Makes you wonder why Google hasn't been knocking down city doors to get into Lawrence ?

Kansas deputy, wife killed in motorcycle accident

The law enforcement profession is in the business of serving and protecting the public, and for this reason any death involving a LEO is of public concern.

Think about it. If the LEO was pulling the trailer that resulted in a fatality, would his profession be mentioned.? Of course it would.

At any rate , my thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families and friends affected by this this tragic accident.

Lawrence puts police headquarters sales-tax question on November ballot

At least we get to vote on a major city expense. Too bad we don't get to vote on all the tax rebates/incentives that the developers are getting.

Letter: Local poverty

People with a disability really need the assistance, but more times than not they don't get the help they need because the "free loaders" are taking advantage of the system..... Sad but true.

By the way, I have a son with a disability. He struggles every day to make ends meet, but still volunteers. It's not about money, it's about the person.

Town Talk: Are taxes too high here?

I can no longer afford to live in the Lawrence area due to taxes. I pay over $700.00 a month for taxes and insurance alone. Combine tax rate, and appraised value and it really adds up.

In no way shape or form could I sell my home for appraised value. No joy at the appraisers office either.

It saddens me to think that I worked hard, paid off my home, and now can't afford to live in it.

Just one more retired person being taxed out of town.
