News and notes from around town:. • What do you get when you have a vacant piece of ground next to a Wal-Mart on a busy state highway? In Lawrence, the answer is: More apartments. As weve previously reported, an idea to build a Lowes on the property just west of the Sixth and Wakarusa Wal-Mart has fallen by the wayside. That means the plans for the property revert back to what seems to have become the default answer in Lawrence: More apartments. Plans are now in for at least one apartment development on the 18-acre site. Lawrence architect Paul Werner has filed plans with the city to build 88 two-bedroom apartments on the northern 6 acres of the site. The $5 million project - dubbed Camson South - will consist mainly of two-story apartment buildings and a clubhouse. There will be more apartments on the way. Werner tells me he is drawing up plans for 280 one-bedroom apartment units that will be on the southern part of the lot. My understanding is that the two projects are being developed by ...

Miles parked his car that evening in front of an old brownstone apartment complex, located downtown, and trounced through the thick snow up to and inside the building. He was anxious to celebrate his newfound success as an artist extraordinaire, and once inside his apartment, quickly popped open his bottle of wine before turning his record player to listen to Chopin, which he listened to while he painted. Books perched upon built-in cases on his walls were like trophies to him.. Miles needed the heart control pills he had aligned upon the kitchen counter. It was important for him to be sure and take six different medications every day: carvedilol to lower his blood pressure; captopril to pump blood; losartan to stop him from coughing; digoxin to control his heart rhythm; furosemide to help him breathe easier; potassium to replace electrolytes he lost after urinating; and inotropes to stop him from coughing and stimulate his weak heart to pump blood.

When I was asked by S.R.O.to participate & represent them at the United Way HomeWalk, I was honored and excited. I raised about $700 on my own, and was told later that I was the top fundraiser for Team S.R.O. It was good to know, but that is not the reason why I asked for donations. It was to help United Way raise money to end homelessness in L.A.. I was homeless about 2 ½ years ago, due to losing my job. I slept in my Land Rover, and then eventually lost it due to not paying the tickets I would get for parking in places I could sleep at. After losing my vehicle, I found an apartment complex and slept in the stairwell with only the clothes I had on. Days went by without eating and showering. I remember how ...

This is actually more of a gritty, realistic take on another story I wrote last year. I loved that story, I thought it was fun, but I also knew that I could make something more out of it. So, that will stay there, unedited and un-updated, while this is something new, but with the same characters and vague plot points.. This is one of my first serious fanfics with plot points and adult situations and *gasp* characters having viewpoints on things within the series that directly contradict my own! Shocker, I know!. Anyway, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!. Michael thought his life was pretty average.. He had grown up in Detroit, running around with the same kids all of his life, but never straying too far from his apartment complex, per his mothers orders. As far as she was concerned, leaving her line of sight meant Michael was getting into something that would get him arrested, and she was not about to lose a son to Juvie.. Once, behind a parking garage only a block away from their ...

Today was just a normal day for me. I got up and showered and was excited and nervous at the same time for my first day of orientation. Jeff was out of town on a business trip so I did not have him to pat me on the back or kiss me good bye when I went out the door to start my first day in my new career. I got in the car and the sun had not risen yet. I pulled out of the apartment complex and was listening to the radio. I soon heard the dj talking about an airplane. I did not really understand what was going on. My first thought was that there was an airplane that had crashed somewhere in New York, but still was unaware at what had really occurred. They took a commercial break and when they came back on the air the woman dj was having difficulty keeping her emotions in check and she was crying. I still was not aware at what was occurring until they did a recap of the events that had transpired. Soon they were talking about the west coast and that the Space Needle may be a target. Here I am ...

I commend you for all your efforts to stick to what is just and right. I live in an apartment complex that has a parking space owned by the city. There are no signs anywhere that prohibits tenants to park in what appears to me as parking spaces. I started getting a ticket about 5 yrs ago and i have no clue up to now why i was given that parking ticket. Being it the first, i decided that it will be easier to pay and accepted that i violated a law. Several months later, i got another ticket while parking at a different spot, again, there was no sign that parking is not allowed. In these two parking spots, many have parked their cars but most of them do not receive a ticket bjt few others do, depending on the mood of the officer or the need of the city. On the third time that i received a parking ticket while parked in another spot, i was determined to fight it. I took pictures of my car and the parking space and also took pictures of cars that parked there after the day i got the ticket, proving ...

I lived in the South as a child until I was six years old. I remember riding through colored town with my grandmother, on Sunday mornings, looking out the window at the black people getting into their Cadillacs as they were leaving for church. Grammie would shake her head in disapproval. They always have nice cars, she told me, but they live in shacks. I was more interested in their lovely outfits. It seemed to me (at five) that they had their priorities pretty straight if they dressed up so nice for God. I remember once being thirsty when we were downtown, and seeing a water fountain, wandered over for a drink. I couldnt reach the faucet, so an elderly black man kindly lifted me up. He had just placed me gently on the sidewalk when my grandmother snatched my hand and dragged me away. Dont ever drink from a colored water fountain! What were you thinking! I was thinking I was thirsty and there was water... whats a colored water fountain? Children arent born racists, they are made that ...

