Governor closes state offices Wednesday for day of mourning for President Bush

TOPEKA, Kan. – Governor Jeff Colyer issued an executive order today closing state offices on Wednesday to observe a day of mourning for President George H.W. Bush.

The order officially declared Dec. 5, 2018, as a legal holiday in observance of the National day of Mourning for President George H. W. Bush. The order noted that President Trump had declared Wednesday as a national day of mourning, and state of Kansas offices had been closed to mourn the deaths of other presidents.

The order also notes “President Bush’s courage, dedication and leadership” and his lifetime of public service.

In addition to state offices, the state court system will close Wednesday, with some exceptions, to observe the day of mourning. The Kansas Supreme Court gave chief judges of each of the state’s 31 judicial districts discretion to conduct court proceedings that day if in the best interest of justice.

In a press release, the Supreme Court advised anyone scheduled to be in state court Wednesday to check with the court where the proceeding is scheduled to verify whether it will take place. The Kansas Judicial Center will be closed.

KHP asks witnesses of Friday morning I-70 pursuit to contact investigator

Around 11:08 a.m. today, Friday, Nov. 16, 2018, Kansas Highway Patrol troopers on Interstate 70 near the Maple Hill exit, in Wabaunsee County, were involved in a pursuit with a stolen work truck out of Colorado. The suspect driver was eventually apprehended, but KHP is asking any witnesses of the incident to report what they saw.

During the pursuit, the suspect fled eastbound toward Topeka, passing on the shoulder. Within minutes of the pursuit beginning, the suspect drove through the median and into oncoming traffic. Due to concern for the public’s safety, troopers discontinued the pursuit. The suspect continued to travel eastbound in the westbound lanes of I-70 and traveled head-on toward a Wabaunsee County deputy who was driving with his emergency lights activated. The deputy took evasive maneuvers to avoid a head-on collision with the work truck.

The suspect exited I-70 onto Carlson Road, and pulled into a driveway in the 300 block of NW Carlson Road. He fled from the vehicle and was located hiding near a residence. Charges are pending, and the suspect driver will be booked into the Wabaunsee County Jail.

KHP is asking for anyone involved today, any victims the work truck swerved at, or persons who may have witnessed the work truck going eastbound in the westbound lanes, to contact them. Anyone who witnessed the event is asked to call KHP Technical Trooper Kody Olson at 785-296-3102.

Court orders Iowa man to pay damages, penalties for false claims to Kansas Lottery

TOPEKA, Kan. – An Iowa man has been ordered to repay the state of Kansas for his role in submitting false or fraudulent claims for payment to the Kansas Lottery in the form of rigged, winning lottery tickets, according to the Kansas Attorney General’s Office.

Eddie Raymond Tipton, a former computer-security official with the Multi-State Lottery Association, was accused of purchasing two lottery tickets from gas stations in Emporia and Overland Park in 2010, which Tipton had rigged by manipulating the multi-state lottery’s software.

Two other individuals, Amy Demoney and Christopher McCoulskey, submitted the tickets for payment to the Kansas Lottery in 2011 and were paid a total of $44,008 for the “winning” tickets. They then gave a portion of the proceeds to Tipton.

On Oct. 29, 2018, Shawnee County District Judge Franklin R. Theis ordered Tipton to pay the state $125,422.80, which is three times the net damages sustained by the Kansas Lottery. Tipton was also ordered to pay a $22,000 civil penalty and the costs of the attorney general’s investigation and lawsuit. Demoney and McCoulskey in June were separately ordered to pay damages totaling $16,805.60.
