LHS football coach addresses transgender rights protest, aftermath in letter to school

Dirk's all right. He's one of the smartest guys I know of. I was in his LHS graduating class. We didn't run with the same groups, but my memories are of a stand-up guy. Dirk Wedd will always do his best to do the right thing. LHS is lucky to have such a valuable contributor & alumnus.

Lighten up, Francis. Maybe you should go back to bed and try getting up on the other side.

City wins early victory in lawsuit alleging landlord discriminated against veteran and his support dog

“…It does not matter at this point whether Christopher Evans can produce documentation proving his disability, need for accommodation, and a pristine background suitable for tenancy,” Huff wrote. “What matters is that he presented documentation to defendants indicating his documented need of a support animal and was denied a lease.”

You have got to be kidding, Judge Huff. The supposed victim doesn't need to provide documentation supporting his claims? He just had to initially write up a bunch of stuff that says he's a veteran and needs a support dog? It doesn't matter that the landlords were astute enough to suspect fraud? Wow! Why doesn't the plaintiff bear the burden of proof? I thought that's the way the law is supposed to work.

Lawrence school district's $87 million bond issue: A few frequently asked questions

I voted in favor of it. Building the football stadiums was fiscally prudent for the long run. I'm glad the elementary schools were improved and I'm hopeful this referendum will pass in order to improve the secondary schools, mainly LHS. If you want to keep your community thriving, you need good educational facilities. It helps to attract new residents and new industry. I will not, however, support the new jail expansion unless equal considerations are given to new and/or improved mental health services and facilities.

Rollback of federal protection for transgender students won't affect Lawrence schools, superintendent says

No, what's appalling is excluding a transgender from using the facilities of their identified gender. That is discrimination and segregation. Your examples are ludicrous.

Rollback of federal protection for transgender students won't affect Lawrence schools, superintendent says

There are still no needs for transgender bathrooms. That constitutes segregation and it's appalling.
