Kansas unemployment rate increases for third straight month

What does this mean?
"Part of the reason of increases in the previous months was due to more individuals entering the labor force," said Kansas Department of Labor Secretary Lana Gordon.

I am sorry to hear that Bed Mart is going out of business. My family has purchased three beds there and were very happy with the service, delivery and are still very happy with the beds. I wish the owners a happy retirement. Thank you for owning a great business in Lawrence.

Lawrence gas station owner gets caught up in national battle with Big Oil over future of ethanol

The modified corn grown today shouldn't even be considered food for consumption. It is better used as fuel. Those of you who feel like fossil fuels are a never ending commodity should look for stories of what happened when water wells went dry in the past.

Parties near agreement on fence dispute

I like the idea that they turned to government for mediating the dispute rather than litigation. $22.50 over maybe thousands of dollars seems like a good use of common sense.
