Local legislators get earful of funding requests; one lawmaker responds 'please tell us what taxes you would like us to raise'

Taxes would not have to be raised again if the millionaires and corporations would pay their fair share. These people shown at the table are part of that problem. They voted to let the 1% pay no income tax.

Social Security is taxed at 100% in Kansas. That is not right when the people who have more money than God allows pay nothing.

Plans call for Sixth Street restaurant building to be torn down to make way for high-tech car wash

Not good. We were hoping for another restaurant that does not already have one in town. Olive Garden, Red Lobster, or as stated above a really good BBQ place. A car wash is not a good fit.

Police: Lawrence man shoots through neighboring apartment while clearing gun

A loud bang at 4.a.m. and it was not reported until 8:10. It took four hours for someone to decide there was something wrong? Why would anyone be clearing a gun at 4 a.m.? Was he going hunting?

Road repair plans for 2018 include 23rd Street, Ninth Street and others

What is planned for Peterson Rd? It is in the best shape of probably any street in town.

I hope the Kasold project is not the reduction of four lanes to two lanes. That will be a disaster for traffic. Kasold carries a lot of traffic and is the only street that goes across town from just south of I-70 to the SLT.

Douglas County Food Policy Council wants local leaders to oppose grocery sales tax

Nebraska has no sales tax on food and when I lived the property tax was quite reasonable.
