Sound Off: Power pole replacement

Why was Westar replacing a power pole in the 1600 block of New Hampshire Street after 8 p.m. on Memorial Day?

The power pole had been damaged by storms moving through the area, and it wasn’t safe to leave it in that condition, according to Erin La Row, a Westar Energy spokeswoman. Westar has work crews available for such tasks even on holidays.
