    Hi Sydney

    Do you have any interest in supporting a grassroots movement to reform the designation of Electoral College Electors in KS from Winner take All to a Proportional Allocation based on the popular vote in KS?

    My discussion with Senator David Haley indicates this can be done by passing a Legislative Bill.

    I expect this is possible for the 2028 election.

    We need to protect and grow public education as opposed to giving scholarships to the wealthiest of Kansans.

    Hi there,

    There are some specific industries where job growth is expected to continue to soar. These include software, marketing, and healthcare, to name a few.

    To help others — including new/aspiring business owners and established entrepreneurs — take advantage of these opportunities, I’ve been creating free resource guides with quick tips on how people can grow and diversify their skills. Would you be interested in reviewing one? I’ll include a mention of your website in the guide. If you like it, it would be great if you could share it with your readers.

    Let me know if you’re interested, and I’ll get to work.

    Thank you for your time,

    Vanessa Holwell

    I would really like to start a campaign to have more daylight in the evenings during winter. This means making daylight savings time year-round. It appears that the states can approve it, but then the federal government has to ok it. Kansas, let’s get our first step going! I am a marriage family therapist and can attest to the poor mental health the darkness contributes to!

    Those who are out of work or who simply want to make a little extra money on the side may be wondering how they can get started making money online.

    I was wondering if you’d post an article from me on the topic. In it, I’ll include advice on everything from how to assess your marketable skills to where to find opportunities to what you need to know about paying taxes on what you earn, and more.

    If I send it over, would you post the article for your readers?

    Thank you!

    I am working on a piece about working from home, and I thought your readers would be the perfect audience for it. I’m compiling reliable and truly useful information about how to build a business from home so you can work — and live — on your own terms.

    Can I send it over for you to review when I’m finished? If you like it, you can post it (free of charge!) :)

    Thanks very much!

    Sydney My name is Carolina Wasinger. I’m one of 12 children living in Fairfax Station. I’m a catholic studying at William & Mary. My sister Maddie Wasinger & my older brother Steve committed an armed robbery in my neighborhood. We have a retainer for both of them as they await second degree murder charges. My father worked for Jerry Moran on the campaign trail. He recently lost his job at McGuire Woods because of the robbery. My father Robert Wasinger grew up in Hayes, Kansas and is proud to be from Kansas. I’m praying that someone will help my family.

    Now more than ever, moms everywhere are jumping into entrepreneurship head first, proving it is possible to juggle the responsibilities of home and work with grace.

    I should know… I’m one of them!

    About 6 years ago, I left my job as an office manager to pursue being a life, career, and overall wellness coach. Since then, I have felt more fulfilled, more successful, and more connected with my family than ever.

    Can I write a no-cost, original article just for your readers about how stay-at-home moms can start their own successful businesses? I can include advice on the best business models for a “mompreneur” and how to get started, as well as tips on working from home with kids and achieving that elusive work/life balance. Also, I can promote your website in the piece.

    Thank you for your consideration,

    MANHATTAN, KAN. – Alice McGaughey-Nondorf and Gary LaBarge, launched their GoFundMe as a last-ditch effort to raise funds to secure legal support and keep them in their homes after receiving an eviction notice late in the evening, November 13th. The couple–who are immunocompromised–completed paperwork, accessed housing support agencies, and secured over $11,000 in funds through the NEK-CAP Foundation and the CARES Act, but it was not accepted and eviction papers were served. 

    “Eviction will essentially leave us both homeless. Gary has Stage 4-COPD with asthma and numerous other comorbid health conditions,” McGaughey-Nondorf said. “Basically, an eviction puts us at extreme risk, and we have nowhere to turn.”

    Federal and statewide eviction bans are in place to protect those who have been directly or indirectly impacted by the pandemic, yet landlords have found a loophole: Lease non-renewals. ManApart LLC, a subsidiary of Genesis Health Clubs in Wichita, is exploiting this loophole to evict the couple. This loophole leaves many renters across the country unable to utilize the protections within the system to advocate on their behalf when landlords move to evict.

    As of the 13th, the Riley County Health Department showed 2,987 total positive cases with 551 active infections. Residents are being asked to exercise extreme caution in the area as cases soar in the state. National guidelines urge those with medical predispositions to infection to remain in their homes, as exposure puts them at a greater risk for severe symptoms, hospitalization, and even death. 

    Scared for both their health and livelihood, Alice messaged news outlets, posted across social media platforms, and called everyone who might lend some support to the couple’s legal battle. Finally, she connected with Fanny Fang, her District 2 candidate for County Commission in Riley County. Fang had listed housing as a core campaign commitment and a value for the community. 

