News Headlines for Sunday, November 1, 2015

Here's a summary of the day's AP news headlines for our area, mostly Kansas.

Royals Advance Towards Series Crown

NEW YORK (AP) _ The Kansas City Royals rallied for three runs in the eighth inning to beat the New York Mets 5-3 and are now a game away from winning the World Series. Edinson Volquez will start Game Five tonight (Sunday) at 7:15 p.m. Central Time. He pitched Game One for Kansas City only hours after his father died.


WSU Chapel Renovations Challenged

WICHITA, Kan.  (AP) _ A member of a panel discussing renovations of a Wichita State University chapel agrees the chapel should be open to all races and faiths, but says that's only if those using it are encouraged to become Christians. Lisa Ritchie was the only opponent of the renovations on the panel, which held a public hearing Friday to air disagreements about renovations.  The May renovation of the Harvey D. Grace Memorial Chapel removed an altar and replaced pews with chairs. Supporters said it made the chapel a more flexible worship space. Opponents contended the renovations favored Muslims over Christians.  The Wichita Eagle reports Wichita State vice president Eric Sexton said a committee overseeing the chapel will consider the input from Friday's meeting and might make changes.  


Lawmakers Urged to take Stand Against "Revenge Porn"

  KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A Kansas City-area woman who was a victim of ``revenge porn'' is working to persuade Kansas and Missouri legislators to make the practice illegal.  Alecia Clemmons says that after someone posted naked pictures of her taken by a former husband several years ago, she had to move, change her job and endure a torrent of abusive emails and messages.  Clemmons then discovered neither state prohibits sharing such pictures if they were taken during an intimate relationship, even if the victim has not given consent. It is illegal in both states to photograph people without their knowledge and use the pictures for blackmail.  The Kansas City Star reports that Clemmons testified earlier this year on proposed bills in both states but neither measure made it out of committee.  


 Identity Theft Case Still a Nightmare for Victim

 WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Texas man whose identity was stolen decades ago by a convicted child sex offender can't keep a job, pay his bills or support his children.  But a case unfolding in Kansas is offering Marcus Calvillo hope of finally clearing his name, after federal prosecutors charged a Kansas inmate with assuming Calvillo's entire persona.  Calvillo had tried for years to reclaim his name when he read an Associated Press story about an ID theft case involving a Houston teacher. He contacted the prosecutor involved, who calls Calvillo's situation ``especially horrible.'' The man using Calvillo's identity had his first legal run-in as a teenager. His fingerprints, and subsequent convictions, became linked to Calvillo's name
