Attempt to override tax veto falls 3 votes short in Senate; little consensus on what comes next

The Republican leadership of Denning and Wagle just failed Kansas, again. In their newspaper quotes they speak about how bad the Brownback budget is, and how they have to drop the LLC tax exemption to retain K-12 funding. But then they both did NOT vote to overturn the veto. Hypocrites and failed leadership in the Kansas Senate!

Opinion: Hollywood elitists out of touch with reality

I don't agree at all. Cal Thomas is as out of touch as any hollywood "elite". Much more so if he thinks people don't use swear words. If he can't stand to watch a realistic movie all the way through, he should not be able to vote for the award. He sounds just like the old man that lives next door that hates everything and is stuck in his life 30 years ago. Why does he care so much what Hollywood actors say? Is he jealous that they get to speak publicly and voice their opinion like he does?

KU Memorial Union proposes $45 million renovation; students will vote on whether to fund it

The removal of the Jaybowl was not desired, but was required due to the annual expenses to maintain the facility with no increased funding in sight. The "bland" location now would be changed with a renovation to a more usable space. The Jaybowl area cannot be brought up to fire codes without a renovation or creating new exits. Although it seems like there are renovations all the time, it is piecemeal. A major renovation would allow the Union to address that and make much more usable spaces for today's campus needs.

KU Memorial Union proposes $45 million renovation; students will vote on whether to fund it

The owner of the corporation are the students, faculty and alumni of the University. That is who makes up the corporation's board of directors. The building belongs to the University of Kansas although the funds used to construct it were corporation funds. There is nothing hidden when it comes to public records relating to the Union operation. Staff receive salaries or hourly wages and normal health, retirement and leave benefits offered by many companies. Often the benefits are not as good as that offered by the State of Kansas. All income is kept on campus to offer services and maintain an almost 100 year old structure that serves almost 2 million people a year.

Some elderly Kansans losing in-home services

Thanks for nothing Governor Brownback and the Kansas Republican party!

Take a elderly person to the polls in November and tell them who is cutting these services!
