Today in Kansas Report: September 9, 2015

A new state report says a majority of Kansas public school students aren’t on track to be college-ready based on standardized English and math test scores. It was the first data from revised tests aligned with multistate Common Core academic standards. Department officials acknowledged that they’re not pleased with the results but said they expect significant future improvements.
A formal sentencing hearing for the Missouri man convicted of killing three people at Jewish sites in Overland Park is set for November 10. Jurors recommended the death penalty yesterday for Frazier Glenn Cross. It’s unclear if the sentence will be carried out though, considering he’s in poor health already and 74 years old.
Preliminary data shows the number of 2.5 magnitude or above earthquakes in Harper and Sumner counties has decreased since Kansas regulators set limits on drilling wastewater disposal. The Kansas Corporation Commission is recommending keeping the existing limits.
The U.S. oil and gas production boom of the past decade has an unwanted side effect: Millions of gallons of briny wastewater have spilled onto land and flowed into waterways, often doing severe damage. An Associated Press analysis of federal records and records in 11 states, including Kansas, finds some 21,651 spills of oilfield wastewater between 2009 and 2014. They add up to more than 175 million gallons. And officials acknowledge many releases are never reported.
Kansas State will pay a $5,000 fine after its marching band made a formation of the Jayhawk mascot and what appeared to be a man’s naughty bits during this weekend’s halftime show. The school says the band director will miss the game against Kansas in November and that university officials have to approve future halftime shows. The Big 12 warned of potential sportsmanship and ethical conduct violations.
