    It flew fast like a jet, made a whirling sound and left an odd glow. That's how an amateur photographer described a flying machine he spotted in the skies near Rose Hill on Friday. The UFO world is now paying attention to his photograph. On Monday, the photo appeared under the headline "Weird Object in Wichita," on UFO Digest, a Canadian Web site. The object looks like some kind of new-technology fighter jet, possibly a prototype, said UFO Digest editor and publisher Dirk Vander Ploeg. Jarrod Bartlett, spokesman for Boeing Integrated Defense Systems-Wichita, said in an e-mail that he checked...

Holick told reporters Aug. 16 that the church, which has about 150 members, is being investigated for political involvement simply because it speaks against abortion. He called the investigation a violation of the churchs First Amendment rights. Under federal tax law,...

    A 23-year-old Wichita man shot himself in the wedding tackle during a bodged kidnap attempt, The Wichita Eagle reports. The unnamed perp, along with two accomplices, "attempted to kidnap a teenager in a dispute over stereo speakers" in South Wichita on Monday afternoon. The shooter first fired a shot at the intended victim, but missed. He then "jammed the gun back into the waistband of his pants", at which point it went off and popped a cap in his left testicle. This unsurprisingly caused him to "cringe" which provoked a second discharge which hit him in the left calf. He...

    Where Wichita's housing director Mary Kay Vaughn sees a chance to rebuild faltering neighborhoods, some property rights advocates see an opening for big government to snatch away people's homes. Early discussions about creating a redevelopment authority in Wichita have sparked polarized opinions. The Wichita City Council is considering setting up a five-member redevelopment authority that could acquire rundown properties and turn them over to developers who want to renovate them or build new houses, apartments or businesses in their place. The authority would get the properties by buying them from willing sellers, buying tax-foreclosed properties, or forcing unwilling property owners...

    National Catholic Reporter; 3/26/2004; Donovan, Gill While many families struggle to pay the rising cost of sending their children to Catholic schools, parishioners in one U.S. diocese don't worry about tuition--including the high cost of tuition for Catholic high schools. The children of active parishioners in the Wichita diocese attend Catholic schools tuition-free. A model of stewardship was initiated in Wichita diocese-wide in 1985 by Bishop Eugene Gerber (see "Wichita bishop took 'leap of faith' for stewardship." Parishioners embraced that model, which called for them to give generously of their time and their talents and to give as high a...
