UPCOMING TODAY:

KANSAS GOVERNOR-PROVOKING OUTRAGE

TOPEKA, Kan. — Republican Kris Kobach is promising to continue to use a replica of a machine gun as he campaigns for Kansas governor in parades and similar venues this summer.

By John Hanna. UPCOMING: 500 words.

KANSAS STATE LIBRARY FIRE

MANHATTAN, Kan. — Hundreds of workers are onsite at Kansas State University's Hale Library after a fire last month caused significant damage to the structure and contents. UPCOMING: 300 words.
