Opponents of drug testing for welfare benefits see it as hassling the poor; Brownback says it will help

If the goverment won't make it mandatory for random drug screens then they should give an extra benefit for people to volunteer to give a urine sample. Ex: a small bonus check at the end of the year for neg drug screens. or an extra $5 bucks a month... Then that narrows down the more suspicious people.

New towing policy has addressed overcharging concerns, county official says

I have lived in multiple states from Maine to Florida to here in Kansas. $100-150 sounds about the average tow. ($1,000!! Now that's just taking advantage of people and I am glad that has been fixed) Let's take a minute to discuss the reasons to be towed: Parking violations, car broke down, accident, abandoned car... the list could go on. These examples all warrent a price tag to take care of. The time, proper insurance coverage to protect the tow truck, the car in tow, and the people who are being transported in the tow truck, mileage, and the car may have to stay with the tow company. If the car has to stay in their lot, I think that it should be covered in the $150 but I think they do charge per day on top of towing. $150 is a lot of money but its for a service, you can op out of being towed and pay the fine, but that goes to the goverment when it coulf go to a small business. You have a choice you decide.

So if I'm an A&TT member, the money that I thought went to my cell phone plan is actually going to help fund Brownback's campaign?! That's just great....SMH

Victim seeks legislative help to strengthen Kansas anti-stalking law

I'm in favor of this BILL, I volunteer at a women's shelter and I know that this is long over due. Although a piece of paper isn't going to stop a bullet or a fist, it may lower the rate of stalking and I pray the rate of domestic abuse declines..

Are fathers more involved in daily family life today than when you were young?

I voted and my vote never showed up.. Yes, I've noticed that more fathers are stepping up to the "Mr. Mom" role. I'm not sure if it's because in the past years it was mostly men who lost the their jobs during the resession and are staying home with the kiddies, but whatever it is I think its great that fathers are more involved in their famlies lives. KUDOS!

In Lawrence, anti-bullying efforts depend on the school

Can we have cameras put in schools! It may help. In classrooms, bathrooms ect.. Not only for the kids but to protect the teachers from these bullies too. When I was in school I witnessed a petite female teacher punched in the back by a student. I was horrified for her. I really hope the school boards start taking this bullying/ hazing more seriously. What will it take, police in the schools handing out court dates?!
