LETTER TO THE EDITOR. Emery Swaggerty, Liberal   I'd like to add my two cents to Robert Caraway's comments about mass shootings.   I'm sure he'll agree that gun-free zones are dumber than bringing a knife to a gunfight.  It's literally bringing a sign to a gunfight.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. Tony Whisenant, Liberal   In February and March of 2017, meetings were held at Mahuron Park concerning the changes that were made to the 6 Points Intersection, I won't call these changes improvements - because they weren't. Sunday morning, two young men lost...

MY PERSPECTIVE, Gary Damron   For four years I’ve been attending a men’s group that started reading through the Bible, a chapter or two a week. We’ve been in the Major Prophets for quite a while, and sometimes we discuss which prophet’s message applies to situations today.  Those...

A SECOND OPINION, The Kansas City Star   This is the undocumented immigrant our nation should welcome: the Lawrence chemist whom immigration officials attempted to deport this year, much to the dismay of his family, neighbors and even strangers who came to know the story of Syed...

A SECOND OPINION, The Wichita Eagle   Kris Kobach thinks fewer dollars should be spent on public education in Kansas. What’s more, he thinks some of that smaller amount should sometimes be spent at private schools. That’s not the way it should work. But if he’s elected governor, it may...

GUEST COLUMN, Dick Morris   Voters who have moved away and those who are deceased may provide a solid core of Democrat votes in many key states. Because most states do not have efficient or effective ways of purging their voter rolls when people leave the area or pass away, the names stay...
