Budget panel strikes back at KU over bond deal

Minority groups push for same-day voter registration

I think anything that helps more people to vote is a good thing. I wish one thing that someone should bring up is if you will be required to have photo ID to vote, every single Kansas resident should be able to go to the DMV and get in ID for free.

KU and the problem of the fraternity secrets it keeps

Great article. KU is a business, and they are protecting the bottom line. That is the only reason they redacted that much. I could have lived with taking the names out, but that was ridiculous.

The one easy/good fix is adding the revenue officers but I bet the Republicans are not willing to add more employees.

Letter: Rising costs

While I think ACA is good, it does have consequences. Large insurance companies have merged, doctors turning "concierge", and the price will only go higher as the years go on, especially for the over 50.
