I'm sorry but would one of the three previous posters please show me where in the article "I-70" is mentioned?I see no mention of I-70 but everyone seems to really be happy to take the LJ-W to task for mentioning it. But I'm old and my eyes aren't what they used to be. Yeah that must be it.

"According to a Kansas Highway Patrol report, Joseph S. Ward was driving a 2002 Jeep south on Interstate 435 and exiting onto Kansas Highway 10 westbound." Where is I -70 in Joco? If he crashed from southbound I-435 to westbound K-10 where did I-70 come into play? And when was I-70 moved to Joco?

How can the LJW win any award when their online software program lacks the photo support that all the national news services offer. I wonder? I wonder if their just slacking when they could do a better job with photo support with all their reporting. There is plenty of pop-up adds but very little photo supporting of news which could be a budget problem.

"Interstate 435 and exiting onto Kansas Highway 10 westbound"That little curve gets me sometimes too, because it's still 65 MPH.
