Police and fire put together list of more than $33 million in funding needs for 2016; Sprouts sets new opening date for Lawrence store; former KU basketball player says deal is near on wing restaurant

I think the dirty little secret is there are less fires then there used to be, that's why they have an EMT now. But I guess it's better to have too many then not enough.

Column: Blame Weis for ’15 struggles

If you only have two years to turn around a team before you get fired, you are telling the coach to go juco heavy.

Audit finds UMKC business school ran up deficit to boost enrollment

Rankings are everything. Chad brings up every ranking the city of Lawrence shows up in. How much do you think the KU Med center spends to make the Top 100 hospitals list?

Eudora School District to hold public forum on budget cuts tonight

"...combination of district budget cuts and student fee increases." Never hear those words from the Lawrence School Board.

Opinion: Clinton campaign off to fuzzy start

I like her, and will probably vote for her, but she is a boring candidate. But I don't blame her, the longer she can go without making waves and reveling too much information about issues the better.

School district may increase property taxes to offset expected state funding cuts

This is where I complain about when the school board wants money we blindly throw money at them. Then people will post "it's only 2 mills, that's only a few bucks a year". Then I say "but we have this conversation every year."

Farmer in line to become Lawrence's next mayor, but uncertainty remains ahead of Tuesday's vote

I guess I don't get the big deal, the mayor title means little. It's not like their vote counts any more. You make a couple of thousand more and have to do more ribbon cuttings. And Soden and Boley both know they are in line to be mayor in 2016 and 2017, right?

Jury finds Martin Miller guilty of first-degree murder in retrial

From my day and a half in the jury pool I could tell they did everything possible to come up with good fair jurors. I told them I could not forget he was convicted once and I was gone. Also thought if I was in big trouble I would want Mr. Ney as my lawyer.

Soden, Boley, Herbert win seats on Lawrence City Commission; two incumbents voted out

I guess never apologize for anything. Brownback has taught us that. Rasmussen blew it.
