Don't know if it applies to KU since it's State property but the City has construction codes on the books about that. It's a photometric range that's used for illumination and light can't exceed a certain range of the source.

I don't care for the new LED lights because the light is so bright and harsh I find it harder to see at night while driving because my eyes are constantly trying to adjust between the bright and dark sections since they don't illuminate evenly.

Not true. Every property comes with some sort of restriction on what's allowed and not allowed. That's why there are codes in place. If there weren't any you could end up a pig farm 20 feet from your own front door.

Porn isn't anything new. It's existed for thousands of years and can be found in ancient art from every culture around the world.

Actually 2 1/2 checks because my Social Security will also be taxed.

Property taxes in Lawrence are already killing me primarily because of the school district levy and the school bonds. My property taxes are now the equivalent of what I paid for half a year of mortgage payments and that covered principle, interest, taxes, and insurance.

Increases also hit the single elderly property owner living on a fixed income the hardest. By the time I'm old enough to start drawing social security it'll take two entire monthly checks just to pay my property taxes.

Driver's license photos are never flattering but as long as your eyes are open it doesn't matter. One year when I had my license renewed the photo was so bad the woman at the DMV who took the photo looked at it and said, "we're shooting THAT one again."

I never saw the photo but it must have been pretty horrific if the DMV wanted to reshoot it.

But it has to be a "non-laminated" social security card. The one I've had for the last 43 would no longer be sufficient proof because it was laminated decades ago.

I said at a minimum.

Getting the right paperwork isn't always easy. I used to do attendant work for an elderly woman who wanted to attend her granddaughter's wedding in Virginia but didn't have a current photo ID that she needed to get on the plane. Couldn't get a Kansas ID card because her driver's license and passport had expired too far in the past so she had to request a copy of her birth certificate and start from the very beginning.

Not easy to do because she was born in North Dakota but didn't know where and North Dakota requires a copy of a current valid photo ID before they'll send a copy of a birth certificate.
