I know LGBT is trying to make a fuss of this and compare themselves to African American’s and segregation/refusal by business owners. If LGBT wants equality they shouldn’t be shielded from refusal of service. I have nothing against LGBT as my uncle was gay but I think they feel entitled to receive special treatment simply because of their sexual preference. Believe it or not there are a lot of religious LGBT so connecting them and religion isn’t a fair accessment. LGBT has every right every other Americans have and shouldn’t abuse the fact that they are different from others.

Most business owners will not show preference Against a person’s religion as long as they come in buy and go about their business. If the business chooses to not do business with someone because they disagree with their values (which could be different not from religion) then they should have that right. Forcing a baker to Bake a wedding cake for a gay couple, when that person does not agree with homosexual weddings is an example that is going to the Supreme Court this year. That baker is going to lose his business over this case when it was well known that there were gay bakers that could have done the same work, but the couple wanted to make a point and put the person out of business. This legislation may seem like over kill, but there is a growing trend, in the name of tolerance to create fear and abuse toward a silent majority.

first_imgSubmitted to Sumner Newscow — Early Mexican Settlements in Railroad Boxcar Communities is a visual presentation by Dr. Antonio Delgado, a historian of the Mexican People of the United States, an expert on Mexican Immigration, and a retired college dean. It will take place at 6 PM on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, in the Wellington Public Library Meeting Room.  The program is sponsored by the St. Anthony/St. Rose Catholic Church Cultural Organization.Dr. Delgado’s presentation highlights the positive contributions of Mexican railroad workers in the development and growth of the Midwest region- including several early Mexican Settlements in Kansas. Integrating these missing pages of history will foster a greater understanding and appreciation of our Mexican neighbors.Since the 1910s Mexican immigrants were employed in very large numbers, by various railroad companies throughout the U.S. In the Midwest, wherever major railroad hubs existed usually meant a small army of Mexican railroad workers. This phenomenon also occurred in Kansas. Consequently, Mexicans directly contributed to the growth and development of the U.S. – locally, regionally and nationally.This presentation is free to the public and suitable for general audiences of all ages. To attend this presentation, please use the side entrance of the Library on Jefferson Street. The rest of the Library will close at the regular time of 6 PM.Follow us on Twitter.

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington City Council has approved the transfer of $880,476 out of its contingency fund to Sumner Regional Medical Center to help the local healthcare facility pay some bills.The action came after two one-hour executive sessions to discuss confidential personnel matters and non-elected personnel at Tuesday’s meeting. Taking the recommendation of City Attorney Michael Brown, the funds will specifically be designated as follows:•$366,601 will go toward KPERS.•$365,523 will go towards the SRMC’s accounts payable;•$13,352 will go toward CERNA, the computer software;•$135,000 will go toward Impact Bank for loan payment.The council then voted to extend the city utility abatements for another six months. In its final course of action for the night, the council also voted to form a sub-committee which will include two council members and two members of the Wellington Healthcare Authority who will meet to deal with the financial dealings of SRMC on a periodical basis.The city currently has $1.7 million in its contingency fund, which is a rainy day type fund. With the allocation of $880,476 the fund has been cut in half. Interim City Manager Shane Shields said the council will need to take separate action to determine how to make up for those funds at a later date.The specifics on the fund allocation and the suddenness of such distribution were not discussed in public session.Council member John Brand said the hospital is at a crossroads, and the community will need to decide how much of a taxation commitment is needed for the long-term solution of SRMC.Council member B.J. Tracy said the council needs to set a community public forum to put everything out there on what is happening and to allow citizens to ask questions.“This has been a rough decision,” said Wellington City Council member Jim Valentine. “We all have to work on this together. I believe this is a positive move what happened tonight.••••• In other city business:•The council upped the pay of Shields to a level 25 salary which is a pay scale of 41 to 47 hourly range as long as he is serving in a city manager capacity. Shields is serving both as a city manager and city clerk for the time being.•A work session has been set for June 16 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss the five-year Capital Improvement Plan.•Council member Jan Korte offered her support with getting H Street paved much like the recently completed street on Lincoln.•Council member B.J. Tracy recapped some of the activities going on at Memorial Auditorium including the restoring of the veteran’s room in the front entrance of the building, and the fact there were over 800 people who attended the Collin Raye concert.•Steve Mitchell, Director of the Sterling House, warned council members of the growing problem of people taking advantage of the elderly in the community.•Shields spoke of Mike Dwyer, a former member of the Wellington Park Board, for upgrading the “Welcome to Wellington” sign on the west side of town. Mayor Roger Stallbaumer said it was a generous donation of Dwyer’s time and financial commitment.•Wellington Public Works Director Jeremy Jones have identified 80-plus trip hazards in the sidewalks that need to be shaved to adhere to ADA requirements. The total cost is about $8,000 and will be completed before the Wheat Festival.•The council decided to not proceed with the demolishing of 611 W. 13th Street as the owner has demonstrated progress on the previously condemned project.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

