TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Union officials have announced a tentative agreement with management at the Topeka Goodyear Tire and Rubber plant.

The Topeka plant employs 1,550 workers, with 1,400 covered by the USW.


Drop in Voter Registrations on Hold

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas saw a sharp drop over the past week in the number of prospective voters whose registrations were on hold for failing to present proof of their U.S. citizenship to election officials. The secretary of state's office says such registrations on hold peaked at about 18,500 on Monday. By Friday, the number had fallen to fewer than 17,200. The decline was about 7 percent. The decrease came after a move by the state Department of Revenue.
