Lawrence school board members vote to close Wakarusa Valley School

Merrill, I'm not sure I understand your comments compared to who you are supporting. According to Masten's online chat comments, he supports closing schools. Can you clarify?

"Randy Masten:
The Task Force recommended a two-phased process: close one school, but no more than that, this year, and then, over the next 3-5 years, use a community-involved process to consolidate schools on the east side and the central area of Lawrence. In my view the entire process depends on the current board honoring the recommendations for the first phase. If, as recommended, this board closes no more than one school this year, as I believe is appropriate and best suited to maintain community support for the plan, I think we have a very good chance of gaining broad community support for the bond issues necessary for the second phase. I will then support the Task Force's second-phase recommendations, and I favor moving ahead with a community process to plan those consolidations. The Task Force left many critical elements of those consolidations for further discussion and decision, and I think the Task Force was exactly right that we will best ensure community support for the necessary bonds if we plan the process appropriately and inclusively."

Attitude likely to affect sales

I waited 30 minutes in the check out line at Kohls last Saturday and could barely find parking spots in KC yesterday. I guess I do not understand where our economy is "hurting". Can someone explain?
