Kansas tourism and government officials bringing back the Kanza people to Council Grove is one of the most intelligent things they have ever done (April 22 Local & State). It is true Native American history being restored. This is what people want to see.
How irresponsible of the City Council, in this time of financial crisis, to give a pay raise based on what other cities pay their managers. If council members worried less about keeping up with the Joneses, maybe we could make some headway. Pull your heads out and see the light.

Didn’t FlightSafety International carry disaster insurance on its building and contents? It should be able to collect damages from the company that caused the accident. Taxpayers should not have to provide corporate welfare benefits again.
“Ad astra per aspera” is the state motto of Kansas. I think it needs to be changed. I promote this motto: “Not knowing is acceptable. Not thinking isn’t.”

Tell me again why we got rid of Gene Stephenson? Bill Snyder came back, didn’t he?
Stephenson’s WSU baseball record, when he was fired, was 39-28 and WSU was the MVC Tournament champ. Last year the team was 31-28 and is currently 14-26. To athletic director Eric Sexton: When you fire a coach, it’s usually because you want the team to improve.
