  • National Adoption Day makes dreams come true in TopekaNational Adoption Day makes dreams come true in Topeka

    TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT)  – Children and their future families released balloons outside the Shawnee County Saturday to celebrate National Adoption Day. It's National Adoption Day. Around 20 children finalized their adoptions today at the Shawnee Co. Courthouse. pic.twitter.com/YX1W5R3Vhi — James Ryan (@JamesKSNT) November 18, 2017 Around 20 kids finalized their adoptions in Topeka, while hundreds more wait in foster care. It’s a day Billie Jo Bentley feared may never come. “My husband and I have been foster parents for six years and we were always wanting to adopt and we had our hearts broken,” said Billie Jo. In May 2016, Billie Jo and her husband Duane began fostering three kids, Thomas, Owen and Ruby, that would change their lives forever. This couple has been fostering these kids for over a year and a half but today their family is now complete. They made matching sweatshirts to celebrate. pic.twitter.com/N9n6SjVmPA — James Ryan (@JamesKSNT) November 18, 2017 “They’re beautiful kids. They’re inspiring and we wanted to complete our family with these three kids,” said Duane. The kids wore matching sweatshirts that said “Wanted Chosen Loved Adopted” on the front, with their new names and the date on the back. “It’s the best thing that has ever happened to me,” said Thomas. The excitement brought out a lot of tears as Billie Jo waited to officially become a mom. “It’s the start of our forever family. We finally got the family that God’s always intended for us to have,” said Billie Jo.

    MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Kamau Stokes had 14 points on 4-of-8 shooting and Kansas State started quickly on its way to a 71-49 victory over UC Irvine on Friday night. The Wildcats (3-0) used a balanced attack to jump to an 11-0 lead while the Anteaters (2-2) could not get anything to fall with a 0-for-6 start from the field. Xavier Sneed added 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting, including two 3-point baskets, for the Wildcats. UC Irvine briefly got the deficit within single digits at 39-30 early in the second half but could not overcome its turnovers and poor shooting. Brad Greene had nine points to lead the Anteaters. BIG PICTURE For the second straight ballgame, the Wildcats held an opponent to under 30 percent shooting. On the offensive end, Kansas State was inconsistent and careless with the basketball at times. The interior was another concern for Kansas State as they were outrebounded 39-37.

  • Mykhailiuk helps No. 4 Kansas rout South Dakota StateMykhailiuk helps No. 4 Kansas rout South Dakota State

    LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Svi Mykhailiuk scored a career-high 27 points, Lagerald Vick finished with 22 and fourth-ranked Kansas routed Summit League favorite South Dakota State 98-64 on Friday night. Udoka Azubuike added 17 points and Malik Newman had 13 for the Jayhawks (3-0), who shot 60 percent from the field and didn’t commit a turnover until midway through the second half. By that point, the Jackrabbits (3-1) were staring at a 30-point deficit. Mike Daum led South Dakota State with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Tevin King contributed 12 points and David Jenkins Jr. scored 10 off the bench. Once again without heralded freshman Billy Preston, the Jayhawks were forced to use the same reduced rotation that managed to top seventh-ranked Kentucky on Tuesday night. But their perilous lack of depth became crippling in the first half when Azubuike and Mitch Lightfoot picked up two fouls each. That forced coach Bill Self to use walk-on Clay Young in the post. The 6-foot-5 senior turned out to be a bright spot, too, keeping the ball moving on offense and handling the 6-9 Daum inside. The Jackrabbits’ leading scorer at more than 21 points per game had eight on 2-for-8 shooting in the first half, when Young spent a good chunk of time covering him. Nobody could cover Mykhailiuk, though. The senior from the Ukraine hit his first three shots – the Jayhawks made eight of their first nine – while getting into an easy rhythm. Even on the seemingly rare occasion that his jumper didn’t splash the net, it often rattled around the rim and dropped through to a thunderous ovation. Several of his baskets came on feeds from Devonte Graham, who didn’t hit a field goal until deep in the second half. He finished with eight points but also had 11 assists and five boards. PRESTON SITS Preston went through early warmups but remained on the bench as Kansas investigates an on-campus incident that raised questions about the “financial picture” of the car he was driving. Self declined to discuss the situation other than to say “we’re definitely going to hold him out until we get to the bottom of this.” Self did say he expects a resolution soon. BIG PICTURE South Dakota State can recover from its thumping in paradise with a trip to the Cayman Islands Classic up next. But their next trip to the Sunflower State figures to be just as tough: They visit No. 6 Wichita State on Dec. 5. Kansas cruised despite a shortened lineup again, and help is only a month away. Arizona State transfer Sam Cunliffe becomes eligible for a trip to Nebraska on Dec. 16, and there is a chance five-star prospect Silvio De Sousa from Florida’s IMG Academy enrolls at the semester break. UP NEXT South Dakota State plays Wyoming on Monday in George Town, Cayman Islands. Kansas continues a four-game home stand against Texas Southern on Tuesday night.

