Dallas Cowboys running back and Wichita native Joseph Randle, who was arrested last week on a misdemeanor charge for allegedly shoplifting a pack of underwear and a bottle of cologne at a Frisco Dillard's department store, will now be a spokesman for an underwear company.
Wichita is being misjudged and deprived by major promoters, who seem to think nothing but country and wrestling will sell at Intrust Bank Arena. So it’s worth a try for Sedgwick County to ask private management firm SMG to create a $200,000 “event promotion fund” over the next three years to generate more bookings, including of diverse acts.
The Pat Roberts of the 1980s and 1990s was kind, funny, thoughtful and bipartisan. He worked closely with former Democratic U.S. Rep. Dan Glickman to make certain the farm bills of that era benefited Kansas. In depressing contrast, the current Pat Roberts voted against the farm bill this year. As we saw in the Oct. 15 debate, he’s cranky and mean.
According to the ads and mailers, President Obama is to blame for everything that’s wrong in Washington, D.C., and Gov. Sam Brownback and Statehouse Republicans were moved by their love of public schools to approve more funding last spring. So it was nice to read about some candor to the contrary expressed at a recent forum in Augusta.
