Finally, one small spot of sense coming out of our state government.

Bumps ahead for 'Obamacare' repeal as Americans air worries

Good. It barely passed the House where there's over 45 more Republicans. It's not going to pass the Senate's slim Republican majority as is and may not pass at all. Good.

Kansas City airport stops paper screening policy

Even with the higher number of security gates at KCI over a regular airport, this must have been a nightmare. I know people who travel with stuffed briefcases full of paper and files, travel information, receipts. It must have been taking forever to pull all that out. I get flustered enough trying to get my laptop in and out of my bag!

Joyful House Republicans vote to repeal reviled 'Obamacare'

It's never going to pass the senate as is and the changes they make will be rejected by the house. I was depressed until I realized that. And, I'm really hoping the Democrats just harp on this mess constantly, how many people will lose coverage or end up paying skyrocketing rates in states like ours for pre-existing conditions, until it's time to vote and the Republicans lose a bunch of seats. Unlike the ACA, which took bipartisan effort to pass, this mess had no input from Democrats and when it screws people, it's all on Republicans' heads.

Old church with new name to build multimillion dollar project in southwest Lawrence

I use both Google Chrome and Firefox. I get popups and redirects with both. It's very annoying. I'm using Chrome right now and, sure enough, an ad opened in a second window when I clicked on this article.

WOW internet service being restored after 4-plus-hour outage

I've had tv all day but Internet is down. Figured it was my obsolete modem. Glad to know it's not just me but I hope they get it fixed soon. Typing on my phone is a pain.

Editorial: Extra safe K-10

I'm just amused by the "assumption" that the reason people are trying to cross K10 or turn left is ignorance of the change (or maybe they can't read?). The signs and poles already there are quite obviously directing you to turn right only What this is, is KDOT using that excuse, ignorance, to justify the mess to begin with. More signs aren't going to do squat. Ticked off people are still going to try to cross and turn left if they think they can get away with it.

Discussion of more signs for Kasold-SLT intersection on tap; thoughts of a Crossgate Drive interchange for the SLT

How about a frickin' interchange at Kasold which is already extended to K10 and forget about Crossgate which isn't! Sheesh!

Oh, and if people are going to ignore the poles blocking left turns and the straight across, does anyone really think some more signs are going to matter?

While it's dangerous during the day, at 9:05 last night when I turned right off Kasold onto K10 there was one car way far east and one car way far west. I could have easily crossed or turned left. There was very little traffic on K10 until the Clinton Pkwy interchange and that was game traffic.

They should never have built this as two lanes with a stoplight and at level crossings! Now they're stuck with no money to do anything. Yet they spent I don't know how much for the 15th street interchange and I hardly ever see anyone using it. However, before they mucked with Kasold, it was rare to see less than seven or eight cars crossing over or turning left or right at any time during the day and often at night, too. And I used it a lot to avoid the many many stoplights on both Iowa and Clinton Parkway to go both south and west of town.

Judge revives Kansas voting citizenship case, sets aside judgment against Kobach

Not surprising. It happens all the time. In fact, in the 20 plus years I've worked in the legal field, with my boss filing several thousand defaults in that time, I've never seen a default judgment upheld when the defendant files a late answer. It doesn't look good on Kobach's part that he did so, though.

Bicycle group latest to raise access concerns about K-10/Kasold Drive intersection

What I don't get is that bicycles want a safe crossing and are stating that if one isn't provided, they'll continue to cross yet cars won't be allowed to cross unless they want to hit the collapsible barriers (which a bicycle will be able to go between, I assume). Yeah, that makes sense.

Okay, then I want a safe crossing for my car as I currently use the Kasold/K10 crossing several times a week to avoid the five stoplights using Iowa St. would take (and they're adding two more as it becomes Highway 59!).
