Baldwin track coach given top award

Z was my track coach and I can say he pushed us to do our best and was very supportive. One of my favorite coaches. Glad to hear he is recognized for his hard work.

Yet another reason for going to another town to shop. Legends isn't that far.

City sides with residents who say 12th and Haskell Recycling Center violates zoning laws

Oh you got me windjammer, I am so spaced I can't even function. Hood is short for neighborhood, which everyone lives in one, not meant in a derogatory manner. As previously stated, I was implying some kind of salvage business in which a common salvage and industrial salvage yard both are. I personally feel like the neighbors are looking for something to complain about. The city shops are down there too. The neighbors don't complain about them and their loud equipment entering and exiting.

WJ and Merrill- So everyone in that hood has lived there since 1966? Would you not say to your self, "Self, I don't think I would like to live next door to a salvage yard. It might be noisy, and dirty, with large trucks and wreckers coming in and out?" Thanks WIndjammer, er, Captain Obvious, but I think the only thing on this board people agree with is that the site has always been some kind of salvage business. I was meaning that not everyone in that neighborhood has lived there since 1966. Unless you lived there before 1966 you would have noticed you were moving in by a salvage yard and you may not like that as a neighbor.

Whats even more scary is I have heard of 2 more businesses that have received letters about zoning issues, one of which the city persuaded to move into their current location. The city picks and chooses who to hassle. There has been a salvage business in that location for years. If you didn't want to live by a salvage yard you should have moved elsewhere. This opens the door for the city to "strong arm" anyone they want when they become a nuisance. Be wary, it could be your business or home on the chopping block next.

City Commission tells downtown car show organizers to rethink plans

Ah Lawrence...if something doesn't benefit the commissions interests then obviously no one else would be affected. This sounds like a great event that could bring lots of different people downtown than the usual parade goers and bicycle riders. I am sure there are other locations that would be glad to host it without the bellyaching and benefit from the revenue brought in. Not to mention helping the children of our area. Geez Lawrence, suck it up and try something new. Its not all about you city commission!

Maybe he is from Antarctica or Minnesota, this would seem like a walk in the park.

Closings and cancellations for Thursday, Feb. 3, 2011

I imagine attendance will be slim tomorrow. I have heard many friends in Lawrence say their roads aren't clear maybe they are working on it overnight?

Closings and cancellations for Thursday, Feb. 3, 2011

Its kind of a double standard that kids can't play outside if the wind chill is below 15 but are expected to walk to school in colder temps. Lawrence is notorious for not cancelling when everyone else does though so please send your kiddies with appropriate cold weather gear and stress how important it is to leave it on until in the building.
