Prosecutors will seek death penalty against Kyle Flack in quadruple Ottawa homicide

They had to go for the death penalty in this case. I know it's expensive. They can't let him plead out for life either.

Lawrence retail sales numbers up for fifth straight month; church buys former Lawrence Community Theater building

In 2008, Hays voters passed a half cent sales tax increase for an $8 million sports complex. When they collected the $11 million ($3M for maintenance cost) , the sales tax ended April 1st 2013. So why can't Lawrence have sales taxes that sunset?

City upholds decision on West Lawrence roundabout despite new objections from neighbors

I don't mind roundabouts, but I dislike the dual lane roundabouts. I can't get cars to stay in there lanes on a double turn lane.

Political analyst predicts Republicans will reclaim U.S. Senate

The Republicans probably should have taken the Senate in 2012, but they have a habit of picking bad candidates in the primaries.

And I still say Brownback is almost unbeatable. He has won total four statewide elections.

As far as the 2016 elections, the Republican Primaries will be a bloodbath so it's way to early to pick a frontrunner.

Lawrence would lose $1.7 million from school finance changes

I have always complained about the "cash cow" of virtual school. Why do we take kids out of district. All it did was lower the USD 497 graduation rates. The school board answer is always raise mill rates. We approve bonds and then they change what they do with it.

Kathleen Sebelius resigns from Obama Cabinet

Senate run? I hope so. Sure she is damaged goods, but she has a better shot then any other Democrat for Senate.

Jenkins, Wakefield differ on Paycheck Fairness Act

What the point for debate? Has anything of importance passed the House and Senate since the 2010 midterms?

Incentives package for Lawrence downtown apartments comes with accountability

I think is you take the tax payers money, you should be held to a higher standard. You can't expect the commission to do nothing after what happened with The Cave.
