Welcome to The Eagle’s newest blog. Keep coming back and you’ll see more of what goes on behind the political scene and more of what The Eagle’s metro reporters hear as they walk the halls of power both in Wichita and around the state.
Sometimes we’ll write about the first whispers of a larger plan, like a mayoral candidate’s plan to make Wichita a wireless internet city. Other times it will be a glimpse of someone’s life, like Sedgwick County Commissioner Tom Winter’s fishing trip. We’ll put out rumors, like those about Wichita School District Superintendent Winston Brooks becoming the next education commissioner. And we’ll share the news we’re tracking, like Sen. Sam Brownback’s campaign to become the next president.
And it’s not just politics. We’ll track city organizations large and small, telling you about the scene at community events, like the Urban League of Kansas rally.
We’re also hoping you’ll vent your views, give us new ideas and have open discussions on the posting boards. So, enjoy. We have 50 posts below this one to get started.
