well as for me, i don't need you to tell me about understanding, respect, rights or behavior. i have always wanted the slt built also. with the aforementioned aspects paving the way. but the money trail prevailed and the majority is still 99% getting shafted. btw, we live in a republic not a democracy. have a nice day.

A majority in the legislature voted for the SLT, the courts have upheld the SLT, and it is the law of the land. If those conditions are valid in one context, shouldn't they be valid regarding the SLT?

Kevin - Great framing question ... Both KDOT Legal Counsel and our legislature exercised willful blindness (criminal negligence?) by circumventing 1978 KSC "Golden Case" Ruling and by compromising the original 1958 Quit Claim Deed (DGCO Book 203 / Page 575) conditions ...

This conveyance is subject to the conditions that:

  1. The grantee shall use the above-described property for school AND other public purposes only.

  2. The grantee shall make the above-described property available to Indians and non-Indians on the same terms, unless otherwise approved by the (USA) Secretary of the Interior.
