PV rebates for rain management. The city of Prairie Village next week open up a cost-share program for storm water treatment facilities built and maintained by homeowners. Residents interested in a potential refund for some of the cost of a rain garden, rain barrels or the construction of a pervious pavement surface should consider putting in an application.

NOW planning protest at Mission Hobby Lobby. The Kansas and Missouri chapters of the National Organization for Women are planning a demonstration at Hobby Lobby in Mission today at noon to protest the company’s moves to gain exemption from the Obamacare mandate to provide birth control. “Hobby Lobby’s lawsuit represents another salvo in the continuing war on women. This is nothing more than religious bullying. If Hobby Lobby prevails in this lawsuit, will Christian Scientists be allowed to deny their employees health coverage altogether?” said Sharon Lockhart, vice-president of Johnson-Wyandotte Counties NOW in a statement. The Mission Hobby Lobby is at 6721 Johnson Drive.
