Commissioners support new building codes policy, say Kobach did not get special treatment; others not so sure

This would most likely fall under the category of "Abuse of Authority for Personal Gain." Lying on a County Document must have some penalty associated with it.

Whether they changed the rules or not, it still appears the Secretary of State lied on an affidavit sent to the County officials about the intended use of the structure. Did the change in the rules reflect that it is now OK to Lie to County officials on legal, written records? If not, then they still have a serious problem on their hands and it does have the appearance that Secretary of State Kobach considers himself above the Law that all other citizens must and have always been required to adhere to.

Labor department reports weak job growth in Kansas

I just left a Position at a Public Institution of Higher Education after 20 years of service for a much higher paying position with comparable benefits in the private sector. I will still live in Kansas and almost all of my work will be in Kansas but my New employer is in KCMO. If the pay had gone up over the years to reflect my experience and some cost of living increase, my employer would still be the State of Kansas. I wonder how my situation will affect the employment numbers and I also wonder how many others are going through a similar experience.

Tax plans coming together, but business owners' taxes still a hot issue

How is Taxing the income for a Business "Stealing" but Taxing the income for a Worker not?

Douglas County says Kobach was not shown favoritism in building case; failure to be strict on building codes was result of new, unwritten policy

I am with Cheryl Nelsen. This does not pass the Smell Test on multiple levels.

Kansas House rejects plan to raise sales tax to fix budget

Well, Andy, apparently our Republican led State Government doesn't know how to create Wealth for anyone other than the already Wealthy. The current Redistribution of Wealth seems to be from the bottom to the top and only to a few. Please enlighten all of us Critical Thinkers as to how it is done. It is Complex I am sure.

Kansas House rejects plan to raise sales tax to fix budget

"We have made a commitment to Business owners." Republican Rep. Randy Powell, Olathe. Thank you for pointing out who you really support and it is obviously not your constituents. 2.9 million people in Kansas and you commit your support to 281,000 business owners and 53,000 farmers(figures from this article). I hope everyone remembers this statement along with your name come next election. Your job is to represent (hence your title Representative) ALL Kansans, not just your campaign contributors and Special interest groups. You gave business owners a Tax Break in order to create jobs and promote economic growth. Neither have materialized. You have failed the majority of your constituents since they far outweigh the number of Businesses. Overall Grade for your performance? A big, fat "F" for Fail!

Teachers, parents unhappy after teacher loses job

Thank You, Nick but I have seen worse words used towards members of our State Government and against people that oppose their views by people who support their views and vice versa. The criteria for deletion does not seem very consistent. Just an observation.

Teachers, parents unhappy after teacher loses job

I find it very interesting that two posts that were critical of the Principal of Langston Hughes Elementary were Deleted even though the first story listed that is related to this story is about the Principal of Langston Hughes Elementary. I read the posts from Dave Bonnell and Marvin Shanks, before they were deleted, regarding their Personal experience with this person whom I shall not name for fear of being deleted myself. This just leaves me with more Questions about what is going on at this Elementary School.
