City commissioners elect Lisa Larsen to fill vacant seat

So basically the vote was 2 1/2 to 1 1/2. I still HATE that a commissioner gets to serve a 2+ year term without a vote. We need to make a change to the law. No one should be appointed for over a year without a vote.

Gov. Brownback reshuffles hundreds of state workers

I don't think anything sinister is going on. It all about money. Trying to save thousands while we need to come up with millions.

Trump's 'unvarnished and unfiltered' act 'clearly is working,' NBC reporter tells Lawrence crowd

At some point the Republicans have to look themselves in the mirror and ask who the most likely to beat Clinton. I am thinking that's Sen. Rubio. Conservative but not extreme, modest upbringing, not a big voting record, young, brother did not invade Iraq. Republicans need 64 more editorial votes then Romney got in 2012, Florida has 29. Seems like a no brainier to me.

Chairs appear at East Lawrence bus stops; city responds with plan for new amenities

Think about it, a few people set up some chairs, marked them "bus bench" and the city spends thousands. I still remember the comment a few months back saying because riders only pay about 10% of the cost of the system, why even charge?

Just Food board alleges Farmer overpaid himself by more than $52,000; criminal charges being pursued

You are correct, especially with the United Way fundraising drive coming. You have to wonder if the mess will affect that.
