LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas Relay official says it's unlikely extra security will be hired to work the track and field showcase this week in Lawrence.

Meet director Milan Donley says Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon makes relay officials aware that anything can happen at any time. But he says he doesn't think extra security will be added.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports spectators entering any event at Memorial Stadium on the university campus have had their backpacks and belongings searched since the Sept. 11 attacks.

The weather, not security concerns, will move two popular events from downtown Lawrence to the Douglas County Fairgrounds livestock arena. A forecast of heavy rains and cold will move the men's shot put to the arena Wednesday and the women's long jump on Thursday.
