Curious what the sentences is for all five guys? The three who entered the home with weapons for sure SHOULD get more time then the two who stayed outside.

Lawrence budget forum: Street maintenance, public transit top priority list

Lets not have 20 people decide how thousands of tax payer dollars are sent.

Reminds me of the $100M street car approval in KC that got approved with a 318-141 vote.

Health department studying how tobacco is marketed to Douglas County youth

When the cigarette companies got to advertise on TV again it was like Christmas for them. It's kind of like when they introduced the "safer" filter cigarettes in the 60's.

Gov. Brownback, Kansas legislators give 5 school districts more funding

"denied because those districts had adequate reserves to cover their unexpected costs."

County commissioner: Justice Matters event 'inappropriate'

A perfect example is the guy who got arrested a Wal-Mart. A quick search found he had a DUI in 2010. Who knows what he has done since he stole a hat and “displayed a knife in a threatening manner” and told police to shoot him on Sunday Guessing he is mentally ill, and has been in jail before.

Do we try (maybe again) to help him, knowing he's becoming more violent, or do we lock him up so he does not hurt anybody?
