Just Food board alleges Farmer overpaid himself by more than $52,000; criminal charges being pursued

Just Food was a great benefit for the needy that had food insecurity and just had hungry families. There are just not a lot of places with the room Just Food has. When a leader runs a non-profit agency, there is not an expectation of getting rich. The "richness" one receives is from helping others. Once in a while we get a greedy person. I am just giving food now. I went to write a check when they were in trouble and almost closing. I did not have very much money, but helped where I could. It angers me that that the small amount of money I ws able to give may of went in his pocketbook, instead of feeding needy people.

Letter: Voting woes

Yes, we don't need any reason for more crack downs. I don't think the concern about voter fraud matched the problem people had getting birth certificates. Though I understand our treasurer was very good at helping people with getting birth certificates in Kansas.

City monitoring concrete cracking at Rock Chalk Park recreation center

It just makes me sad. I hope the city is reimbursed by the contractor for all the repairs and time lost becuase of the cracks and it doesn't come out of the cities money for other things.

Lawrence anti-hunger advocates worried by proposed food stamp cuts

Oh, for pete's sakes "boot strappers" ! My dad used food stamps to help feed me and my 2 sisters when my mother died at a young age. I did not apply for them when my daughter was born, but I was underweight and underfed so that my child could get her formula. Yes, some people do abuse them but decent people need them. SNAPS currently provides $200 dollars per individual, and people that are old and disabled use them to. I thank the people that shared their tax money so I could eat when I was five. By the way, my dad did work.

What website do you use as your homepage?

Mr. HollisBrown, I guess today's topic did not fit well with your egotistical and narcissist-like personality style. Therefore you had to "on-line bully" people you know nothing about to start your self-aggrandizing monologue about topics that have no place in this commentary. I get your attempt at junior-high humor. However, I asked myself if you are you over 21. It sure seems like you are behind in emotional maturity as you wrote a comment similar to what a sixth grader would write. Let us hope the researcher does not make whatever psychotropic drug you currently need or may need in the future.

Former group home workers say employer lied, fired them to save face in abuse case

Lorrie- I imagine you are reading this post. I don't know if you
are pursuing legal action, or if CLO is going to deny your unemployement . Just in case this I hope this helps-Some brave teahers at Ponderosa House reported a silmar situation in the house about 3 years ago. Athough, it was not at all as exteme, the co-supervsior at the house was suspended for throwing a client's food in the trash for punishment and other things. It is sad that you all were afraid to tell, as I know the clients' at the house and I am sad someone did not report earlier. But I was not in your shoes with many children to feed when the incidents happened. the house supervisor at the time had the clients' best interest at heart and the staff would not let this particular employee exact revenge from the workers that reported.
I wish you luck, in finding a job where both employees' and clients' are treated with kindness.
