About a year and a half ago, I posted about a decision of the Kansas Court of Appeals regarding the admission of a defendant’s statements after being pelted with profanities by the arresting officers.
It turns out that the State petitioned the Kansas Supreme Court for review, which they accepted. They released their decision today.

I’ve been writing a summary of the monthly lettings of the Kansas Department of Transportation on the aaroads.com forum as a sneak peak of the planned projects that the state is working on. So, I might as well publish them here as well.

I may have just turned 40, but it’s not the end of the road for me. My red Nissan Sentra, on the other hand, is a different story.
I was on the home stretch of heading home from the Turkey Creek train club meeting on Tuesday Night, when I had a chance encounter on US 24 out by Laptad’s Corner.

I finally got around from moving a page from a Raw HTML page and into the WordPress system.
That page is a minor update to the History of former radio station KAIR in Atchison. The station had left the air on Halloween in 2017 and was never able to return to the air before a statutory one year deadline kicked in. The FCC officially deleted the KAIR licence back in April.
Next up will likely be the Pioneer Radio History front-page.

We had quite the crowd for the Lawrence Santa Fe Depot rededication last Friday, February 22. Continue reading Santa Fe Station rededication
For several years (and at least three hosting providers) I’ve had a WordPress based blog on this site. Although WordPress is primarily known as a blogging platform, it’s also designed to be complete website back-end.
Although I’m more than familiar with most of the intricacies of HTML, having maintained a personal website for over 20 years (!), not to mention a BS in Computer Science, I figure using an off-the-shelf back end would be a good idea.
The first order of business: move the WordPress front-end to the front-page. That has now been completed. Eventually, I’ll move some of my static pages into the WordPress backend, starting with the Pioneer Radio History and Fan Fiction Stories. This might take a while, as I’m working on other things at the moment, notably the Lawrence Train Show.
The titular mirror stands over the corner of 21st Street and Wellman Road, the closest point from the paved road to my new election site: Sarcoxie Township station #2.
Kansas Governor: I promised back in August that if Kris Kobach won the primary, I would vote for the Democrat. Not only did I vote for Democrat Laura Kelly, I put up a sign for her in front of the Kennedy Compound.
