City looks at options for new rec center property

Agreed. Let KU use their own land for their own projects, and that way the students won't have to drive 4 miles to go to the proposed site.

I like the idea of using courts we already own. Schools are already in our neighborhoods, we're already familiar with them, and we already own them. We have parking and convenient access, too! Why can't we just pay the schools a small fee to rent the courts on weekends, breaks, and over the summer?

It seems to me that KU has plenty of land, but they just don't want to use it.

This whole deal seems dirty to me...

Well, the SLT could be paid for with a k-tag. Those that work in OP could either pay to use the connector, or drive through town for free. At least it would not be paid for with another mill levy increase.

Well said. I can see the taxpayers being on the hook for everything, and then refused access by KU. "Sorry, no admittance without a student ID".

I seem to recall the city fighting Wal-Mart, stating a concern was the increased traffic load in the 6th & Wakarusa area. Why was that a concern then, but not now? Sixteen hundred parking spaces means a lot of cars. Can someone please explain how all these people are going to get from KU to this facility?

I agree - the proposed center is nowhere near the local residents. I doubt it will generate enough money to even cover the operating costs, and provide no tax revenue. At least the construction company will make money...

Honestly, this little arrangement looks DIRTY to me. I agree... Lawrence has some extremely gullible taxpayers.

A long time ago, the people got tired of it and threw the tea into the harbor. Just sayin....

Plans filed for sand pit mining operation

Why are they concerned about the number of big trucks that will be on the road? They cannot weigh more than the fleet of empty buses that lumber around Lawrence with more service hours than this sand pit proposed.

If the airport is concerned about the number of waterfowl, then why did they put the airport so close to the river in the first place? Just go to maps.google.com and take a look.

Let's approve it and create some jobs here!

Rivalry reborn: K-State fans have returned to chicken-throwing roots

Why would someone throw a live chicken? Yes, they have wings, but does that still make it right?

Take off your socks and throw them... or maybe your hat.

What planet are y'all from, anyway? On what planet is it okay to take a live animal and throw it on to the basketball court?

And was that a picture of a dead chicken in the newspaper? Didn't look like a rubber chicken to me.

Now I remember why I don't buy tickets to these games...
