Kansas Republican lawmakers seek to streamline death penalty appeals

Here's a quick way to eliminate the appeals: eliminate the law.

It seems that the exact same argument has been going on for 50-straight years.

Letter: Universal care

I've never heard of a single person or organization that suggests Medicare as the ideal health care system.

Now, tell us about your years of advocacy for better veteran treatment.

Expert on livable communities to evaluate Barker neighborhood

Getting some outside opinions, based on what works in other communities, is a great idea for Lawrence. Can't wait to hear the results.

Planning Commission recommends denial of major shopping center along SLT

You're suggesting that we are on our way to becoming the next Boulder? That's ridiculous. We're closer to becoming the next Topeka if we don't start thinking bigger and better than some retail developer.

Kansans to receive more than $3.6 million in insurance reimbursements under Obamacare

One of the best, if not the best, pieces of federal legislation in 50 years. It's already starting to impact the rising cost of health care.

And yet.....health insurance companies raked in record profits, with record salaries and bonuses for executives while they provided the most expensive services imaginable with some of the least effective results in the world.

And Tanger wasn't a mall, it was a strip center. And both ventures were "outlets".

Planning Commission recommends denial of major shopping center along SLT

Free market forces gave us the most expensive and least efficient health care system for decades - but the investors got theirs! Free market forces drove the internet bubble, the real estate bubble, the great recession and on and on. To suggest that we let a bunch of out-of-town profiteers determine the future of our landscape is simply irresponsible.

Planning doesn't always work, that is for sure. But I'll take it over the repeated retail lurch that you can witness in city, after city, after city.

Malls are dying pretty much everywhere in the country. Had they built that mall, they would have destroyed downtown and would now have an empty mall to deal with. Look around.....

That's about to change. The rec center opens this fall, along with new path plus Rock Chalk Park. Homes are now being built adjacent to the RCP development and, by the way, the SLT also travels directly by this intersection. Frankly, we don't need any new additional retail anywhere but, if we're going to build it, then we should put it where we want it.

I often read statements to the effect: let the businesses decide where it's best to locate. Well, it's our job to plan and grow our city, not a bunch of out-of-town middle managers. We decide what we want the community to look like, not a group of retail executives who sit around reading traffic counters.
