Re: “Why is a new, no-kill animal shelter still sitting empty in Independence?

Independence animal shelter-may as well take your dog from there straight to the vet because it's going to have parvo! And don't use the vet on the south side of 23rd street, I took my dog there and requested an IV because he was dehydrated from vomiting. They did NOTHING-and my dog died. {they did not want to go to the trouble of sanitizing the room afterwards-they isolated him and LET HIM DIE a horrible death)It really broke my heart. I feel like I let my best buddy down because I trusted a vet to do what he was supposed to do and I went to work. It was Three Trails Animal shelter-I would suggest another vet that actually cares about LIFE.

Screw you Three Trails animal hospital! I hope the place burns down and you all die.

Re: “"Right to farm" doesn't mean farming right. Far from it

Since "corporations are people, my friend," it doesn't take an attorney from the Revisor's Office to figure out what this boondoggle is all about.

Intensive hog and chicken farming polluting groundwater, streams and rivers? Too bad, so sad. It's Tyson and Farmland's "right" to farm.

GMO crops cross-pollinating the neighbors corn field? Monsanto has a "right" to farm and protect their patents by suing the neighbor for "theft".

These are just a couple of examples of the potential here to strip the EPA and State agencies of any power to regulate big agra and their environmentally unsound farming practices.

All cleverly disguised in another empty political soundbite that appeals to warm and fuzzy traditional values. Another big corporate Trojan Horse.

I mean, after all, who would vote against the right of good old Ma and Pa to work their 40 acres and the mule drawn plow?

More corporate lies and BS.

Don't fall for it.

Great article. My favorite line: "...I high-fived my raft mates and decided to stress-eat a funnel cake."

Insane, and awesome!

To simplify, if Monsanto is for it, vote NO.

Re: “"Right to farm" doesn't mean farming right. Far from it

Of note to getting this on the ballot is Missouri Sen. Kiki Curls from the 9th district.

In the Missouri records, Ms. Curls was originally against this amendment when it was being argued. However it was Ms Curl's single vote that changed and got it onto the ballot after several failed votes in the Senate. Now the PAC Ms Curls is aligned with, Freedom Inc, has distributed a flier in several local media sources supporting a "yes" vote on this amendment. So what changed? Why did a Senator representing an almost entirely urban district suddenly get interested in farming? Looking at campaign disclosure records could it be the paid for trip to Israel by biotech groups? Was it the dinners paid for by Monsanto and other Ag groups? Was it all the jobs it will create for the 9th district? I guess we'll never know. But I fail to see why this amendment would do anything to help the 9th district.

If this passes her district can look forward to relief from the "food desert" by more processed food as a source of nutrition in an area known for higher rates of heart disease and diabetes.

Re: “"Right to farm" doesn't mean farming right. Far from it

The Family Farmer has replaced The Noble Savage, a myth perpetuated into fact.

This law would give more protection to the puppy mills, the factory farms and the plow-it-then-put-it-in-CRPers.

Like laws which exempt those fracking from having to tell people what chemicals they are pumping into the ground, this will keep illegal and questionable practices in agriculture from being exposed. Keeping the perps safe, comfy and profitable.

It's a corn-and-soybean-ghetto in the Heartland and the family farmer died when Joe Leuter was able to ignore the Packers and Standards law and turn hog farmers into janitors.

Re: “In Kansas City, celebrity UFO-filmer Stan Romanek finds an audience of believers — and one reporter

In the year 2000 I believe it was I saw an internet video of someone running up a very rocky road to get footage of a ufo flying above some telephone/electric wires with a very erratic flight pattern and making a huge noise like some VERY powerful generator going off. It looked very much like the real deal to me and I discovered later that UFO Magazine had run a story on it and it's editor tried to get UFOs The Best Evidence Caught On Tape producer Robert Kiviat to put on his follow up show, but said that "it was too shaky to air" The video has since disappeared from the internet. It turns out that it was the same craft that was talked about in Stan's book Messages and he said at a ufo conference that he never got a video of the craft, but I know I saw it for sure and I'm pretty sure it was Stan that took it also he says that it was the same craft that is in the Nellis AFB video and it does make the same noise because you can hear it briefly for a few seconds at 1:43 http://youtu.be/a0hMlWXlAHg I would sure like to know why the video has disappeared.

Re: “Joy Biggs watched her sister die in a jail cell over an ounce of pot

They should not have been in jail in the first place over pot ! How in the world did things come to this? I can not believe in America a woman who stuck her 6 yr. old son with Downs Syndrome in the attic and was starving him to death and was within hours of succeeding when police found him could only be given a prison sentence of 8 1/2 yrs. That was the max the judge could give her under Kansas law and we have 21 people doing life sentences for pot. Sure it was more than the sisters had on them but it is pot!! A victimless crime. Goodland needs to drop this and stop making a spectacle out of their city and asses out of themselves.

Cheryl, you might also ask your instructors to explain the difference between hard news and a feature, and the different expectations for the two.

Cheryl, as a journalism student, you should be aware most journalists don't write their own headlines. That's typically the purview of the copy editors or layout folks.

Re: “Paul Davis is the quiet turtle vying to unseat hare-brained Gov. Sam Brownback

You know I don't like a lot of what Brownback has done, but your headline should not have called him hare-brained. I am not impressed with the way you write. I am a journalism education major. Headlines should not express opinions. Just let the facts state the obvious. Writers on the web, especially, do not seem to have learned ANY journalism writing skills at all.

Re: “No Contest

When I was young I went to this same doctor for years, and know his family as well. I married a well educated health care professional (as am I) and had her go to Dr. Culp in the late 1980s. She came home upset & angry but would not tell me much, other than she would never go back. Years later, after the conviction, she told me that Culp had been very inappropriate with her. She said she didn't tell me at the time because she was afraid I would go shoot him. While I didn't have that kind of animosity towards him, I do want mention that there are two sides to Dr. Culp. I find my wife 100% credible.
