20% of Renters Face Eviction by September; One Salinan’s Experience

Karen ShadeJuly 20, 2020

According to The Washington Post, over 10 million Americans live in rental housing and 20% of them are "at risk of eviction by September 30th".  These figures were compiled by the Covid 19 Eviction Defense Project, headquartered in Colorado. Painfully, I've been evicted here in Salina, two weeks ago, for non-payment of rent.  It is one of the most shameful experiences of my life, and I'm abou...

OPINION: Professors Call For Cancellation of Student Ban

Kansas College ProfessorsJuly 13, 2020

Dear Sen. Roberts, Sen. Moran, Rep. Marshall, Rep. Watkins, Rep. Davids and Rep. Estes, We oppose the Student and Exchange Visitor Program's student ban, and we ask that you — our representatives in Washington — push for its immediate cancellation. The decision not to "issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall" has no rational basis, serv...

OPINION: Jail Flubdubs and Fryers

Karen ShadeJune 29, 2020

Saline County’s 2021 budget will be discussed during the County Commission’s Tuesday June 30th meeting.  The budget includes a $20,000 “equipment” purchase for the “Sheriff’s Office/Jail” for a fryer. Back in 2015, I saw a deep fat fryer in the jail’s kitchen.  Through an “open records” request, I saw menus that included “hamburgers/French fries” and “super nachos”...

2016 has come and gone and like all years there were some very positive things that happened and some really negative things.   Personally, it was a tough year because of the death of my younger sister back in February.  Lisa was my only sibling and as hard as it was for me I know it was so much harder on my Mom.  Children are supposed to bury parents and it is really difficult when that ...

‘Tis The Season

KSAL StaffDecember 12, 2016

Christmas time is wonderful.  The spirit, the giving, the merriment and cheer. All that's fine but I'm in it for the movies. From the old stuff, Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life. The classics, A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation. The new stuff, Elf and Bad Santa.  I love it all and I'll watch em all. Which one is your favorite? ...

Pat’s Chats: Dumbest Rules In Sports

KSAL StaffDecember 6, 2016

REJOICE! No, not because it's holiday season, but because Major League Baseball just made the best possible decision for its product. The All-Star Game no longer determines home field advantage for the World Series. That rule has always been the dumbest in my mind. And don't even try to convince me by saying the players are truly giving their all in the game. The rule penalized the team with the...

The Gift That Says “I’ve Checked You Off the List”

KSAL StaffDecember 5, 2016

My mother was the best at buying gifts. One trick was continual gift shopping. She didn't start hours or days before the event, she was always on the lookout for something unique every day of the year, and especially when she was travelling.  It's easy to find unique in Lisbon or London, not so easy when you're shopping the big box two days before Christmas. One end cap gift display looks a lot l...
