There’ll be no fans in the stands to start the football season at the University of Kansas.

The U-S-D-A has extended a program that lets all kids get free meals from their school if they’re learning remotely.

The number of COVID-19 cases continues to increase in Joplin and the rise is happening in concert with more activities and society returning to normal.

Economists are warning that a lapse in pandemic relief programs could mean 10s of millions of Americans won’t be able to make the rent.

The Kansas News Service reports on health, the many factors that influence it and their connection to public policy.
