Here is a sampling of social media comments about stories from across the state:
Wellington Facebook: Kansas officials call Lake of Ozarks parties "reckless"
Chris Woodard: 188 deaths is not a pandemic unless they all happened within one county. This is incredible. The Democrat socialist playbook is being laid wide open on this one
Cheryl Johnson: Just a sign you’re losing your crowd. Turning a blind eye to your demands.
Dewayne Kester: Just because you Ks "officials" are paranoid, it doesn't mean we have to be. Move on to something else.
Jacob Foster: Party on!
Garden City Facebook: Governor calls marathon "embarrassing, irresponsible"
Floyd Bettencourt: The worst governing is right. Good luck on your next endeavors from all the profits you've made.
Cynthia Marsh (Floyd Bettencourt): you probably voted for Brownback and Kobach so you don't get to have an opinion on governor's.
Jeff Reinert: People are hurtful. Some people in Kansas Republican politics are just Privelaged big babies. They are in Topeka to play games with government money. They benefit only themselves or their political donors.
Pittsburg Morning Sun Facebook: Local impact unclear after governor vetoes limits on her power but loosens rules
Jeffrey Ray Munger: Open crawford , no reason most everything can't be open with restrictions such as walmart and others.
Corey Stryker: They need to stop moving the goal post, remember when we just needed to flatten the curve to get things opened back up? Now some states want there to be a cure before we get back to normal. As far as people saying this is the new normal screw that the new normal is going to be the old normal. This virus was way overhyped to begin with and if people just use common sense they will be fine.
Barbara Herbert: It gets so confusing with constantly changing rules and rules that could change when you drive a few miles. I believe the confusion then causes people to just do what they were doing.
Salina Journal Facebook: GOP candidates for U.S. Senate debate
Steve Stolzenburg: all the politicians point fingers at each other the fact its the people fault for voting those kind in that twist the truth around to get your vote and the people fall for all the time where have all the honest truthful leaders gone ? If there was a honest truthful person whey would not have any knd of chance of getting elected
Dee Warren: The real threat to democracy and our Republic is every one of these candidates would simply rubber stamp any outrageous idea Trump puts forward with zero oversight - Marshall has already proven that's his MO. I can't vote for any of them.
Kathy Horan: Why was Kobach part of this debate when he hasn't filed?
Topeka Capital-Journal Facebook: GOP leaders frustrated with governor's veto
Jeff Lutes: Big deal. These "leaders" declared it was too dangerous for the legislature to be in session but are demanding everyone else go back to work? Every one of them that voted for Wagle's desperate attempt to be relevant should be voted out of office.
Cody Fulks: Hasn’t the curve already been flattened, do we have any over run health systems in Kansas?
Laila Adsero (Cody Fulks): it hasn't flattened, look at coronavirus updates for our state.
