KPR-News-SummaryElection Group Rejects KS Request

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The U.S. Election Assistance Commission has rejected requests by Kansas, Arizona and Georgia to modify federal registration forms to allow their states to fully implement their proof-of-citizen voting laws. The decision late yesterday (FRI) came just hours before a court-imposed deadline in a lawsuit filed by Kansas and Arizona.


Trial Delay Sought in Wichita Would-Be Bomber

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Federal prosecutors are requesting more time to share evidence with lawyers for a man accused of trying to drive a van carrying what he thought was a bomb onto the tarmac at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport. A filing yesterday (FRI) also asks a federal judge the court to designate the case against avionics technician Terry Loewen as complex. The designation eases speedy trial concerns and gives both sides more time to prepare for a later trial. The trial is now set for February 18th.


Bank Robber Identified from Tape

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The suspect in a Wichita bank robbery was quickly apprehended after a relative recognized televised images of the bearded, balding man in sunglasses and a bright green jacket. Investigators said the man entered a Bank of America branch Thursday and gave a teller a note demanding that money be put in a bag. Twenty-five-year-old Matthew Greenlee of Lawrence, was charged yesterday with one federal count of bank robbery.

Emler was sworn in as a member of the Kansas Corporation Commission on yesterday (FRI), one day after the Senate voted 38-0 to confirm his appointment by Governor Sam Brownback.
