To Whom It May Concern:


Under the Kansas Open Records Act § 45-215 et seq., I am requesting a copy of the following documents be provided: email correspondence, and underlying documentation contained within, between March 7, 2020, and the date that this request is ultimately fulfilled that was sent to, from, or copied to Terrie Garrison containing "National Beef" or "Beef" AND any of the following non-case sensitive key-strings:


  • "2019-nCoV"
  • "coronavirus"
  • "COVID-19"
  • "COVID" 

The Kansas Open Records Act requires a response time within three business days. If access to the records I am requesting will take longer than that time period, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.


We are willing to pay for the cost of the staff’s time and duplication of records. For any charge anticipated to be in excess of $250.00, please contact us so that we can determine whether we would prefer to inspect the file and flag the records that we would like to have reproduced.


Please provide any responsive records in electronic format by email attachment, if at all possible. For any documents that are withheld on the grounds of a FOIA exemption, privilege, or other reason, please justify each omission separately by reference to specific exemptions of the Act, and release all reasonably segregable portions of otherwise exempt material. Include information contained in the material that otherwise would be considered non-­responsive to the specific request. We reserve the right to appeal any decisions. 


Thanks in advance for your assistance and do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email with any questions using the numbers below.


If you need to discuss this request, I can be reached at 573-239-7440. Thank you for your consideration of my request.
