Lawrence school board candidates agree on need for more openness, differ on charter schools

I am especially concerned about anyone being on a public school board who supports charter schools.

Family owned hamburger, sandwich shop opening near Sixth and Wakarusa

Besides the wonderful food, the owners are attentive to their customers. We love that Jesi will make a gluten-free dessert occasionally and post it on Facebook. I was one of the people who gasped the first time I went there when I saw that someone knew what a scotcharoo is.

Kris Kobach enters 2018 race for Kansas governor

Don't forget he knows how to "handle" those voting machines. That definitely needs to be looked into before any election.

I'm thinking that's the attitude that got Trump elected.

Letter to the editor: Write a check

So, basically you are willing to coast on the generosity of others? I would hope, then, you aren't someone who would criticize welfare recipients.

Lawmakers not giving up on reversing Brownback tax policies

Am I understanding this correctly? Wagle criticized Brownback for vetoing a bill that she then turned around and voted against. Does that make sense? And if she's getting constituents 10 to 1 wanting to override Brownback's vote, why is she just ignoring them? Talk about trying to straddle both sides of the fence.

Letter to the editor: Dump Pitts

Thank you for publishing Leonard Pitts' columns. I find them to be well written, on target and full of food for thought. I do not have to read only things I agree with, and I think his voice is one that needs to be heard. He is not writing just for black people, although it makes sense that treatment of minorities is a common theme for him. If he wrote articles that appealed only to white people, I wouldn't be reading it. Please do not consider discontinuing his column. By the way, I am a senior white woman who does not believe in labeling people as liberal or conservative as a way to denigrate one or the other.

Yoder voted 'yes' on overhaul of ethics office, although getting that answer wasn't easy

I think some of you are missing the point. Thank you, Peter Hancock and Yael Abouhalkah.
