Saturday Column: Release of KU emails is academic freedom issue

Sam, you are free to make such a request going through the same channels as Schuyler Kraus did and, most likely, there will be a charge for the search and recovery of those documents approximately the same as for Schuyler Kraus ($1,800). It is your right to do so, as a citizen, as much as it was her right to do so as a citizen and as a Student of the University.

Saturday Column: Release of KU emails is academic freedom issue

Mr. Simons, please let us all know if you find evidence that Communist China is about to spend a Billion Dollars on our next election to influence the outcome in their favor. Also, please let us know if you have evidence that Communist China is influencing Tax policy on the State and National Level. Any evidence that Communist China has Lobbyists trying to undermine Clean water and Clean Air Laws in our Nation would also be helpful. They have already decimated theirs. Nice Diversionary Tactic, though. Joe McCarthy would be proud.

Lawrence school district proposes more than $1.2 million in budget cuts and reallocations

I am with you on this one ,Bob. I learned that name calling discredits the speaker. A good discussion is possible while maintaining civility. Bring on the facts and let us discuss them in a Civil manner. I cannot imagine forming a serious opinion without hearing points of view from all sides. I just tuned out of conversations when they turned ugly.

Lawrence school district proposes more than $1.2 million in budget cuts and reallocations

Mr. Trabert, how would You feel and, more importantly, how would You react if Your employer said "No more Paychecks for You until You spend down most of Your savings. You don't have to spend all of it, just spend Your savings down until We think it is enough to warrant giving You a Paycheck again."?

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.

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

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?
