4 Plants in Topeka will hire you before you even graduate with a C or better, $25 per hour to start. The problem is you won't find a job in Lawrence, because it has no industrial base. We have a lot of folks that live in Lawrence but work in Topeka.

Kansas health department issues air quality advisory because of burning

Yes the Native Americans did burn the flint hills because they found the new fresh grasses brought the Buffalo to them and they didn't have to go find them. The other thing is Red Ceder is not natural to Kansas so burning the field are the only way to keep it under control, Red Ceder was brought to Kansas by the Gov. in the 20's and 30's for wind Breaks, but they will take over a field in 10 years if not burn off to keep it under control. They do burn in Missouri unless you live in St Louis.
