So business owners may have to pay taxes at the same rate of the lowest bracket for wage earners. Really. Couldn’t they pay just a little more than poor folk? Oh, I forgot – they are used to paying nothing.
Legislators in Topeka should know we will be taking names of everyone who votes to raise taxes instead of cutting spending. Voters can easily find replacements for these representatives at the next election.

Dear family and friends: You sent me your child’s graduation announcement. I either sent a check or gift card. Not a note in the mail or a phone call so far. Please teach your children some manners. “Thank you” never goes out of style.
Riverfest? When did we get too lazy to say “River Festival”? I suppose it would really stress us out to call it by its original name: the Wichitennial River Festival.
