Lawrence voters overwhelmingly approve keeping local option budget at 33 percent

I wonder what percent of the yes votes were from people that have property that the tax would affect?
I would vote to increase the tax on tobacco if I didn't smoke. Makes sense.......

WOW to double Internet speeds in Lawrence by January

WOW did say they were increasing speed but not saying that the price was staying the same. Earlier this year the KC news was recommending everyone reboot their cable modem. This was to reset it so internet speeds would double. Never heard anything about prices changing.
Google competition was a great help to KC.
Take notice WOW, you're going to be next.

City to explore feasibility of convention center

I believe the Police center would be a higher priority than the Convention center.
But I do think the Convention Center would be a great idea for the city, but would be used more for the University. So let's do a joint venture with the University putting up some serious bucks.

Royalty fee for sand from Kansas River would double under Francisco bill

"He also noted that it takes about 4 or 5 tons of river sand to make one ton of concrete or asphalt because the river sand is so fine."
Where does the extra weight go. Or are we talking volume instead.

Gun/tactical supply store opening in West Lawrence, city to consider buying street light system, request to close portion of N.H. street until March

I would like to see a new firearm retailer in Lawrence and then look for a pistol for my wife. Personal protection can't be a bad thing. I would rather spend my money in Lawrence than other places.
