Fitness center near Ninth and Iowa undertaking major expansion; group working to create a local currency

I still have one of the REAL Dollar bills.. I think it's the one with Burroughs on it. My ex-partner helped in designing one or maybe more of them.

Cleanup continues after Lawrence hit with historic snowfall; several school districts close Thursday

The smart people are staying off the streets so that they *can* get cleared. All those stuck cars are going to mean your street gets bypassed for snow removal until the plows can safely pass.
You're an Academic Librarian, I'm sure that UMKC can handle a day or two without you.

Have a cuppa tea, enjoy the snow day, chill out. It sounds like you need a day to relax a bit.

Murder suspect's attorney: McLinn has 'mental problems'

Death penalty cases are also a huge expense for the state, and with the number of mandatory appeals that must be filed, take years and years to come to resolution.

Report: Murder suspect, 19, had knives, guns, hash, ax in victim's car

Yes, who is to say that she wasn't on the run from some other folks involved in the incident?
I had no idea hashish was back to being a popular drug in Kansas!

Another question is raised; a previous article stated the LPD has the alleged murder weapon, but this one says it was found in the car?

Anti-abortion legislator has ultrasounds performed in her Senate committee

Showing sonograms performed at 12 and 24 weeks and making a spectacle of the miracle of life is totally ignoring the fact that most abortions are performed in the first trimester. I challenge any of those legislators to recognize and identify the parts of a fetus visible in a sonogram of that stage of pregnancy. "Waving its little hand at us"? Oh puhleaze.

Abortion opponent will have ultrasound done on pregnant woman during committee meeting

I believe that whenever possible, the girl/woman should have the right to make her own decisions about what she is to do with her own body, without the interference of state/church or well-meaning people with their own agendas.
There is not a woman alive who is not aware of what she is terminating, and even that doesn't make anyone sleep any better with all the people standing ready and willing to pass judgement and shame upon her.
If adoptions were as simple as anti-abortion believers would like to think, there would be no need for so many couples to have to journey overseas to secure a baby. And a great many good people who do want to adopt are more often unwilling to take on a child born to a possibly unhealthy, malnourished (thank you, state legislators, for cutting human services) and addicted and/or alcoholic woman.
But you see, the majority of abortions aren't done on young teens, but are actually chosen by married women with children already who have fallen victim to birth control failure and and well, well aware of their decision being the harder yet the more desirable outcome for themselves and their families.
