This week I had the privilege of interviewing Tomas O’Flannagan who works for The Villages, Inc. of Kansas. This organization needs help. They need staff and volunteers. I implore you to listen to this interview and do what you can to help an organization that is quietly making a huge impact on the lives of our children in need here in Douglas and Shawnee Counties.

The Villages provides emotionally supportive homes to youth in need.

The Villages manages a 400-acre private nature preserve and provides nature-based opportunities for our youth residents including an amazing Adventure Challenge Course which is also available to school groups, church groups, corporate management, workplace teams, etc. in the community.

This morning at 10am, I had the honor of being granted an on camera television interview with our new police chief, Gregory Burns.

I found him to be thoroughly prepared and extremely insightful. The one comment that he made that has stayed with me since our time together was “you can not police morality.”

I think you will find this interview to provide tremendous insight into the background, beliefs and positions of our new police chief in Lawrence, Kansas.

It appears we are in very capable hands.

It was a pleasure interviewing country star Josh Gracin this morning. He is coming to The Oread August 26th. You can hear the interview on the attached video link after listening to a short promo for the concert:

Benet Magnuson is the Executive Director of Kansas Appleseed.

This advocacy group based at Green Hall on the KU Campus and also in the law building at Washburn in Topeka are making tremendous strides in the Kansas Social Justice movement.

Watch the video, feel inspired and help out. They are fighting for a better Kansas
