Kansas Republicans don't see convention's tone as too harsh

As far as I can tell they think the problems are, National Security, illegal immigration, the economy, foreign policy, domestic policy, over-reaching regulation, healthcare reform that is not working, infrastructure, political cronyism, corruption, I can probably think of a few more.

What I have heard their solutions are is in order, Rebuild the military, protect the borders with technology and a wall, create an environment where trade is fair and jobs quit leaving the country, put people to work and create an environment where all are lifted up, reform regulation especially at the EPA, redo healthcare reform, focus on infrastructure needs, not be beholden to money interest and lobbyist.

So I have heard clear problems and solutions at his convention (Of course I am actually watching it and not reading commentators)

It will be interesting next week to hear what the Democrats think the problems are and their solutions to those problems. (I will be watching that convention too)

Plans for downtown grocery store growing; Price Chopper still in the mix on project

Price Chopper has some of the nicer stores in Kansas City with onsite butchers like Checkers. What are you implying by the "little people" Price Chopper's customer demographics are broad, not narrow.

Grocers are not getting smaller. Groceries are getting larger and offering more and more services like ready made food, bars and dining areas. Smaller is not the order of the day.

Editorial: Fireworks ban

Gardner Kansas recently reenacted the ability to shoot fireworks in their city.

Looking at the "Citizens for the Future of Gardner" Facebook page you saw a few complaints. However, you also found story after story of neighborhoods getting together, having block parties and just enjoying the fourth of July. It brought back a sense of community.

KU's Baldwin Woods Forest Preserve grows after being designated a Legacy Forest

I have wanted to go out there for years. It is a shame to have such a treasure right here and not have access to it.

I certainly hope they do find an area that would work for careful public access that would preserve the area as much as possible..

A look at the $200 million debate that is coming to west Lawrence; Schumm seeks to reverse denial of downtown condo project

How much does real carved stone cost? If you think rents are high now in downtown try building a building with craftsmen, carved wood, carved stone, plaster etc....

Tony, How is using something that makes the building affordable fake? How much were these craftsmen back in the 1800's paid to build the "real" buildings? I would suppose that in today's dollars they made next to nothing.

New numbers show lack of racial diversity in Douglas County; minority numbers, though, are growing

In other words it looks like it is similar to the rest of the State. Thanks for doing the simple research on my rhetorical question.

Letter to the editor: Trump questions

I have not heard Trump say take our country back, Hillary has said it though. I have heard "Make America Great Again".

I would suppose what Mr. Trump is referring to is the loss of a manufacturing base. People who have dropped out of the job market. Trade deficits. A country that has been in the economic doldrums for the last eight years. Becoming a debtor nation. A system at Wall street that does appear to be rigged. Lobbyist and corporate Influence. Corrupt politicians. Banking laws that favor the big banks and attacks the regional and local banks.

I can probably think of some more but you get the idea.

I wonder how diverse the State of Kansas is in comparison to Douglas County.
