Final Fridays organizers envision full-time city position to promote arts

If the investment in a single employee generates more than that position costs in both money spent and jobs created in the community then its worth it.

Failed summer reads

Ms. Hall, your brief tale of war and peace in the family while reading War and Peace is really a good story that begs to be a bit more detailed. Your assignment for the rest of this summer? Flesh that out into a short story...even a short short story. I know you can do it. In less than two years!!

Babboy...have you ever read any Rumpole of the Bailey? A bit work related perhaps, but light and very humorous stories about a reluctant barrister in Her Queen's court.

'Falling backwards': Lawrence artists react to Kansas Arts Commission closing

This is a must read letter. The losses to the state will be MUCH higher than a piddling 29 cents per year per taxpayer.

The KDWP is a STATE AGENCY. Who do you think pays the salaries of the 420 people employed by the agency??

Fisheries and Wildlife

This division provides the technical expertise to manage fish , wildlife , and public land resources in the state. The Investigations, Inventory, and Management sections evaluate fish and wildlife populations, conduct research, monitor environmental conditions, improve wildlife habitats, survey recreationists, and recommend adjustments in fish and wildlife regulations. The Fish Culture Section produces and stocks millions of sportfish in waters across the state each year. The Public Lands Section manages department lands for optimum wildlife habitat, as well as recreational opportunities for hunters, anglers, birdwatchers, and hikers.

I agree. As an artist, a parent and a frequent consumer of arts programming, I find this situation to be outrageous. But it has more to do with Brownback making an opening salvo and showing that he has no intention of listening to anyone outside of his small circle of friends and his fellow GOP governors across the country that are acting as a unified and coordinated force for providing the total corporatization of our country. That is the trend he's talking about.

Lets see what happens in the Wisconsin recall elections...which the Republican leadership has been caught red handed trying to sabotage.
