Letter: Godly parents

If someone wants to own slaves based on biblical precedent, under your definition of religious freedom, do they get that right?

Tom Markus, city manager of Iowa City, named Lawrence city manager

To clarify, I'm not saying this is my opinion, only that I'm trying to understand what the OP is getting at.

So, more tax breaks for developers, is that what you are getting at?

Kansas title fee increase suggested to fund more patrol officers

And suggestions for making up for the manufactured crisis will just continue to have downward pressure...higher sales taxes, more excise taxes, increasing fees like the one above, etc., everything except the absolutely obvious step of repealing the damn corporate free-ride that got us into the mess in the first place.

But what do you mean Bob? The report is simply 'enhancing' the options for prospective mothers.

What a joke.

Kansas governor touts tax policy with tweet on Royals star

And all for the low low cost of destroying the state's public sector and not having enough money to adequately fund the state's budget!

Kansas lawmakers pin hopes on efficiency study

I bet they target education, public sector benefits, push for some types of privatization of state resources, and propose to close some DMV sites.

Zero mention of the insane tax giveaways that caused the majority of our budget issues in the first place.

Audit finds lack of controls by Just Food board played role in alleged fraud by Jeremy Farmer

I think it is obvious to everyone that the board failed, but they are also working to fix those failures and do things the right way going forward. Nothing indicates that anyone on the board was complicit with Farmer; indeed, it looks as though Farmer went to great lengths to conceal his activities, which also appear to be done for his own financial gain. Yes, the board should have caught him sooner, but Farmer is the only real guilty party, imo.

The critical part is not satiating the appetites of the professional critics on LJW or elsewhere in the community, but getting on with the important work that Just Food and other local non-profits do.

While this should be a wake-up call for local non-profits boards to get their acts together, I'm much more interested in making sure the community continues to have needs served than I am in unfounded speculation or sanctimonious finger pointing.
