If a "moderate" Republican in Kansas wants to stay in Topeka, they can't change the gun laws. Just a fact.

Yoder voted 'yes' on overhaul of ethics office, although getting that answer wasn't easy

Much like 2009, when the Democrats had complete control the 2017 Republicans will screw it up too. Between repealing Obamacare before putting anything else in place first, having to raise the debt ceiling, investigating Russian hacks, ect.

I have said here for years, we have have two cities, West Lawrence and East Lawrence. Less and less people cross boarders, except South Iowa. That's why it's booming, it serves ALL of Lawrence.

Kansas residents turn to Airbnb for extra income; Lawrence hosts earn $440K in 2016

Opps, I missed this part..."Vest, who works full time, said she is able to decide when the room is available and decline a request if she doesn't feel comfortable with a potential guest." The company made everyone to pledge, in November after internal reports show it has a racism problem, "We believe that no matter who you are, where you are from, or where you travel, you should be able to belong in the Airbnb community. By joining this community, you commit to treat all fellow members of this community, regardless of race, religion, national origin, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age, with respect, and without judgment or bias."

Kansas residents turn to Airbnb for extra income; Lawrence hosts earn $440K in 2016

Airbnb will be in issue in Lawrence sooner or later. Say I own five condos on the East side, and rent to 10 families at an affordable $800 a month. Why not kick them out when the lease is up and make double thru Airbnb. In a city where affordable housing is an issue, this could be a big deal down the road.
