Kansas delegation holds position of making government funding contingent on delaying Obamacare

The Affordable Care Act is the law, and it was deemed constitutional by the supreme court. The republicans are showing grave disrespect for all citizens of this country when they take the entire federal budget as a hostage in order to try and get their way over something they already lost. Disgusting.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital agrees to give $15,000 a year to chamber's economic development fundraising campaign

Does the Chamber consider the negative impact this has on the public's view of their organization, equating to a lowered opinion of downtown businesses in general? I would think that if LMH was giving any money away, it would be to increase the health of those less fortunate with regard to health care, not lining the pockets of downtown shop owners!

Farmers' market

I wish it wasn't so expensive to shop at the farmer's market. People watching their budgets have a hard time affording food like this.

Opinion: Nice guy McLemore must beware frauds who come with fame

Does anyone give these players any financial education before they depart the campus for these high-paying careers? Considering the friends/family who need money, large amount of money involved, taxes, and greedy affiliated industries (agents, financial planners, investment advisors, realtors, lending institutions, etc.), I sure hope so!

McLemore declares for NBA Draft

What I always hope for these players is that they have some kind of financial literacy before they start making the big money, since they'll have some big decisions to make, and since so many people will be trying to get their hands on some of the money. I hope that for the family members, too. I don't know if there are any programs or efforts to help these young players and their families, but you can see in a case like this where it could have a big benefit.

Editorial: Prayer, politics

I'm never very impressed when Christians judge others as if they judging were GOD. It gives Christianity a bad name. Glad to know this wasn't a mainstream group.

Fritzel breaks silence on proposed Rock Chalk Park deal, says he won't profit from the KU sports complex

Yes. It's not incompatible to love your community and make some money in the process. It's a win-win, right? It might sound sarcastic, but I'm serious. I imagine that many developers see themselves as people helping the community, and in many cases the development IS good for the community. And they have to earn a living too, unless they're at the point of philanthropy.