    The community rose to the occasion. Leaders from the YDSA at K-State, Fang for Riley Co, Manhattan Alliance for Peace and Justice, Rent Zero Kansas, and Renter’s Together MHK began organizing earlier this week to support the effort to keep Alice and Gary in their homes. 

    “When Alice reached out, I was shocked to hear that landlords would be processing evictions in Riley County as cases surge,” Jessica Preston Kerr, a community organizer with MAPJ and Renter’s Together MHK, said. “Then to learn that they were exploiting this loophole, it is downright cruel.” 

    The groups will be using their platforms to share Alice and Gary’s story, raise funds in the form of mutual aid for legal support, and ask that the Riley County courts cancel or postpone the eviction, which is likely to be on the docket mid-next week.

    In speaking out against their eviction, Alice and Gary join a national movement that stretches far beyond urban, coastal communities to cancel rent. Cancel Rent organizers call for support in the form of clear, comprehensive protections to make sure everyone can remain safely and securely in their home for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis and its recovery period.

    Renter’s Together MHK is a multigenerational, multiracial, cross-class group of renters in Manhattan, KS organizing for safe and truly affordable housing. We believe that the people closest to the problems are closest to the solutions, and should be leading change, and call for policy changes to keep people housed, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic

    Hi there,

    As COVID-19 has taken its hold on the U.S., there have been many news reports about regional nursing and school nurse shortages. Unfortunately, as many Baby Boomer nurses retire, this is a growing problem that has only been exacerbated by the pandemic.

    Can I write an article for your website on how to start a career in nursing? I’ll include information about what schooling and training is needed and how to get it, what career paths are available to nurses, how to find your first job, and more.

    My hope is that my article will encourage young people or anyone considering a change in careers to choose this very rewarding and essential field.

    Will you please let me know if you’d be interested in posting my article?

    Thank you!

    Hi Sidney,

    Today I read many of the posts to your website and feel very encouraged, even though I am not from Manhattan, Kansas, even though I worked for 43 years in a college in Manhattan, N.Y. I know that doesn’t qualify me to be one of your constituents (just kidding!).

    In Suffolk County, Long Island, Congressional District 1, we have a Congressman, Lee Zeldin (R-NY1), who is nothing like you Sidney! Even though you are in the State and he is in the House of Representatives the approach to constituents should be similar. In Jeffrey Harden’s book, Multidimensional Democracy, I read that you care for Democrats and Republicans alike. They are all people to you with real needs and concerns. As such, you try your best to respond to the improvements they need in Manhattan, and make policy changes benefitting them. I wish Lee Zeldin was like you! When – if – you visit us, the Resistance could discuss with you how constituents should get their representatives to work for them MULTIDIMENSIONALLY, and how they can be humanized to think of ALL their constituents like you do.

    Hi Sidney,

    Just contributed $25 to your campaign. It’s a small amount, but I retired this year and my wife and I are living on social security and a small annuity for me. Our family income has reduced by 2/3.

    I would like to connect the Suffolk County group Resistance and Me to you. Let me know if that’s possible When Coronavirus passes (if it does during my lifetime!), I would like to see you visit the Resistance group to exchange ideas and strategies.

    Please acknowledge this post.

    Dear Sidney

    Sometime ago I had written you a letter asking you if you’d be interested in a Democratic Club movement in Suffolk County, Long Island in NY. You had shown some interest. I am writing to inform you that from the same area a group of women worked tirelessly in 2017 and 2018, to get women elected in all levels of government, joining the famous Women’s March held the day after Donald Teump was elected. They have brought out a book chronicling their political activities in The Resistance and Me: An Insider’s Account of the Mission to Defeat Trump’s Agenda, published by Amazon They would very much like to make friends with you and count you as one of their well wishes. You are a very inspirational woman. I had read about you in the opening chapter of Multinational Democracy and written to you. I had contributed to your campaign in 2017.. Please respond.

    We are residents of white canyon. We live beside Tuttlecreek lake. Our only road to our home has been under water for 8 months. We do not have another way in. No police, fire, or ambulance. We have contacted our county commissioners several times but so far nothing has been done. We are senior citizens and have had to buy an atv to drive thru the woods for about a mile to get to our home. The corp of engineers do not think the water will go down all year. We pay taxes but cant get an emergency road to our home. We had to make our own road to get thru the woods. Please can we get help, winter is coming!! Thank you.
