Saturday Column: Why do Koch contributions trigger such scorn?

Reason for scorn could be that the Kochs spend vast sums of money to prevent any mitiagating of the disasterous effects of climate change. This is due to there holdings in gas, coal and oil, which are major contributors to the problem. Through their support of ALEC, state legislatures have passed stand your ground laws, promoted the privitization of prisons and schools and curtailed the right of women to make their own decisions about health issues. These are not altruistic benefactors, they have a vested self interest in every dollar the spend buying politcians eager to do their dirty work.

States with low income tax have other big revenue sources like gas and oil, tourism or big industry. Kansas doesn't and this will prove disasterous.

Kansas Senate committee votes to repeal renewable energy standards

It is sad to see such short term thinking on the part of legislators. The idea of using alternative energy will serve us well in the future, but unfortuneately these guys, and big oil and gas that they serve, are only interested in now.

Letter: ED change due

Look and see how much Chamber money goes in to city and county commission campaigns. It makes one doubtful that things will change. We need to elect non-chamber candidates.
