All together now, "Alcohol was believed to be involved."

When are officials finally going to realize and do something about the living arrangements of these children. They are unsupervized and left alone for long periods....days...at a time!! This father has had numerous complaints against him... what is it going to take..he is uncapable of parenting his children!!

What children? The article discusses "where two Lawrence-area men" and says nothing about children.

I am sure there are many people in Lawrence that are aware kids live at this residence.....they need a parent not another "buddy"

I'm a bit confused. What kids? It doesn't even say the address. It just says the 1100 block of East 1264 Road.

abcdefg - I live in Lawrence and don't know what residence it is, much less whether or not children live there.

I don't know why they are referring to them as men. They may be 18, I'm not sure. They attend Lawrence High School. It was a party and yes there was alcohol involved. My understanding is that the father was home.
