Before the Legislature raises our taxes to make up for Brownback’s failed economic plan, perhaps it should make an effort to collect past-due property taxes from the scofflaws listed in Thursday’s Eagle. Do it statewide.
I hear we have state employees who are considered nonessential. If they are nonessential, why were they hired in the first place?

A reader whining about homeowners’ associations sounded like someone who didn’t read everything he signed at closing, including the agreement to abide by HOA covenants. If you want to disregard your neighbors’ rights to live peacefully, you have the option of moving. Your neighbors will probably help you pack.
