Had we known at age 50 or 60 the health issues we would face after 70, we would have tried to be better prepared. There are so many diseases, conditions and possible solutions that it becomes tangled webs of “damned if you do, damned if you don’t.”

Our Kansas legislators go on and on about their reverence for the Constitution. Yet they seem poised to disregard the Kansas Constitution if our state Supreme Court instructs them to increase school funding. They should amend the constitution instead of defying the court.

The next time a “temporary” tax increase is proposed, remember what the 2013 Kansas Legislature did to you.

Vice Mayor Pete Meitzner was right. Leaving on the public fountains adds to the quality of life and vibrancy of the city. It’s important to have something visually pleasant to enjoy around here.

So, now we’ve come to a decision point: Either we have green grass in our yards (with the requisite water running down the street) or we have water to drink on hot summer days. Decision time, folks.

Tired of paying for Riverfest buttons to foot the bill for everyone else? Welcome to conservatism.

It is time to defang the IRS further by repealing the tax-code provision preventing churches and other nonprofits from political advocacy. We want to hear the moral case for political positions and candidates.

More than 30 were arrested in Garden City on gang-related charges. Tell me again how Hispanics are just here for the jobs, how they aren’t a drain on the economy, how they want to fit into our society and obey our laws.

I’ve attended the National Baseball Congress World Series since the 1960s, and I believe it’s the best baseball ever, including the pros. It’s amazing how many people in Wichita, let alone around the region, don’t know the NBC exists. How about advertising this great event in the manner it deserves?

The more the people accept the F-word, the more we are going to see it in print and hear it. Cheers for the letter writer who complained about an article linking to a vulgar website.

June 10, 2013 – the latest in the year it has reached 90 degrees in Wichita since 1993. Darn that global warming.

Dear cashiers: Shut your pieholes and get customers out the door. Thank you.
