I-70/K-7 interchange approved for T-WORKS funding

Am I reading this wrong? Does it mean that one single intersection will get $70 million in improvements? Isn't this an interesection that was just recently (within the last several years) renovated? Meanwhile, Brownback continues to cut money to our schools which has resulted in people losing their jobs and the services to our kids will decrease even more? Someone, please correct me if I am reading this wrong.

ELECTION CENTRAL: School bond issue soundly defeated; Peak, Bixby elected to council; Becker to join school board

The vote has taken place and the system as it stands is that the bond did not pass. Everyone must accept this and as the no votes have stated in these forums the school district must live with the budget cuts handed down by the State and will have have to learn to live on less. So, with that being said, as the school district begins to make cuts to services for students, jobs, etc. REMEMBER nay-sayers "the schools must learn to make use of what they have". Don't want to see any of you in future forums complaining of the cuts the school district has had to make. When you go to enroll your kids don't be rude to the district employees that are working there because you don't like the cuts they have to enforce. They are having to go by what you the voters decided...."to make do with what they have" after all they are just the messenger, you decided.

DUI citation issued during weekend sobriety checkpoint in Tonganoxie

I applaude the police department for this. Yes, it was only one person, however, that one person driving while imparied could have caused a serious accident thus injuring or even killing innocent people.

Okay, i'll play along. Wait five years. Sometime during the third year the elementary school because so worn that the roof falls in on the kindergarten wing. Out of the 120 students housed in that area 45 are dead, 25 critically injured, and multiple others have less severe injuries. What are you kansasjayhawk going to say to the parents of those dead children. "Sorry, your child wasn't worth $10 a month out of my pocket". Or worse, what if the child were yours?

2011 elections brings blight to city's agenda

I think it's funny that we are talking about keeping things nice and beautiful, taking pride in our community, etc., but we can have a moble home park for a school in what could be a beautiful downtown. How attractive is that?

So when does the planning begin for the next bond election? I think we should start now while all the fresh ideas are still on the plate. I'll come. Will you?

I am sad to read that many voted NO because previous bond money was not spent wisely or parking lots weren't fixed right the first time. I agree with ONLY1 in the fact that we have all new administrators. You can't blame them for everything the previous administration did. If you divorced your spouse and married someone else, would you blame them for the things your ex did to crumble the previous marriage? Let's all learn from this, move on and suck it up when it costs us twice as much in the future to do what we wanted to do today.

City traffic engineers find new school would overload intersections past acceptable levels

Sorry, guess that should read "parents need to slow down".

I have a solution.....parents need to slow day, pay attention, and be patient. Unless there is a Tongie cop sitting on Washington Street, parents fly through there, speed humps and all. Plan ample time to pick your child up and get to your next destination. The extra two or three minutes this may take is certainly worth someone not getting hurt (or worse) over.
