I wonder if there was much outcry when LMH shut down their mental health ward?

"A yes vote on Proposition 1 would authorize a countywide half-cent sales tax increase, which would fund a $44 million expansion of the county jail, an $11 million behavioral health campus and $5.1 in additional behavioral health service" Again they make it sound as if the sales tax will pay for it all and yet in earlier articles it states and increase in property taxes will be needed. Maybe next time they should try being more honest so voters can trust them. Final count isn't in yet though, it not over till it's over.

They were going to go up anyway. The sales tax only covered a portion. A yes vote included sales tax AND an increase in property taxes. They just kept that part in the shadows.

Except it will still involve a property tax increase. It will not be built with just a sales tax increase.

A few years back my daughter's car door window was smashed in. KU police insisted it shattered because of the heat, a car door window. To top it off, all the broken glass was on the inside of the car. Thus it was not recorded as a crime, creative way to keep those crime statistics down.

The high schools already have one late start day once a week. Are there less students tardy or absent on those days? Are they more alert in class those days. The numbers are there, has anyone looked. What impact will this have on elementary students that will be walking to and from school at the same time? As it is now, teenage drivers are usually already in class by the time the younger kids start walking to school. I am not against the late start but have experienced first hand the problems teenage drivers cause when school starts later. By the way, a lot of them do not stop for crossing guards or pedestrians.

Ha, ha, have a couple of dozen rifles and guns. I am not afraid of them. I am afraid of upset people using them to kill innocent victims.

No, but combined with modifying the draft, it gave millions the right to live. Both sides need to make concessions. An 18 year old does not need an AK-15. Maybe gun ranges could rent them out to use at the range for young people to shoot. May not be an option but just trying to show that maybe solutions can be found if we give it some thought.

I can't help but be reminded of the Viet Nam war demonstrations. Started by young people who didn't want to die in war that had been going on for almost 20 years. How long would that war have gone one if the young people affected the most had not stood up and said "enough is enough"

Come on KU, cancel the afternoon classes. I know you have to have classes for half a day to get some sort of funding for that day, but is it worth it. There are a few professors that will hold it against you if you miss a class so there are some students that will try to go unless cancelled.
