Cd'A CHAMBER: Launching tomorrow's leaders
Spring is in the air! The snow has melted (mostly), the birds are singing and tiny blossoms are starting to sprout. It is the wonderful season of renewal and rejuvenation after a long and dark winter. It's been a difficult week for our community, especially for our friends in the education sector after the levies failed. But following this notable setback, I am encouraged to see signs of rebirth, showing an awakened resolve to work together in support of our students, educators and the future of our business community.

OPINION: IFF files, Part 6: Why are they hiding?
I’d like to start this column with an apology. I’ve been referring to IFF/KCRCC and their associated groups as Libertarians, and that’s not fair to real Libertarians. According to referenced sources, Libertarians believe people should be free to think as they choose. Nowhere do the references even hint at true Libertarians being demanding, bullying, and penalizing others for thinking for themselves. But that’s exactly what the IFF/KCRCC does, so we will have to find a different description for them. Authoritarians, perhaps?
