Brownback fully supports outdoor recreation center proposal for Clinton State Park

"I love the idea" followed by "Now you’ve got to make all the numbers work."

This is a terrible idea, but even if it wasn't, he shows a core problem with the Brownback method here. He's completely backwards. First you investigate the numbers and data objectively to 'make them work', trying to figure out if this is a viable idea or sound investment in a community. Then, if the numbers check out, you love the idea and pursue it.

Moot point anyway. Crony Capitalism is a feature, not a bug, of Kochlandia. Kansas government has been captured by private interests who want to destroy government functionality so they privatize and kleptocrat our state.

Btw, Stephen Moore and his Kansas tax plans are probably going national....the Kansas virus will spread to the whole country. Buckle Up Buckaroos!

Lawrence-area Democratic senators face conservative challengers

"Van Meteren said she supports Brownback's tax and economic policies, saying she believes they are starting to produce positive results."

That alone should be enough for her to be crushed in November.

Feds charge former Lawrence Mayor Jeremy Farmer with embezzlement

'I have seen situations in KC where an individual who was manic got ahold of a functioning non profits presidency and bulldozed a board of directors into letting them severely financially damage that non profit thru poor decisions, in less than one years time .'

This kind of happens everywhere, including Lawrence, fwiw.

Lawrence City Commission to review plans for another two-lane roundabout

Fred, you're wrong. Modern roundabouts are safer. You just don't like them because you are unfamiliar with them.

Realize that as you prattle on about 'near misses', what you are actually saying is that even when people are messing up while using roundabouts, they are still not getting in wrecks. By design, roundabouts make dangerous, high speed, high impact crashes far less likely to occur.

Opinion: Open letter to the Republican Party

Scott, I don't understand your metaphor. Who exactly are the 'slaves on the plantation' that you speak of?

Commissioner begins politicking for Just Food funding; a look at amounts that nonprofits receive from city and how those are falling

More efficient and cheaper for the city to give to agencies to try to help solve or meet some of these problems than it is for the city to create their own solution in many cases, or to spend money dealing with the predictable consequences of these problems not being dealt with at all, imo.

That said, has much changed in terms of non-profit accountability in the post Farmer era? If not (and that is what it looks like to me), very disappointing.

Tough budget decisions lie ahead, city manager warns

(Perceived) "close-calls" at low speeds are safer than head on collisions at high speeds when a distracted driver blows through a stop sign or red light.
