Open Carry has been legal in Kansas since the Wild West cowboy days. I think I would rather know who is packing. There was a story that someone yelled "gun" in a crowded theater and then several people jumped up and pulled out their handguns looking for the threat.

Senate Minority Leader Schumer said the $2 trillion give-away to fat cats will amount to $17,000 for everyone who makes less than $200,000. The $1.2 trillion plan approved by Obama and then ratified by Trump to "upgrade" the nuclear arsenal (warheads, missiles and delivery systems) over ten years will amount to $15,500 for every person who pays federal income taxes.

Missouri has a law requiring judges to release defendants upon their own personal recognizance unless they are flight risk or danger to others. This would keep a lot out of jail because they can't afford a modest bond.

I prefer Pelathe as well. Thorpe would be second.

If you have to be 21 to buy alcohol, why not an equally hazardous product such as tobacco? Douglas County also needs to raise the minimum age to 21 because there are some businesses just outside of the city limits that are likely to begin selling cigarettes. I remember when a friend would buy cigarettes at age 16 from a vending machine in a laundromat.

I remember when the City got cited several times by KDHE for dumping pollutants from the City water treatment plant into the river. It took them years to stop doing it. I recall seeing that chalky milky effluent going into the river.

Deborah, Environment Impact Assessments and Statements are only done if there is federal money or land involved. Some cities require them for major projects, but Lawrence doesn't. It should.

Gee, 100 new employees will have to be hired to run the addition. Can't they keep more people out of jail by releasing most people on personal recognizance? In MIssouri judges are required to release suspects on personal recognizance unless they are flight risk or potential danger to others. Also, they could use ankle bracelets a lot more.

"In modern times, some states that allow initiatives and referendums have learned to regret it, in part because "the people" who try to use that process to their advantage tend to be the same well-heeled special interest groups who stalk the halls of statehouses but who use the public vote process when traditional legislative efforts are unsuccessful."
Not really true: There are far more progressive initiatives that are approved by voters than those pushed by corporations.
