McLouth High senior lifts her way into male-dominated sport

Jeri is an amazing role model for young ladies, especially in a society filled with unrealistic ideals of body image. I think what's great about Jeri is she's beautiful on the outside & even more beautiful on the inside!

Work it girl...go Jeri go ;)

Third child dies after car accident in Jefferson County

Unimaginable heartache for the family of these innocent children.

We all know that this was a fatal mistake to not buckle her children...it's unimaginable and beyond comprehension for soooo many people. That's not passing judgement, it's stating fact...it was a fatal mistake. In the face of this horrific tragedy, I hope and pray that people will share this story so that others will come to understand the importance of using proper safety equipment (from car seats to seat belts). As an adult, that's your decision (though it's against the law), but children don't have that option as they rely on the adults in their lives for their basic needs - including vehicle safety. Be vigilant when you get into a car, even if you aren't driving to check to make sure those not old enough to make the decision to buckle up...ARE!

Heartbreaking. Prayers to the family and friends of all the families involved

Quote from his dad:
“His pain has been lifted,” Olson said. “He didn’t lose to cancer … it could not quash the spirit of the man.”

Tonganoxie student in a class by himself

CONGRATULATIONS CONNOR!!!

Connor, I think you nailed it with your quote:

“Tonganoxie, Kansas, has to be one of the strongest and most resilient communities I know,”

You've most certainly helped solidify that sentiment with your strength and courage during this difficult journey you've been on - you've been a role model to many young people (and adults!) facing challenges in their lives.

You & your family are in many peoples thoughts & prayers!

Pileups close highways

It was TOTAL white out conditions on 24/40 & I could not imagine what I70 was like! Of course, there were people driving entirely too fast for the conditions. An accident at 158th & 24-40 had several police working the scene and suddenly out of the white blur of snow came an SUV who saw the lights and such on his side of the highway and hit his brakes causing him to spin across the median and in to oncoming westbound traffic.

Hopefully, no one was seriously injured in any of the numerous accidents we saw today.

Tonganoxie couple taking retirement as an opportunity to move somewhere warmer: Kenya

It's clear you don't even know the Korbs as they are WONDERFUL people who care about the education of young people regardless of their background. Those 'needy' Americans that you mention have open access to an education regardless of their race, religion, sex, ability to pay, etc. They have spent years making a positive difference in the lives of others, not only in their 30+ years in education, but in their personal lives.

John & Cindy are setting an amazing example of what a difference we can each make in the world...from our own community to another half way around world. They have faith in God, compassion toward others and a strong desire to continue to share the gift of education with those who aren't offered what some tend to take for granted.

Tonganoxie student receives surprise graduation ceremony

Congratulations Austin! My son was at the ceremony yesterday and it was 'awesome' as he put it. He said his hands hurt from clapping so hard - there were kids hollerin'...some had tears in their eyes...he felt very fortunate to be there and share in the moment. It's something he will never forget.

Austin is a role model - although my son didn't know Austin personally, he is inspired by his story. Austin has come a long way in this journey and he has a determination to not let this hold him back from living his life and moving forward each day!

Thanks for the update on Austin & for the attached video!
