Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

Yeh ... the end of an era.

I'd like to offer back my username of "greyghost" to "TheOnlyGreyghost." I no longer have any use for it.

Torch: I agree that you shouldn't post anything with your real name as Tony might be able to track you down and "buy you lunch."

1776 Attorney: I look forward to your continued posts about how your family settled Baldwin in 1857 and your obsessive/compulsive posts about gutters and sidewalks in the city center.

It's been real (in a fake way). Thanks.

Study finds most Baldwin City streets in good shape

What is that, one block? The city cannot pave just one block in order to become "a city that paves their streets?" I think the city should just rise above the pettiness and just chip/seal it--get it over with!

Baldwin school board clarifies busing fee

Great point bf. These schools are not too accessible other than by car--a point made by Dorathy last summer. He cited safety concerns about getting kids in and out of school safely as reason to not charge for "in-town busing." Well, now lets add construction zone to the safety concerns! If it wasn't safe before, it sure as hell isn't safe now.

Where is the city and school district in their discussions about putting Elm Street through to Bull-Pup? Where are the side walks? Where are the crossing guards?

Anyone who has driven on 56 Highway at 8:00 am or 3:30 pm during the school year knows exactly how insane this town is to drive in.

Baldwin City Council agenda for July 1

"These are the facts." (mindless blabber from a pretend lawyer)

The fact is that in the special election of 2009, the majority of voters passed Proposition 2 in favor of library expansion and walking/biking trails.

Baldwin City Council agenda for July 1

You're against the trails at the state lake because to connect the city to them would require trails through Firetree and you don't want Firetree to benefit from such improvements? Haaahhaaaahaaa. Cut off your nose to spite your face much? I see that the whole city will benefit from these trails. Jesus, maybe one day the trail will meet up with the Prairie Spirit and Flint Hills trail systems.

I indeed voted for the sales tax increase for just these types trails through the city. In fact, the tax question passed--meaning we as a city voted to raise sales taxes in order to improve the library and add walking/bike trails within the city. So, when you and your ego come on here and claim that you think the council and mayor are disregarding the voters, it is you that is being ignorant (not to mention egotistical, falsely omniscient, and the voice of BC).

Please get over yourself, or gather your "friend's" signatures and petition the council against this state funded trail system. Good luck.

Baldwin City Council agenda for July 1

Trails at lake will be state funded, Mr. Constitutional Attorney.

Baldwin City Council agenda for July 1

I would like to see published this letter of support for the walking trail. To me, it sounds like a letter, perhaps with local citizen signatures, supporting such a venture. I would be very much interested in reading it, as well as signing it.

This is a state fishing lake not within the city limits, so any arguments about local taxes benefiting only those who live north of 56 Highway is moot. I live well south of 56 and would love to see any and all upgrades to alternative transportation in and around this town.

And to the new mayor: Please don't feel threatened by the above comment. You were duly voted into office. Mr. Attorney doesn't have insight into the consensus of Baldwin citizens' opinions on anything and should be taken with a grain of salt for even suggesting that he does.

It's official: Brownback signs bill saying life begins at fertilization

Apparently, according to Dr. Brownback, government is not too big.

Baldwin school board gets request for additional elementary school teacher for 2013-2014

We are now seeing the effects of consolidation and while the board and the parents/students come and go, there are some constants to be noted. The leadership of this district, and their short-sightedness, need to be kept a close eye on.

We are now being introduced with the dilemma where we may be needing to adding classrooms in order to handle the increase in population. Please, taxpayers, keep your eyes pointed to the leadership of this district. Yes, the board is our representation in this district, but have no accountability when they choose to not seek re-election, but there is a chain of command outside of the board and it is headed by the superintendent.
