HAYS, Kan. (AP) - Governor Sam Brownback has been met on a trip to western Kansas by public school teachers and retired educators protesting a new state law eliminating tenure. Brownback traveled yesterday to the Sternberg Museum of Natural History in Hays. Outside the museum, about 25 people protested the anti-tenure law. Teachers say the law strips them of protections against arbitrary firings.

GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) - A camp for children with cancer will be held this summer, even after a fire closed the site where it had been held for more than 30 years.
