The site of a water main break is shown near UCLA Wednesday July 30, 2014, in Los Angeles. A ruptured 93-year-old water main on Tuesday left the UCLA campus awash in 8 million gallons of water in the middle of California's worst drought in decades, stranding people in parking garages and flooding the school's storied basketball court less than two years after a major renovation. (AP Photo/Nick Ut)LOS ANGELES (AP) — The rupture of a nearly century-old water main that ripped a 15-foot hole through Sunset Boulevard and turned a swath of the University of California, Los Angeles, into a mucky mess points to the risks and expense many cities face with miles of water lines installed generations ago.

FILE - In this Aug. 19, 2013 file photo U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp speaks in Wichita, Kan.

That anger has now come back to haunt Huelskamp, a tea party favorite, in the waning days before the Aug. 5 GOP primary. (AP Photo/Wichita Eagle, Brian Corn)WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Eleven biofuel plants dot the vast expanse of western and central Kansas, where farm fields stretch to the horizon and corn and sorghum are the backbone of the rural economy.
