Congratulations to the Machinists union and Boeing for working out their differences on the South Carolina plant. They saved the National Labor Relations Board from any further embarrassment.
The most troubling aspect of Boeing potentially leaving Wichita is the moral and ethical lapse of going back on its commitment to make this the tanker finishing center. The executive management team and board of directors should be appalled at the message this sends to not only the state of Kansas and Wichita but to the employees around the country.
Sedgwick County voted “no” for the new Kansas Star Casino. It sits in Sumner County. But guess who gets all the revenue from the trial run event? Sedgwick County charities. Fair? I think not. Political? Probably.
Another tax-increment financing district is established, and another community improvement district sales tax also is expected to be approved by the Wichita City Council.

Leave it to the liberal media to defend Alec Baldwin after his ridiculous temper tantrum on an airplane. You don’t like the rules? Find another way to travel, crybaby.
Newt Gingrich? Really, GOP? You’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel now.

Tim Tebow wouldn’t be criticized if he were a Muslim.
I have a 14-year-old grandson who could call offensive plays better than the Chiefs staff. Sure glad they call Missouri home.
It’s just a matter of time before Charlie Weis quits or gets fired and KU gets stuck holding the bag for another several million dollars.
My wife and I visited Old Cowtown Museum during the Victorian Christmas. What a wonderful experience. We encountered lots of volunteers working, Christmas music, nice lighting and decorations, and, of course, the kids loved Santa. For those who missed it: You missed a classy evening.
