Kansas lawmakers call for reform after secrecy story breaks

Roaches always prefer the safety of working in the darkness and tend to scatter when you turn on the light..

Cost of protesting at the Kansas Capitol going way up

Well, first you pay for full time state employees that do the setup and then you pay Brownbackistan for an occasional use of these state employees time,.....no doubt time away from enjoying a safe paycheck from BOB THE ONLY TAXPAYER while doing what other deeds in their off time ?

The Capitol Building should be the People's House........... but it has become a den of fee collecting Republican roaches........and the dimmer the light.......the dimmer the whitt of their political supporters.........the better they like it !

With that kind of legislative thinking it won't be long before they start charging you to elect them in advance at the voting booth before you get to vote......... they already do that after they get elected so why not charge you before their elections ?

Democrat tries forcing Trump voter panel to provide records

It occurred to me that most types of roaches prefer to operate in the dark.........especially when they are the political type of flying roach from Kansas .

We see that, here in Kansas..... and Kansas has exported its' top political flying roaches to the TrumpHouse, in Swampington, D.C. ( District of Collusion ) .

Sooner or later Trump will figure out that Koback can't deliver on his 3,000,000 popular voter fraud claims and Kobachs' name will be the next to be add to the list of those roach like footsteps leaving the TRUMPHOUSE VIA UNDER THE BUS, for somewhere else, as roaches will flee a garbage can, that has had its' lid lifted up .

Kobach reasons ?,.... that for every 42 voters there is one voter fraud ( 126.000.000 Presidential Americans Voters divided by his alleged 3,000,000 false votes = one false vote per 42 votes ) .

It stands to reason that this is everywhere,.... so that out of 1,151,671 Ks presidential voters there might be around 27,420 fraudulent votes .........but you'd think that with his enlarged SOS office staff, that Kobach would have caught thousands and thousands of fake votes in Kansas after the 2016 presidential election !

So,.......where are all of these false voters.......probably under Kobachs bed, behind his closet door, underneath the steps or maybe just as a con....venience in Kobachs mind .

Short notice of city's release of nitrogen-contaminated water raises concerns downstream

I believe that WaterOne has two very large intake pipes that run N to S across KCK from the south shore of the Missouri River, thru which they can draw water from above the junction of the Kansas and Missouri Rivers ( normally water doesn't flow uphill...... without a special reason ) to supply WaterOnes' treatment plant .

I assume but don't know for sure that WaterOnes' Missouri River intake and the twin mains that cross KCK are up and running and not down for scheduled winter maintenance or repair .

We are now entering the winter months when water use might be 50% of peak summer usage or less ( hence we have the 4 / 01 / 18 state deadline to be done with the release to the River )

All of that said, we owed downstream users the courtesy and some advanced notice that they might be using more Missouri River Water at their plant ......which is pretty filthy water.......which might require a different set of chemicals and a different plan to treat for taste and odor issues than normal Kansas river water might require in mid winter .

I am reasonably sure that KCK and KCMO get their water from the Missouri River North or above the Junction of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers .

This is their money, their property and their risk .

Other landlords with no debt can undercut them on rents and consistent college enrollment is not a given thing these days .

An excess of apts. could hold rents down, which is a plus for renters city wide !

Hopefully the city planning for all of this development will be thought through and there won't be any robot garage ideas from questionable vendors who go south in the middle of the project to send everybody scrambling .

I still don't care if they build this or not........ but how about the city figuring out that Crestline and Clinton Pkwy is not a basic 4 way intersection because there is an outer road on the south side of Clinton that goes to parking in the rear of the church and Senior housing behind the church that Ts with Crestline just south of Clinton that is way too close to the standard signaled intersection stop lights at Crestline and Clinton, which blocks the outer road entrance and exit of of Crestline with standing cars during busy times .

Somebody somewhere has handled this type of intersection plenty of times before with a better stop light setup and it sounds as if more cars are coming and this will only get worse .

I don't care if they build this or not but it would be nice if they solve the problem caused by daycare employees parking on the east side of Crestline making it into a one lane street already during daycare business hours,..... that can't handle another 200 cars + coming or going during daycare business hours .

Sooner or later the tenants that will be here are going to want the city bus that often stands at 25th st and Melrose and on 24th terr between Crestline and Melrose blocking half of two 2 lane streets to do the same here .

How about a plan for an indented pull over lane for this site where a bus could stand without blocking 1/2 the street as they do dangerously above or create the hazard of the departing pedestrian who just steps into a narrowed road unseen from the front end of a bus by drivers going around it

I don't care if they build this or not but i do care about whether the area drainage systems can handle all of the additional water runoff during storms that all of these concrete lots and roofs will be instantly producing as north bound run off that used to be held back by tall grass .

Informational meeting planned on saltwater injection wells in Douglas County

BTW,...MIT has developed a new electric storage battery that can be scaled up to store solar and wind energy cheaply for long periods of time that could probably store excess power plant produced electricity, as needed, as well .

Now why would we do that when we could be out poisoning the aquifers ?


Fixing things that are broken always requires the intent to do something that is productive .

Informational meeting planned on saltwater injection wells in Douglas County


It is not just earthquakes that are the danger in these oil drilling reinjection wells .

If they pollute an aquifer and you own a farm above it that gets its' water from a well ( even if it is pumped from a rural water districts well ) and they pollute your aquifer the value of your land is basically destroyed for practical use as a farm or residence .

Maybe you could turn it into a toxic waist dump because oil production injected brine water that leaks back up to the surface contains toxins and salt and the salt all by itself will kill trees and plants .

Yes, I imagine that a 5.6 could severely damage the really old brick buildings downtown but that is small, in comparison, to being able to lay waist to farm land all over the county or in many Ks counties .
