What is a meal or a food that you think captures the essence of summer and why?

Watermelon. It takes until summer to be ripe and then the juice is great on a hot day.

City, County would pay to keep open state SRS office under proposal announced Monday

I agree with you. This is a solution that needs to be put in place until the rest of the story plays out,. The other issues will be addressed, but without this offer, it might be too late to keep this office from closing. I never saw a completed list of the expected costs to the local non-profits. There were over 20, and the need to hire new caseworkers to handle the increased caseloads and the cost of transportation for many of them, the totals on the first 8 were already over $150.000 per year. The article says there will be no mill levy increase. But you can bet there would be one if the office closes and the local agencies have to pick up the costs of over 10,000 clients. Short-term, this will stop the closing while the other issues are worked out. I am proud of them too.

Local officials, representatives hope to prevent closure of Lawrence SRS office

We don't need this Siedlecki plan here in Kansas that failed in Florida. Go to Google and check it out. Access Florida. There are numerous reports of the problems they are trying to force on Kansas now. Some of he reports are over 100 pages long. Who asked the tax paying citizens of Kansas if they want this ridiculous system that merely saves money because it is on-line,
gets rid of all Social services, and replaces them with "State of Kansas On-line services".

Fiscal abuse

This has nothing to do with political parties. It has to do with something that is flat our wrong no matter who is doing it. It is unfortunate that some people confuse the two. or rely on the past to decide how wrong it is.

Fiscal abuse

The people of Douglas County should be livid. He is spending outrageous amounts of money while saying the budget has to be cut for the poor, the elderly and the disabled. The State of Kansas will continue to take our taxes, and then refuse to provide one of the most basic services locally to people who live in Douglas County. Those tax dollars will now be sent to other counties.
