Kansas would have fewer school districts under new proposal

Now, start consolidating counties. Silly to have 105. Many counties in the state have suffered such severe population decline that it's questionable whether they'll even have enough qualified people to run basic functions of government, like roads, courts, and schools.

Report: Kansas residents buy groceries out of state due to food tax

"But food sale losses on a per-capita basis hit less populated border counties the hardest — especially Greeley, Pottawatomie and Comanche counties..."

Greeley County: 68.3% voted for Brownback.
Pottawatomie County: 61.7% voted for Brownback.
Comanche County: 69.9% voted for Brownback.

Just sayin'

Attendance way down at Lawrence ice skating rink in its second season

The rink is a failed experiment. People don't "skate" on it - they clomp around a bit till they realize it's stupid, then never come back. The city would be better off waxing it and letting people slide around in their socks.
Helena, Montana, has a real ice outdoor rink - skates are free to use, and there's a dollar use fee (50 cents for kids). That rink sees some use !
Admit it's a failure, and go back to flooding the basketball court by the pool when it gets cold enough.

City seeks more than $500,000 from Oread group after audit finds possible violations of state sales tax law

Cancel the special tax district for the Oread ! It has been deliberately misused and abused and that should be grounds enough for the city to dissolve that special taxing agreement.

‘Run, hide, fight’ and other things to know in case of an active shooter at KU

Bear in mind the following:

I attended one of these types of presentations, and asked the police chief what the responding officer's actions would be if they saw, as I put it, "freelance responders" with guns, shooting as well. His matter-of-fact response ? "We'll shoot them, too."

Letter: Total truth

Different topic, same old drivel from Carl. Doesn't matter what the subject is, be it computers in the school, the legislature, or aliens from space, ol' Carl has a rambling letter filled with random Bible quotes read.

Journal-World, don't you have ANY other letters to the editor to print instead ? Something useful ? Helpful ? Or maybe you keep a stack of these handy to plug an empty space.... it's certainly "filler."
