Letter: Meat and cancer

I say drink red wine.It raises HDL (the good, preventative number). Eating fish in Kansas is a crapshoot. With pesticide run off in our streams and flown in (meaning nutrition is lost) fish, especially farmed salmon, you're better off eating local beef.

Kansas Gov. Brownback not looking at cuts, taxes to balance budget

Probably through a mandated prayer meeting in some state office building.

Behind the Lens: Over the moon

Mike, this was a beautiful shot. It had all of the magic of the moment with a little ode to ET.

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

Lost in this discussion about trying to save Just For Food is the statistic that this "charitable" organization spent less than 20 percent on its mission. To get more information about how really horrible this is, read this: https://www.charitynavigator.org/inde...

Rather than trying to raise the funds to cover the back taxes, I suggest the focus should be on how our community can shift its support to a food bank that has sufficient staff to provide the needed financial oversight and a governing board that has proven it knows what a board is supposed to do.

Trying to skinny down Just for Food staffing to save costs simply does not make sense in light of what has already happened with a small staff. Food insecurity is a real problem and it is a problem this community wants to help support. Our eyes and our checkbooks should focus on helping people in need not helping bail out a failed—in so many ways—board and organization.

Farmer faced legal issues over unpaid income taxes while he ran for Lawrence City Commission in 2013; did not disclose

If it is true that Just Food paid out only 17% in support of its mission, it's a charity that does not need to exist. I agree with others above cash lax oversight is a recipe for what we have here. Perhaps there is a more efficient—one with excellent financial controls in place—that could take over Just Food. It's time for the Just in Just Food to also mean morally right.

Douglas County OKs specialty meat shop; Kobach fails to block Lawrence entrepreneur

I've never met Brian Strecker but my husband and I still miss Pachamama's burgers. I hope Mr. Strecker will have a website and let us know where we can purchase his delightful food. I am sure it will be delicious. Almost as delicious as the justice that was served here.

Lawrence Mayor Jeremy Farmer submits resignation to city

My dear Mr Forer, as a former public relations director whose fingers did some crazy walking and on more than one draft signed my title as director of public relations, please, please, add the missing '"l"! And I agree about the road down the sociopath.

All counties in Kansas allowing same-sex marriage licenses, but state not yet allowing name changes, joint tax returns

I'm not a lawyer, but I like the juicy, sassiness of a Writ of Mandamus: A (writ of) mandamus is an order from a court to an inferior government official ordering the government official to properly fulfill their official duties or correct an abuse of discretion.
