Say goodbye to McDonalds.

SAD!!! One of the few things in Baldwin that are also found in a more progressive town. Even if the order wasn't always right at lest we had a McDonald's. People and businesses, it seems, are leaving here like rats on a sinking ship.

Thunderstorms dump 4-plus inches of rain on Baldwin City

I have an electronic rain gauge and it measured 3.82 inches of rain. I really want it to show four inches but no such luck. No doubt other areas of Baldwin got more rain and other area got less. The power outages were short and that is what we should expect.

Do you believe Baldwin City needs its own ambulance service?

I agree that we do need ambulance service. I would not live here if we didn't have one within the city. This however should be a Douglas County ambulance service not local service only. First, the citizens of Baldwin City can not afford it. (Our taxes are already to high) Number two, there would be a very large turnover of employees, much as the Baldwin City Police Department. We would give them on the job experience then they would move on to bigger & better jobs.

Officials: Baldwin City ambulance staff won’t be cut

Lawrence's City Manager David Corliss has made a very large mistake. His actions to scuttle the Baldwin City-based ambulance was not a smart move. He might be book smart but he seems to lack good old common sense. He should also do his homework so he won't make errors in state licensing guidelines and violate legal agreement's that affect thousands of tax payers! His comment “I do not apologize for looking for ways to cut the budget,” is both callus and cold! We the people of Southern Douglas County thank Douglas County Commissioner Jim Flory and County Administrator Craig Weinaug for correcting Mr Corliss's grievous errors.

Dorathy, school board talk school closings

Children don't sacrifice they adapt. It is the parents that won't change and create the continuing problems.

Douglas County learns Baldwin City will lose an ambulance in 2011

This is a lot more than loss of services! We should regard the heartless remarks by the Douglas Co. commissioners as a serious death threat to our families and everyone else living in Baldwin City & Southern Douglas Co. According to them a life in Southern Douglas County isn’t worth much. In order to save the Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical $65,000 next year in overtime expenses they are putting all our lives at risk. Currently the time to transport a patient from Baldwin City to Lawrence Memorial Hospital is about 40 minutes not including response time, on scene treatment, loading & unloading the patient. That time will increase well over 70 minutes excluding communications, on scene treatment and the loading & unloading of a patient or patients. You will no longer have that “Golden Hour”. It means after one hour the survival rate for traumatic patients is alleged to fall off dramatically. Isn’t your child’s life and those of us living in Southern Douglas Co. worth more than $65,000? We need to take some action!

Electrical rates could be increasing 6 to 12 percent

This is just another big load of crap! This town is the most mismanaged town in the State of Kansas! In Baldwin "City?" financial responsibility are just words found in a dictionary. Word is out that Baldwin "City?" is not a place to live! Why move here when it is far cheaper to live in other communities. Our property values have dropped & continue to drop. We need to face the fact that there seems to be no hope for a brighter future in this town. Maybe we should just sell our homes at a loss and get out.
