Sound off: Is it legal to mow your grass clippings into the street?

I think the intention is to prevent people from raking all their leaves into the street in the fall, so they have to classify it as "yard waste". I have seen a giant pile of grass in the gutter before, but not like all the lazy b@$&*!!#'s who rake their leaves into the gutter thinking that somehow they'll magically disappear or that the city will sweep them up. Those are the poeple this ordinance was for, and who should be cited.

Brownback signs tax cuts, predicts boon; critics see budget-buster

The party of: "I got mine, SCREW everyone else!" makes good on that creedo.

It is a real problem. Additionally, you seem to expect that people react to a small, simple problem they can easily do something about by taking on an impossibly large, complex problem that all of humanity can’t seem to crack:
“Dang it, yet another giant PU truck blocking the sidewalk! I could give the police non-emergency line a quick call and report it……NO WAIT!!! I’ll cure cancer instead!!! And then I’ll solve poverty!!!”
People aren’t like that, we focus on things within our control, and if you block the sidewalk with your vehicle, I will happily inconvenience you with a visit by local law enforcement.

Backwards: maybe you are the reason the rest of the world hates Americans. Maybe you get your 8 ton SUV off the side walk, put down the donuts, and walk around your neighborhood on the sidewalk. I think you'll find that the people who actually USE the sidewalk are the opposite of "slothly, greedy, selfish, arrogant, lazy, terrible human beings".

It's the cities responsibility to repair or replace, but you have to read a ways to get to that:

It's the home owners responsibility to clear debris and snow.
Give the city a break, and consider how many miles of sidewalk there are to maintain (except for East and North Lawrence....they don't count).

It's the cities responsibility to replace it, which they'll do when they get around to it, not when you think it's the right time. The city will graciously allow you to replace it anytime you want at your expense and with proper permitting.
It is, however, a free country and you are welcome to buy land outside the city limits unencumbered with sidewalks and live there.

So, according to you, a person in a motorized wheel chair should either:
A. Stay home
B. Take their chances in the street.
C. Suck it up and get over their permenant disability.

I think you have intentionally overlooked the point made earlier, that the sidewalk in front of your house IS NOT YOURS!!! It belongs to all of us and you have no right to block it.

Anything you do that blocks the sidewalk (public right of way) and forces pedestrians into the street is a violation. If you force someone into the street and they are injured or killed by a car, YOU should be held liable.
Common conservatives, where is your personal responsibility??? You are personally responsible to keep the right of way clear, or you will be personally responsible for paying a fine. Better than being found personally repsonsible for grievious injury in a lawsuit, don't cha think?

Republicans at war with each other over redistricting

Well, they trust voters, but in the same way Regan trusted the Soviets: trust but verify. In this case, they need to verify that they will, in fact, control EVERYTHING in perpetuity. I guarantee that as soon as the crazies have a lock on everything, that they'll continue to simultaneously play the oppressed victim of various made up liberal plots.

Group urges Brownback to veto bill aimed at Sharia law

Thank God that our brave legislators are on the front lines of enacting laws to solve problems that don't exist.
