Numerous accidents on Interstate 70 leave at least eight injured

Most of the issues were on bridges and other elevated surfaces.

KDOT crews have been out treating. No big issues on the turnpike since early this morning. Still a couple slide offs on K-10 in Johnson County.

Amber Alert for Texas girl canceled Wednesday morning

This should say Interstate 35 instead of U.S. Highway 35.

Highway 35 runs between West Virginia and northern Indiana.

Armored vehicle, recently bought by Lawrence police with federal grant, appearing on city streets

Lenexa Police have a Vietnam era M-113 APC, which even says "RESCUE VEHICLE" on the side of it. The department has owned the vehicle since the late 60's or early 70's. Officers restored it on their own time after its military service.

Johnson County has a Lenco BearCat (Ballistic Engineered Armored Response Counter Attack Truck) which is used by agencies throughout the county. (photo from 2008)

Shawnee Police have an older APC. I am unsure of the make/model but here is a photo of it on a scene from 2008.

My point being, police purchasing/using armored vehicles is nothing new. Higher crime rates of today just mean the vehicles are being used more often. As Lawrence Police mention, they plan on using their new truck for serving warrants, something which in days gone by was done in a much different fashion than it is today.

Better safe than sorry. Better to have one of these at your disposal instead of trying to hide behind the modular V8 of a Crown Victoria or the tiny "ballistic panels" that were an expensive option for inside the front doors of a 2006-newer Crown Victoria. An option which most departments chose not to purchase.

Man struck by vehicle in Lawrence, transported to Kansas City by air ambulance

I took some time off last week, July 4-11 so I may have missed something during that time. There really has not been that much going on lately. Which is good, for everyone who isn't in the news business.

As for the RadioReference/Broadcastify scanner feed. I know the previous feed provider and he had to move out of state. In about the last week or two a new feed provider has stepped up. I have not talked to that person or had much of a chance to listen to the new feed yet. From the description at least, it appears to monitor about the same things as the previous one. Lawrence Police are not listed in the description but, they are dispatched on the same talkgroup as the Sheriff's Deputies. http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/fe...

Thanks for reading!

Not your ordinary Monday morning

Thanks, Termcd4. I was wondering about that. One dispatcher referred to it as Cross Town while another called it Playerz.

Seven arrests on nearly 20 different charges this morning.

I am going by the County Sheriff's Office Booking Log which shows he is charged with Purchase/Possession/Consumption Alcohol by Minor. I'm assuming it is still "minor" due to him being under 21? I am honestly not sure on this one.
