From the North Lawrence page "Hello Friends and Neighbors! A reminder about the local municipal and school board elections on Tuesday. Also wanted you all to be aware that there is also a drainage district election as well. That involves a separate poll book and an additional ballot for property owners. If you want to preview the general ballot, that can be found by doing a voter registration search on the DG county voting and elections page. Hope to see you all on Tuesday!"

From what I gather, only the property owners got to vote. My point was how can you vote on something they didn't tell you about.

Have just now heard that there was a separate extra ballot for North Lawrence property owners that you had to vote for only at the North Lawrence poll. So if your residence was not in North Lawrence, you had to vote at two different locations. Problem is I and a couple of others that I know of never heard of this till today. I searched all over the voting sites and sample ballots for that district and found nothing. Shouldn't property owners have received something in the mail so they would know about this and what the vote was about? There is no way the results can be valid. Renters in North Lawrence may not vote the same as property owners. Lawrence Journal World needs to look into this.

Talked to my sister in Austin, TX yesterday. She told me about sitting in line over a block long to get gas after she finally found one that still had gas. She was shocked to find out gas was 45 cents more here than what she paid even with the price gouging going on there.

So I have a couple of questions, first the Humane Society. I have had a lot of people tell me that when they tried to surrender their pet (for which there is a fee) they were told they couldn't accept it because they took in a bunch of animals from elsewhere in the state. This probably led to the animals just abandoned on the street. So are we building and paying for a new facility for animals that really are someone else's responsibility? A 21 year old building is not that old. Second, the now vacant Animal control, parking meter readers and crossing guard supervisor. In years past these departments were assigned to a police Sargent to handle, it is only recently that a civilian was hired to oversee them. The city technology department should be able to handle the new kiosks, and since there will be less parking meter personnel, why do we need to do a nationwide search for a new supervisor? Is this position really necessary? I would rather be paying a city auditor.

Is the Oread Hotel still exempt, maybe just partially, from paying school taxes. I seem to remember the school board giving them a pass on taxes, just not sure how long it was for.

As far as state taxes, how much will it go up for couples with no children. Some of us don't get dependent credits.
