Large class sizes at some Lawrence elementary schools concern parents

This is why I was always against the school bond, it did not solve the problem of overcrowding.

City Commission outlines 'transparent, open' process for picking new commissioner by early October

I will be surprised if any any candidate passes 4-0, like they want. Feeling will be hurt.

Safety inspections at school construction sites questioned

I think what happens is USD 497 wanted as much of the $92.5M as possible to go for improvements. The more safety equipment you require the contractors to do, the more the bid goes up.

City Commission outlines 'transparent, open' process for picking new commissioner by early October

Are any of these 12 going to be considered for the commission? I joke because that's how Dick Chaney became VP, being on the committee to nominate a Vice President under W. Bush.

Kansas Democrats try to regroup after chairman resigns

I think the Democratic Party as a whole is split. When the national party is courting Joe Biden as the savior, things are bad.

Paul Davis still a star in eyes of Kansas Democrats

I viewed Paul Davis as a boring candidate over his head in 2014.

Just Food says it was 'shocked' by Farmer's handling of business; whether crimes were committed 'to be determined'

Interesting article (from 2011). Says non-profits just are not as hard on cracking down on embezzlement as regular business. While this is public, which is good, will they press charges or make him pay it back? They also say non-profits lose 13% of the total they collect to fraud, which is sad.

Woman allegedly bashes truck with golf club; false alarm on kidnapping call; man causes ruckus in trailer park; firefighters collect Muscular Dystrophy donations

No man is worth going to jail for. A golf club will only hurt him for a little while. A good lawyer can hurt him for years.

Letter: Political dollars

The Dems use the Super PAC's almost as much. Just the way it goes. Cap candidates money and the Trumps and Bloombergs of the world will have an even bigger advantage.

Still trying to guess his motive. If he didn't steal it, then what?
