Ten years ago, I lost my niece. She graduated from Andover Central High School, and just days later was killed in an auto accident. I know how the family of the two sisters from Andover feel. My heart and prayers go out to the family of these two precious girls.
Hey, Wichita, if fluoride must be added to our drinking water, could we at least add vitamins, too? We could fight malnourishment and get our recommended daily allowance. What could be better?
So if they put fluoride in the water system, does that mean Chemlawn won’t be charging me to check my lawn for cavities? Come on, people – only a small amount of city water is used for drinking and food preparation.
The City Council approves a large tax abatement for a local company. The next day the city manager, crying about higher jail fees, talks about how much harder it will be to balance the budget. We might not have a budget crunch if the City Council stopped shrinking the tax base.
It appears that the voters wisely rejected the tax rebate for a hotel that isn’t even needed. An article said there are too many hotel rooms in Wichita (June 14 Business Today). Go figure.
Our airport is better than most small-market airports and could be great if we spent $30 million to expand the security area and add a real food court beyond security, new restrooms and a parking garage. And we would save $70 million by not building a new terminal.
Too bad the city and county are not combined. Then maybe we could spend less on the airport terminal (an unnecessary expenditure) and keep the Judge Riddel Boys Ranch. Just another example of out-of-touch government.
When those working in the public arena have one opinion about advancing it, why do we have a community where those in foil hats carry the day?
I am tired of the bums who sit around and do nothing. They eat up government social services and produce nothing of value. They pay no taxes, but we feed, clothe and house them. Worse, they can vote. I am tired of it. And so are you.
There’s nothing wrong with getting rich. The problem comes when the rich accumulate so much wealth that they start using it to manipulate the political process to keep the middle-income folks at bay and to strip the lower-income folks of badly needed benefits.
I hate the rich so much I am going to continue to be poor.
Republicans are wasting our country’s best president.
Thanks to your president, you have an actual example of what your bank account and the equity in your home were like in 1992.
Main Street Kansas Republicans need to take back the party from the libertarian/Perot radicals. Every good Kansas Republican needs to get to polls in the next primary and return Kansas to commonsense moderate political control. It’s time to kick the radicals to the curb before they ruin our state.
