The Lawrence argument that won't end: To build more retail or to not build more retail; commissioners prepare to hear SLT shopping center proposal on Tuesday

So you wouldn't drive all the way to Rock Chalk Park because it is to far???? What about all of us that live in the Northwest part of town and have to drive to South Iowa to do our shopping. Is that fair..... I try to shop in Lawrence whenever I can. Sounds like you would rather shop in KC.
Spread the shopping businesses all over town & not just in one or two large areas.

New Italian deli and market coming to west Lawrence; informal survey finds neighbors dislike proposed Kasold changes

I drive down that stretch of road many times a week. I don't like the idea of the change, but that's just my opinion.

Brownback urges schools to move more money into classrooms

Ok Brownback, back up your statement that only a few spend 2/3 of the funding in the classroom.
Who are they?
That really doesn't sound like a bad funding model, 1/3 on buildings, utilities, maintenance and administrator salaries.....the rest on teachers and students.

Golden year: ‘Maturity’ key to Michael Stigler’s hurdle crown

Congrats to Mr Stigler for the win. Boo to LJW for never mentioning Coach Redwine in the last two articles about this. There is never an article about a basketball player where coach Self isn't mentioned more than the player. This just shows the preference to basketball the reporters have.

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.
