Two-thousand years ago the Romans were building canals and aqueducts from where the water was to where it was needed. Too bad we don’t have leaders who understand that concept.
For years the Republicans have preached the gospel of empowering local government. They support local government – except when they don’t.
Ironically, there are some KU grads who support special civil liberties for gays, but still harbor discriminatory language against neighboring college attendees.
The destruction of the WSU golf course to accommodate buildings and roads is forcing raccoons, opossums, woodchucks and birds to find shelter behind buildings and cars. It seems as if every day more trees are being cut down. What is the WSU Innovation Campus doing to protect the animals?
The fiberglass strewn over the fields from the April 3 storm needs to be collected and disposed of properly by the parties responsible. There are health-related problems to humans and animals from fiberglass.

Thanks to The Eagle for providing Wichita and surrounding areas with top-notch, up-to-date and nonbiased articles. I wake up to my Eagle every day.
