Good Monday morning and thanks for joining me for The Rundown, news headlines from K R P S for August 10. 

Mainly sunny and hot today throughout Southeast Kansas, also a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms this afternoon after 4, a high today of 96. Mostly cloudy tonight, chance of storms increases to 60 percent, a low of 70. 

The leader of the Kansas House of Representatives says he tested positive for the coronavirus in mid-July and had to be hospitalized. 

Wichita’s mayor says the city will likely extend its mask ordinance. The ordinance passed last month is set to expire on August 11th.

This could be the week that we hear about whether THE Division 2,  Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association, also known as the M I Double-A, will play fall sports this year.

 Corinne Boyer of the Kansas News Service explains what challenges stand in the way of an accurate count. 

Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple says the city will likely extend its mask ordinance set to expire next week. 

Last week’s primary election in Missouri could be a blueprint of what elections could look like in the coming years. Kansas City, St. Louis, and Boone County, where the University of Missouri is located, are known for voting for progressive movements such as Amendment 2, which passed last week. 

That’s it for The Rundown, news headlines from K R P S, be sure to subscribe to The Rundown in the Apple iTunes Store or Google podcasts. Talk to you tomorrow morning
