Seward County Community College President Brad Bennett will host a legislative lunch at 11:30 a.m. Monday on the SCCC campus. Legislators and elected officials from Liberal, Seward County, and the Southwest Kansas region were invited to visit the home of the Saints, and more than 30 are expected to attend.

“This is a way for us to connect with legislators who are always busy and want to remain in touch with their constituents, who are also our shareholders,” said Bennett. “SCCC is a community college — we exist for our community, we serve it, and we enhance so many projects that legislators are working on. So it’s a high priority for us to cultivate those relationships.”

Bennett said the event will provide an opportunity for SCCC representatives to showcase the college’s signature programs and new developments, and to answer questions. Representatives from USD 480, the City of Liberal, and Seward County administration will also participate.

“It’s been a long time since people could meet face to face for these kinds of events, and we’re really excited to host this on campus,” he said.

Opinion

Kevin McCarthy, a Republican leader for complex times

GUEST COLUMN, Star Parker

 

Republicans are rightly wondering what to expect from the upcoming House of Representatives controlled by their party.

Conservatives are chomping at the bit to move a hardcore conservative agenda.

My own beliefs and convictions are known. We need dramatic change to pull the nation out of its fiscal, cultural and moral chaos.

But the phrase the “art of politics” didn’t come from nowhere. Politics is indeed an art — the art of knowing what can be done and when.

Even the great conservative icon Ronald Reagan was sometimes not bold. He nominated Sandra Day O’Connor and Anthony Kennedy to the Supreme Court. O’Connor gave us the decision that preserved the use of race and ethnicity in university admissions policy that only now may be overturned.

Anthony Kennedy wrote the opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges that legalized same-sex marriage.

Reagan appointed Alan Greenspan in 1982 to oversee a commission to address the fiscal problems of Social Security. That commission produced reforms keeping the existing system intact and raising taxes. Certainly not what any good conservative should do.
