The head of the League of Women Voters of Kansas is hoping that seeing the governor's schedule could reveal the names of candidates for an open court seat. The league has filed an open records request for the calendars of Gov. Sam Brownback and some of his staff.
Members of Kansas' all-Republican congressional delegation agreed the coming weeks are critical to the future of the federal health care law, though they are still unsure how to stop it.
U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp urged the Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association members at their annual conference in Wichita to tell people in Washington how the new health care law affects small businesses.
Gov. Sam Brownback says he's accepted the resignation of state Budget Director Steve Anderson. The governor commended his work and diligence.
Anderson will leave his office, effective the end of this month. He says he's taking more time with his wife and sons.
Anderson is a certified public accountant and managing partner of Anderson, Reichert and Anderson, LLC. The governor named him budget director in late 2010. As a member of the Governor's Economic Growth Team, he worked to strengthen the economy and create jobs for Kansans.
In 2005, 17-year-old Robert Haberlein and two other people entered a Dollar General store in Bonner Springs. It was late in the day and only one person, 44-year-old Robin Bell, was working in the store. The three overpowered Bell and took her into the back of the store, forcing her to open the safe. They beat her before shooting and killing her.