Im all for a good drink, but lets not pretend this is an honest fountain. This does NOT follow the flow guidelines of county municipal code-- this font runs sweet, in industry terms, which means the flow is jacked up at least 9ml/second in order to provide a richer stream. Maybe some people are OK with a little bit of cheating when it comes to water fountains, but I say those people should not be writing reviews on a serious DF site. This is a juiced fountain, period. UPDATE: to all those who are threatening me: Im not some tattletale who will go running to the govt to report on a fountain running sweet. Enjoy your ill-gotten water and leave me alone ...

Lack of public awareness and reporting is also a problem. Because trafficking is such a hidden crime, law enforcement often doesnt know where to look unless people report suspicious activity. In June 2010 a brothel at an apartment complex in North Austin was busted; the women in the apartment were being switched out every week, held captive there, and forced to have sex with eight to 10 men a day. Fuentes says that after the raid, many neighbors told officers they had thought something strange was going on. They all saw men coming in and out constantly, but no one reported anything.. Americas dirty little secret is that the Internet is a major vehicle for trafficking and commercial sex. Many children and enslaved prostitutes are sold through the Internet, which provides an unfettered playground for predators. The popular website Craigslist has come under fire but has made efforts to screen its adult services ads. These ads are expected to earn a third of Craigslists revenue this year, more ...

If you have ever lived in a tourist town - say Williamsburg, for example - you know that after a season of no vacancy signs in the hotel windows, there will follow in about 12 to 18 months a building boom in hotels. A scarcity of apartments that pushes up rents in a city will have the same impact. Suddenly new apartment complexes seem to sprout like dandelions; followed by vacancy signs that are, in turn, followed by deals you can't resist - like the first month's rent free.
Have you given up pizza, or have you found a healthier way of making it? Are you paying for an expensive gym membership, or do you have the things you need to exercise?. A little secret that I have experienced by living healthier than I did, is that to be healthy is to truly experience the spice of life. You may have your routines, but there is always something that you can try differently. I cannot see going back to how it was, with me being overweight and out of shape.. I am guilty of having a gym membership and I use it frequently so I get my moneys worth, but there are times when I slack off. I dont believe I will renew my membership when it comes time. There is a gym at my new apartment complex. I also have equipment or am planning to buy a few things like kettle weights and a stability ball.. Exercising involves movement, and that is free. If you want to body build you go one direction, if you want to live healthy, get a pedometer and walk 10000 steps a day. Clean your apartment or ...

Its a complicated relationship to figure out, because variables that affect how many trees you see each day could also affect your health. The population of a concrete, inner-city apartment complex may have socioeconomic differences, for example, from the population of a leafy, well-tended suburb. University of Chicago psychologist Marc Berman and his colleagues used a detailed analysis to try to tease out the impact of trees themselves.. They started by going to Canada. In a country with universal health care, they figured, access to doctors isnt as much of a variable as in the United States.Since socioeconomic status can still affect how people use doctors, the authors also gathered information on their subjects income and education. And rather than comparing people from multiple areas, they focused only on the city of Toronto.. From a large-scale, ongoing project called the Ontario Health Study, the authors collected data on over 31,000 adult residents of Toronto. In addition to household ...

May 1999. Everyone in the apartment complex I lived in knew who Ugly was. Ugly was the resident tomcat. Ugly loved three things in this world: fighting, eating garbage, and shall we say, love. The combination of these things combined with a life spent outside had their effect on Ugly. To start with, he had only one eye, and where the other should have been was a gaping hole. He was also missing his ear on the same side, his left foot has appeared to have been badly broken at one time, and had healed at an unnatural angle, making him look like he was always turning the corner. His tail has long been lost, leaving only the smallest stub, which he would constantly jerk and twitch. Ugly would have been a dark gray tabby striped-type, except for the sores covering his head, neck, even his shoulders with thick, yellowing scabs. Every time someone saw Ugly there was the same reaction. Thats one UGLY cat!! All the children were warned not to touch him, the adults threw rocks at him, hosed him down, ...
I watch the obituaries and find that lots of people younger than I am have died. Living in a senior apartment complex makes me very aware that there are people younger than I who look much, much older and are really in very sad shape. So I tell myself that Im not doing too badly. This morning Jerry and I went to the Los Angeles County Fair and I wanted to wear my Nikes, which are good for walking, so I jumped into a pair of jeans and a tee-shirt. It flashed through my mind to wonder just how many 73 year olds run around in jeans. I smiled to myself, because I think I am a jeans kind of girl (woman!). One time many years ago, my teenaged granddaughter said to me, Grandma, you just dont look like other grandmas! I love the way you look. Of course when I look in the mirror now in my own minds eye I see myself as that same Grandma April was talking about, but I suppose I have aged in my looks in 20 years! But just a little ...
