I was reading where the Junior College was going to cut programs. Most of those programs the teachers teach students outside of the programs. So when they cut the programs, they cut teaching and that's what college is all about, is teaching. When they're making cuts, I think they ought to cut the administrators.

I attended, and I didn't hear an administrator offer up to take a cut in pay or to freeze their salaries. Come January, they get a pretty nice, hefty salary raise. While us, the poor people, taxpayers, you're asking us to take a big pay cut, tax increase so you can have another building? It's got to be two-way here.
I was noticing in the Daily Globe how much a person's going to pay if their home is worth a $100,000, have to pay almost $12 extra a month. Look, that's not fair. That's not fair at all. Raise the state tax. Everybody'll have to pay it then. It shouldn't just be the homeowners that have to pay. You're driving them out of their homes.
Last time I looked, the date was November the 20, and I can't believe the radio station in Dodge City has begun already playing Christmas music. That's just a little early.
I wish people would stop comparing Michelle Obama to Jackie Kennedy. Jackie would never had worn that red and black horror that Michelle wore when her husband made his victory speech.
To the person who wanted stop signs at every corner: If I remember my driver's manual correctly, when two cars meet at an unmarked cross roads, the car on the right has the right of way.
I'd like to comment on the two new coal-generating plants Sunflower Electric is trying to get permission built in Finney County. Those of you who are adamant about letting them built should spend a day in Garden City or Holcomb and witness the sickly, yellow-gray sky from the emissions from just one plant. For two new plants, multiply this by three. Go ahead and try to convince me how healthy this is for all of us. Here's a good idea: Build one new plant next to John Martin Dam in Colorado, use their water to make their electricity. Think about it: Much closer to coal mines, much closer to water, much closer to end customers.
This is in response to the person that called in on Thursday, Nov. 20, about no stop signs and not knowing what to do. If you have a valid Kansas driver's license, you would know that at an uncontrolled intersection, you yield to oncoming traffic from your right.
When I was a kid, I liked to go to movies all the time. I could afford it, and my parents could afford it. I was wondering if there was any reason why, when we go to the movies nowadays, it costs so ungodly much that a family can't go. Don't think it would be better to charge two or three dollars a head and so a whole family could go, and you'd have lots of people in there to watch the movies instead of just a few?
More coal plants might bring more revenue into our state. But at what cost to our atmosphere? Money isn't everything. I value clean air over the almighty dollar.
Saturday morning, about 5:20, I'm sitting here watching CNN News. It's a deal on gang members. These gang members think they're bad, tough and want to do all these things. Why don't they join the Marines? Let's go to Afghanistan, let's go to Iraq, let's see how brave and tough you are. Don't claim you have a family or nothing. You get into a family with the military type. This will become a new type of family. Maybe it will change your outlook on life if you think it's so cool to kill. Go over there and see what it's really like to get shot and fight. You'd be good people in the military, get us off our street.
Today is Thanksgiving. Take time to count your blessings. I have many things to be thankful for, I bet you do too. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
This is to our city leaders: With our economic meltdown and two casinos backing out of gambling contracts, maybe our prospective building projects should be put on hold for the time being.
This is for the person who needs an explanation for unmarked intersections: You need to report to the DMV and surrender your license.
Wow, I just thought of something. Atheists don't have no place to go to celebrate Thanksgiving, do they?
When gas prices were skyrocketing last summer, the liberal Democrats blamed President Bush. Today, the gas prices are lower than they have been in 4 1/2 years, but I don't hear any liberal Democrats thanking the president. This is just what we've learned to expect from mean-spirited, liberal Democrat hypocrites.
Congratulations, Terry Lee. Teacher of the month is a great honor. Keep up the good work.
