“Never make plans in May” is one of the many sayings around the Capitol. For more than a decade, veto sessions have lasted weeks, even more than a month. In record time, the 2019 veto session lasted just four days (plus a couple hours into Sunday morning). Quite unexpectedly, I’m writing this from home with the entire month of May to catch up on real life.
I will continue updating you throughout the rest of the year should legislative issues arise. For example, the Kansas Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the state’s school finance solution, so there will certainly be a decision released this summer, as well as other happenings throughout the state. Please keep in touch during the interim!
On the Home Front
Easter Sunday is always special in our church as we hold Sunrise Service at the home of Rick and Sally Berger’s home on the banks of The Missouri River in Atchison. We adorn the cross with fresh cut spring flowers, and enjoy the beautiful Redbuds in the background.
This past week I was able to take a few days off and travel to Cotter, Ark. to visit a friend of mine—Wayne Clinkingbeard, who was the builder of our current home. He gave me a copy of his family memoirs in a book called “Roots and Wings”, a humorous book about growing up in Northwest Arkansas 75 years ago. He is a wonderful guy and great humorist. This pic was taken at the famous Rainbow bridge in Cotter Park on the White River—Trout Capital of the USA.
