Town Talk: Ross department store chain files plans to move into former Old Navy spot; city spends about $180,000 on Final Four operations; ADM signs lease to start local office

It sounds like the media believes the Kansas Bioscience Authority is going to go the way of the Kansas Arts Commission. So much for Kansas being ranked no. 5 in the country for the bioscience industry, and so much for Brownback's support of that industry. What good has he done this state as governor, or what good has happened since he became governor? I can't think of anything.

Agriculture secretary named to Kansas Bioscience Authority

Brownback and the Republican legislature are using Thornton as an excuse to get their hands on KBA funds. So much for Kansas being a leader in the bioscience industry...
