Tonganoxie man pleads no contest to false reporting charge; agrees to pay restitution

I find one of the most frustrating components of this story is that a black man was blamed for this- after the "manhunt" that went on in 2007 over the man who fled Topeka, this simply put people even more on the alert against a person who did not even exist and likely furthered stereotypes...

KU couple cruises at Tonganoxie Days race

You know, it's nice and all that a local boy came back to run this race, but why spend virtually the entire article on him and his girlfriend? What about the 54-year-old first place 10K finisher who likely would have smoked Huseman if he had run the 5K? Why not include anything about the top female finisher for the 10K? How about at least equal coverage for the 10K runners who certainly deserve at least that considering a 6.2 mile race is far more physically and mentally challenging than a 3.1 mile race? Disappointing journalism.
