10th Circuit Court of Appeals upholds state's approved route of South Lawrence Trafficway through the Baker Wetlands

I mourn for another crushing blow to Native Americans - their reasons for wanting to protect this scared site are so often looked over (and not even mentioned in this article). One would think that after 300+ years of chipping away at Native American interests in the name of progress, development and civilization, modern government would say "Okay, okay. You can have this site that is sacred to you and full of history." No, it must be destroyed for the sake of commerce.

By the way, you misspelled the name of the Prairie Band Potawatomi tribe. How was this missed by the writer and the editor.... or is it simply not important?

Do you support the decision by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the state’s approved route of South Lawrence Trafficway through the Baker Wetlands?

Volunteers help agencies with to-do lists on Day of Caring

This was one day and a for a volunteer event specifically for the Day of Caring. There was not a mountain of work to be done, and so the people who volunteered were enough. Other people from Save the Wetlands are out there on many other days, and show they care about the Wetlands by actively working against its destruction. In addition, students and others from Haskell (to whom the Wetlands and adjacent Medicine Wheel are sacred ground) were preparing for a special event on campus that day.

Lawrence parents get advice on how to combat teen-aged drinking

College students are fully aware of the dangers of alcohol and many still drink themselves into oblivion. Perhaps the problem is that society condones drinking, glorifies it almost. You can't walk down Mass street for ten feet without running into a bar. It's considered hilarious for somebody to get so drunk they act like an imbecile, embarrass themselves, puke on the ground, pass out in the middle of the living room floor. This is why young people drink: they think it's cool, and they don't care if it's physically harmful. Combating teenage drinking needs to start somewhere other than telling them it's harmful to their bodies.

You are a minority in this town. If you don't like college kids, then don't live in a college town - they're all similar to this. Almost 1/4th of the population of Lawrence is college students and that is not going to change. Perhaps the reason the students didn't behave worse and riot is because we AREN'T idiots. Life is not so serious that you can't set aside one evening to shut off the streets and party! And I'm not even a sports fan! The police had no problem with it, the Chancellor had no problem with it, tens of thousands of people (not just students) had an evening of fun and joy. Looks like you're the only one missing out.
