Douglas County says Kobach was not shown favoritism in building case; failure to be strict on building codes was result of new, unwritten policy

Include Weinaug in as a person who should have a complaint filed against him. He should be removed from his position.

New Kansas rules would limit spending of welfare benefits

They have already castrated the poor figuratively.

School district may increase property taxes to offset expected state funding cuts

The difference is that David Reber cares about education and is working to educate others. Yes, he has an interest, but he has not sold out to special interests, and if you compare the information distributed by he and by Dave Trabert, it becomes clear who is conveniently telling only half truths and using data to mislead. If you were a teacher wouldn't you be speaking out? Dave Trabert is not supporting education.

Sorry, Mr. Trabert. I am going to believe local administrators know what they have to spend. Why would I believe anything coming out of the Kansas Policy Institute?

School district may increase property taxes to offset expected state funding cuts

Andy, are you the Andy Anderson who graduated from Free State? If so, I know you got a good education. Why are you being argumentative here? Of course more money for anything means improvement. Here's a couple of examples for you. More money means more teachers available to teach and give more attention to students who, therefore, would be in smaller classes. Any teacher having a room full of 30 plus students has less time for preparation because of evaluation, etc. More money means more support staff for students. Schools are about a whole lot more than classes within the classroom. More money might mean students could receive assistance from social workers. Paraprofessionals are helpful to teachers and more money might mean more paraprofessionals. More money might mean more funds for field trips, or new equipment, or replacements for worn out sports equipment. I think you are just pulling everyone's chain, and I think you need to think a bit about what you write before you post these things. If you are the Andy I remember, you can be likable, so knock it off. If you aren't the Andy I remember, feel free to ignore me.. Either way, your comments are not helpful.

Brownback announces $280 million in allotment cuts to fill budget shortfall

Oh, but Brownback referred to her as his "rock star." She is just as power hungry as he is.

Brownback announces $280 million in allotment cuts to fill budget shortfall

I don't want to sound mean, but how could anyone NOT know all this. It was in newspapers across the state, Paul Davis reiterated it over and over. Even Brownback made comments about this, and now he lies and says, "I didn't know." Don't buy into that crap. He knew, we knew, and it's too bad more voters didn't figure it out.

Letter: Have at it

The point is that the people of this state have not spoken. They didn't bother to vote, so we all have to live with what a few people decided. That a Republican governor can get only 50 plus percent of the votes of those who chose to do their civic duty does not speak well of the state nor of him. Perhaps stupid is the wrong word, but it's not far off. Unfortunately, we will have to deal with it, but we don't have to like it. And, by the way, who is Mr. Gruber?

Lawmakers worry KPERS may be target during revenue shortfall

I'm tired of all the small towns and rural areas getting the blame for Brownback. Yes, they elected him, but geez, look at Johnson County. People all over are not very well educated about politics or the Koch brothers.
