Here is a sampling of social media comments about stories from across the state:

Hutchinson News Facebook: Results of mosquito aerial spraying

Jonathan Summer Ahrens: I wish they never would have done this. If you want to poison yourself with deet then go for it but this stuff kills good insects like bees and butterflies. When all the bees are gone so is all the food.

Jason Rose: Targeted pesticides don't just kill every insect. They kill the ones they are designed to kill and not others. That's why there are literally hundreds of different insecticides on the market.


Garden City Telegram Facebook: YMCA Dome opens

Dawn Fuchs: We love it! So thankful that KH has more gym space and will have "home" games for their teams!!

Arely Serna: That's the dome? I have to say I'm a little disappointed and is that thing going to withstand the weather? I thought it was going to be a building shaped like a dome? And YMCA members have to pay additional money to use it?


Wellington Daily News: Facade collapses at museum

Laura Thomas: As you are now experiencing more earthquakes than us in Washington state, the unreinforced brick and mortar facades and buildings will continue to crack and fall. Check the “Nisqually Earthquake,” coverage for examples.


Topeka Capital-Journal Facebook: DA defends $183 fine in fatality

Charles Criqui: Unless he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol he couldn't be charged with vehicular manslaughter. The laws are not meant to be bent to make a few happy.

Kathy O'Brien Smirl: Ridiculous


U.S. Rep. Steve Watkins touts agenda

Terri Lynn Coop: When you send a spineless nothing-burger empty vessel to congress, what do you expect? Of course he's going to kiss trump's feet.


Joe Biden profile

Steve Christy-Powell: He is not my favorite candidate but he's a decent human being who has dedicated his life to public service. He would be a vast improvement over the blatantly racist, habitually lying, infantile, vindictive, incompetent, con man, currently in the Whithouse.

Vicki Carey: Not much else to say. He had by his own admission 50 years to take our country in a good direction. Yet here we are. No.


Supreme Court Chief Lawton Nuss retirement

Timothy Annett: Thank goodness he waited until Brownback was out of office.

Bonnie Fann: Yes... now they can demand even more tax money be thrown into the bottomless pit of failing public schools!.... if money was going to turn them around we'd be#1!

Bonnie Fann: They retire "conveniently" under a Democrat governor.... go figure...

J Dean LeMaster: Susan Wagle will probably want this one too haha
