Tire cleanup planned on the Kansas River

April 16, 2013


Friends of the Kaw and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment will host a cleanup on the Kansas River to coincide with Earth Day on Saturday.

Volunteers removing discarded tires illegally dumped in the river near Linwood will include KDHE Secretary Robert Moser and others.

Participants will meet near Eudora at 8:30 a.m. to float the Kansas River in canoes and pick up debris along the way. The tire cleanup near Linwood will start around 11:30 a.m.

I'd like to see Sam Brownback and the Koch brothers out there for more than just a photo op. or, would that interfere with their free market any goes as long as we make money principles?

Does every freaking thing have to be partisan these days? I don't like a lot of things that Brownback has done, but good grief, this is getting ridiculous.

This is work. Hard work. Koch bros and Brownback know zero about HARD work. They have never gotten their hands dirty on a regular basis in their lives. NEVER. Gojo? Goop? Lava? These are foreign terms to these people. None of them has ever field dressed a deer or elk nor a rabbit. As Jack London wrote, they "stand on dead men's legs". Bah.

Not saying I'm a supporter at all, but I believe Brownback grew up on a dairy farm in Anderson County. I'm not sure what your experience is with milking parlors and manure management, but I would tend to say that hard work and dirty tasks are part of the life in dairy. Much more so than a life in the suburbs that is typical for most Kansans these days. I have no idea how he handles rabbits.