  • Latest Hollywood tear jerker is reality for a local familyLatest Hollywood tear jerker is reality for a local family

    TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) — It’s just a movie to most people, but for one local family, it’s reality. The latest Hollywood tear jerker, “Wonder” is about a boy who has Treacher Collins Syndrome. A condition that affects the development of bones and other tissue in the face. Makayla Hainline is 8 years old and has the syndrome, but she isn’t letting that stop her from lighting up a room. Makayla’s mom and dad had no idea she was going to be born with Treachers Collins, but when they did figure it out, it didn’t matter. “My husband took my hand and said this is our daughter and were going to raise her just like we raised our other daughter,” Angie Hainline said. “This is the four of us and if they can’t take it, then they don’t need to be a part of our life.” Makayla’s family agrees one of the hardest parts is when people stare. “If people would just say, hey you know we notice that she’s a little different, can you explain or do you want to talk about it, just ask questions, don’t just stare,” Angie Hainline said. “People stare at her and I think its very rude,” Makayla’s sister Mariah said. “And I literally step in front of her and I usually stare back, like how does it feel to be stared at.” Some days are harder than others, like January 27th, when Makayla had to be life-flighted to the hospital. Angie Hainline says even in the toughest of times, Makayla is the purpose of their family. “It’s like you know what, God gave her to us for a reason and he made our family a lot stronger and he knew she had a purpose and it was to be a part of our life,” Angie said. The three of them like to karaoke in the car, to see who’s best. “I love hearing their laugh, like that’s the best thing, even if you’re having a bad day, just hearing them two back there cracking up, it can’t help but put a smile on your face,” she said. And when Makayla was asked what else she wanted to say about her family, she only had one answer. “We’re a strong family,” Makayla Hainline said. “That’s a good thing to add, we are a strong family,” Angie Hainline said. Makayla said no matter what comes their family’s way they’ll take it on together. Even though Makayla’s family has already seen the movie Wonder, she and her classmates will be seeing it together on Tuesday morning. And doctors consider Treacher Collins Syndrome a rare disorder. It affects about 1 in 50,000 newborns worldwide. Some symptoms include small upper and lower jaws, ears, and cheekbones. And while there are treatments to help make life a little easier, there is no known cure.

    TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) — The Kansas Bar Foundation is dedicating their center in downtown Topeka after the late Justice Robert L. Gernon. He lost his battle to cancer in 2005, but his impact on the legal community will last a lifetime. His daughter, Rebecca Gernon, spoke at the ceremony. She remembers her father as a man dedicated to work and family. “He especially enjoyed it when the decision-making had a sense of humor,” she said. “I guess that was the part he liked about being a lawyer and a judge. He taught us that when we are faced with difficult moments with difficult decisions on a daily basis, that would help give us a chance to make things better.” Thanks to donations, the center was able to retire the mortgage on the building.

