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.

Government costs

As stated above City/State salaries are well below that of the private sector, they make it up with benefits. How else would they get anyone to apply for the job. Sure our benefits are good (I'm not KPERs) but not having a raise in 3 years is hard to take. When we got raises it was 1-3% at best. Blame the elected officials for the good benefits and not the workers. And the comment about "nearly impossible for an employee to get fired by the govt no matter how crappy and lazy the employee is", get real, people get fired here just like everywhere else.
