SORT BY Relevancy
Ferguson is a city of 21,000 residents. This little city is 67% black 28% white, and others. On August 9, 2014 a young man, preparing to enter college on Monday August 12, never made it past August 9. This young man was killed by a police officer. The account given by the officer is that the young man was ordered to not walk in the street. It is said by the officer the young man refused to move to the sidewalk; words were exchanged, the young many reached into the patrol car to grap the officer and the office shot to protect himself. Based on the officers statement via police chief, the young man proceeded to run away, and the officer chased the boy and shot him several more times. The young man then lay dead, for 4 hours in the very street the officer attempted to prevent him from walking in. The reason for the now body of the young man to lay in the hot August street for 4 hours is known only to the police officers of the small town of 21,000 residents. The officer, Darren Wilson, has not been arrested, and no other person has been arrested. A person walking in the middle of a street is killed while running away from an officer, and the officer remains free, on paid leave. What does the death of a person mean to a city so small? To the majority of the people, the death is a tramatic experience and they want justice for the death of the young man. Mike Brown, who is not longer with us. To a few choice people the death of the young man, a black man, means peace has been disturbed in their small city and the few does not want the eyes of the world on their small city watching angry demonstrators.

1st Hour: Edited samplings from the Oct. 14, 2014 forum and debate courtesy KVOE 1400AM radio. The complete debate can be heard in the stations audio vault, click here.
Former state Rep. Bill Otto (R-9th) is currently campaigning as an Indepedent in the "new" 76th district. Here are some of his quotes from an old 9th District debate as cited in the Emporia Gazette:
Otto said he also felt as though he was a consistent conservative, but said it was important to be a consistent conservative who supports funding promised programs initiated by the legislature.
“This state is a dead-beat, and being a conservative is not being a dead-beat,” said Otto.
Otto was quick to bring up school board redistricting.
“The first one that directly affects you guys, in small areas, we didn’t have school boards redistricting,” he said. “We had areas, actually in rural areas, where it was hard to get anybody to run.”
He said the first bill to mention that he had authored was to have one person, one vote for school boards.
Rep. Otto agreed with the importance of small schools, saying he was the leading expert on school finance.
“When we continue to drop the equalizations formula … it continues that pressure, to close small community school,” he said.
