NO LOCAL CONTROL

By Linda Mowery-Denning
 
Those of us who are old-school enough to still use a dictionary can strike one phrase from its pages. “Local control” is pretty much dead in Kansas, the victim of Gov. Brownback and lawmakers who follow the same treacherous political path.

TRANSPARENCY

By Linda Mowery-Denning
 
Several years ago, when Kansas Legislators started talking about removing public notices from the state’s newspapers and allowing cities, counties and school boards to place them on websites — any website — we thought the idea was so obviously flawed it didn’t stand a chance of passage.

Fending off Winter

By "The Comboy" Jim Gray 

The first snow of fall 1881 arrived across Kansas, Thursday, Nov. 10. The day began with a steady rain that continued into the afternoon. The massive system stretched from New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming across Nebraska to northeast Kansas. Western Kansas and a good portion of northern Kansas were in its path. Prairie residents took a long and anguished deep breath with that first storm, fearing a repeat of the previous winter. That winter also came early, beginning in the fall of 1880, and continuing into 1881.

Protect your interests

By Jerry Marsh

I thought Jared Bernstein, noted pundit on economic policy, offered the best assessment of the recent October jobs report: “a few months of decent average wage growth at freakishly low inflation does not make up for decades of inequality, wage stagnation, and the huge, persistent gap between productivity growth and the typical worker’s pay.” The Federal Reserve is under increasing pressure to set aside its concern for the plight of American workers and raise interest rates, action which could well pull the rug from under workers at a point in time when they might be finally making some real progress.
