No worries....the report is "100 percent not sure"!! What a joke!

Senate panel begins debate on bill to reverse some of Brownback's tax cuts; governor objects

"There is no good reason why businesses, who have dodged paying taxes for a number of years, should start paying their share." ....Mr. Bloss, I certainly do hope you intended that sentence to read '......should NOT start paying their share.'? If so, I adamantly agree with your comment!

Editorial: Governor failing Kansans

....and don't forget, Brownback is a huge proponent for the privatization of our schools (charter).

Editorial: Better numbers

At least, that is what they are telling us..... I don't trust any news or numbers coming out of our Statehouse. Brownback and his cronies have not been what you would call, transparent.

A conversation with the community's new economic development leader

I have to ask the question; was Mr. Kelly, " the deputy secretary of the Kansas Department of Commerce and director of business and community development for the agency. ...and many aviation deals in Wichita.", instrumental in the Boeing fiasco several years ago? That was quite a flop! If my memory serves me correctly, which it may not, wasn't this after large incentives were offered by the State?

Editorial: New incentives policy is risky

"It’s difficult to place uniform standards on every development project because every development project offers a unique set of benefits and risks to the city." This is EXACTLY the reason this policy needs to be in place. There is absolutely no reason the City should not have developers provide all of these requirements for proper due diligences. They have proven to be found necessary due to failures by both the City and developers over the past 15-16 years. It is time to put the onerous on the developers, and provide the City with the proper tools to make an informed decision.

School board abruptly adjourns meeting after audience disruption; police called

Could this group have handled this differently, yes, and they should have; however, I am appalled at what was brought to light. Their message was very clear and truthful in all aspects. Just why is the district covering for this teacher and allowing him to carry on his rhetoric and racist tendencies to other schools and children. It makes me sick to my stomach that there are still people among us who feel the need to think, act, and promote superiority to another race based on the color of their skin!

Local developer awarded millions in incentives tied to companies that owe years of back taxes

I could not disagree more, Carol. Past decisions were NOT based on the will of the people, but on the will of the few.....the few, including that of our past City Manager. The few that have been in bed with the developers who have been ram-rodding this city for the past 15 years. It is quite evident to me, or extremely coincidental that all of these findings have been coming to light on the heels of our new City Manager, Mr. Markus. Finally, this city has a manager that chooses to be on the side of "right", rather than "wrong". Let's hope he doesn't get so discouraged that he decides to close the lid on this Pandora's Box!
