Lawrence wants property to house multimillion dollar police headquarters

I think the old Sears building would be a great place to house the Police Dept. and City offices!

Kansas to reimpose work requirement for food assistance

This is why it is very important that you go to college!! So that you can get a job making a decent wage!!

It's pretty sad when I see people come to our fine country without a dime in their pocket and 5 to 10 years later they own their own home and drive brand new cars because they worked two or three jobs and saved their money!!

Yet we have people who have lived here their whole lives that don't have a pot to piss in!

Nothing is free! You want it, you work for it!

Editorial: Too poor?

Health care is not free! Who do you think is going to pay for it?? If it is an emergency they can go to the ER!

City to begin searching for sites for potential multimillion dollar police headquarters

If the City has the money to build the New Police Dept without raising taxes I am all for it. If the City does not have the funds to build the new Police Dept, then they need to wait until they do or wait until something else is paid for. Simple math!!

No more raising taxes for stuff we don't need! Buses and Recreation Center!!

Letter: Wasted effort

Obamacare will be repealed, so just forget about it. The Government has no business being in the so called health care business! If you want health insurance go buy it!! Even if you have to get a second, third, or fourth job! No more hand outs!

Lawrence joins in nationwide vigils for Trayvon Martin


I posted this above but let me repost incase you missed it! This was not a race issue! Zimmerman (A) had authority to be there, Trayvon suspect (B) did not, and subject (A) confronted Subject (B) subject (B) re-acted aggressively. Fight ensued. Subject (B) on top of subject (A). Suspect (B) was pounding victim's (A) head into the concrete sidewalk , victim (A) which had authority to be there used deadly force to save his life. End of story.

As a side note, Zimmerman did not use the stand your ground defense. This was a simple legal right to defend yourself against deadly force issue which would have stood up in any court in the United States.
