Lawrence commissioners pleased with main findings of Rock Chalk audit, but some concerns remain

Are you referring to the sign in the Sports Pavilion - in the area with dining tables - that asks visitors not to bring in food or beverage? That seemed rather strange to me considering it is a public facility funded with public money, and considering that sports teams - families with kids - are coming from out of town.

This is how a U.S.-Iran deal is polling among Americans.

Is that how they are reporting it on Fox? Doesn't that sound a little ridiculous to you?

Seeking to prevent divorce, Kansas legislators hold 2 days of hearings on marriage

Alyona, I guess you didn't need the government to make the decisions for you. I'm happy for you.

Follow the money. Married people pay more in taxes (it's called the "marriage penalty") than those same two persons would pay if they were single. Most social services are for single parents. So this administration wants to force people to stay married even if they are unhappy (which isn't always good for the children either, as everyone knows).

If they were truly concerned about the sanctity of marriage and family, they would be focusing their attention on people who are contemplating marriage. Some counseling or a longer waiting period might prevent a few hasty or wrong-headed marriages from taking place.

But that could result in fewer marriages. The goal is to have as many people in marriages as possible: more taxes, fewer social services.

This is a huge overreach. The government has no business here.

Third, to sabotage the deal John Kerry is making with Iran, which would avoid another war (which the U.S. can ill afford).

John Kerry is in the process of finalizing a ten-year deal with Iran. But Netanyahu and the Republicans would rather have war, as long as the U.S. makes the sacrifice.

Brownback touts economic growth for rise in February revenue

How to pay for the roads and schools if not with taxes? Do you have a better idea than with personal income tax? (Remember, Brownback has eliminated corporate income tax. And anyone who is paid in any way that does not involve a W-2 can set themselves up legally to avoid paying income tax in Kansas.)

$25,000 and lots of questions are unanswered.
