Letter to the editor: Pence praise

I wish Pence was the republican candidate for president, he really impresses me.

Editorial: Not rigged

I am not convinced that it is not rigged. After all it is the democrats that are accused of using dead people's names and voting with them.

Editorial: Decent start

I am quite pleased at the drop in crime, I hope it extends to rural areas, too. The rape statistic really concerns me. I find myself wondering if constitutional carry has anything to do with the drop. I dealt with many a criminal in my 30 years as a peace officer. They do not generally think as we do, but none want to get shot. I had one tell me on his way to jail, after I arrested him, "my job is to break the law, your job is to catch me". His understanding amazed me.

Topeka woman convicted of mistreating two dependent adults; prosecutor recommends probation

The sentencing guidelines need to be changed. Someone who treats mentally challenged people as is described in this article, needs to be in prison.

KU seeks to require holsters, other safety measures for guns on campus

I have no plans to ever go onto the KU campus. If I did, I would not obey the ridiculous guidelines set forth in this article. What good is a semi-auto pistol without a round in the chamber. I have never carried a semi-auto pistol like that. Why have the safety on when there is no round in the chamber? I have never carried a revolver with an empty chamber, either. People carry firearms for self defense. Both of these stupid ideas would cause a delay in the firearm functioning properly, which could cost someone their life. KU is trying to get around the intent of the law, which is carrying a loaded firearm for self defense. As dumb as these guidelines are I am surprised that they don't require the firearm be unloaded. This is a prime example of what happens when a bunch of liberals, without knowledge of how firearms function, try and regulate them. I am a retired peace officer. I have carried the same .45 pistol for over twenty five years. It is a DA/SA pistol, which means it is as safe to carry loaded, with the safety off, as is a revolver. People who know anything about guns know this. I expect that the legislature will have to make another law depriving universities of the ability to micro manage how firearms are to be carried, and to add language to make sure they do not try and work around the intent of the law.

Decontamination of Community Building gun range to cost city thousands

Most indoor ranges have adequate ventilation systems, so that this doesn't happen. I have shot in many different indoor ranges throughout my adult life. I have never been concerned about this problem. It is sad that this range didn't have a good ventilation system.

To battle human trafficking, district attorney asks City Commission to regulate local massage industry

I have been going to a true massage therapist for many years. She is more qualified than any I know, with many hours of training beyond what is required to be a therapist. She and I have discussed this problem many times. I believe legitimate massage therapists should be certified and licensed, so that someday medicare would pay for their therapeutic services. It would also slow down prostitution and sex trafficking using massage parlors as a front. I hope this goes forward and not only city but state licenses are required.

Letter to the editor: Be respectful

Well said, and I agree. The city commission should never have caved in to these rude people, and their demands. They should have been removed, and if necessary arrested, for their "sit in" . I am no racist either, I wouldn't care if the people were purple, they were just plain wrong.

Letter to the editor: Rethink KU priorities

Taking money from the Fire & Rescue Training Institute, if it trains first responders, is just plain stupid. We depend on these people to save lives, perhaps our own. I am sure the people at KU depend on them, too.
