Common Core standards will soon be a thing of the past in Kansas

Well, Bob, your President seems to be very popular in the states with the most uneducated residents. Given that you're stuck here in the middle with us, might I suggest you try Mississippi or Alabama? Move on, and you'll be amongst your own people. Go on... and bless...

Several LHS marching band members take the knee during national anthem at football game

Not knowing how ancient you are, Francis (I could assume, but you know...), the world has changed since you were a teenager. Since then, we've had this thing called a "Civil Rights Movement" where we acknowledge that people of different races have equal rights. We've also had this gender thing... where people of different sexes have equal rights.

And... not to completely blow your mind... we have the whole LGBT thing... but I know you're still stuck in the racial, gender equality bubble. So, give yourself a few years to process that, come back, and we'll work with you on the rest... BLESS.

Oh dear... Bob found his way to thesaurus.com. I guess anyone can play at literacy these days, even trolls. He failed, but still, he tried. Someone, please give the troll a treat...

(Actually, he's an OSU fan, so with his three teeth, he probably opts for soft oatmeal.)

How so, Steve? Other than throwing "snowflakes" like you're the Christmas Fairy (hmm), you seem to lack substance in your comments.

Some days, Chad, it seems like you just dropped out of a Fannie Flagg novel and that you're writing for the Elmwood Springs newspaper. Lordy, "green tea ice cream is a thing in Thailand!"... and has been a thing at every Trader Joe's and in many ice cream sections for the past two decades. We're just gettin' so WORLDLY out here on the prairie...

Tyson Foods to build $320M chicken operation near Tonganoxie; plans to employ 1,600

Yeah, my county, my watershed... so, it concerns me. You... not so much. NIYBY, simpleton.

Right... an 80% tax abatement for 10 years, along with $500 million in bonds issued by LVCO. SUCH a windfall. And what do we get in LVCO? 1,600 low wage, low quality jobs, a new "neighbor", Tyson, with one of the worst environmental records in the U.S., and of course, the pollution of our air and waterways. Did I mention decreased property values for those of us fortunate to live within 3 miles of the proposed facility?

Why not put it in Douglas County, maybe next to one of the hard won call centers with all their "quality" jobs?

Editorial: Mixed reaction on Tyson plant

Tyson has a record as one of the worst polluters of waterways in the U.S. And living 3 miles south of the proposed site of the new facility, I have no interest in the pollution, smell, and additional traffic created by Tyson. And 1,600 low quality, low wage jobs isn't the type of economic development we want in our community.

The governor and Leavenworth county commissioners did a secret deal with Tyson and sprang it on the citizens of south county on Tuesday afternoon. Since then, local opposition to the deal (and by that, I mean primarily those of us who live in LVCO) has grown rapidly. Residents expressed their outrage at the Tongie city council meeting Tuesday night, but the acreage slated for development is not within city limits, so there's little the council can do.

But the real culprits, the LVCO county commissioners, meet today in Leavenworth. I imagine (and hope) their meeting will be full of angry residents -- maybe not villagers with pitchforks -- but the image is appropriate. We don't want Tyson in LVCO. I doubt many of you would want them in Douglas.
