40 years ago: Gasoline to reach unaffordable price of 70 cents per gallon, energy official warns

If only.....I think we would ALL welcome with open arms 70 cent a gallon for gas. I think the oil companies are ripping us off!

Do you think Stephen Colbert will make a good replacement for David Letterman as the ‘Late Show’ host?

Sure! I just hope he doesn't do a flip=flop like Jay Leno did when he took over the Tonite Show. From my perspective as an elder citizen, Jay ruined the Tonite Show.

Should grocery and convenience stores be allowed to sell liquor?

They do in MISSOURI! "Wake up to Missouri!"

Should you be able to make a phone call on a plane?

Absolutely NOT! Who wants to hear someone talking incessantly while trapped within the confined space of an aircraft while travelling across country or around the world? Nothing is that important that it can't wait til your flight lands at your FINAL destination.

Should Kansas residents be allowed to carry loaded handguns in a vehicle without a concealed carry permit?

Why does every one feel the need to carry a firearm with them at all times?? Have we all reverted back to the 19th century?? What are you so afraid of???????
Perhaps you are all "yellow bellies", so afraid of everyone and everything that you are willing to die for that precious gun! I'll bet those who relish the idea of carrying gun on their hip would not be able to use it in an actual emergency situation & wouldn't be able to properly aim & fire it if their own lives depended on it.

Should minors be allowed to use tanning beds?

Anyone under the age of consent should NOT be allowed to use these MACHINES without parental consent or without the parent being present while said underage person is using this machine.
My question is WHY does one feel it necessary to get/have a tan at all times? God gave you the skin color you have, so why does one feel it necessary to change what GOD gave you? Hasn't been proven that these "tanning beds" are not entirely safe?

Should the city inspect all rental units in the city for health and safety violations or is that potentially a violation of tenants' privacy?

You betcha! However the idea of drone is ridiculous. A drone can't see inside the buildings to see how well the landlord is maintaining them.
The city is worried about code violations...violations that could cost someone their life due to a poorly maintained building. As was suggested, the light fixtures all need to be up to specs as well as the sewer lines. If y9u lived on a lower floor, you wouldn't want the sewer line snapping in the ceiling in the middle of the night.
I live in a duplex here I Branson, and my landlord is good to fix something if it breaks, but only if and when it does break. One day the portico over the front "porch" is going to come tumbling down as the posts that hold it up are rotting away due poor drainage. I have suggested the best way for water run-off, but she turned a deaf ear due to the cost. She owns three duplex units in this area and each one rents for at least $600. No money for repairs. It will cost her a hell of a lot more later on, I guarantee it!

What is your fondest memory of Santa Claus?

When I was about four, my parents owned the house @ 821 Michigan in west Lawrence, and one day my mom came downstairs and placed a package under the tree "to Butch (my nickname at the time), from Santa". Kinda burst a big bubble in the Santa theory!

Construction work begins on South Lawrence Trafficway

As a lifetime resident of Lawrence/Douglas County, I am saddened by the location of the new highway. It is my belief that it should have gone south and followed the river or crossed it before landing on K-10. This will deter future growth in this corridor.
As for the "Wet-lands", this has been a dumping ground for years. If nothing more than a Mosquito hatchery due to the standing shallow water.
I am truly glad now that I moved out of Kansas & located not far from the areas where my late mother grew up...Bolivar & Monett, Mo. She always loved the Ozarks and longed to return. I can now, after eight years why. Give me the more serene Missouri Ozarks over the flatlands of Kansas!