first_imgMORE: What can NBA coaches challenge during games?Lou Williams absolutely brutalizes Eric Bledsoe on this foul. KO. pic.twitter.com/TLmBZVoU8U— Justin Russo (@FlyByKnite) November 7, 2019Here’s another angle of Lou Williams knocking out Eric Bledsoe. pic.twitter.com/XkvG9qnacL— Justin Russo (@FlyByKnite) November 7, 2019″They should’ve overturned it,” Rivers said after the game (via ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk). “That’s why I hate the rule. Nobody wants to be wrong. Let me just say that. You have to overturn that. Unless Bledsoe fouled Lou with his face, there was no foul on that play… “There was a flop. I think it [would’ve] been more of a chance that Bledsoe got a letter from the league about flopping than Bledsoe got fouled. That was awful. I don’t like the rule anyway. I said it up front. And now I like it even less.”Following in the footsteps of the NFL and MLB, the NBA introduced a coach’s challenge for the 2019-20 season. Each team has one challenge available per game, and coaches are allowed to challenge personal foul calls, out-of-bounds calls and goaltending/basket interference calls over the course of the game. “Clear and conclusive evidence” is required in order to overturn a call on the floor. (For a more in-depth explanation of the rule, go here.)Through the Clippers’ first eight games, Rivers has lost his only two challenges, but he should be at a 50 percent success rate based on Wednesday night’s video evidence. The NBA coach’s challenge may still be in its infancy, but Doc Rivers already has strong feelings about the new rule.The Clippers coach ranted about a failed challenge in the fourth quarter of his team’s 129-124 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday night, saying an offensive foul call on Los Angeles guard Lou Williams was “awful.” Rivers did have a strong case, as the replay angles available showed Milwaukee’s Eric Bledsoe throwing his head back after minimal contact with Williams’ shoulder.last_img read more

