City commissioners to consider final approvals for Menards project

For heaven's sake... let the retailers decide profitability! The area is blighted and empty. What am I missing? Menard's would not build and smaller retailers would not come in beside if they were wanting to lose money!

Republicans push through proposal blocking the desires of advocates for the developmentally disabled

If "Brownie" was pro-abortion I think most of you would agree with many of his positions.

Letter: Mindless matter

Reason, time, and chance are not mechanisms. They are names assigned to the process of thinking, the motion of objects in space, and randomness. How in the world did these three things get elevated to become the mechanisms of evolution? It is very short-sighted reasoning to have done so.

Letter: Attack on teaching

School choice, free market, parental choice with government subsidies, tax credits, and grants for a child's education exists from birth to kindergarten and begins again after 12th grade. Why shouldn't free market MIlton Friedmanistic choices be given to parents during their children's K-12 years? Check the LJW headlines from a couple of years ago- Gary Lewis, former principal of Lawrence's Virtual School (government funded), when he said, "Competition is good for everyone." I agree.

Sound Off: School security

I would prefer to be buying books and paying teachers more, but my vote goes for armed security guards in every school.

Brownback urging prayer on Saturday during ReignDown USA event

A fantastic event. I haven't been impressed with what men and women can do. We need the intervention of God. In my mind, this demonstrates gutsy leadership. But one thing to note. This event was not orchestrated or organiized by the governor. Christian believers with a wide range of political beliefs and ideals, from both sides of the aisle, have put this national, Topeka-based event together.

Dole tries, fails to persuade Republicans, including Sens. Roberts and Moran, to vote for treaty for disabled

On the surface this treaty made sense. But it could have resulted in the limiting of parental rights. And I am always apprehensive of any "treaty" that redefines US sovereignty.

Officials upset over reassembly of Varsity House

Fun news to read, but a very silly debate. I am sure an injunction could stop this project for the next 20 years.
“I can just say that I’m not very happy about how this has happened,” Schumm said. “I would not have voted in favor of this project if I thought what we were going to get was a replica of the Varsity House.” I thought Schumm's complaint was that he wanted the original.
