Lawmakers question Brownback's allotment cuts

" And he has said KPERS can absorb a temporary cut this year because it has enjoyed much higher than average earnings on its investments in the past year." This is the thinking of legislature after legislature that caused the unfunded liability in the first place.

WOW working on long-distance calling issue

As a follow up, I was able to contact Debra Schmidt at WOW today and feel hopeful that having a local representative work on our telephone issues may result in them being fixed soon. Thanks Journal World for the helpful article.

WOW working on long-distance calling issue

I have been having trouble with WOW's phone service for at least 18 months. I have spent hours on the phone with them explaining the issues. I suspect it is something systemic and will require more than individual fixes, which never seem to last more than a week.

What is the first album you ever remember owning?

I was in the sixth grade. "Song to a Seagull" by Joni Mitchell. I liked the way the cover looked. My dad got me a Pete Fountain and a Herb Albert and the Tijuana Express album the same day.

Making sense of KPERS, 401(k) plans

With a defined benefit plan, the state can get away with offering lower wages, because the employee knows what to expect in retirement.

With a 401(k) defined contribution plan, employees will want higher wages since the returns on their retirement funds are much less certain.

Statehouse Live: Teacher retirements, reductions increase dramatically

How will they be double dipping if they are retired? I'm just not catching your drift.

Lawrence police advise residents to ignore panhandlers

A woman with the same story approached me several months ago at the same Dillons. I took her inside and bought her food. I wondered if her story was true, but decided it didn't really matter. If you are hungry and ask me for food, I'll give you food. I figure hunger is hunger, no matter what the story that is being told.

What is the most you've ever paid for a car?

Don't remember the most, but the least I paid was $42.50. I drove that car for several years before I sold it and went back on foot.
