Two dead after car crash west of Tonganoxie

I met the fellow in Oskaloosa who set up barricades around the accident scene and he said that texting was involved. One would think that people would learn with as much publicity as there has been.

Letter: Party first?

Compromise is the action of both sides giving up some of their demands, not complete capitulation as Scott seems to want.

Secretary of State candidate Schodorf calls for end of 'two-tiered' voting

There are two problems with your logic:

These "illegals", in general, are not competing with the poor Americans. They are taking jobs that our poor will not do.

Secondly, these "illegals" will not try to vote for fear that their status will be discovered and that they will be deported.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital apologizes for erroneous billing letters

We made monthly payments for twelve years. We weren't really aware of what the closing date for our account was and one time we made a payment too early. The next month we got an overdue statement. This was our fault, but the lady that handled our transaction understood what had happened and took the overdue flag off of our account. That was certainly appreciated.

Letter: Unsafe practice

Here again the dog would be in much more danger if driver is rear-ending the car in front. If you are being rear-ended you are being thrown against the seatback and the dog against you. It is with the sudden stop that driver and dog are thrown into the steering wheel.

When you are rear-ended is when the whiplashes occur. Your head is thrown backward where there is no seat back to stop it. About whiplashes, don't let anybody tell you that they completely go away. I still get pain when doing certain things. My whiplash was in 1973.
