    Marques Davis was in the infirmary at Hutchinson Correctional Facility on Dec. 27, 2016, back with the same symptoms he’d been complaining of for months, including numbness and weakness in his legs. But on that day there was something new. “It feels like something is eating my brain,” Davis told Corizon Health employees who staff the prison infirmary. According to a lawsuit filed in federal court Monday, something was infecting his brain: a fungus that slowly killed the 27-year-old over the next four months, as he pleaded for help while his vision blurred, his speech slurred and he became so disoriented that he drank his own urine

    It’s no secret that state government in Kansas is smaller than it used to be. But you might be surprised at how much smaller.

    If there’s such a thing as reverse hyperbole, market manager Willie Blake is demonstrating it when he says the store “had a little water intrusion … which shut us down.” A fire suppression line broke at the store on North Rock Road just south of 21st Street, and it led to more than “a little” damage. “They estimated about 170,000 gallons of water came into the showroom,” Blake says
