Republican Jim Barnett commits to LGBT nondiscrimination policy if elected governor of Kansas

When large businesses are thinking of relocating, things like protections in the LGBT community are looked at. Especially in the tech field when you have more workers that are LGBT. Discrimination is bad for business. Heck, Austin would be the on the top of the Amazon HQ list if not for that states record on LGBT affairs.

Douglas County Sheriff's Office recommends jail redesign that would more than double number of beds

And the price tags goes up by the minute. Labor cost is not getting any cheaper.

Agreed. I heard a story of a friends friend (true or not) who was in jail for a couple of days on a simple charge and spent two days in the same cell alone with Sarah McLinn.

Lawrence sales tax questions pass overwhelmingly

Just because we pay a bunch of money for transit does not mean it's "good".

Letter to the editor: Tax plan appalling

Remember, this was done by a few Republicans in secret. The facts are coming out and many Republicans will not go along with this. If your a Republican in a high tax state like Cal, New York and New Jersey the upper middle class will get hammered. In the end, many of the ways to pay for the cuts will disappear, creating higher deficits, meaning some Republicans will not go along. We saw this already with the ACA repeal. ,

Facebook ad promoting 2016 Lawrence protest among those paid for by Russian trolls

Russia does what helps them, they do not take sides. Sure in more conservative areas in the country they organized events like protesting gay pride events.

Does not surprise me. The Facebook algorithms are a work of genius and that anyone can take advantage from for a fee. We gave Russia the tools to interfere with our elections and should be sanctioned..

Lawrence businessman writes breakup letter to GOP, hopes to form new 'centrist' party in Kansas

I am warning everyone of the Republican civil war in these 2018 primaries. Guys like Sen. Corker and Sen. Fluke are no longer conservative enough to survive primaries and not run shows me how bad it's going to get.

Long-sought restoration of Santa Fe depot delayed after no bids received

This all comes back to the shortage of construction workers in this country. Plus when you add historical issues, you need more skilled workers then average.
