Kansas traditional Republicans: The record

As Kansas Republicans decide who to vote for in next week's primary election, moderate senate incumbents and many newspapers urge voting for those Republicans who promote a “reasonable,” “balanced,” and “responsible” approach to Kansas government.

DeBoer plan for Wichita downtown redevelopment largely realized

It's not only the organ and recital hall, but the people who have been in charge of WSU's organ program and the Rie Bloomfield Organ Series, which brings in accomplished concert organists from around the world for a series of five or so recitals each year.
