A Thousand Voices: Respondents mostly support banning the Confederate flag from school grounds

The Confederate battle flag was never the official flag of the Confederacy.

The Confederate States of America went through three different flags during the Civil War, but the battle flag wasn’t one of them. Instead, the flag that most people associate with the Confederacy was the battle flag of Gen. Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia.

Designed by the Confederate politician William Porcher Miles, the flag was rejected for use as the Confederacy’s official emblem, although it was incorporated into the two later flags as a canton. It only came to be the flag most prominently associated with the Confederacy after the South lost the war.

Sounds like a slot machine, aka a "one armed bandit" to me.

Women's wear 'distracts' state lawmakers

Maybe the Westboro Baptist Church can picket about this. They seem to be remarkably adept at finding something to picket about in just about any situation.

Leasing parking from KU not an option for HERE @ Kansas developers; City Commission set to vote on issue today

In a previous column about this subject, I did exactly that. It is true that there is more than one supplier, but it's also clear that there are less than four in the United States. But even if one of the suppliers is able to supply a workable system, it's not going to be architecturally compatible with the structure being built, and it's too late to make the major changes that would be required to make it so.

But that is going round and around the basic problem - this technology is so new that there are no standards for installation.

HERE @ Kansas seeks permission to fill apartments without required number of parking spaces

Solution: Email Nick Gerik, Digital Editor, Lawrence Journal-World, at: ngerik@ljworld.com, explain the problem to him, and he can fix it. Retroactively, too!

He's not able to keep an eye on all of the comments, so he is likely to be unaware of the problem until a commenter points it out to him.

In my case, my name disappeared after I had made changes to my home page. Not sure why, but I had the same issue some time ago.

Simple. Their limo drivers will drop them off, and pick them up when they're ready to leave.

You bet they won't all have cars. Lots of them will have pickups, SUVs, and vans. <br>
And quite a few are likely to have motorcycles, too.
