KU town hall forum on race draws about 1,000 to Kansas Union

I will take a person at their word until I learn that they are untrustworthy. Why? Because _most_ people don't make stuff up like that. There are a few who do, but again, I let their behavior guide my opinion on if their reliability. I don't find the house party story extraordinary, I also can see why it never went to the police, because people like you don't/wont' believe them. If you don't, what makes a black person think LPD would?

KU town hall forum on race draws about 1,000 to Kansas Union

But the people who still make racist statements are teaching that to their children and grandchildren. Ignoring the problem does not make it go away. It only allows it to fester until some event happens when it explodes. We must have dialogue. We must believe people when they say they were threatened, or had racial slurs shouted at them. We much teach that racism, sexism and homophobia are wrong and harmful to society as a whole.

KU Senate members lampoon law allowing concealed carry on campus

But, there was an armed student on that campus! He chose not to go out and defend his school, what a loser! What is the point of having a good guy with a gun who won't use that gun when there is an active shooter! (For the record, I'm being sarcastic.)

However, this guy does show the false logic of the NRA and other amosexuals that a good guy with a gun will stop a bad guy with a gun.

KU employees, other Kansas state workers begin receiving furlough notices

On my lunch here. This headline is confusing. We were told we would be notified by noon if we were essential or non-essential, not whether we would be furloughed. I thought that wouldn't be determined until midnight tomorrow? Through Facebook I see that some people are getting emails stating that they are furloughed. I have no respect for any of the GOP legislature, the GOP governor and their Koch Brothers Masters.

A young Barred Owl sits in a tree north of Lawrence not more than 30 feet away from an owl box where

A neighbor across the street has a nest with 2 juvenile Barred Owls. We got some good pictures when one got out of the nest. There is nothing like waking up in the middle of the night hearing their insane clown laugh that they do. Firs time I thought our house was being broken in to.

Indian Hills residents concerned for safety after traffic diverted onto 27th Street

My main issue is that people blow through the school zone. I've stood there with my daughter waiting to cross and have had 1 car stop for us only to watch another totally ignore the speed limit, the cross walk and us. My husband has been in the middle of the cross walk with our daughter and hit a car with his hand because they were oblivious to their surroundings. I called LPD to complain quite a bit in August and September.

I've been very happy these last several days to walk down the street and see the patrol car sitting there. I think the number of stops indicates that there is a problem. 27th St. is a residential street, it doesn't matter that it intersects with a commercial zone at Iowa, same could be said for 9th St, but you go 1 block and it is definitely a residential area and drivers need to remember that.

Like the rest of Lawrence, I eagerly await the reopening of 31st St., not just to have reduced traffic on 27th, but also to avoid Iowa and get me home faster.

Editorial: All in the family?

The Universities have made meaningful cuts. Positions are not being filled creating a staffing issue with work not being able to get completed, a salary cap which allows good faculty to be lured away to other institutions, reducing the number of students admitted or cutting programs. The various colleges have made meaningful cuts. You get what you pay for. Go ahead, keep cutting education and remember that when you need a doctor to perform surgery, or an engineer to fix your broken bridge.

Brownback running for re-election

Really? The last few times I was in that nec of the woods they were strong supporters of Brownie. Do these unhappy people get out and vote? Or did they fall victim to the Koch advertisements?

Kansas Board of Regents to vote on proposed tuition, fee increases

Faculty AND Staff. Dont' forget the STAFF who process the applications, work on class schedules, keep department offices functioning, advise students, maintain the buildings and grounds and so on. It is also a MERIT pool which means that staff have to hae a satisfactory and excelent evaluation to receive it.
