I have to say some Lawrence police are wonderful upstanding officers. Others have been on the job to long and take perks from the people who commit crime and continue to give our city a bad name. I think once a detective is selling out victims in order to stay in good with the crooks because they always know where to go is a very good sign that it's time to start hiring some new guys in here.

On another note: I love the way Lawrence is looking it Ft. Ben looks great. Here's a thought for ya though. So many people enter Lawrence through 46th at Walgreens why doesn't someone set a color palet to use on buildings so it doesn't look ghetto. Bright blue and mustard yellow right at the entrance to our city is horrible. Then people who live down the road... Fiancé them when they refuse to clean up trash, cut grass, ole mayor ole mayor don't forget there is more to Lawrence than what you see outside your office window and many of us actually care about it!!

patch kit Remove the valve cap and fully deflate the tube by depressing the valve ICAbike01 stem with the hooked end of your tire lever. There are two main types of valve stems, a schrader valve and a presta valve. This tutorial is based on a schrader valve, but I will be covering the different valve types in another tutorial.
Now it’s time to remove your tire,[url=http://www.icarbonsp orts.com/products/wheels-rims/ carbon-bike-rims/]carbon fiber rims[/url]oneside at a time. Choose a section of tire that is away from the valve and hook one of the tire levers under the bead, directly in line with one of your spokes. Pry one side of the tire bead over the edge of the rim, and then hook the end of the tire lever to the nearest spoke. Insert another tire lever two spokes away from the first, and a third another two spokes away. Now the middle lever should fall out, and you can continue the process. When the tire is loose enough you can just run a tire lever around the rest of the rim to pull the whole side over.
After you have removed one side of the tire, the other side should come off very easily.
Ispect Tube
ow remove the tube from the tire, and try to keep track ICAbike01 of [url=http://www.icarbonsports. com/products/wheels-rims/carbo n-bike-rims/]carbon bike rims[/url]where it was positioned in relation to the tire. Inflate the tube to approximately twice its original size. This will expand the hole making it easier to find.
Listen carefully to the entire circumference of the tube; you should hear a hissing sound that will indicate where the leak is. As a last resort you can submerge the tube in water and watch for bubbles, but you’ll want to avoid doing this as you’ll need the tube to be completely dry in order for the patch glue to work.
Once you’ve found the leak, take note of [url=http://www.icarbonsports. com/products/wheels-rims/carbo n-bike-rims/]carbon bicycle rims[/url]whether it is on the inner or outer side of the tube.
I don’t recommend using either motor oil or 3in1 oil to lubricate the chain. Motor oil is too heavy and won’t fully penetrate the rollers, and 3in1 oil is vegetable based and will gum up the chain. I also don’t recommend using wax lubricants because while they don’t collect as much dirt, they are a lot of hassle to apply correctly, and wax is simply not as good a lubricant as oil. I do recommend mineral based chain oils like Finish Line Cross Country or Phil Wood Tenacious Oil because they do the best job of fighting corrosion and don’t wash away when they get wet.
Chain Cleaning
For cleaning, first shift the chain into the [url=http://www.icarbonsports. com/]zipp 404[/url]smallest sprocket on the rear. For average dust and dirt, wipe the chain clean with a solvent soaked rag. The easiest way to do this is to hold the chain still at the rear derailleur cage while firmly wiping the lower run of the chain. Then move the chain backward and wipe again until you’ve wiped the entire length of chain. Wipe between the rear sprockets using either a rag or a sprocket cleaning tool. Then clean all of the front chainrings on both sides.
Shift your gears into the middle sprocket both front and rear. Remember that oil does a good job of spreading itself, so try not to over-apply the lubricant. Lubricate the inner circumference of the chain, on the side that faces the sprockets along the top of the lower run of the chain. Run the chain backwards while dropping oil down both sides of the rollers.
Shift through all of the gears to spread the lubricant evenly through the drivetrain. Then use a rag to wipe off any excess oil.

We for sure need some changes around here! There is one shady ass cop that loves to block off basically our whole street all the time (we are waiting for a wreck) he tickets one guy on the street that owns his own home that parked for about 30 min on a dead end in front of his home going the wrong direction right next to the railroad tracks $75.00 ticket. Had a couple renters move in couple doors down that do it 24/7 and they have gotten nothing at all and this same officer just waits for my neighbor. Guy who's never broken the law, all because he told him he needed to patrol Lawrence park due to the fighting.
Cleaning house should have been this mayors first job instead he really cleaned house and cut back our fire dept to way unsafe numbers.
I wish this abuse of power would stop and when I find a way it'll be done

Kudos for standing up against the others. You must live near me. Off 46th street??? At least one of our streets are done this way daily throughout spring/ summer and still have a rat hole of a park that is filled with graffiti. They even have the names of the kids who did it

Shame LPD

I sure do, and I know about the brat kids and Mailed pics of the park to the mayor starting 2 maybe 3 years ago even sat down with them they do nothing they say they will do. I'm considering taking pictures and blowing them up in size and hanging them up for all to see on voting day to remind all not to make the same mistakes
