In the 1960’s, most rural areas of Kansas had no organized fire protection, and Blue Township was no different.  One night in 1966, a fire broke out in the K-Hill Engine Service shop on east Highway 24. Owners John and Wilma Brooks got a call from neighbors that it was on fire, and began frantically making phone calls to get help.  There was no “911” in those days, so…

Heads up: A public safety warning regarding possibly tainted foreign candy from our friends at Wamego PD. Any other cases of this in the region should be reported to a law enforcement agency. ... See MoreSee Less

PUBLIC SAFETY ALERT Today the Wamego Police Department received a report from several citizens of candy that was possibly tainted. The candy is in the shape of a small baby bottle and is labeled "Bibi Frutix" and according to the label was made in Mexico. (See attached photograph.) While this is an isolated report it is unknown where the candy has been distributed as the candy was not purchased at a local store. The powdery substance - normally sugar - has not been analyzed at this time. However several people who sampled contents reported the powder had a chemical taste and two people had adverse reactions. This release is being distributed in the interest of public safety. Anyone who has this labeled candy should take appropriate actions for their safety and may contact their local law enforcement agency if they have questions.

There is absolutely NO BURNING allowed in Pottawatomie County today. If you see something, call it in. Oh, and smokers, #KeepYourButtsToYourselves. Your cigarette flicked out of the car window is not only littering, but can ultimately spark the next big wildland fire. It's the first full week of December and we are seeing fire conditions reminiscent of the first week in March. Be fire wise, Kansas. ... See MoreSee Less
