"Speakeasy" open in downtown Lawrence; more on school boundaries near Rock Chalk Park

There is a Baan Thai in Leavenworth. Don't know if it is the same owners or not. The one in LV is not expensive.

Double Take: Weigh whether to tell friend about boyfriend's cheating

I agree, in fact, I think it is dangerous to not tell the victim, as there are so many STD's out there these days, her life could be in danger if she doesn't know. I would think she should see her doctor for a test after finding out her boyfriend has cheated, even if it was just once when he was drunk. I suspect if one is so drunk that they cheat on a girlfriend, they are probably too drunk to think about protection either.

Lawrence police chief urges residents to take fireworks ban more seriously

one of our neighbors was shooting them off last night between 10-11pm. I had to get up at 4:45 this morning for work, so I was not appreciative and didn't feel like getting up, dressed and going out and finding out the who and asking them to stop. I live in one of the older neighborhoods, and what scares me is when they go off to the right or left instead of straight up. We had windows open last night on our 2nd floor and worried about one coming through a screen or landing on the roof. We have found old bottle rockets in our eaves before. With the 4th being on a Friday, I don't have to work Sat so I won't mind as much, but still worry about the safety of my property (old houses burn pretty fast). Happy 4th everyone. Let's celebrate this awesome country, but lets do it safely!

Take a peek inside soon-to-open expanded Lawrence Public Library

someone was thinking outside the box, I think it is a great idea to have a recording studio! I can't wait until it opens up to get back in there.

Future site of Lawrence police headquarters down to final four

all of the sites are on the edge of the city. I personally think it should be located in a more central part of town. From this article, I don't know why they need 15 acres of land for the police department. It sounds extravagant to me. I would like to know a lot more about this.

Lawrence attorney Wakefield files to run against Jenkins for Congress

Margie, don't forget about the military and civilians that work at Ft. Riley, they were affected too. I hope you get state wide support. I have e-mailed Ms. Jenkins numerous times and the answers I get back are very seldom directed at my question, but trying to lead me off of the subject. Good luck!

Would you sign up and pay for a Google Fiber-type service in Lawrence?

I would love to see a competitor to both AT&T and WOW. I have had both services and both are not reliable. AT&T is better than WOW, but I still have a hard time streamling TV or movies, which is ridiculous in this day and age. I'm ready for something much better and faster!

Trash day to change for many Lawrence residents as city prepares for curbside recycling

we have more recycling than trash, so we would need a 95 gal one I'm guessing. We currently fill up about 6 or 7 containers in our garage every other week. At least this pickup will be once a week. I'm wondering why they don't do trash collection M-TH and not collect on Fri? Although, we have left for trips on Tuesdays before. We usually try to have a friend or neighbor move it back to the garage for us. But, collecting on Mon instead of Fri would be a safer bet that people will be home at night I'm guessing. I am really looking forward to the recycling.

Fred Phelps Sr., founder of Westboro Baptist Church, dead at 84

As a Christian, I am suppose to love my enemies. I said a prayer for him and have moved on. I hope no one pickets his funeral. I would rather there not have been any media attention at all. Let him just die quietly, not for his sake, but for the sake of others. I've attended too many soldiers funerals over the last 10 years, but I refuse to feel hatred for this group. In fact, I thank them because if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have the patriot guard, which is a wonderful organization who brings so much pride when you see them by the hundreds in a military funeral parade. They also have been one of the elements that have moved gay rights further along. God can use evil for good and I think he has with them. It is now between God and Mr. Phelps. I just wonder if the reason he was excuminicated is because he finally saw the light and the error of his ways. We will never know and I'm not going to spend anymore time thinking about him.
