TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A concession stand on the third floor of the Kansas Statehouse is changing hands after 39 years.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1JpvTvI ) reports that Kathy Dawson and her colleagues are expanding their dining business. They already run the cafeteria in the basement of the Docking State Office Building. Eventually, that cafeteria will be closed to make way for implosion of the building.

They’re taking over for Don Wistuba. He’s been blind since birth and has operated the Statehouse concession stand since 1976. He’s said his business has declined because offices once housed in the Capitol have moved to other buildings and because lobbyists provide free food to legislators.

Dawson also has been blind since birth. Blind people are given priority in operation of vending facilities in federal and state government buildings.
