Citizenship law hits young voters, low-income neighborhoods hardest

Why would a parent not know where their child's birth certificate is? One of the most important documents and they can't find it? Sounds like baloney to me. It is not that hard to prove citizenship if you really want to.

Sponsor found for downtown Christmas parade; city plans for Winter Wonder Weekend; downtown shops to again hand out Halloween candy; construction set for industrial park

I hope the Christmas parade will televised again for those of us who cannot be downtown. It is a real treat.

If police sales tax fails, city says it would have to go back to the drawing board

The city commissioners and the city manager always raise the property tax when they want something. Corliss always claims it will only add a few dollars but after years of adding a few dollars, it becomes a real burden. No wonder people stopped buying homes.

The city government needs to learn the difference between needs and wants.

National chain Pinot's Palette signs deal for west Lawrence space; a new resolution related to police HQ; examining the city's math on proposed sales tax

If the city commission sells the land to the school board, the burden of payment will still be on the taxpayers. What the commission plans to pay for this land is a lot more than it is worth. Someone is filling their pockets with taxpayer money.

It has already been stated by one of the commissioners that if the police facility is voted down, they will raise property taxes to build it. Property tax has already been raised for this next year. It is getting harder to own a home.

KU chancellor upholds students' elimination of athletics fee but creates new fees in its place

With $93 million, the athletic department can't fund non-revenue sports? Ridiculous!! Maybe they should cut expenses elsewhere and leave the KU students money out of the equation.

Statehouse Live: Bill to repeal in-state tuition for undocumented students introduced in committee

I want them to go home to whatever country they came from. They are cowards. They could take a stand in their own country to make it better. Or they could wait in line like others who are obeying our laws and going through the legal process of becoming a citizen.

Statehouse Live: Bill to repeal in-state tuition for undocumented students introduced in committee

If Kansas continues to let illegal students attend for in-state tuition then other out-of-state students who are citizens should be able to pay in-state tuition as well.

There is a federal law that states no foreigner shall be given privileges that are not also given to citizens of the country. Just like other laws, it is not enforced.
