Olathe businessman Greg Orman says he has enough signatures to appear on the Kansas ballot as an independent candidate for the U.S. Senate. Orman says his campaign has collected more than 10,000 signatures. He says that number shows many Kansans are tired of the current political system.
"Kansans are looking for an option, they're looking for an alternative. They want people who are problem solvers, not just engaged in the old partisan fighting. They want problem solvers, and I think that’s the message of our campaign,” says Orman.
A co-worker of mine recently registered her displeasure with the term “the 30,000-foot view.”
The 30,000-foot view is meant to invoke a sense of the big picture, to show how a situation might look from 30,000 feet in the air. The attempt here seems admirable: we do sometimes lose sight of the big picture when we get bogged down in the details.

A new report from the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services says Kansans on Medicare will save more than $10 million dollars this year on prescription drugs, with a lesser-known provision in the Affordable Care Act.
You probably know about the mandate to buy health insurance, the glitches in the federal exchange, and the Supreme Court challenges to the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
But did you know that the health care law also helps Medicare beneficiaries who pay high out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs?
The University of Kansas has been added to a list of colleges and universities under investigation for how they handled investigations into sexual assaults.
Seventy-one schools nation-wide, including Washburn University in Topeka, have been named by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights as part of a probe into sexual violence against women on campus.
University of Kansas officials have issued a statement saying the school does not tolerate sexual assault and will assist in the federal review.
Florida’s Roadkill Ghost Choir releases its new album In Tongues next month but the band is already on the road in support of the record. In some ways that’s fitting as songwriter and vocalist Andrew Shepard explains. Many of the lyrics are about coming to grips with life as a touring musician.
“There’s definitely a few themes that all the songs—or most of the songs are connected by," he says. "Being on the road for most of the year. Being away from your family and friends and stuff. There’s definitely a sense of loneliness or trying to figure out what home is.”
While Europe teetered on the brink of war during the summer of 1914, the threat of escalating violence and warfare with Mexico consumed Americans’ attentions.
The relationship between the United States and Mexico began to sour in 1910 as Mexico fell into a decade-long civil war. Until 1914, the U.S. warned Mexico that it would only get involved if the fighting threatened the lives or property of Americans living in Mexico. Twice, President Taft sent troops to the border as a warning, but did not allow them to intervene in the conflict.
Members of the media photograph evidence that the jury will view during its deliberations, in a Sedgwick County courtroom in Wichita, Kan., Thursday afternoon, Oct. 31, 2002, in the murder trial of Jonathan and Reginald Carr. After emotional closing arguments from prosecutors, jurors began deliberations late Thursday in the trial of the two brothers accused of a nine-day crime spree that left five people dead.
The selection process of Kansas Supreme Court justices is likely to come under scrutiny after last week’s decision. The court overturned death sentences in the Wichita Carr Brothers case.
Last Friday the Kansas Supreme Court overturned three of the four capital sentences each for Jonathan and Reginald Carr. The brothers were convicted in 2002 of four gruesome murders committed in Wichita December of 2000. The death sentences were sought for reasons which include the facts that the murders were multiple and that the killings involved sex crimes.
