A lot of negative reaction to last week's announcement that Wichita's new Triple-A baseball team will be known as the Wind Surge.  Mayor Jeff Longwell tells KNSS News  "I think it's somethbing that will grow on us". He says he thinks "it's a good lookin' logo".First-day sales of the new team logo merchandise reportedly set a record for minor leage baseball.

At Tuesday's meeting, the Wichita City Council will be asked to approve up to 40 million dollars in bonds for facility expansion at Spirit AeroSystems. It's part of more than 200 million dollars in bonds for the city's biggest employer over the past few years ... aimed at creating hundreds of jobs. 

Longwell commented during Mondays with the Mayor ... on the Steve and Ted in the Morning Show on KNSS.
