Editorial: True facts

Audit all of the money that Topeka handles to find out how it has been spent or stolen !!!

If Gov Brownback were a republican I could have voted for him. However realizing this man has not been a republican and is not a republican allowed this household to support Paul Davis and vote no on Sam Brownback.

Lawrence teachers, along with others in state, face tough decisions after KPERS rules changes

We must ask ourselves why in the hell does American Legislative Exchange Council inspired corporate America want to own government programs that they spend so much time and money convincing we taxpayers our great programs are evil and do not work?

BIG PROFITS inspired with our tax dollars. Of course taxes will increase once the corporate giants take over to cover the cost of campaign donations, obscene CEO wages,bonus packages,golden parachutes and medical coverage for the rest of their lives.

Fraternity antics; alleged drug-toting bicyclist escapes police; why wasn't apparently drunken truck passenger arrested?; auto buglaries in Pinkney, Old West Lawrence neighborhoods

What kind of art would you like to see in the East Ninth Street project?

Tons of of local artists represented. Beautiful non toxic landscaping all along the way cuz we know beautiful landscaping can be art as well.

Fix the streets and widen sidewalks a bit. Provide protected bike travel as well. Keep the crosswalks painted. Design all to be attractive.

It seems to me that this area has been paying taxes for one hundred years or more that there should be no need to increase taxes.

Just don't allow any changes in the neighborhood that will inflate their property values thus inflating their property taxes. This too would be a work of art.

Local art mixed with seasonal blooms and lots of green will attract visitors and townies alike.

it's likely not against the law to insult police officers and bystanders. Our block once had a neighbor and friends who were very rude to police officers numerous times and in general were quite a nuisance among other things. Yet officers did not arrest the culprits for such activity.

Everybody has rights and not all behavior is necessarily against the law so it was explained. I speculated the culprits had learned about the laws.

Verbal threats however might be another story.

Kansas governor won't be present for budget announcement

"Hawley declined to discuss the governor's planned whereabouts."

Such arrogance that an employee of taxpayers feels taxpayers have no business knowing why he is not on the job.
