TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The head of the Kansas National Guard says officials will work closely with employees being laid off at maintenance facilities to help them find benefits and new jobs.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita officials say the city's bus system could be out of money by 2015, and taxpayers will be asked to help keep the buses running. The Wichita Eagle reports transit director Steve Spade is conducting an internal review of the system, including quality of service, accuracy of schedules and vehicle maintenance.


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Officials say recreation is again permitted on the Arkansas River through downtown Wichita. Recreation was prohibited for the last two weeks because the water was too high.
