Local group wants to honor city-owned Underground Railroad site, currently being used for storage

I thought the city used this location for a speed trap. There are always cops just sitting there in their cars.

Editorial: Property tax hike for schools

Just because there has not been a recent change in property taxes is no reason to raise them, and you give no justification for doing so. School funding should be shared by all Kansans, not just a property owner. The plan is a greater tax on single people that own property. Income tax is the only fair way to fund public education.

Kansas lawmaker says he would rather give money to North Korea than to public radio

Yes, this is the same Rep. J.R. Claeys who still has a problem using twitter. The problem is his childish, boorish behavior. A poor representative for people of the State of Kansas.

Letter to the editor: ‘Brought to you by’

I am amazed you have never seen advertising before, or sponsors of news. There is nothing hidden, the LJW states up front that the KU Bookstore is paying for the coverage of the oversea trip. Your attempt to compare this with a chicken restaurant promoting another chicken restaurant isn't even similar. If you did not want to see additional coverage by the LJW on the trip, you did not have to go to the KU Bookstores twitter site.

KU police investigate string of Coke machine crimes

Surely you have lived in Lawrence long enough to know the players. Start at the Chancellor's office, where they want the scholarship and activity funds and will run the vending program by committee, then to the second power agent on campus KU Athletics, who hires a firm to sell the product for them at events. Lastly, the Union which actually sells the product in their operations.

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!
