I don't know if this will ever be read by the person in violation but perhaps her family or friends will and relay the message to her. Yesterday about 3:30 p.m., a lady driving a dark blue Chevy Impala decided that she would not only break the law by speeding in a school zone, but barely missed hitting my daughter, who was in a marked crosswalk. I hope wherever you were going was worth it and I pray that you don't ever have to wonder what that feels like when your child calls you to tell you that they were almost hit by a car, that seemed to just come out of nowhere. And yes, my child does know when to cross the street. Apparently looking both ways and again to make sure it was safe to cross wasn't good enough. But thankfully her life was spared.
I SAW THIS SIGN AND COULDN'T RESIST. THIS PERSON DEFINITELY NEEDS TO USE THE LIBRARY OR AT LEAST GET A DICTIONARY!!!!!!
I work at the Lawrence Public Library and generally Wednesdays are eventful because of the number of teens that hangout after early school dismissal. Well yesterday may go down in history. A large group of teens gathered in the Children's section and watched two girls beat each other senseless and instead of encouraging their classmates not to engage in such behavior, they cheered them on. The entire melee may have lasted for at least ten minutes. The agressor was subdued by the security officer and when he turned his back, she took off only to be apprehended again. She didn't want to go to jail. Too late! You created a very dangerous situation among the public and you don't want to go to jail.I see an increasing number of teens hanging out, unsupervised and the problem is only going to get worse if parents don't step up and take responsibility for their children. It is not the library's responsibility to babysit your out of control children!
I am a resident of an apartment complex in East Lawrence and for the most part, I have had few complaints..........that is until now. I have no problem with anyone wanting to celebrate the holiday (or any other function for that matter) in a manner they choose. But you would think out of common courtesy for their neighbors that they would keep the noise to a minimum. Your guests may enjoy the music cranked all the way up but you are not living out in the middle of nowhere. You do have neighbors, some who work, some elderly, some that just don't want to hear music blasting for well over three hours. Surely there has to be some consideration for others around you. Sure, I can call the landlord and complain and I can call the police and send an officer out. But what will my family have to endure because of it? There is always the safety first issue. I have complained before to the landlord, and either this tennant has amnesia or doesn't give a damn!