first_imgSign-stealing by MLB teams is becoming ever more sophisticated, and some clubs are responding by making their own signs from catchers to pitchers difficult to decipher. The Nationals took their countermeasures to an extreme in this year’s World Series vs. the Astros.Per The Washington Post, Nats coaches worked out a plan before the best-of-seven Fall Classic to keep Houston from, legally or otherwise, picking up signs and then relaying them to hitters. The product was a complex set of signals that were used for every pitch, not just with runners on second base. The main setup, as reported by the Post’s Barry Svrluga, who spoke to Nationals pitching coach Paul Menhart and reliever Sean Doolittle:First, each pitcher had to have his own set of signs, and catchers Yan Gomes and Kurt Suzuki had to be familiar with each one. So the staff printed out cards with the codes and had them laminated. The catchers could have them in their wristbands, a la an NFL quarterback with play calls strapped to his forearm, and the pitchers would have them in their caps. Each pitcher had five sets of signs, and they could change them from game to game — or even batter to batter, if necessary. Using the set labeled No. 2, but worried the Astros were catching on? The pitcher could signal to the catcher to move to set No. 3.The story also goes into detail about indicators and sequences of signs, things like “chase the two” (first sign after two fingers are shown) and “outs plus one.”FOSTER: I should have been clearer about sign-stealing”This is the way the game’s going to go now,” Menhart told Svrluga. “You’re going to have to have this. Sign-stealing has become quite an art.”The Post’s story was published one day after The Athletic published a story (subscription required) in which former Astros pitcher Mike Fiers claimed Houston stole signs with video and then relayed that information to hitters in 2017, the year the club won the World Series. MLB took measures in 2018 to prevent electronic thievery after allegations that the Astros, Red Sox and Yankees were stealing signs or spying on opponents. MLB is working with the Astros to investigate Fiers’ claims. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich reported Wednesday night (again, subscription required) that MLB will want to interview Astros manager A.J. Hinch, Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Mets manager Carlos Beltran about the alleged relay system. Cora was Hinch’s bench coach in 2017, and Beltran was on the roster as a player. Beltran has long been known as one of the game’s best “legal” sign-stealers.Beltran denied to The Athletic (and, earlier, to Joel Sherman of the New York Post) that the team used video to steal signs. Instead, he said, they did it the old-fashioned way: by studying the catcher from second base.”We took a lot of pride studying pitchers [on] the computer. That is the only technology that I use and understand,” Beltran said via text message, per The Athletic. “It was fun seeing guys get to the ballpark to look for little details.”last_img read more

first_imgFour-team Playoff lives (for now)The Playoff committee will not hot have to deal with the Alabama debate. That won’t completely stop the eight-team playoff push, especially knowing at least one Power 5 conference champion — perhaps two — could be left out. The Oklahoma-Utah argument is more palatable knowing a one-loss Power 5 champion could get in while the other doesn’t. That wouldn’t be the case if a one-loss non-champion got in over both.Bama faces big questionsThe Crimson Tide likely will still make a New Year’s Day 6 Bowl, but this will be the first time Saban coaches a team in the Playoff era in what could be considered a “consolation game.” LSU and Auburn shredded Alabama’s defense, which could mean some shifting on the defensive staff. The truth is the Crimson Tide did not have a championship-caliber unit on that side of the ball.Tua Tagovailoa could also opt for the 2020 NFL Draft, and that creates an interesting quarterback controversy for next season (do you go with Mac Jones, four-star freshmen Taulia Tagovailoa and Paul Tyson or incoming five-star recruit Bryce Young?) Nick Saban will once again need to ask some tough questions in the offseason. No. 5 Alabama lost to No. 16 Auburn 48-45 in the Iron Bowl on Saturday, which clinched a virtual certainty for the first time in the College Football Playoff era:Nick Saban-led Alabama will not be one of the four final teams in the Playoff. It’s a loss that shakes up the entire Playoff picture heading into conference championship weekend. Here are the biggest impacts on the SEC and Playoff picture: MORE: Tigers win a wild one in Jordan-HarePac-12, Big 12 rejoiceAlabama’s loss eliminates the Tide from the Playoff, based on the standard that no two-loss team has made the Playoff.That opens the door for Utah in the Pac-12 and, potentially, the winner of the Big 12 championship between Oklahoma and Baylor. Now those teams won’t have to become entangled in a philosophical argument with the Crimson Tide. It also will create an interesting argument between those three one-loss teams. Would you take the winner of Oklahoma-Baylor or Utah for that final spot if LSU beats Georgia?SEC can still get two teamsIt’s just the two teams everyone envisioned. Georgia, despite a loss to South Carolina on Oct. 12, still controls its Playoff destiny. The Bulldogs can get in with a victory against LSU, and the Tigers likely would stay in the top four unless it is a total catastrophe in Atlanta.Those two teams have enough quality victories piled up to stave off the Pac-12 and Big 12 champion — if you’re Baylor, Oklahoma or Utah, you are rooting hard for LSU so the SEC becomes only a one-Playoff team league.last_img read more
