Brownback issues executive order opposing Syrian refugees relocating to Kansas

You have heard that there are about 20 governors who have made the same executive decision as Brownback, haven't you? He is not alone in wanting to keep terrorist "refugees" out of Kansas. I think it is a good move. There are no methods of vetting in use right now that will single out the ISIS trained Syrians.

Brownback issues executive order opposing Syrian refugees relocating to Kansas

The refugees count among their numbers terrorists. The governor is calling for all the Syrian refugees to be kept out of Kansas, including terrorist group members. There were refugees among the terrorists who died after the killings in Paris last Friday.

Student-led Rock Chalk Invisible Hawk group issues diversity-related demands for KU; here's some more context

They want to increase the numbers of illegal immigrant on on campus? Hmmm don't think so. Do they know the meaning of illegal?

They want to reopen a 45 year old death investigation that has already been settled with a verdict? I don't think so.

Some of their "demands" make sense, but they need to realize that along with what is called "social justice" is the adherence to laws, city, state and federal.

The KU I loved when I lived in Lawrence makes me sad now.

How does Obama's College Scorecard score KU?

Gee, who really cares where Obama's "scorecard"" lists anything? We know how good KU is, and that is all that really matters.

New multimillion dollar medical building set for west Lawrence; future of Clinton Parkway interchange may spark a battle

When I lived in Lawrence, (till 2/2013), there was a Douglas County Bank on the northeast corner of Sixth and Folks. Is that no longer there?

Nurse's lawsuit alleges that Lawrence Memorial Hospital falsified records

I visited the ER at LMH a couple of times with chest pain. NEVER was I told to wait in the reception area. The magical words "chest pain" get you the express line to a treatment room. In fact, they did not even take any info past the complaint, but immediately got a wheel chair and moved me to an exam room. Yes, I was on Medicare at the time.

Planners looking at trading some downtown parking spots for additional bicycle parking; Alvamar redevelopment recommended for approval by planning commissioners

At least federal mandates for handicapped parking will prevent the city from canceling those spaces. Someone said that walking to alternative parking spaces is always an option. It is if the shopper can do that walking. Handicaps do not necessarily mean the person is in a wheelchair, and this prevents many people from shopping downtown. I lived in Lawrence in the first ten years of this century, and seldom went downtown just because of this. Walking from on a parking spot in Lawrence as q disabled person is not an option for me---or for many others.
