Lawrence leaders get behind-the-scenes look at curbside recycling program

You know what a huge chunk of the paper going in is LJ World?? Your (for the most party unnecessary) Crave weekly paper. I get one in my mailbox and then drive up to find one on my driveway. A waste! Plus both houses on either side of me are are empty and your delivery person keeps throwing ones there. Last time I picked them up there were 4 weeks worth. Quit adding to the mess! I realize folks likely can't opt out--I would if I could---but at least don't double dip us!

Davis loses ground to Brownback in Kansas governor's race

How can one be comfortable with a man who has decimated education, arts, finances and our state's entire image? Sending us back to the 1930s and making us laughing stock in the world view.

5 things to know about the city's new curbside recycling service

I seem to remember seeing this somewhere but can't remember: can paper from paper shredders be placed in the new bins? I am a single male who can easily fill a 13 gallon trash can 2-3 times per week with everything that is now recyclable so having this large can and having it picked up so I don't have to spend the time, gas and energy to transport it myself is well worth the small approximate $34 per year fee.

Checkers owner confirms negotiations on downtown grocery; city set to approve ice rink; food truck debate delayed

I love Checkers! I just wish we could get a small grocery store on the eastern outskirts on K-10. As someone who commutes, I would love to be able to drive in and pick up what I need without having to drive further into town where traffic is congested.

I had a flat on a Thursday at 6:00p.m. I was transporting 2 small children of a friend's whom I was babysitting overnight so AAA driver (another great organization) gamely offered to take us all home and then recommended K's. He said he would leave the key and car there as they closed at 5:00 and I should call after 7:30 a.m. the next day when they opened. Well, I didn't have to call because by 7:20 the owner called and said he had been in the shop late when the car came in, he had already ordered my tire and it was on its way. They called back by 9:30a.m. and had it fixed. A simple shop, off the beaten road but well worth it. Thanks to them and the AAA guy who steered me there.

Trash day to change next week for many Lawrence residents

I try to always put them so the side midway down with the short metal bar is facing the street. Their latch can then easily grab it so they don't have to spin it which slows them.

City issues few tickets as part of snow-shoveling ordinance

You are so RIGHT! I walk from near the fairgrounds nearly all the way to campus and very little was cleared! I had to take to walking in the bike lanes most the way which is not safe. Plus, the ends of the sidewalks where the plows pushed the snow were giant piles so if you could walk on a clean sidewalk you had to mount those to get to the walks. I know the plows have to do their work...and in my opinion the streets were GREAT...but either homeowners need to shovel the ends or crews need to come back later to clear them. It was the same on Harper St which meant a lot of the kids headed to Kennedy Elem were having to go in the street to get around and back on the sidewalk.
