TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is proclaiming Saturday as ``Small Business Saturday,'' urging consumers to shop at small, community retailers as the holiday shopping season begins in earnest.

The proclamation says that small businesses are ``the backbone'' of communities and major contributors to the Kansas economy.

Dan Murray, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, says shopping locally supports friends and neighbors and creates jobs.

``Small Business Saturday'' is a 4-year-old national campaign to get shoppers to support local retailers on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving.
