Kobach criticizes New Hampshire election law, but Kansas officials say our law is much the same

Jamie Shew would make an excellent Sec. of State. When he went to the retirement homes to get them current ID's was brilliant. Heck he might even get rid of all the electronic voting booths in the state.

Kansans pressuring Moran, again, on upcoming Obamacare repeal vote

Why is this still being debated? Thank goodness Trump and the Dems made a deal delaying the budget and debt ceiling, because Congress is so dysfunctional right now. Let's work on a budget, debt ceiling, tax reform and tax repatriation. Tax repatriation is an easy one. It's simple. An Apple for example is not going to bring $250B cash to the US at a 40% tax, but 10%-15% they will. And I did learn at LHS that 40% of zero is zero.

Trump dumps Obama-era campus assault guidance; universities can now require higher standard of proof

I still don't understand why any university has anything to do with sex assaults investigations. College is a business, and businesses have a conflict of interest in cases like this. It should always be a police matter, campuses are not sovereign states.

I am sure the police headquarters and school bond projects price have also increased.

Estimated cost to expand Douglas County Jail jumps by millions of dollars

Heck, you can add a million or two this month. Florida and Texas will take a lot of the dwindling number of construction workers for years.

Renewable energy is heavily subsidized, we should protest that.

Social media was key to Trump's victory, campaign officials tell Kansas GOP

Trump was the second most disliked candidate in history. Historians will have fun writing how we put the two of the most hated people In American against each other. Hope the Dems have learned from history. After the Mondale/Dukakis beat downs they found a moderate governor to save the day. They have some good governors, I hope they don't go with Warren.

Tyson puts chicken plant on hold, citing commission's withdrawal of bond support

I think we all forgot about history. It was a weekend in September nine years ago, when Lehman Brother went under, the banks had so much debt they where not sure if they could open that Monday. I know Lawrence did not suffer as much from the Great Recession because of KU as others, but we have not prepared for the next recession. We are in the longest recovery in our history and have managed only 1% rise in interest rates and have done nothing to lower the debt in good times, and a dysfunctional Congress. That's why those jobs would come in handy, the next recession, we are on our own. No bailouts, no printing of money, Fed can't do much right now, and cross our fingers we are not at war.

Douglas County official says proposed Tyson plant a Lawrence issue, too

Another thing I want to point out. Nancy Thellman maybe the biggest political advocate.for our homeless shelter. What better way to help people get out of the shelter then a job, either at Tyson or replacing the hundreds of Lawrence workers who will work there.
