Opinion: How long as a bystander to war?

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The first use of nuclear weapons occurred Aug. 6, 1945. The second occurred three days later. That there has not been a third is testimony to the skill and sobriety of 12 presidents and many other people, here and abroad.



Editorial: Expand diversion

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Douglas County should continue to look to expand diversion programs for nonviolent felony offenders as an alternative to incarceration, especially as the county weighs its options for jail expansion.



Opinion: Francisco Franco and the 2018 Republicans

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

To understand the discouraging plight for Republicans heading into the 2018 midterm elections, it might help to recall a joke popular in Spain in 1975, when Generalissimo Francisco Franco, that nation’s long-ruling and ruthless dictator, lingered for endless weeks on his deathbed.



Editorial: Tax lid protects taxpayers

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The law promotes efficiencies in government and is working as it was intended to work.



Opinion: Russia investigation not going away

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Based on what we know, it looks less and less likely that Donald Trump will complete his first term.



Opinion: Stop funding flawed voter verification

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Next month the 2018 Kansas Legislature begins its annual session. It will face a host of major issues, starting with school finance and including constructing a new prison, funding KPERS and addressing the endemic secrecy within state government, comprehensively documented by the Kansas City Star.



Opinion: The party of Lincoln has become the party of Trump

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

We need to prepare for the eventuality that the Mueller probe catches President Trump, family members and associates red-handed — and Republicans in Congress refuse to do anything about it.



Editorial: Depot project long overdue

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The community will benefit from the train station’s restoration.



Opinion: World economy defies predictions

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Boosting U.S. demand by increasing workers’ real wages would make this recovery as real and powerful at home as it seems to be abroad. If we’re really talking about making America great again, rebuilding middle-class incomes is where to start.



Editorial: Bond review warranted

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Tighter controls and better reporting are needed for Sales Tax and Revenue bond programs.



Opinion: Take Rosa Parks' name out of Trump’s mouth

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Donald Trump needs to take Rosa Parks’ name out of his lying mouth. He sullies it by speaking it.



Opinion: Republicans’ tax wager is worth the gamble

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The Republicans’ tax legislation is built on economic projections that are as confidently as they are cheerfully made concerning the legislation’s shaping effect on the economy over the next 10 years. This claim to prescience must amaze alumni of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, which were 85 and 158 years old, respectively, when they expired less than 10 years ago in the unanticipated Great Recession.



Editorial: Use caution on Design-Build

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Building projects without going through a traditional bidding process can be risky for the city.



Opinion: Can we prevent nuclear North Korea?

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The U.S.-North Korea confrontation is nearing another tense inflection point, with North Korea signaling that it could be ready for negotiations with Washington soon, even as it moves toward becoming a full nuclear-weapons power.



Editorial: Judicial diversity needs attention

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The lack of diversity among judges in Kansas is a concerning issue that state officials should make a priority to address in future judicial openings.



Opinion: How Trump lost his cover

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Dec. 1, 2017, will be remembered as the day when the vast majority of Americans fully grasped the consequences of the 2016 elections.



Opinion: Caribbean families are your fellow Americans

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

About a month after Hurricane Maria, I stopped at a UPS store to ask if it was still offering a discounted rate to ship supplies to St. Croix.



Editorial: Right site for police HQ

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The Lawrence Police Department’s recommended site for a new police headquarters makes sense and should be supported by the City Commission.



Opinion: GOP puts politics over fiscal policy

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

It’s important for us to remember that even though President Lyndon B. Johnson, a Democrat, successfully lobbied the nation and eventually signed into law the historic civil rights laws a half-century ago, a higher percentage of congressional Republicans than congressional Democrats voted for those bills.



Opinion: When is making a cake protected speech?

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The conversation about a cake lasted less than a minute but will long reverberate in constitutional law. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear 60 minutes of speech about when, if at all, making a cake counts as constitutionally protected speech and, if so, what the implications are for the Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s contention that Jack Phillips violated the state’s law against sexual-orientation discrimination.
