A Thousand Voices: Kansas' newest gun laws see opposition in latest survey

I agree that guns should not be allowed at sporting events and on university campuses. So how do you propose to keep them out? Making it against the law won't do it, because criminals, by the very definition, don't follow the law. Putting up those no guns signs won't do it, because the same people that break the law won't pay attention to the signs. How do you keep the guns out?

Editorial: Public process

Sarah McLinn sentenced to 'Hard 50' for brutal 2014 murder of Harold Sasko

So, would the sentence have been "fair" if the murderer was a male? What is a "fair" sentence for a murder that was committed in an "especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel manner?"
The article says nothing about him sexually exploiting her. Is every male/female relationship about sexual exploitation?

New proposal for 120-foot tall tower in eastern Lawrence; hotel owner confirms Holiday Inn to become DoubleTree by Hilton

Just wondering, why are people struggling with 4-way stops in east Lawrence? You pull up to the stop sign, stop, and then proceed when it's your turn. Are things done differently in east Lawrence?
