Challenged by the center, Brownback sticks to hard-right message

Excellent point, Phillip. Religious leaders across the country are worried about young adults shying away from Church and Religion in general. So called "Conservative Christians" are a very Loud and Visible group and their recent actions on political and social issues have soured some peoples view of Christianity. Ironically, They are damaging Their own Religion with Their actions. Sad. The Christianity I grew up with was about Tolerance and Love, not Intolerance and Hatred . This Needs to change before we can expect anything else to change for the better. "Love Thy Neighbor."

Challenged by the center, Brownback sticks to hard-right message

The LJW is not the only Newspaper that does this. I read several Newspapers from several different areas of the US. It is interesting to see the different perspectives. Kansas is rarely talked about nationally. But, lately, the few stories there have been are not flattering. Not uncommon for Newspaper owners to protect a powerful political ally. It is Dolph's Paper. I am used to it now.

Challenged by the center, Brownback sticks to hard-right message

The Texas Legislature looks down on Austin much Like The Kansas Legislature looks down on Lawrence. Just about every"Liberal" city in every state seems to be a "College" town. What do Conservatives have against Education and Knowledge? Oh! Right. They tend to bring about discovery of the Truth.

Yes. Interesting story. Funny that a story of this Political significance on the National and State Level was relegated to a teeny Blurb on Page 7a of the Printed Version but Nothing online. Easy to see whose Paper it is. He can slam the POTUS all day long but he is not much on the Media piling up on his Buddies. I Hope Gov. Brownback gets Just as Lucky as Gov. Perry!

State now operating on thin margin

$350 Million Surplus Sounds Like a lot of money. But, then Why Did The Legislature just Borrow $675 Million for this next Years Budget? Sounds Like the "Surplus" you are referring to is only about Half of what is needed. That means your $350 million "Surplus" actually leaves Kansas "in the hole". Kansas also held up payments on Income tax returns, probably to make the Tax Revenue numbers "look Better". Brownback's Tax Cuts are having obvious Negative effects, Believe it or not.

New City Hall report estimates it will take tens of millions to fix city sidewalks

Thanks Carol. Since my side of the block never had a sidewalk in the first place, I must admit I know very little about Responsibilities concerning them except the Snow Shoveling Ordinance. Since the sidewalk is in what most would call the City Easement, I thought it was theirs. I think most people are in the same situation.Yes, the Sidewalks are either non-existent or in Poor shape But, I was asking why Not fix the Streets? I use the sidewalks occasionally. I use the Streets Every Day. It has cost me 2 front tires, a steel wheel and a Strut in the last 2 years because of Potholes that were unavoidable or hidden in the snow. All on my wife's car and she is Known for driving slow.
