11 states sue over Obama's school transgender directive

Appears as though our representative government has evolved since 1791. I can see where a disbelief in evolution could lead one to perceive time as standing still.

"With the expanded role of the national government validated in the New Deal era, the domain designated as “reserved to the States . . . or to the People” shrank dramatically. Further, during the Civil Rights era, when Congress and federal courts were taking measures to end racial discrimination, the Tenth Amendment became associated with assertions of “states’ rights” to resist claims of civil rights. The Tenth Amendment suffered from the assertion that the powers reserved to the states included the power to enforce racial inequality. Politically, socially, and morally, the Tenth Amendment seemed to speak to the past, not the present or the future."

Kansas authorizes sale of bioscience agency

The Kansas Bioscience Authority was extremely effective in laundering $ in support of the National Bio & Agro-defense Facility (NBAF). So much so, that the DHS site selection official who chose KSU had no idea he'd been receiving advice from Dr. David R. Franz, a member of the KBA executive committee, head of KSU's early bio-terrorism "house of cards," member of Sebelius' NBAF in KS brigade, VP of Midwest Research Institute (DHS contractor), and commander of USAMRIID = enabler of the Anthrax Mailer. At last count, the KBA had given MRI $450,000.

Video touts unity between Chamber, state

By Mary Clark in The Hutchinson News | Updated 10 months ago

"Gov. Sam Brownback and top leaders in the Kansas Legislature took turns before the camera for a new video promoting the Kansas Chamber of Commerce.

The University Of Kansas' School Of Business Dean Neeli Bendapudi is the only person from academia who appears. . . .

Bendapudi served as master of ceremonies at the Chamber's annual banquet this year, and she "was a natural for inclusion in the video," O'Neal said."

Kansas Forest Service deals with fires, budget constraints

~ 2001, a newly-hired KS Forest Service "fire mgmt" specialist told natural resource mgmt students @ KSU that he was hoping to establish a fire-fighting certification program so that graduates could compete for jobs with the US Forest Service. He described initiating controlled burns for red cedars on CoE lands @ Tuttle Creek Reservoir. Nothing came of it, and the red cedars are more rampant than ever.

Many counties have a noxious weed dept. Red cedars => giant, flammable noxious weeds on the prairie.
