A SECOND OPINION, The Kansas Policy Institute   An Open Records request fulfilled by the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System (KPERS) shows record-setting payouts in 2017 of $1.64 billion.   The number of KPERS ‘millionaires’ also set a new record, with 2,334 government...

GUEST COLUMN, John Schlageck, Kansas Farm Bureau   Seems Kansas farmers and ranchers are always doing something in their fields, grassland and on our public roads. No matter where you travel in our state you’ll probably wind up approaching farm tractors, trucks and other large ag...

A SECOND OPINION, The Kansas City Star   The Trump administration is all too willing to cut Medicaid benefits and the number of people receiving them. They've signaled this for one thing by allowing states to end retroactive eligibility and to impose work requirements. Their overall...

GUEST COLUMN, Dick Morris   What if Bobby Kennedy survived Sirhan Sirhan’s shot in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel on June 5, 1968? What if he went on to challenge Vice President Hubert Humphrey and Sen. Eugene McCarthy for the Democratic presidential nomination? What if the eventual...

A SECOND OPINION, The Lawrence Journal-World   The Kansas House was right to reject income tax breaks in its last act of the session. It wouldn't be prudent for the state to implement tax cuts until after the Kansas Supreme Court has ruled that the state's proposal for K-12 spending is...

GUEST COLUMN, Walter V. Wendler, President OF West Texas A&M University   There are significant relationships between education and citizenship. I am, before anything else, a professor—a teacher. I work to provide students the opportunity to learn. For me, this...

GUEST COLUMN, Larry Phillips, Kismet   I heard some people didn’t like me calling President Obama a racist. Funny, I don’t remember asking permission to tell the truth. He’s a proven racist – proven multiple times when he interjected himself into racial incidents and was proven wrong by...
