It's sad that HINU's graduation rate is only 24% (one source says 15%) while KU's is 61%. I suppose many students get homesick or they come ill-prepared for college life.

They have said they are going to build it in phases and not build the mental health crisis center. Plus, they said they will slash social services funding. I bet money is found to complete the mental health center, even if the County doesn't chip in.

The Power Elite (land speculators, developers, bankers, et al) and social service industry have pulled out all of the big guns to ensure this passes. I was predicting it would pass by a 55 to 45 margin, now I'm thinking it will pass 60-40.

Great letter. She hit the nail on the head.

I don't think the City pays all full-time employees $12.99/hour. They could also require that all entities that receive grants or contracts pay a living wage.

All he has to do is send a letter to those convicted of domestic battery a letter informing them of the law and how to turn in their firearms. That's not too hard to do if it saves a life, right?

Sensible law. After all there is a power differential between police officers and citizens they detain. There is also a law prohibiting teachers from having sex with students even if the student is of age. It doesn't apply to college instructors and students.

The constitutional amendment requiring that the "legislature shall make suitable provi-sion for finance of the educational interests of the state" was passed in a special session of the legislature in November, 1966. I'm sure that the legislature was controlled by Republicans then.

What about those who are executed but it is later found out they were innocent? Unless the US Supreme Court finds the death penalty to be cruel and unusual punishment, Kansas could resume executions in the next few years. Ten are currently on death row in Leavenworth and some must be exhausting their appeals. There are also five on death row in the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks (USDB) at Fort Leavenworth which has an execution chamber.

Free State has a loyal following and has been in business for 30 years, so I don't think Black Stag (not a very good name) will siphon off customers.
