West Side Folk is thrilled to announce that it will present two very special concerts to benefit Kansas Public Radio, which recently received a $100,000 budget cut that represents about 20 percent of the annual funding KPR receives from the University of Kansas. Brother Sun and John Gorka are playing for reduced fees to do their part to help KPR, and all profits from these concerts will go to KPR.

Kidnapping cases are often complicated and tedious, but the case of Jacob Wetterling seemed like it should have been open and shut. Jacob was kidnapped in front of two of his friends one night in 1989 as they biked home on a dead-end street in St. Joseph, Minnesota. As law enforcement scrambled to find the boy and return him home, the town was ripped apart and the case seemed to go colder and colder.
