Martin Miller, awaiting retrial of 2004 murder case, bonds out of jail

It happens more frequently than one would think, even with inmates on death row. Sometimes the parties have never met in person and sometimes only through prison non-contact visits. My son who has been incarcerated for some time and is not getting out any time soon got married to someone he knew in high school on the phone with the chaplain on a 3-way call. She is a college graduate with a professional career. I'm not sure I understand it either but it

It was an accidental shooting. Alcohol and guns are not a good combination.

Good grief. The kids are out playing in the snow today!!! They'll be fine at school tomorrow and I'm sure they won't go outside for recess.

Farther to reach but more help to offer: New homeless shelter marks one year

So, Clark, what do you suggest should happen to the people who haven't lived here for 3 years? We pay for services for University students and they aren't residents. I'm just glad we have a place to serve people adequately.

Couple's deteriorating health preceded alleged shooting death of wife

We must be talking about different programs because the for the people I know, it pays everything, and it pays for them to go to an adult day program including transportation. This is people on Medicaid. For those who don't qualify for Medicaid, it is private pay, I believe.

Medicaid pays for in home care and supports through agencies like Trinity, Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging, Independence, Inc. Surely they had a case manager or social worker who could have helped them negotiate that. I have helped several people access those services.

The hard way: Firebirds take the football, City Showdown from Lions

In the grand scheme of things, I would be thankful for shredded paper, toilet paper, or any other harmless prank. Some of the things I heard, now that I'm no longer affiliated with the school, are painting the firebirds on the field red, burning LHS into the turf, etc. Thankfully common sense prevailed and only some shredded paper was dumped in the stands.

In the 16 years of the rivalry, I've seen some really creative pranks and some that were harmful and hurtful. Not sure what the "vandalism" included on Thursday night, but hopefully it was just as harmless as shredded paper.
