LMH's planned behavioral health stabilization center hits state roadblock

re: Schum's Palace.
Will you look at that. A whole one-bedroom as low income housing. Wow. I'm underwhelmed.

re: LMH.
IMHO, I think the behavioral health stabilization center is on hold because people at the state level aren't going to make any money off of it. Also, the project is innovative, forward-looking, and in Lawrence, hence the State (aka, The Guv, et al) doesn't like it. ergo, it will be a cold day before it comes to pass.

Lawrence leaders asked to reconsider policy after primary election costs the city $40,000

The Rep and Dem primary rules are determined by the respective parties. That's why there are separate ballots and you need to declare a party before you can vote.

The Reps must declare between 2 and 4 weeks before the primary. That's so they can make sure you're properly gerymandered.

The Dems can usually declare at the polling place.

I do agree that a non-partisan local election doesn't need a primary; however, having no primary could result in the need for a run-off election. 6 of one, or half-a-dozen of the other; pay at the front or at the end.

White nationalist posters found on Kansas State campus

I'll disregard Bob Summers' knee-jerk hot key comment. (How many do you have now?)

@Brock. Read the fine print on the poster. The websites referenced are white-supremacist websites; you can't deny that. Hence, the obvious and logical connection is that the posters at K-State are white-supremacist posters. In fact, I would be surprised if the posters hadn't even been paid for by the websites or their owners.

Don't try and talk your way around, or normalize the elephant in the room (like #45 does on a daily basis), because you can't.

Lawrence City Commission to review incentives request for downtown grocery store

North Lawrence is growing and is still a food desert.

It will be several years before the fighting over the apartment complex / grocery / pharmacy / etc will be done, at which point another piece of the Great Wall of Compton will be built.

Why can't part of the Tanger Mall be repurposed or a next grocery built in the lot to the south of the Mall? North Lawrence would then no longer be a food desert.

Local grocery store to highlight power of solar by installing nearly 700 solar panels

I'm looking forwards to seeing the project's completion.
There should be a live feed to a monitor inside the store so people can see how much has been saved.

The Topeka VA has such a feed need the elevators just past the front door on Gage Blvd.

Kobach had duty to publicize new voting schedule; it appears that he didn't

Who really believes that KKK would do anything at all to facilitate voting?

Bill Snyder commends Scott Frantz's decision to announce he's gay

Oh look, there's another B.S. comment from one of our favorite posters with obviously a lot of repressed tendencies.

Comments like yours above are one reason people are afraid being who they actually are. It's a pity you feel that way as I'm sure you yourself would be much happier if you could just admit things to yourself, lose 400 pounds and come out of your mother's basement into the sunlight. Oh well.

It is a magical moment as a man, much more brave than you obviously are, stood up and said, "This is who I am."

Kudos to Coach Snyder and the KSU football team for supporting him.

20 GOP lawmakers from Kansas attending ALEC convention

I agree, Steve Hicks is spot on with his assessment.

I suggest the headline be changed to read something on the order of, "KS legislators summoned to ALEC in Colorado to receive camera ready copies of state legislation." It will be noted who does and does not attend when summoned.

@Richard: That is a good question. Who is going and who is paying their way?
