Your first two paragraphs echo my thoughts exactly.

Editorial: Community leader

I just wanted to say--and I know Loring will object, but I think its the right thing to do---we need to rename the Shelter after Loring Henderson. I know a lot of people worked very hard, including Shirley Martin-Smith, Hilda Enoch, John Tacha, and all those on the committees, but the driving force, unrelenting, quietly determined, ever compassionate, the person with grace and mercy in his soul, who, in his 70's saw this project through, was Loring Henderson. He is an amazing man, and I hope that others will agree. I see names on buildings everywhere in Lawrence with dedication plaques to honor those who played a part in erecting the structures. Well, I think Loring deserves that and more. So, over his humble objections, I think its time we, as a community, say thank you, at least in part, by putting his name on a place that will give hope to those who have so little. The name will tell generations that this citizen of Lawrence made a difference; helped us all make a difference. The Loring Henderson Community Shelter sounds GREAT to me.

Lender seeks ownership of athletic club

Oh whatever. I'd rather express thanks to a person who has done so much for so many than judge from the outside. You must have missed the part about how this happened---LAC paid bills with us for over 10 years--on time, always. As for "coddling insiders" -- I have to say I do have respect for people who built this place--and if you don't like it...well....you know the rest.

Lender seeks ownership of athletic club

I am sorry to see this. Rick Sells has been a great friend to Lawrence people in so many ways...supporting charities, and his staff. Just ask the Kiefers--and Coopers Cause folks. I wonder at the voratious appetite of for more $$$ of people like George Paley. Did we really have to put someone out of business, George? Really? Rick has been part of our local scene and local economy for almost 30 years. That deserves some respect. I just bet you could have found a more eqiutable resolution. As for the above comment, "shady" and "cutting corners" I bet you are perfect and have been a business owner that has created hundreds of jobs for 30 years or so, right? In any case, there are many of us who are saddened by this and hope that Rick and Shannon will continue to be a part of the Lawrence business community as well as the community at large.

Brownback voices disapproval of Obama rule on contraceptives

If the fight is between civil rights for women and religious "rights," I vote women's rights every time! If the religious organization is receiving tax breaks, and we know they are, then they don't have the ability to say "no" to a basic health care product for women, just because they are women. Do they say "no" to vasectomies?
