Ha, ha, have a couple of dozen rifles and guns. I am not afraid of them. I am afraid of upset people using them to kill innocent victims.

No, but combined with modifying the draft, it gave millions the right to live. Both sides need to make concessions. An 18 year old does not need an AK-15. Maybe gun ranges could rent them out to use at the range for young people to shoot. May not be an option but just trying to show that maybe solutions can be found if we give it some thought.

I can't help but be reminded of the Viet Nam war demonstrations. Started by young people who didn't want to die in war that had been going on for almost 20 years. How long would that war have gone one if the young people affected the most had not stood up and said "enough is enough"

Come on KU, cancel the afternoon classes. I know you have to have classes for half a day to get some sort of funding for that day, but is it worth it. There are a few professors that will hold it against you if you miss a class so there are some students that will try to go unless cancelled.

I have a feeling the rents quoted are for complexes with furnishings, washer and dryer in unit, exercise room, pool and private bus service provided. Thus, you are paying for more than rent. Otherwise, for just an apartment, you can find a nice 2 bedroom for $550 to $650. That being said, yes I will raise the rent to cover the higher taxes this year not to mention insurance. Speaking of insurance, people need to quit complaining about landlords not allowing certain breeds. Usually it is not the landlord but the insurance company that will not allow certain breeds.

I have known several people in the past that were told the LHS could not take their animal because there was no room due to the fact they had taken in animals from other parts of the state. I do not think any Lawrence animal should ever be turned away.

Both of the people I know that live in sales tax free states pay really high property taxes. Is it any coincidence that the rents are also high? Landlords will raise their rents. Have a feeling rents will go up in Lawrence this year since the property taxes jumped up with the increased mill levies Think about the problems increased property taxes will cause elderly, fixed income homeowners . Be careful what you wish for.

Maybe the city should build the new police station there, :)

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.
