Letters to the editor on renaming airport, jury duty, WSU Dean’s Scholars

We support the petition to change the name of the airport from Wichita Mid-Continent to Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower International Airport (“Rename new airport?” Aug. 30 Eagle Editorial). Though a change would involve some expense, consider the importance of an airport as a gateway, the first impression of the place where it is located. We have an opportunity to have it reflect more substance and meaning by invoking the name of Eisenhower, rather than the vague and inaccurate “Mid-Continent.”
