There has been so much negativity about the Johnson County computer systems that I’d love to share some good news.
What in the world are the people in our government thinking? They want to give a break to 11 million illegal immigrants.
The Board of Commissioners of Wyandotte Countys Unified Government will send a terrible message Thursday night if members seat a commissioner who has failed to pay property taxes on time.
This matter strikes especially close to the heart of Kansas City. With more than 100 murders a year for the last five years, the city has gained a reputation for having one of Americas highest murder rates.
A new report by the Mid-America Regional Council gives Kansas Citians a good look at whether their total transportation system is safe, good for the environment and cost-effective. The study reveals theres plenty of room for improvement.
The Kansas Legislature went to great lengths to pass inane pro-gun laws in its recently concluded session. And Gov. Sam Brownback is naively signing them. Unfortunately, these bills could have actual negative effects on the people of Kansas.
The American Medical Association voted at its annual policy meeting in Chicago on limiting how the caffeinated beverages are sold to people younger that 18. However, dont expect the makers of the products to go down without a fight.
Teachers searching for a writing assignment for their summer school students and parents needing to give their kids something engaging to do should focus on Nikita, one of two polar bears at the Kansas City Zoo. The star of the zoo isnt feeling too well.
Missouri Education Commissioner Chris Nicastro is to be applauded for getting out in front with guidelines for student transfers from unaccredited districts. The Missouri legislature could have resolved the ambiguities in its transfer statute years ago, but chose to let the courts and state bureaucrats hash it out.
Good for Jennifer Kerr. The Jackson County mom has won a huge verdict from a jury that was properly outraged by Kerrs story of being deceived by the promises and practices of a for-profit college.
Kris Kobach is a menace to the passage of reasonable and necessary changes to immigration law. But Kobach is also a father and a husband. There is no condoning the actions of the nearly 300 people who stomped onto his private property Saturday for a protest.
People are confused about what constitutes self-defense. What many people term self-defense is really just the last act in an argument gone out of control, a situation that escalates until one or both parties reach for a gun.
Readers have been watching coverage of a protest at the home of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach carefully. But no two people see things the same way.
A man convicted of sexually abusing two young girls this week was also formerly a Cub Scout leader. That detail angered at least one reader.
Kansas voters elected a conservative Republican governor and a conservative Republican-controlled legislature. Together, they were to be a juggernaut. Something has gone terribly amiss. They are not at all of one mind.
Eric Holders controversies are distracting a nation, which should be focusing on key issues, such as the economy, health care and immigration. The U.S. attorney general would be doing his president and the nation a great favor by tendering his resignation sooner, rather than later.
Conservatives who favor federal wars on drugs, gambling and other behaviors should understand the damage they have done to the constitutional underpinnings of limited government.
To all state and regional Internal Revenue Service managers: As a result of the critical government report about our agencys 2010 convention in Anaheim, Calif., the following changes are being implemented immediately.
Corruption, influence peddling and outright bribery are as alive and well in American politics today as they have ever been. The settings have certainly changed. And the actors look a little different today. But the overall story remains the same.
Americans by nature are private people. What we do, how we live and our opinions are not for public viewing by anyone and especially not by the government. One sec…I’ve got to take a poll on Facebook to see what I should cook for dinner tonight.
Kansans will pay significantly less in taxes in 2013 than they did in 2012, and the savings will grow from there, even as the state spends billions annually on core responsibilities such as education, roads and Medicaid, writes Nick Jordan, secretary of the Kansas Department of Revenue.
As Congress debates bipartisan immigration reform and following a law enforcement briefing on immigration reform recently at the White House, it is clearer than ever that immigration reform will make our communities safer, writes Robert Stephan, a former Kansas attorney general. Now is the time for reform.
