WICHITA, Kan. — Zoo officials are proposing a 25-year master plan for the Sedgwick County Zoo to attract more visitors to Wichita from across the US. The zoo is Kansas’ top attraction with an estimated $43 million annual impact on the Wichita economy. But 94 percent of the zoo’s 600,000 annual visitors come from within 100 miles of the zoo, the Wichita Eagle reported. SENT: 331 words
TOPEKA, Kan. — President Donald Trump at a Kansas rally celebrated the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, condemning Democrats for what he called a “shameless campaign of political and personal destruction” against his nominee. To cheers of supporters at the Kansas Expocentre in Topeka, Trump declared it an “historic night,” not long after signing the paperwork to make Kavanaugh’s status official. By Jill Colvin.

— KANSAS STATE FAIR-ATTENDANCE — Attendance at Kansas State Fair increased this year, thanks to sunny weather, popular concerts and new activities.
— KANSAS STATE-PUTNAM SCHOLARSHIPS — Kansas State will stop offering the Putnam Scholarship to students.
KANSAS CITY — Turns out the Kansas City Chiefs can play a little defense, too. The Chiefs’ beleaguered bunch forced Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles into five turnovers, including a pick-6 by defensive tackle Chris Jones, and Kansas City merely had to supplement with the NFL’s highest-scoring offense in a 30-14 romp over the Jaguars on Sunday.
