Lawrence school board’s goals outlined for bond issue

I am still bitter about the community that was destroyed at Waky Valley. For all you city folks that think you understand....forget it. You never will.
Unfortunately, the emphasis on perverted budgetary constraints has skewed the true emphasis on education. Yes, it takes financial frugality and budgetary constraint to run an effecient school district. Yet, there is that semi-lucid acknowlegement that another part of our education consists of the following:
altruism
friendship
community
education
imagination
Hard to put a dollar sign on those, but believe you me, these are just a few of the elements of strong, healthy communities.
How many folks that are responding to this article have read books to 2nd graders, go on field trips, give teachers items they need for school, and quite frankly have fun with the kids?
There is little truth out there in the world, but I can guarantee you this: I get about 10 minutes of truth every day being with the kids.
I do not feel the leadership of USD 497 truly wants to reach a goal of a strong, healthy, education system.

I appreciate everyone's concern about this topic. RPh's are not very interested in this issue. It rarely happens and if it does the chains have protocol in place to make sure your Rx is filled. Most independents wouldn't be in business if they chose this route.
This "hot button" topic is geared towards the governor's agenda.
It has created quite the response.
Let it be known, RPh's are not pushing this agenda.

The RPh is the only person that can authorize and give final approval before dispensing. Maybe the RPh owns the pharmacy or the only one on duty.

This "problem" is rare. I have practiced pharmacy for 15 years and still have not run across this issue.

That is correct. RPh's are not pushing this agenda. I have been a board member of KPHA for several years and this issue has never been brought up.

Interesting, I didn't know RPh's were psychic. As a practicing pharmacist, we don't have the diagnosis to accompany the prescription. There are plenty of women who use bcp's for menstrual cycle control or other diagnoses that have nothing to do with contraception or abortion.
