TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Lottery Commission says Jan. 21
is the new deadline for submitting applications to manage a state-owned casino in southeast Kansas.
The commission's announcement Thursday follows Penn National Gaming Inc. pulling out of Cherokee County after it was awarded the

Reopening the application process means Cherokee and Crawford counties are in the running to host a casino.
Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten said nobody has expressed interest in southeast Kansas, but he is expecting bidders.
