35 indicted, including Lawrence residents, on drug charges; prosecutors allege KU basketball link

I'm sorry. I meant their alleged punishment. All I was doing was figuring up the math the news article mentioned and the couple that did get busted had successful, legit businesses. They would have earned money from that. Don't be a jerk.

So if they even "made" 16.9 million over 7 years and only these 35 guys were involved that would means they made less than $69,000 a year. Since we know the police and newspapers always over exaggerate who/what/how much is involved to make it sound better, their punishment seems a bit extreme for people making just a little over the national average. If these guys were making millions, why wouldn't they retire? Not that I condone their activities, but marijuana is used for medical purposes. EDUCATE YOURSELF!

Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force recommends Wakarusa Valley School closure, consolidation of at least four other schools

If Wakarusa gets close some children will be forced to ride the bus over an hour each way to school, which is ludicrous. That is not fair to the children. Closing schools do not really save money. Most teachers are just allocated to different school. The cost to upkeep the building still exist (you have to have the heat on in the winter to prevent pipe bursting), the grass is still cut in the summer. Yes, we may save a little bit but the outcomes does not justify the damage to be done. Overcrowding will also become an issue and the attention children receive. If your school closes or is consolidated, I hope you have a smart kid otherwise it will be difficult for them to receive the help they need. Have you ever tried to not only ensure the safety of 30 kids by yourself, but in addition try to teach them as well? Most of you have never been in that situation so let me tell you, you would not last nor would your message be successful. Just a thought...

Lawrence Humane Society seeking donations for dog's hip replacement surgery

I suppose I value dogs more than humans, but than I guess I can't argue stupidity. It's a human world. What chance do animals have if we don't take care of them?

Lions a triple threat: Lawrence High girls basketball team tallies 11 three-pointers in victory

Journal world you're killing me! Thanks of for fixing the caption online but the actual printed paper is wrong. How many points are you going to screw Potter out of? No offense to Parker, but those 7 three pointers are Potters. This is the 3rd time her points have been wrong in the paper...

Southwest ninth-grader opens the door for all freshmen to join high school sports teams

this particular year certain sports (girls bball, for instance) should not be moved up because the playing field is not equal. the only reason this issue is brought up because of this one 9th grade girl at southwest. not all the girls have equal eligibility--you can only play a certain amount of games per season and some girls have more than other, thus, unfair. maybe next year once everything is settled in advance this is a good idea; however, for now, let 9th graders stay where they are.
