Sedgwick County Commissioners Tim Norton, Dave Unruh and Jim Skelton just handed the federal government $10,000 cash. They need to be removed from office immediately.


Fluoridation is the last thing a smart businessman looks for in a community where he might start a new business, because of recent U.S. and worldwide studies linking many health conditions to drinking fluoridated water. What employer wants more employee health insurance coverage?


I was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, and I can’t believe that the people in Ohio would vote for President Obama. He sounds good, but he does not do what he says.


What are the chances that anyone who is so stupid as to be unable to secure a photo ID is going to have the knowledge of the issues in this election, which are that Obama has destroyed the American economy and caused the downgrading of America’s credit rating?


Regarding the howls from the right about Obama’s supposed class warfare: I’d gladly give up 30 to 40 percent of my income to the government if it promised to soak the wealthy fat cats for 80 to 90 percent of theirs. All day and twice on Sunday.

Why subject yourselves to one of two careless evils? Mitt Romney cares about his money – nothing else. Obama cares for nothing. He is literally a puppet. Wake up and write in Ron Paul.

Why all the complaining about the NFL replacement referees? What else would a person expect from a bunch of poorly trained scabs?


The bad call that stole Monday night’s game from the Green Bay Packers might have been prevented if the billionaire owners would cough up the measly $3 million it would take to get the professional referees back. Do it before this season’s stats are considered a joke.


If laws are so important, why are most of the drivers on the road not paying any attention to them? I guess those laws are made for those other people.


It is very frustrating when people going to the Midwest Beerfest in downtown Wichita, at Century II, block the entrance and exits to the parking lot. What’s worse is they just stand there looking at you, and you are forced to honk your horn and then they barely move at that.
