Commissioners concerned about e-mail from Wicked Broadband; WOW introduces faster Internet service; update on cable TV changes in Lawrence

Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think that people are less inclined to vote for her because of what her husband did. I at least am less inclined to vote for her because it appears with the timing of her decision to run that her sole reason for running is to affect the vote for her companies broadband plans.

The difference is that it's not the prune juice lobby asking for a direct loan or grant from the government. Special interests are fine and if a group of people concerned with high speed internet wanted to lobby in support of a city attempt to get high speed internet that would be fine. The problem is when he's not just lobbing for high speed internet in general he's asking the city to approve his companies high speed internet.

I really hope you're kidding with this. This is not a women's rights issue it's a clear cut conflict of interest. If she was the sole owner of the company and her husband wanted on the commission I'd have the same problem with it. Additionally lets remember she's a part owner of Wicked as well.

Speculation grows that Sam's Club wants to locate in new shopping center south of SLT

god I couldn't agree more. There isn't a Costco west of KC till you hit Denver CO. I'm so sick of driving 45 minutes to go to Costco on weekends (though it gives me an excuse to hit Oklahoma Joes.)

Kansas attorney general asks state Supreme Court to block same-sex marriage licenses after first wedding performed

First off, hurray for them. Huge supporter of Gay marriage here. However, I have to say this is strange situation in JoCo right now. These marriages are not technically legal right now. The Kansas law has not actually been deemed unconstitutional. It really is a technicality as it will likely be struck down pretty easily once a plaintiff challenges it but It will be interesting to see how the Fed's and the State treat these premature same sex marriages.

Report: Kansas economy picked up steam in late 2013

Dave I absolutely believe these numbers are the current best estimate and they will likely be revised up or down in the future as they normally are. What i want to know is when is Brownback going to give Obama credit for these numbers, he always blames bad economic news in the state on Obama and the Fed's so as far as I can tell this MUST be because of Obama too right?

So given Brownback's history with economic numbers shouldn't he give all of the credit here to President Obama since he likes to blame every bit of bad news on him.

Law enforcement officers in Lawrence don't use body-mounted cameras

Of everyone you listed, the police are the only entities capable of violating the constitutional rights of those they encounter. And are the only ones capable of building a criminal case against individuals where the specifics of how something is seized or how a search is conducted is crucial to the outcome of the trial.

Obama appeals for 'peace and calm' in Ferguson

I can't help but look at what is going on in Ferguson and not think about Cliven Bundy. Imagine if the protestors in Ferguson had all gone home and gotten into an armed standoff with the police, I'm guessing there would be a lot of dead people considering how the police have reacted to the peaceful protests going on there. I know there was some looting early on but that has since ceased.

Editorial: Retail questions

Richard, no one is suggesting that there is excess money in Lawrence that is not being spent. The idea behind this center is to attract those that would go to KC to do shopping. This center is supposed to be comprised of businesses that Lawrence lacks that draws people out of the city. So you're right it will be displacing money but hopefully it will move money from KC to Lawrence.
