 "Summer of Mercy" Anniversary Observed

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A week of anti-abortion activities planned to observe the 25th anniversary of the "Summer of Mercy" protests in Wichita has begun with a prayer gathering. About 10 members of Operation Save America gathered Saturday at a prayer tent near the Wichita convention center. The week long event is in observance of the 1991 Summer of Mercy when thousands of anti-abortion activists gathered in Wichita, sparking protests that led to nearly 2,700 arrests.


Wichita Man Sentenced in Sting Operation

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita, Kansas, man has been sentenced to a year and a half in federal prison on prostitution-related charges connected to a sting operation targeting massage parlors. Fifty-one-year-old Kay Tee was sentenced Friday in Wichita. That's where he was convicted in April of one count each of attempting to entice a person to cross state lines to engage in prostitution, using a telephone in furtherance of prostitution and money laundering.


Film Incentive Program Awards First Rebate

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City has awarded its first $60,000 rebate to a feature film written by an actor from  Overland Park, Kansas. The film, "All Creatures Here Below" is about a couple hiding out in Kansas City, and has been awarded the first ever rebate from the Kansas City Film Development Program. The $60,000 rebate was made possible by a city ordinance passed earlier this year that allows the city to offer a local film incentive. The state of Missouri no longer offers tax credits for filmmakers.
