State report shows safety, security problems in sexual predator treatment program

My former work put me in meetings where these issues at Larned were being discussed and solutions explored. This is not about the SO program as much as it is about the entire facility. No department there is properly staffed. Extreme overtime hours are being worked all over the facility. The whole thing is a nightmare of downward spiraling morale due to constant overtime and low pay for state workers. What's also on the rise: Critical incidents. They don't pay enough, so they can't hire workers away from private industry jobs in towns that don't suck to live in. The result is 1) not enough workers, 2) poorly qualified workers (the kind that slap people around) and runaway morale issues.

This is easy to fix... WITH MONEY. But our governor's policies only help the rich. The rest of us are on our own: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ldrV...

Lawrence Public Library selected for "Super Wi-Fi" pilot

But wasn't one of the biggest failures with FreeNet/Wicked that while the transmission antennas had ample transmission power, the average home WIFI or laptop DIDN'T have the needed power to transmit BACK to the FreeNet antenna? If the library's antenna can't receive a little signal coming from my home, then I don't have a connection, correct?

Someone correct me if this is wrong, but isn't this why FreeNet customers had so many issues?

Two convenience stores coming to downtown Lawrence

A 24/7 store downtown? I hope there's room in there for a police substation.

Thatcher had ties to Douglas County

OK, today I'm going to be "that guy":

"used to attend the chapel, which her father, Alfred Williams, preached at."

preached AT? Come on, man. My grasp of the language isn't the best, but I know this is a faux pas. Something to do with prepositions and such.

Lawrence resident pleads guilty to organizing $16M drug trafficking ring

Laundering money is really hard. The banks will flag any suspicious activity, such as a 4 booth tanning salon raking in $36K a month. Anyone at the bank who saw that would point it out to a supervisor.

Lawrence resident pleads guilty to organizing $16M drug trafficking ring

I gotta say: Why are you SO enraged by the reporting, but not enraged by the crime? Your "shame on you" seems misdirected.

Driver crashes into house after losing control of vehicle on K-10

Buckjennings rejects all excuses. If he had a seizure, then he should have had one in such a way that he could maintain control of his truck!!

The roads were clear by noon. The grass would have been slick.

You are a judgmental person.
