KU journalism professor condemned by administrators for tweet about NRA

Guth, who was censured by the university in 2011 over an angry exchange with a colleague, said he was not surprised that Brill and Caboni condemned his comments publicly, though he regretted that they were drawn into the debate. And that is his only regret, he said.

One would think that the "angry exchange" probably was very severe to draw a "university censured action"...protected by privacy rights; one has to wonder - was Guth required to complete an Anger Mangement course or was he simply sent to sit in the corner of his cubicle with a Dunce Hat for the day.

Have not read where the Navy Yard shooter was connected to the NRA, but there were confirmed reports that the shooter was an avid player of violent video games, and had mental issues of hearing voices.

One has to wonder if Guth "hear voices"...

Three and OUch: Jayhawks' skid continues with road loss to Sooners

After reading the comments, most think that KU will be back...just wait till the next time...not a big deal...

Been a KU fan for over 50 years...the TCU game was the worst game KU played. The OU game was not that much better.

So Monday Night is a Clint Eastwood Night...You gotta ask yourself, Do You Feel Lucky??? Well, KU Team, do you??? If you, KU Team, feel lucky then Rock Chalk UP YOUR FOURTH LOST IN A ROW. Playing on Your Luck is what got you three straight losses.

Perhaps grammaddy is on to something...because in the last three games it appeared the KU team was playing as if they had a huge hangover.

Update to labor laws could prevent youths from doing certain tasks

Heaven Forbid!!! It is about time that Mrs. Solis, who has worked in the government sector all of her life, put a halt to farm children from doing farm chores! Let alone knows which end of the pitch fork pitches manure.

Yes to not allowing farm children from gathering eggs in the chicken coop because the chicken coop is essentially a manure pit.

Yes to not allowing farm children from riding in a climate controlled cab of a farm tractor with their father ~ the dangers in a climate controlled cab of a farm tractor is really bad.

Yes to not allowing farm children from greasing the farm implements ~ those grease guns are very dangerous and can go off without warning.

Yes to not allowing farm children that are holding the vaccinating medications for their father ~ those vaccinating medications are very heavy.

Yes to not allowing farm children inside a grain silo (bins) to scoop out the grain ~ the grain silos and bins are very dark places and the “boogyman” hides there.

So what are farm parents to do with their farm children? Easy, send them to sad_lawrencian house as sad-lawrencian will never allow those farm children to return to their parents farm as the children may cut their foot by stepping on a fresh pile of cow manure!

KU football turns eye to future

Mainly "tongue in cheek" thought...Gil was suppose to be "the" coach with not the record to support it and it cost big money - so is the next coach going to be "record proven" but will end up "not the" coach and the cost will be greater.

KU football turns eye to future

KU should stop the searching over the nation for a football coach...there is a local coach that has a better record and lives in Lawrence and would win more than 2 games. Who is it?

Mr. Lisher coaching tenure spans 29 years from including one year as head football coach at South Jr. High in Lawrence to nine years as Defensive coordinator at Lawrence high school. Coach Lisher has coached in 8 State Championship football games winning seven. He also served as head track coach at Lawrence High school for four years where he won a State Championship in 1991. Coach Lisher has been head football coach for eighteen years, three at Blue Valley and fifteen at Free State. Coach Lisher has also coached in three Shrine Bowl high school all-star games, serving as head coach in 2006 as well as four Kansas City Metro All star games serving as head coach in 2010.

Sheahon Zenger's challenge: Find money to make coaching change

Yes I have played team sports...I never needed to have a coach inspire me to win!!! Who wants to play just to lose? Winners don't play football, winners beat others that just play football, any other sport, or succeeding in life.

Sheahon Zenger's challenge: Find money to make coaching change

So far it appears all of the comments lean to "the coaches are 100% responsible for the KU poor performance". I have watched several of the games and I don't recall seeing any of the coaches fully uniformed on the field missing tackles, missing blocking assignments, dropping passes, inaccurate passing, or making pentalies.

The current KU players have plenty of talent but sorely lack a key ability....IT IS CALLED DESIRE TO PERFORM AND WIN!!!!!!

Want to know what "DESIRE" looks like? You just saw it this weekend but the players were wearing "Purple & White"

Solid Waste Task Force hears suggestions to encourage residents to recycle

Public or Private sector waste management - which is more efficient? Don't get caught in this trap because: 1) Overhead (personnel payroll & equipment maintenance) should not be more than 1% difference between public and private sector operations. 2) Landfill cost (purchase of land and environmental containment) should be the same cost. 3) The BIG DIFFERENCE - with public operations changes to operations that drive cost can be implemented immediately but with private operations changes to operations there is almost always cost increases because changes to the waste contract will result in increased cost and be passed along to the residents.

So how does one go about increasing recycling while reducing Overhead to the lowest possible cost? Very simple: 1) Institute a waste management operations where residents can pick their level of waste service. For example, if a resident (not a commercial business) does not desire to recycle then they pay a flat rate per 45 gal container for a weekly pickup. Set the price at $50 per month. For residents that want to recycle these residents are provided the following containers: one 120 gallon yard waste container for grass clippings and leaves, one 45 gallon container for recycle material, and one 30 gallon container for landfill waste matter. The yard waste and recycle material will be picked up every second and forth week and the landfill waste matter will be picked up every first and third week. The monthly cost would be $7.50.

Everyone will scream that this will require a new outlay of equipment and cost money NOW. But if the city is serious about waste management then no one should look at the near term cost but the long term benefit-cost ratio.

Lastly, private operations are no more effective than public operations because both private and public employ humans it is the Leadership that determines efficiency and lowest operating cost.

Lew Perkins' tenure as Kansas athletic director comes to a sudden conclusion — months ahead of schedule

KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little , would be it to much to ask that one criteria of the new athletic director is the ability to count athletic tickets sold versus total athletic tickets available and above all...show us the money?

Let high-schoolers sleep in, state health officer says

Dr. Jason Eberhart-Phillips, that is a great idea of having school start later in the morning...er, wait a minute...but in order to attain the necessary mandatory teaching hours in a day how do you accommodate by not shifting back everything in a students daily life by that one hour?

Does not matter if the student is participating in athletics, working after school gets out, has the same amount of homework, ect. When you shift back the start of the "work day" all of the activities are shifted back the equal amount of time...Oh, I get it...you are going to invoke going off of "daylight time" everyday where we can set back the clock one hour when we go to sleep.

You people with PhD's are so much brighter than the rest of us.
