9th. speed over the hill at 30-40mph. There have been several wrecks on westbound 9th caused by vehicles travelling too fast. I've seen police cars going much faster than 20mph past my house. Yet the city ignores our neighborhood association about solving this problem.

Wicked Broadband project seeks $500,000 city grant; downtown hotel project seeks adjustment to incentives package; historical society seeks $20k for new exhibit

If Wicked had NY investors lined up, then let them provide the $500K,
Why should the city give any individual that amount of cash that won't benefit the city at large?
He has gigantes to even ask the city for it.
