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.

Editorial: Questionable leadership

What is Obama supposed to say about Reid. It is like the city commission today, do you think they where going to say they are glad Corliss is leaving? Even if they are, they are not saying it.

Reid was not a good leader, but as I have said over and over, Congress has done nothing since the 2010 midterms, faulting both parties for that. Compromise is weakness now. The Federal Reserve and the Supreme Court runs the county now.

2015 City Commission election: Candidate profiles, questionnaires, chats and more

I would be very surprised if Soden and Rasmussen did not get the four year terms.

Martin Miller retrial: Pathologist said there is 'no way' Miller's wife died by homicide

Read up on Cyril Wecht. Where is this money coming from, I bet he don't come cheap. Also read up on another trial somewhat like this Dr. Robert Ferrante was on trial for killing his wife. He said results where "inconclusive" , he was convicted anyway.

Police PAC issues statement against Soden; Board of Realtors PAC gets nearly $15K from national organization; SLT concept plan could create major changes near Clinton Parkway

I don't pay much attention to either Heckler or Holroyd, they are so to the left/right they are hard to take seriously. Kind of like the news columns by Leonard Pitts and Charles Krauhammer. I can't read either guy.

Managing editor: Why we added USA Today to our newspaper

Newspapers have survived by going heavy on local. Plus give credit to the LJW.com for "still" being free.

I think I was one of the original paperboys for the USA Today in Lawrence. Fall of 1984 maybe. It was weekday morning only, so had my after school and weekends free and I did not have to collect. I think they did away with paperboys for USA Today in under a year for drivers, so I had to change to Journal World, which was after school back then, except for Sunday.

I also remember loving the USA today because they had the best baseball box scores.

Company at center of alleged money laundering, undocumented worker scheme worked at Rock Chalk Park

But for all we know this was slave labor. That what scares me about illegal workers, just how much they are taken advantage off. Are they getting a far wage and rights, are they threatened with deportation for even leaving?

Company at center of alleged money laundering, undocumented worker scheme worked at Rock Chalk Park

I remember a contractor bidding on a project, and it was double what the winning bid was. He knew that other company was using illegals. But he also said it best, how do you sleep at night knowing any day the Feds, police, and immigration can knock on your door and your in big trouble.

“They were just retweets,” is just terrible excuse. Retweeting is just like forwarding e-mail jokes. . Sometimes they are offensive and you are held accountable.
