Roberts faces GOP foe in Senate re-election bid

You have to be registered as a republican to vote in the republican primary and you have to do that at least 21 days before an election - before the close of registration.

You can vote in the democrat primary if you are registered as a democrat or non-affiliated.

Democrats sense a chance of defeating Republican Kobach in secretary of state's race

The Supreme Court has ruled that Kris Kobach's AZ law requiring proof of citizenship is illegal. Kobach's Kansas law requiring proof of citizenship should also be challenged. Kansas will be paying for this and all the other unconstitutional laws that this Governor has signed into law.

How many 10's or 100's of thousands is this law costing the state of Kansas, Kansas counties, Kansas citizens? - lawsuits for Kansas; time, letters, postage for counties; filing and paying for documents and additional time required for citizens?

Is it all really worth it for a couple possible cases of voter fraud?

So the number currently in suspense due to lack of proof of citizenship is under 18,000. The 20,000 in suspense include would-be-voters who have incomplete registration forms.

Democrats sense a chance of defeating Republican Kobach in secretary of state's race

Our local county clerk, who sends letters to those who are in suspense, says that they don't believe the letters, as they know that they registered to vote at the DMV and that they weren't told they needed to do anything else. And there are people who hold two or three jobs just trying to keep their lives together, who don't have the time to much of anything else.
Then there are the voting commissioners who don't notify those in suspense.

I believe that most of the 20,000 legal citizens who have been placed in suspense don't realize that they are not actually registered to vote. When they go to the polls and realize that they can't vote - they are going to be furious.

Kansas officials on new health exchange: Be patient

Sounds like the software that Gov Brownback has to transfer 'Proof of Citizenship' from the DMV to the County Clerks office. Lets see, that's been going on for more than 9 months - at a cost of 20,000 citizens on the 'want to be voter list'. Sec of State Kobach says it doesn't matter that all these citizens are denied their most basic right. At least the ACA is working to fix the problem. Oh, never mind, the Tea Party closed the government so Federal workers aren't there to fix it.

Neighbor questions church's use of school

When our church was in the early stages of forming, we used a local school on Sunday mornings for services. I know we had to pay the school district for the use - the cover janitor, utilities, etc.

What does the Affordable Care Act mean for you?

People can only enroll for insurance during the 'open enrollment' period. For this first enrollment - Oct 1, 2013 to Mar 31, 2014. Next year and every year after it will be only 6 weeks - late Oct to early Dec. The exceptions are for a major life event - marriage, divorce, losing a job, etc. Getting sick or having an accident doesn't count. So, if someone does not enroll during the open enrollment, has a car accident that puts them in the hospital for 6 weeks, they are responsible for paying that themselves.
