City commissioner to host meeting Thursday on improving storm shelter availability

gccs, actually having each home undergo a structural analysis, adding about $5,000 of structural hardware or going to reinforced concrete design, adding storm shutters to all doors, windows, and other openings or going to hurricane proof glazing will get you protection up to 130 mph. Many of these tornadoes have wind speeds much higher than that.

Brownback signs into law measure making KDOT secretary the director of operations of Kansas Turnpike

To all of the above. You have no idea what this decision means and no idea whether or not it will be a successful one. But you do sound like a bunch of whiners.

Somebody, you can take care of your health. Live a lifestyle that doesn't require abortions or, if that fails, pay for your own abortion.

Brownback wants to keep higher state sales tax; Democrats say that proves his income tax policy isn't working

No need to cut the sales tax. Everybody needs a little skin in the game.

Senate advances bill giving private health clubs property tax break

I hate that this is being proposed. It is wrong on so many levels. That said, I also don't think that cities/counties/townships/etc. should be in the business of providing rec centers or health clubs, that don't pay property taxes, and that compete directly with private enterprise. This applies to golf courses as well. How can a private golf course, paying probably 30-40% of its gross revenue in property taxes and water bills, compete with a public course which doesn't?