  • Local middle school faces overcrowdingLocal middle school faces overcrowding

    HOLTON, Kan. (KSNT) — Too many students, not enough space. Holton Middle School is facing overcrowding problems and the school district is looking for a solution. Science teacher Travis Henry has taught at Holton Middle School for seven years. Lately he’s had to get creative with his small science classroom. “I have counters and I have counter space, so we have kids sitting on counter tops or I’ll change the chairs out and we’ll sit on the floor, or we’ll sit out in the hallway,” Henry said. “Sometimes we’ll be out of the room. Half of us will move and go do something else while the other half is doing something in the room.” The 40-year-old school building is designed to hold around 240 students. That’s about 80 students for each of its three grades. But next year’s 6th grade class could have as many as 100 students. As it is, there’s not room for the school to offer art classes or home economics. And the band class is already full. Holton Schools Superintendent Bob Davies said it shows how the town is growing. “Having overcrowding may not sound like a great problem, but it’s better than the alternative,” Davies said. He’s looking for a place to house next year’s 6th grade class. One possibility is the elementary school. “This annex building at the elementary school’s currently being used as office space, but it could be turned into classrooms for the 6th grade class.” Henry said apart from space issues, things are going well at the school. He’s concerned splitting the 6th grade off from the middle school building would make it difficult to prepare the students for high school. “I’d be a little nervous if we had to break that up, because I think that’s just going to break off a little of our flow,” Davies said. Superintendent Davies wants to make sure they do what’s best for the students. “We want to get everybody’s input and make the right decision, not a knee-jerk decision,” he said. He said he would like to have a plan for next year by March. He said the district is looking at a couple of other options as well, such as adding onto the middle school or renovating an old middle school building.

The police departments encourage those who are not traveling during Thanksgiving break to pay extra attention to activities surrounding your home and to exercise personal safety. Some tips and suggestions they made are: Keep doors and windows closed/locked. Keep premises well lit at night. Never let strangers know if you live alone. Plan several escape routes from your home. Do not walk or jog alone at night. Never open door to strangers; require ID of service or repair people. Lawrence Police and Riley County PD encourage the public to report crimes in progress to 911.

  • City gives updates on construction before holiday travelCity gives updates on construction before holiday travel

    TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) — Two major street projects will continue throughout the holiday season as weather permits. A third project will be opened to through traffic until spring. Wanamaker — 21st St. Intersection and 21st St. west of Wanamaker The city is on schedule to have the entire SW 21st St. and SW Wanamaker intersection (as well as SW 21st St. west of Wanamaker) open by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22. There will be minor additional work after Nov. 22, such as sidewalk completion and sod installation, that may require short term temporary lane restrictions. SW Wanamaker and SW 10th Intersection So far, the NE quadrant has been completed, while the SE quadrant is scheduled next. Once these two are complete, they city will determine whether the project should be winterized and reopened, or if construction on the remaining two quadrants on the west side should continue through the winter months. This is part of the larger SW Wanamaker from 4th to 10th St. Reconstruction Project that began May 15. The original completion date was Dec. 1, but the city modified the phasing at the request of businesses in that area, to allow the intersection at 10th and Wanamaker to remain open in the beginning phases of the project. N Kansas Ave — Curtis to Norris  The project came to a halt in late August after a heavy rain exposed a failed storm water sewer pipe. Design work has begun to replace the pipe and will be completed in the spring. At this time, the intersection of Kansas and Norris, and the other open section, is being temporarily patched and will be opened for the winter.

  • Rep. Jenkins says tax bill was “easy yes vote”Rep. Jenkins says tax bill was “easy yes vote”

    TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.) is back in Kansas after voting “yes” on the GOP’s new tax plan. While at her own job fair in Topeka, Jenkins said that casting one of the 227 “yes” votes wasn’t a difficult decision. “When you represent a district like mine in Kansas, you know it’s going to benefit the vast majority of Kansans, so it was an easy yes vote.” Thirteen other Republicans in the House of Representatives voted the other way. Jenkins believes they did so because their constituents don’t like the loopholes that were removed that helped the wealthiest Americans. As for Kansas, Jenkins says most economists say this plan will do great things for the state’s economy and help the most vulnerable. She says the plan has, “given a much needed tax break to hard working low-to-middle income families.” On the Senate side of things, Jenkins says she will let them work out if they will add the removal of the Affordable Care Act mandate.  If passed, both chambers will meet in a conference committee and work out the differences of the two plans.
