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.

Lawmakers, frustrated by failure of tax bill, mulling what to do next

New city report says 27th Street may need $200K in traffic calming

As a 40 year resident of Indian Hills, I obviously think addressing traffic on 27 St. is long overdue. I think a minimum would be to install sidewalks so that children and other pedestrians can walk on both sides of the streets from Louisiana to Iowa. Perhaps then adding those cameras that track speed and issue tickets to those who continue to think it's really a smart idea to travel in excess of 30 miles an hour in a residential neighborhood. Heck, there might be enough ticket revenue to pay for the sidewalks.
