Kobach: Trump correct on immigration proposals

Your plan may work all but #3.People who are here illegally should not be put on a path to citizenship. Too many people are waiting to come into the country legally. It would be unfair to them.

Opinion: Black lives demand focus

When will the black community protest the drive-by shootings of blacks by other blacks. Seven children have been killed this year in Kansas City due to these shootings. What is the black communities defense on that?

Editorial: Kasold questions

I have noticed no speeding in the 8 block area to be affected. Kasold is one of the few roads going across town from north of Peterson Road to 31st street. I cannot envision a round-about at Harvard and Kasold without taking out someone's yard.

Large class sizes at some Lawrence elementary schools concern parents

Transportation costs are a big part of the budget. Students in east Lawrence north of 15th St. are bussed across town to Free State when Lawrence HIgh is much closer. Hutton Farms elementary students are bussed to Sunset on 9th St. Students north of Peterson road are bussed across town to Central Jr. High.

Athletic teams are bussed sometimes to out-of-state tournaments such as the one in Enid, OK. These trips cost a lot of money. Some trimming needs to be done in the transportation area. Maybe then a teacher could be hired for a classroom.

The excuse that money cannot be transferred from one account to another is always the district's excuse..

What do you know about William Quantrill?

Anyone wishing to know about the Quantrill raid should watch the Steve Jansen video. Steve has a PHD in Lawrence KS history and is well versed in the subject.

The video should be available at the Watkins Museum or the Lawrence Public library.

Dedication ceremony for newly renamed Chalmers Hall is Sunday at KU

Chancellor Chalmers was the man for the times. He certainly handled an explosive situation in a calm and reasonable manner. I am pleased that he now has a hall named for him.
