    Becky Harper sobbed as she spoke to a Missouri dispatcher after stumbling across her expectant daughter in a pool of blood, her womb slashed open and the child she had been carrying missing. “It’s like she exploded or something,” Harper told the dispatcher on Dec. 16, 2004, during the desperate yet futile attempt to get help for her daughter, Bobbie Jo Stinnett, who had been eight months pregnant. Lisa Montgomery, who strangled Stinnett with a rope before performing a crude cesarean and fleeing with the baby, awaits execution Tuesday, just eight days before the presidential inauguration of death penalty opponent...
  • Four in Kansas’ delegation joining Electoral College challenge on Trump’s behalf

    01/04/2021 12:06:11 PM PST · by Old Yeller · 10 replies
    Four Kansas Republicans who will be members of the new Congress plan to join objections to Electoral College certification Wednesday in an effort to bolster President Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud that allegedly contributed to President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in November. U.S. Sen. Roger Marshall, U.S. Rep. Ron Estes and U.S. Reps.-elect Tracey Mann and Jake LaTurner, who all endorsed Trump’s re-election, have announced their intent to support Trump’s quest to overturn the election by first delaying the process in which Congress counts Electoral College votes and certifies the winner of the presidential races. In the Kansas delegation, Republican...

    A western Kansas mayor announced her resignation Tuesday after receiving threats for publicly supporting a mask mandate in her city during the coronavirus pandemic. Dodge City Mayor Joyce Warshaw said she had concerns about her safety after encountering threatening phone calls and emails following an interview she did with USA Today Friday endorsing a mask mandate, the Dodge City Globe reported.

    Thus far in Florida, approximately 20,000 people have died of COVID-19. In Texas, the number stands around 24,000, and in New York, about 35,000.New York is the smallest of the three, with 19.54 million residents. Then comes Florida, with 21.67 million, before Texas, with 28.7 million residents.COVID numbers are difficult to trust. Cases are often counted more than once as patients go in and out of the hospital, and some deaths are attributed to COVID that are barely related, if at all.There’s a perverse incentive to write down “COVID” and get state and federal money, no doubt, but one thing...

    A Kansas mayor announced Tuesday she has resigned over threats she’s been receiving after publicly supporting the city’s COVID-19 mask mandate. Dodge City Mayor Joyce Warshaw told USA Today she feared for her safety after residents threatened her over the phone and email. “I understand people are under a lot of pressure from various things that are happening around society like the pandemic, the politics, the economy, so on and so forth, but I also believe that during these times people are acting not as they normally would,” Warshaw told the outlet. “I think it’s best for me and the...

Marvin James Farr, 81, was in isolation at a nursing home in Scott City, Kansas, when he died Tuesday “not surrounded by friends and family,” his heartbroken son Courtney Farr wrote in the online obituary.

    Kansas is preparing to launch a media campaign aimed at getting more of its residents to wear masks so that the coronavirus doesn’t keep spreading rapidly. Some officials are skeptical that it will move the needle much. A mask mandate from Democratic Governor Laura Kelly is set to take effect Wednesday, but Kansas law allows the state’s 105 counties to opt out. The governor is asking each county to develop its own local mask order, and if they don’t do so by Wednesday a statewide order will be in effect. The state has set aside $1.5 million for television, radio,...

    Three people were shot late Saturday in North Topeka after a man confronted people he thought had committed past thefts of signs promoting the campaign of Republican Presidential incumbent Donald Trump, a Topeka police supervisor said Sunday. Police weren’t specifying who was thought to have shot whom or revealing the names, ages or genders of those who were wounded. Officers responded about 11 p.m. to the scene in the 1300 block of N.W. Eugene, from which one person was taken by ambulance to a hospital with gunshot wounds that were considered potentially life-threatening, said police Lt. Joe Perry. Two other...

    “I was just so emotional just because it was my happiest place, being with him next to the storms,” Joey Krastel said of the engagement. A massive tornado in Kansas may seem like one of the most unlikely — and certainly one of the most dangerous — places for a marriage proposal, but for experienced storm chaser Joey Krastel, it was a real and exhilarating way to show his love for his boyfriend. Krastel, a meteorologist and risk analyst for the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, saw his first tornado when he was four. After getting over his initial fear, he...

    Though I'm as far away from the USA as is physically possible (Antarctica excepted), I just wanted everyone to know that the state of Kansas just received my vote in the general election. I voted for 4 more years of decency in government, an honest politician, economic growth, improvements to the Supreme Court (hopefully we see a few resignations), draining of the swamp, dismantling and restoration of our intelligence agencies and finally the Biden's in jail. If it isn't clear, I voted for Trump. There may have been one or two extra hoops to jump through, but it was worth...

    Washburn University removed the statues of Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson from their campus saying that they didn't want those statues to be an embarrassment to alummi. On 8/21/2020, they quietly cancelled a black lives matter rally that was to be held in their stadium. Their excuse was coronavirus. They've just announced the rescheduling of the event to 10/02/2020. I've contacted the University but they need to hear from many more people, so I'm spreading the news far and wide in hopes that an avalanche of emails may cause them to rethink this poor decision.

    A new study by lead author Professor Jesse J. Casana, chair of the department of anthropology at Dartmouth College published in American Antiquity , says the team of archaeologists conducted their survey at a ranch located in the lower Walnut River valley. The author describes the local topography as flat, with no visible archaeological features. However, flying state of the art scanning equipment over this landscape located in present-day Arkansas City, Kansas, near the Arkansas River, revealed “an ancient, circular shaped ditch measuring 50 meters wide and approximately 2 meters thick”. The scientists explain in their paper that as the...

    Something is wrong, dangerously wrong, in Wyandotte County. And it’s spilling out into the entire Kansas City region.Whether through incompetence or inexperience, the Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office is inarguably playing Russian roulette with the public’s safety. And people may be dying as a result.In an investigation by The Star, alarmed sources inside the criminal justice system have warned about District Attorney Mark Dupree’s presiding over shockingly lenient plea deals, missing and belated subpoenas, unlawful delays in producing evidence for defense attorneys and violent cases being dismissed and suspects let free.  After The Star’s review of nearly 50 criminal cases...

Aaron Coleman wrote that since he announced he was dropping out of the race, “I have heard from many of the people who voted for me urging me not to drop out. They said they did not vote for me expecting that I was a...

    What's up with Topeka, Kansas? First we have our local Goodyear plant making national news with their "diversity training" program. By now you've all seen the slide saying black lives matter good, all lives matter bad. Well, tonight the local University is holding a BLM rally to be streamed on youtube. I wonder what kind of insanity will be spewed from the speakers at this event?
