Lawrence in path of major ice storm this weekend; travel discouraged

Not when the predicted HIGHS even from the Weather Channel are in the mid 20s. That's not overhype. I lived through the ice storm in '96. We were without power or heat for three days. We were able to manually light the gas kitchen stove and oven and we huddled in there for warmth. Good luck.

Kansas conservative think tank launching its own news service

Fascist governments ALWAYS create their own propaganda machines. Goebbels would be proud.

Dakota Access CEO: Company committed to finishing pipeline

So what they are saying is that they don't give a damn about how people feel about it or what impact it may have on the environment, they're going to cram it down the throats of people anyway and they will use imminent domain to make SURE it gets built.
My language at this point isn't fit for public consumption.

Kobach defends voting laws in light of primary results; also defends acting as Trump surrogate

He says that the primary was proof that his laws don't restrict voters. He doesn't mention that a week or so before the primary a Federal judge forced him to register over 10,000 voters he had "suspended".

Editorial: Enough cuts

Dems are highly known for knowing that to make money, you have to spend money.

KU announces cuts to public radio, geological survey and other programs; more cuts on the way

My son just graduated with a two year degree from a college in Oklahoma. In choosing a university to which he would transfer, he bypassed KU almost immediately, despite the fact that he could get instate tuition. Instead, he is going to Portland State University in Oregon. <br>
It is the truth that people go to a university for much more than just an education. The very quality of the institution and the opportunities for networking within a chosen field are just as important, if not more so, then the base quality of the education obtained.<br>
In the years that I was growing up and in my younger adulthood, KU had a stellar reputation nationally, evidenced by it's plebeian nicknames of "Harvard on the Kaw" and "Athens on the Plains". Those days are past. <br>
Brownback has done more than just destroy primary and secondary education in the state, he's also destroyed it's institutions of higher education. They may never come back.<br>
The grand old man on the hill is now shaky and trembling. Its museums and halls echo with past grandeur. But the thick coat of dust is there. <br>

A look at the races that could change the balance of power at the Statehouse

It's kind of disheartening not to see Mary Pilcher-Cook's name on this list. I desperately want to see that Marsha Blackburn/ Diane Black wannabe GONE. She has a strong opponent in Vicki Hiatt. Darn it, Shawnee, toss that moron out. Let her go lip curl somewhere else.

Editorial: Human costs

When Sam Brownback first became governor, he did so on a "prolife" platform. I think we can now all agree that he's about as "prolife" as Idi Amin.

Kansas abandons plan to block Planned Parenthood providers from Medicaid funds

They're still trying to cut Medicaid funding to regional affiliates. That won't wash either. If Kansas pushes it, the Feds will cut off ALL Medicaid funding to the state. The state is precarious enough. Do they REALLY think they will be able to get away with that happening? (Although they would dearly love to drive the state even further into poverty.)
