This morning at 9 a.m., Wichita State University will hold a remembrance ceremony to honor the 31 WSU football players, administrators, and school supporters who died in a plane crash in the Rocky Mountains in 1970.

KMUW's Abigail Wilson recently finished a documentary on how friends, family members, and survivors of the crash are faring, all these years later.

Abigail sat down with our Morning Edition host Kate Clause to talk about her project.

The National Transportation Safety Board has released its preliminary report on last week’s fatal plane crash in west Wichita.

The report confirms the details of the crash as reported by Wichita fire and police officials, but does not provide any clues on a possible a cause.

The NTSB report says the Cessna 310 was destroyed after the pilot declared an emergency and then hit the ground last Friday afternoon.

Kansas election officials are expected to begin removing the names of more than 31,000 prospective voters from their registration records Friday in line with the state's tough voter identification law, which requires applicants to prove their citizenship before casting a ballot.

At the annual Wichita Area Economic Outlook Conference today, experts predicted both the state and local economies will reflect small growth in the coming year when compared to national numbers.

If predictions from Wichita State University economist Jeremy Hill stand true, 2016 will be the best year for job growth in Wichita since 2008. Hill estimates growth for the city at 1.1 percent; for the state, he puts it at about 1.4 percent.

Some Kansas doctors will soon be participating in a massive new effort by the Obama administration to improve the nation’s healthcare system. Jim McLean of the KHI News Service has the details.

In today’s healthcare system doctors are rewarded for seeing as many patients as they can.

The $700 million “transforming clinical practice initiative” is aimed at reversing that, so quality of care is rewarded over volume.

Victim advocacy groups and supporters have organized a walk on the Wichita State University campus to heighten awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault.

The walk, called The Purple Mile, is designed to increase awareness and celebrate survivors of domestic violence.

Purple ribbons and lapel pins are worn throughout October to promote the high number of incidents locally and nationwide. So far this year in Wichita, there have been six reported victims of domestic violence homicides compared to four in 2014.
