    Several Portlanders say they received a strange phone call last night: a recorded message asking how they planned to vote on fluoridating the water in Wichita, Kansas.
    Voters in Wichita rejected fluoridation in a city vote last Nov. 6. As WW reported earlier this week, the Wichita campaign was spearheaded by real-estate developer James Garvey, who founded a group called Kansas Taxpayers Network to "represent Kansas taxpayers at the state and local level by advocating limited taxes and government spending to create a free market environment."
