I find your comment about Christians offensive and ignorant. Not all Christians think this way, in fact I would venture to say most do not think this way. How can you say that when you have no idea what a Christian (who believes in Jesus Christ) really thinks, since you sound as if you are not a believer. Your comment is the same as saying that all Doctors know how to cure cancer, because they studied medicine. Read your Bible and find a Bible teaching Church and perhaps your perspective may change. I'll pray for you P. Allen Macfarlane.

This is ridiculous. Tear the junk collector down and build a bus hut there and have a bus route go through there. This is not a holy place and to covet it is to worship a false idol. This bench does nothing but collect junk and anyone who think wishes could come out of it has been smoking too much weed. La-La Whoop-whoop. There are more important needs in this town than this eyesore.

Well I'm happy this was done. There is a special kind of hell for those who vandalized this place. I personally would like to see a beautiful fountain installed to honor these children next to the cemetery.These children endured enough in their lifetime and to have someone desecrate their final resting place is just beyond inhuman behavior.

I agree there should not be any sales tax on food, however, if the local government is so concerned about having the tax completely cut out they should only tax items which contain sugar, as in candy, cereals that contain sugar, soda, cookies, and perhaps crispy snacks, ie chips. These foods are not necessary. I disagree with the amount of 17% food insecure in this town - it is much higher than this. "Taxing needy families' food while dishing out tax abatements to rich developers is obscene." This should be outlawed.

12 stories? Are they trying to turn this town into another New York, Chicago, Kansas City or Baltimore? This will only take away the appearance of Lawrence. Why can't they limited the height of buildings? Washington DC did and even though it is a large city it still maintains that hometown feeling because people are not over shadowed by structures. I'm very disappointed and I hope the project does not go through. I'd rather see all retail than to see a 12 story building of over priced apartments. Downtown needs more free parking than buildings.

For crying out loud CITY - just put the money into building a rink that could be used as both an ice skating rink in the winter and a roller rink in the summer or both. Just think of how many ice skating teams and ice hocky teams the schools could have with competitions - how fun would that be? The teens need something like this to do. There are plenty of classes for youngsters and pre-teens at Parks & Rec but not any for older teenagers to do and a rink would be a fun place for them. So stop wasting City dollars on crap like fake ice and build something that will last and they will come.

I am saying now that if I saw a person in a building, store, gas station, anywhere with a gun I would panic and scream out "gun, take cover" as I drop to the ground or found a place to take cover and call 911. I haven't thought about people carrying concealed while out in public, until now because of the recent news which have made it more a reality. I am beginning to praise online shopping and food deliveries more and more as I frequent public places less and less, because people are becoming more crazed in society because of the lack of the wisdom of God in their lives. People, media & government think they rein over life and death and have decided what is good and bad behavior on their own merits and beliefs away from biblical wisdom.

Well this is wonderful and I commend her. I will be there for the cutting and the sewing. Don't know why I didn't think of this myself as my own mother and her sister's used torn sheets and rewashed them to reuse for their menstral cycle. Back in the 20s & 30s there was no such thing as disposal pads. This is a wonderful idea and I hope it catches on to be a positive break through in aiding homeless and low-income women.

Keep an eye on this young man - he's going to be a legend one day. I just know it.

Another example of putting just a band-aide on a problem. This is a waste of time and money as usual. Government must be bored with their jobs and trying to find something to enact. People are going to smoke whether government controls it or not. So now more money and time wasted on the judicial system trying to enact and punish those who purchase tobacco products illegally. Government is trying to control how much soda people can drink, sugar intake, etc. etc. etc. When perhaps they need to focus on real problems like the opiod epidemic and put their money where it counts into solid mental health programs and drug rehabs. How about affordable housing and not just for students, but for seniors. I am so sick of ignorant mendacious politics.
