One good way to get rid of a small neighborhood library is to underfund it, then claim that it just isn’t feasible to keep it open. Forget those who may use the library to read periodicals or use the computers. Just use the number of books checked out as the singular gauge.
I love the Big Ditch flyover at 13th Street. It saves a lot of time. But why did they have to put those huge bumps where sections meet? For $35 million, couldn’t they make it a smooth road for at least a couple of months?
Never miss a local story.
If you want to see inefficiency in progress, go to the tag office on Maize Road. No one should have to wait three hours for service.
The most intriguing high school football matchup that we will never get to see, Andale versus Bishop Carroll. Congratulations to both teams on their undefeated seasons.
The “civilized” half of the state got their pompous behinds handed to them on a silver platter, didn’t they? Did you notice it was tattooed 51-13? Go, K-State!
What a relief to see after the K-State-KU game that Gov. Sam Brownback at least so far hasn’t found himself compelled to pawn the Governor’s Cup to help make up for the state’s budget deficit that he only just found out about.
Brownback says the budget shortfall caught him by surprise? That shows total incompetence. Can we impeach a governor? If so, how do we start the process?
The people griping about the state’s $279 million shortfall probably voted for our current president. I wonder if they really know what they are talking about, with all the money he has blown on stupid stuff.
Elizabeth Lauten should “try showing a little class” and not make negative comments about anybody’s daughters on Facebook. I’m glad she resigned.
From the president on down, recent race relations have been set back 40 years. Blacks especially seem to have been fitted with “discrimination glasses,” so that’s what they sincerely see.
Instead of spending millions of dollars to get a ball through a basket, all colleges in America should be working for a solution to the absence of fathers in families. This is the main cause of poverty, poor performance in school, gangs and crime.
With the worst of the holiday shopping underway, please remember that retail workers are only human – stressed, frazzled, often mistreated humans.
