Jenkins votes to block Pentagon from studying climate change

Climate has no more effect on national defense than typhoons have on the microprocessor industry.

Children's advocates call on Brownback to veto transfer of $5 million from children's programs to KBA

How much of that 5 million is going to be earmarked for the CIBOR failure in Wichita. That KBA joke of a program has become a moneypit. They talked of thousands of jobs for Wichita when they created that innovation center years ago, and all they have done is create a web site and vapor. How many millions of dollars later?

Kansas public broadcasting could lose funding

I wonder how Rep. Peck would feel if all those involved in agribusiness in his district lost their government subsidies.

Crowd packs school board meeting to protest firing of LHS basketball coach Mike Lewis

Two points. The first is "Idle speculation". There is no evidence that there are problems with Coach Lewis. The fact that the staff at Southwest Middle School supported Coach Lewis yesterday by wearing black would be a strong indicator that he has solid relationships there. The second point would be the coach's reputed character. Based on the points made during the school board meeting last night by parents and teachers, Coach Lewis is a role model. One of the things many role models do is follow maxims such as "If you don't have anything nice to say about someone, don't say anything at all". The fact that so many have rallied to Coach Lewis' defense ought to satisfy most in the community, the exception being those that are looking for some far-fetched fuel for gossip and allegations bordering on the ludicrous.

Brownback signs Medicare, gun bills

Let me see if I have this straight. We can't trust the Federal government, so Sam is going to control Medicare. We can't trust our locally voted-upon officials, so Sam is going to control all gun laws for the state of Kansas, too. Education, Health Care, Judicial Appointments, Guns... looks like he's consolidating power.

In new ad, group backing Brownback praises governor for school bill but doesn't mention repeal of teacher tenure

Anybody want to bet that a significant number of the "low-income children" that benefit from the private school scholarships also excel at sports?

Private health clubs get property tax exemption under Senate amendment

It sure would be nice if Lawrence had a YMCA or YWCA to compete with the for-profit gyms in Lawrence that have few-to-zero youth programs. Granted, the LPR does a pretty good job, but more gym space would be a tremendous boon to the community.

Catch up, Phillip. Joel Embiid posted this on his twitter account in a tweet to Cliff Alexander about 8:22 this morning that he hasn't made a decision yet.

Brownback signs into law bill limiting party switching

I keep waiting for the quip about those switching from the GOP will be subject to Sharia law.
