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.

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???

I think we need to clarify it for Bob :-)

1) We're 27th in spending by student BY STATE.

2) That means we're in the BOTTOM half of spending per student IN THE US.

3) Kansas spends $11,596 per pupil, about $800 below the U.S. average

4) There ARE countries that spend more on education per student than does the US, much less Kansas

5) Bob is wrong.

One person killed in accident along Ninth Street, police say

FYI, the person who died was an old and dear friend of mine...Bruce Coburn, aka B.C. He was a regular at Rick's Place.

Letter to the editor: Pitts out of line

Considering that the cast of "Hamilton" was addressing their remarks to Mike Pence...and that Mike Pence said he was NOT offended...I would suggest that Trump really had no say in the matter.

Pence handled the matter graciously and with dignity. Trump could learn a LOT from him. Sadly, I doubt that will happen.

Letter to the editor: Pitts out of line

Liberals throw gays from buildings for being gay???? They burn people alive for not following their ideology??? What on earth are you talking about?

That's like pretending the Pharisees were "liberals"...when it should be obvious to ANYONE who read the Bible that Pharisees were FAR from being "liberal".

Was your post supposed to be snark?

P.S. Science has determined that genetics has a say in determining BOTH liberal and conservative leanings. It's related to having a specific variant of the gene DRD4, which is involved in our risk taking and decision making processes.
