Extinguish. Explotation. Systematic abuse.

I had no idea missionaries were so hateful.

Banner featuring Shawnee Mission North Indian mascot taken down at Lawrence High School

Lawrence liberals are so desperate to look for something to hurt your feelings, you ignore historical fact and perspective.

Where do you people think the name Shawnee Mission comes from? It is quite literal.

In 1830, Methodists established a mission for the relocated Shawnee Tribe.

To keep things in historical perspective, that is 25 years before Lawrence was founded, and 57 years years before Haskell Institute existed.

The Mission is only a mile from SMNHS.

Its four buildings and surrounding grounds are on the US Register of Historical Places, and a National Historical Landmark. It was built by Rev. Thomas Johnson, for whom the county is named for.

It was once the capitol of Kansas, before Lecompton. Before the mission closed in 1862 (Kansas became a state in 1865) it also was a boarding and training school for the Shawnee and Delaware.

The Shawnee Methodist Mission is a favorite for school field trips, and full of history. For those that want to actually learn history. Maybe, Madison McKinney and Bill DeWitt should visit it and learn something. And yes, even Bobby Nightengale.

There is nothing wrong with the mascot or the name.

Kobach argues for authority to split elections to enforce citizenship rule, claims as many as 18,000 noncitizens on voter rolls

Secretary Kobach was reelected with over half a million votes from 60% of voters.

It is funny that you think over 500,000 people are addled because they disagree with you.

You can not be taken seriously.

Bernie Sanders to speak at Kansas Democratic Party convention Feb. 25

I guess Madonna and Ashley Judd were not available.

This is terrific news for Kansas Republicans.

The democrats bringing in a socialist to put the face on the party is perfect. In fact Republicans might be willing to pay the expenses of Sanders visiting.

He will be able to speak without protests, broken windows, fire bombs, and people blocking the street, by people wearing masks to hide their identity. The typical instigators will be inside listening, looking at Sanders with puppy dog eyes.

How ironic that democrats will have to pay to listen to Sanders talk about handing out free stuff.

Kansas democrats are unable to win any political office above the local level now. Yet, they bring in a far leftist to put on display and rally the troops.

Kerry Gooch is the present to Kansas Republicans that just keeps on giving.

Of course Kobach isn't the "worst AG in the country" as he isn't even the Attorney General.

He is the Secretary of State.

Pence breaks tie as Senate confirms DeVos for Education post

Yet another ridiculous statement from you Dottie.

I guess USD 497 will be buying Amway cleaning products now with that thinking.

Get serious.

Senate panel begins debate on bill to reverse some of Brownback's tax cuts; governor objects

All retirees dont pay taxes.

KPERS retirees don't pay taxes on their benefit.

So retired teachers are not paying their share to support schools.
