KBA paying ex-CEO Thornton's legal fees

I don't think it's all that uncommon for organizations or companies to pay the legal fees for their top execs if it's related to their employment. If the KBA bylaws call for it, why is the AP trying to make it an issue?

Kansas ag secretary blasts KBA board of directors

Well, Rodman and Brownback have to blame someone since they were the ones dictating the scope of the audit. If they didn't like the results, they have no one to look to but themselves.

Audit criticizes Kansas Bioscience Authority, leader

I have not read the audit but based on this article, Wow, it cost close to a million dollars to conduct an audit demanded by the Governor and Wagle that found $4,679.88 in over payments to Tom Thornton and he erased his computer? That's it? Sounds to me like the KBA is handling their money very well. And yet, Brownback doesn't think that's the way we do business in Kansas? Huh?

Two women treated at LMH after accident at McDonald Drive and Princeton Boulevard

If any of my family is ever in an injury accident, I hope they send as many firetrucks, emts, chiefs, firefighters and anyone else they deem necessary and I really don't care how long people have to wait to get around the accident. No one in this town is more important than someone who is injured in an accident.

How many people know your personal password other than you?

I love LastPass. I have it on my computers, my ipad and my android phone.

Injury accidents gnarl traffic on three highways

I'm a little confused because the article says "The report states neither patient was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident" and yet there is a helmet clearly in the picture next to the man being attended by the EMT's. I realize it could have flown off the motorcycle in the collision but it seems odd that it ended up so close to the driver.

Meetings scheduled to address closure of Lawrence's SRS office; Brownback administration remains mum

And I don't care what you have to say but I'm forced to see them. At least I can choose to go see Dr. Harder; unfortunately, I can't do anything about your posts but try to ignore them.

Meetings scheduled to address closure of Lawrence's SRS office; Brownback administration remains mum

You notice how he always releases another cut to the least who can afford it on a Friday so he can go back under his rock until Monday and hope nobody will remember what he did. What a coward.

City Commission tells downtown car show organizers to rethink plans

Set 'Em Up Jacks has a car show each month during the summer that is well attended. Maybe the organizers could approach them about another one in October. I'm sure the restaurants there would appreciate the business.

Kansas Arts Commission supporters fear Brownback will veto funding

thepianoman says: "Trust me, the folks who are involved with "the arts" are simply put, "elitists." To this segment of society, it's all about money, status and snobery. Let these rich folks fund the arts. This is their hobby! They love it."

Why should I trust you? I don't know you. And your comment sounds like you are the elitist that caters to the rich folks. The scholarships that the Lawrence Arts Center provides for the children that otherwise may not be able to attend classes and events are not provided entirely by "elitists". They are also provided by some of us working class folks who think all children should have an opportunity to explore the arts. But I don't think we should have to carry the entire burden and therefore the minimal amount of money funding the Arts Commission is important.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid King Sam will have his way. He doesn't really care about anyone.
