City to consider banning couches on porches

Some friends of mine used to have a couch on their porch. I would stop by at my liesure and nap on it. I loved it. Then someone's ill-placed and forgotten cigarette butt caught the couch ablaze and burned down the entire house. Now that house has been replaced with the ugliest house in town (sorry if it's yours.) Porch couches breed ugly houses. Ban porch couches.

Prepare to relax, savor at the most intimate restaurant in Lawrence

Mel is an amazing Chef, and as hospitable as they come. We ate at Cafe Beatiful about 6 months ago and can't wait to go back! This is a must try for all foodies.

Junction City properties owned in part by Rock Chalk Park developer going to auction for unpaid taxes and fees

So will Fort Development be allowed to bid on the land at auction? Seems like the kind of deal where they find themselves in this huge mess, refuse to do anything about it, and then buy their own land back for pennies on the dollar (owed) and try again. Something of a settlement.

Kansas on cutting edge of knife rights

I have to laugh at all these "gang" comments. Gangs in the 1950's carried switchblades. You know, like A West Side Story, Grease, etc. I just picture a bunch of modern "gangsters" meeting at Club Magic, snapping their fingers in unison. Then someone gets shot and the whole switchblade argument seemed a little silly.

Chalmers returns to Lawrence to give back

I had the pleasure of having Mario as a guest at my house a few times during his time at KU. I'm sure he wouldn't remember me, but I remember him as a very grounded, friendly guy. Glad to see him doing so much to give back.

Only one developer submits proposal for resort at Clinton Lake State Park

Aren't we dead last in the nation for public use lands? We need more parks, not huge private resorts.

To the person who soon plans to "dangle [their] toes" in the Taneycomo, I doubt you dangle them too long! The water comes off the bottom of Tablerock and even in the dead heat of the hottest summer, it's numbingly cold! Beautiful area though, enjoy your trip.

What street in Lawrence do you think needs the most road work?

The 1000 block of NJ is pretty ridiculous, SE of NY elementary it's like driving on the rumble strip on the side of the highway!

KU student sues Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, alleging underage drinking led to head injury

The allegations he made seem to have no connections to underage drinking. Yes, he was drinking. Yes, he was under age. However, being assaulted was not the result of drinking. It was the result of choosing bad friends. Personal responsibility seems to have gone by the wayside at some point. He is responsible for his ignorant actions, just as the other young men need to be held accountable for their own. Why weren't criminal charges filed in a situation where someone was taken by ambulance to the hospital as a result of someone else's actions?

New homeless shelter adds space, privacy

I'm glad they have such a great facility. That way it will seem more like "home" when I have to move in, cuz the rent is too damn high!
