'Celebrate Freedom Week' approved by House

Since 2005, all public schools, including those in Kansas, have been required by Federal law to teach about the Constitution on September 17, the anniversary of its ratification. Senator Robert Byrd pushed for this and we've been doing it ever since. In fact, in my school, we do take the entire week.

Kobach fighting release of names

Yes, he was elected by the majority of KS voters but those of us who were in the minority and voted against him do still expect him to do his job. And that job doesn't change depending on whether he likes the D or the R at the end of a person's name. If he can't be fair and impartial, he shouldn't have started his own PAC. And if he can't disassociate himself from the candidate that PAC backed, he should recuse himself from situations like this. Oops, I guess that means he should just resign.
