Thank ya', thank ya' very much. Elvis has left the building, the planet, shuffled off this mortal coil, moved on to a different, if not higher, plain. But though he's gone, he's not forgotten, not even in Budapest. Mr. The Pelvis is being named an honorary Hungarian - no jokes about fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, please - and they are going to name some stuff after him, according to the Associated Press. "Budapest's ...
You can always tell when things are getting desperate in America. They bring out the celebrities.
David Henderson, a Korean War veteran long suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, applied 15 days past the deadline for enhanced care under a 2001 veterans-benefits law and thus was, as required by the statute, disqualified from the additional benefits.
This was going to be an editorial reflecting on the mess Charlie Sheen has made of his life and career, but he's become such an embarrassment to himself that it really doesn't bear comment any longer.
Ben Franklin said that to call an American an Englishman was like calling an ox a bull - he appreciates the compliment, but he'd rather have back what is rightfully his.
Allen Shamblin and Steve Seskin wrote the incredible song, "Don't Laugh at Me" in the '90s after Shamblin's daughter came home from school, upset because the kids were teasing her because she had freckles.
There's an old saying that suggests plan A is always easier than plan B. While it's intended to warn us against procrastination, because what you are faced with when you put off your duty will not be as easy as facing responsibilities today, it also speaks to those who are unwilling to face the financial realities that are facing taxpayers today. While local governments have had to deal with these issues for years, at the ...
Anyone who still remembers late Tribune Managing Editor Bob Fairbanks will remember that he was "Mr. Republican."
It's something that states are going to have to address, and that socially conscious "consumers" are going to have to not only accept, but promote if they ever hope to legitimize their drug of choice.
Kansas doesn't have enough issues to be address by our state legislature - job loss, brain drain, the necessity of cutting back the size of state government, the need to stop unfunded mandates aimed at counties, and at our property tax rates - so, since it's such a quiet season in Topeka, they've apparently decided to discuss whether there can or cannot be controls on people's lives that bring into the debate religious ethics versus homosexuality.
Kansas Rep. Connie O'Brien told the media this week that she "understands how her words could have been misconstrued."
American didn't know just how lucky they were. According to our sage national gurus, Americans don't have inflation. Not so, the rest of the world. Across most of the world - just NOT in America, remember - they are having problems with (sorry, for the dirty word) inflation. Yes, unlike America where all that good, quality, low calorie, high fiber, federally-approved diet is cheaper than ever, the rest of the world is facing food inflation. ...
Eventually, things could turn bad for Natalie Munroe, but for right now you've got to suppose she's in tall cotton.
It is time for Kansas to think outside the box. Let's face it, we can't afford to do anything else. We have the talent in this state to address problems without bankrupting our taxpayers - even worse than we already have - and still address problems. Take the feral hog problem. You may not have realized that we even have a feral hog problem, but we do, at least in part of the state. Since ...
So many people today just don't have the gumption that is needed to succeed in this old world.
Father's Day was founded in 1910 in Spokane, Wash., by Sonora Smart Dodd. Its first celebration was in the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910. Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who raised his six children there. After hearing a sermon about Jarvis' Mother's Day in 1909, she told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. Despite support from President Woodrow Wilson, there was ...
The Military District of Washington issued a statement concerning Master Sgt. Nathan Sommers, a 25-year veteran of the U.S. Army Band.
Edward Snowden's "crime," was warning his fellow Americans about a secret spy program conducted by his own government.
The Common Core standards are being talked about a lot these days. The Common Core is simply a set of educational standards that are the same from state to state and are designed for students to be career ready when they graduate from high school. They are reasonable and make sense. The state legislature should let the state school board decide what is best for students.
Enjoy your tax cut, Kansans.
Breastfeeding is a normal and natural function and, since the beginning of time, has allowed human beings to get a good start on life. Not only are infants fed the healthiest milk designed for their bodies, they develop their first relationship.
This is my prayer for Jonah Turner.
