Kansans who install solar panels may soon pay higher electric bills

Like the comparison of power grids and health insurance. Auto insurance would be another comparison. If you support KCCs rate structure, does that mean you support ObamaCare?

'No Tyson in Tongie' effort adding supporters by the hundreds

Wow. You certainly do use a lot of stereotypes. Where do you get your information?

Editorial: A plan must precede a tax

FYI folks, page 55 of the draft comprehensive plan defines affordable housing - both owning and renting

Editorial: A plan must precede a tax

David, I had similar thoughts. I just created a simple example to illustrate the dilemma. Does this initiative include rental programs is a good question. I'd like to see some examples of how this money would be used.

It would be a mistake to sterotype the people who need help. There are a lot of good people in Lawrence. Would I be willing to pay for this. Yes, if I can. If I cannot pay the sales tax, then I don't buy. We control the amount we pay.

Opinion: Americans ignorant about U.S.

It wouldn't hurt to check out Hillsdale's course.

Editorial: A plan must precede a tax

We are looking at two sets of information that do not intersect. An affordable home might be $100,000, while a targeted liveable income might be $22,000. The person making $22,000 would not be able to buy or maintain a $100,000 home. To convince voters, the city should pose some likely scenarios that would work.

GOP congressional candidate Soave still not talking about his residency

If other members of the House are registered to vote outside the district they represent, why is Antonio Soave not sharing his residential address? Does Kris Kobach voter registration law come into play?

'No Tyson in Tongie' effort adding supporters by the hundreds

David, The quality of the jobs and the pay are issues. The people who are driving to Kansas City to work are not commuting for chicken feed. Tyson foods is providing jobs that are not needed as much as jobs that pay $40,000 and higher per year. (Emphasis on "higher"). Do you really think we need just any ol' jobs?

Then there's the issue of tax breaks. Why would a company the size of Tyson need tax breaks in Tonganoxie?

Then there's the question of governor Brownback's stealth efforts with a chicken place and a water park. Wouldn't western Kansas benefit more from the economic stimulus? Even then, low pay means no spendable income.

Is real estate so high in Tonganoxie that Tyson needs tax breaks?

Opinion: Climate deniers: Nothing to see here

Significant changes, but changing more rapidly.

I like the expression, "room temperature IQ" . Clever.
