In the news:

• A program that was meant to provide dental care for low-income pregnant women in Kansas has never gotten off the ground because of a lack of funding to administer it.

• It began as a small fundraiser in the church basement with a boom box and a burrito production line. Now, 28 years later, there’s no boom box at St. John’s annual Mexican Fiesta, but there are plenty of burritos and a whole lot of music.

• A new 183,000-square-foot, six-story addition to Kansas University Hospital is scheduled to open in spring 2011.

In sports:

• After spending three days near the top of the leaderboard, former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland fell back a bit on Sunday.
