Mother Earth News Fair expected to draw 10,000 to downtown Lawrence

charging 25 bucks for an event at a city park is not very sustainable to me. how about eco friendly transportation or all the Jo Co pseudo tree huggers coming in their SUV"s. The fair sounds great but why not use the expo center in Topeka if 10000 people are expected?

a licensed contractor is only as good as the inspector checking his or her work. the city wants 50 dollars to apply for a master plumber license I will bet the labor cost to verify references is a lot less than 50 dollars.

City provides more details on rental registration program

home inspectors are not skilled trades men or women and usually miss real issues and cause headaches over minor problems and get paid way too much.
