Former Senate president mentioned as challenger to Brownback says he's not running

Humm... the amount taken out for my state taxes has dropped since Jan? So, if the numbers continue to improve into next year, then you will be in agreement that the policies are working?

Opponents of drug testing for welfare benefits see it as hassling the poor; Brownback says it will help

I'm conflicted, on one hand I can see why people would want folks tested if they are receiving taxpayer money. But where do you draw the line? Farmers are getting my tax dollars with farm programs. How do we know they don't have a drug problem anymore then someone who needs welfare? How about other business owners who receive taxpayer money for one thing or another? Should they be tested? I don't want my taxpayer money going to feed a drug habits, just not sure this could be done in a just manner. If it's about protecting taxpayers, probably should be all or none.

Governor forms committee to increase recreational, tourism opportunities on Kansas River

"We are having problems with our pheasant and quail populations and this also needs to be addressed across the state.'

Not sure how you address a lack of rain? That is main issue with the current pheasant and quail numbers. Habitat would be second, but the lack of rain is by far the main culprit of the current low populations.

KU chancellor writes that possible state budget cuts would mean loss of at least 38 faculty jobs

What makes you think they are going to cut Faculty positions? Staff are always the ones who are let go to cover these budget cuts. I would bet that every Dean has a faculty member they would rather see cut, but TENURE prevents that!
