WICHITA, Kan. — Kansas school districts are scrambling to find ways to make up funding after the Governor calls for an addition budget cut of 1.5% for all schools.

“It’s something certainly concerning,” says Renwick School District Superintendent Tracy Bourne. Bourne says he met Friday with department heads asking them to come up with ideas on where they can cut.

Before you feel sorry for these people: Last year they raised the mil levee, and sent  around a letter telling us that we had a choice of building them a new gym or building a new class room, but that we only had the choice of building, period.

They received some flak and they sent around another letter telling us we had a choice of a new gym or a new wing, but that we only had the choice of building, they were not going to NOT spend the money..

There are times, as a home owner, that I regret having to pay mil levee taxes to the school districts. You know, being beyond having a child to use the schools and all. Waited a long time to get beyond that particular life style hazard.

Had an attempted robbery at the Co-Op. Couple of pot heads broke into some equipment there. Didn’t take anything and were caught on the main highway going east. Wichita men. Well. Wichita folks. Male. One 19, one 29.

Fellow knows they are physically old enough to be men, but really?

Pity. Too young to screw  up a life – off the wrong side the line. Probably never get back on the correct side.

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
