The City of Lansing's Independence Day fireworks show is this Friday evening at KNB park on 4H Rd. After the fireworks are finished, Officers will be directing traffic at the intersection of DeSoto Rd and 4H Rd (4 way stop). An alternate route is to turn right out of the park and go west on Gilman Rd to 171st street (stop sign), take a right on 171st to Tonganoxie Rd (stop sign), continue North to Eisenhower Rd and turn right. There are no gravel road with this route. We anticipate a large turnout for this event and those wanting to avoid traffic may want to avoid going east out of the park. We work to keep the traffic flowing but it does take time to get the cars through that intersection and the park cleared out. Thank you for your understanding.

This morning Officer John Gable and myself participated in the Kansas Special Olympics torch run. The photo's are twenty years apart. It has been our honor to participate in the Torch run for 20 years.
