Bond set at $2 million for driver linked to construction workers' deaths

Good thing for them this didn't occur in states like Illinois, which have beefed up laws/penalties against drivers that speed and/or hit construction workers.

"Under enhanced penalties passed by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Rod Blagojevich last year, first-time work zone speeders, including those caught on camera, will be hit with a fine of $375, with $125 of that sum going to pay off-duty State Troopers to provide added enforcement in construction or maintenance zones. Two-time offenders are subject to a $1,000 fine, including a $250 surcharge to hire Troopers, and the loss of their license for 90 days.

Starting in July, State Troopers will deploy specially equipped vans that can take photographs of drivers speeding in IDOT and Tollway construction and maintenance zones. Tickets will be issued by mail to vehicle owners.

In addition, drivers who hit a worker are subject for up to a $10,000 fine and 14 years in prison."

Perhaps Kansas will reconsider their laws in the near future.

Attempt at MySpace intrusion criticized

MySpace is but one of many similar "networking" sites.

If such legislation was passed and signed into law...I'm curious to see the aftermath and how it takes a toll on similar websites.

Why can't a public school, with local control, make the decision to to block such websites from their networks? And if they can, apparently enough aren't for a law to be drafted.

Oh wait...we're getting close to an election year.

I'm so glad the Federal Government is there to "parent" all of us.

I just wish my Fed "parents" would pay off the student loans my real parents will not. ; )

Pardon me, I gave too much credit.

It should read: western Kansas. No capitalized "w" for those out west.

Publisher blasts candidate for illegally stuffing newspapers

I'm kinda shocked really...

...I didn't realize people even read newspapers in Western Kansas.

I thought the King James Version was it.

Wild stuff.
