School board member Kristie Adair resigns, criticizes board over technology, ethical issues

And you're believing Kristie Adair...why??? You apparently haven't been paying attention.

Lawrence's Sen. Francisco reframing the gun debate

Personally, I would have preferred that the classroom door quickly be locked and barricaded, and that students and teachers took cover.

By the way, did you know that the shooter was wearing a bulletproof vest? That alone would have seriously reduced the likelihood that "a good guy with a gun" could have stopped him.

Letter to the editor: Not bullying

I agree with Randolf completely.

BLM-LFK has NOT behaved in an effective manner that emphasizes the issues and problems of racism and racist behavior. Rather, they seem to be all about themselves.

That boycott actually listed businesses on the boycott list who had never HEARD about any request for letters of support (assuming there was such a general request), much less been contacted directly by BLM-LFK. That says LOTS about BLM-LFK...nothing good...and nothing about the businesses listed on the boycott list. Frankly, when I learned this, I decided to not bother even considering boycotting any businesses on that list because BLM-LFK is not trustworthy.

Interestingly, BLM-LFK apparently has STILL not been recognized by the national organization.

Letter to the editor: Brownback ideology

Why on earth do you expect being 29th in spending per student *in the US alone* would result in Kansas students scoring in the top 20th percentile worldwide?

Seems like you have lots of fake expectations.

I absolutely love UNI. They provide awesome service. The staff is fantastic. It's always the first place I think of for my computer needs, be they repairs, products, or replacements. And their prices are more than reasonable!

Check them out. No...check them out FIRST!!! You won't regret it.

Editorial: Water park enthusiasm

For crying out loud. Did the person who wrote this editorial not read anything about the costs involved???

This entire project is *NOT* going to cost $70 million. That figure is only for the whitewater part of the project,

P.S. While Brownback thinks this is great, read what he said about water in eastern Kansas.

Coalition calls for partial reversal of Brownback tax cuts; seeks hike in gasoline tax

What so many people don't realize is that successful businesses do NOT hire workers they don't need. After all, what are these unnecessary workers supposed to do? Sit on their thumbs...and twiddle???
