An instinctual reaction to swerve can cause something much worse, a rollover. Be safe, survive.

When you respond to a car vs deer accident and a runaway semi zips between you and a building 30' feet away, all you can do is stand there with your mouth open and hope no one gets injured. By the way, nobody got hurt.

The deadline to get your child on the Angel Tree is November 15th. If you need a little help this year, stop by the Health Dept or the Solid Waste Dept in the Courthouse to submit an application.

A group of motorcyclists on a toy run from Sedgwick County to Sumner County seen our post about putting on an Angel Tree motorcycle run and felt compelled to ride in with some gifts. Our sincerest thank you to Captn Mapache and friends, the First Baptist Church for hosting and to the church members for the refreshments. It was truly an honor to spend some time with such phenomenal people.

FYI, The date for the Angel Tree run has yet to be determined. However, a group from Wichita is riding in tomorrow with random gifts but the run is not associated with the Angel Tree run. We're still waiting on the actual trees to be up and running before we can set a date. Sorry if there has been any misunderstanding. Will announce as soon as we can. Thanks to all that have reached out.

Would there be any interest from motorcyclists from our area in a toy run for the Chautauqua County Angel Tree? The Angel Tree is very much in need of toys for less than fortunate children in our county and if you're like us, we're always looking for a reason to ride. The First Baptist Church has committed to feeding riders who participate and will help with the distribution of gifts. Please share this post and if you want to ride this event, let us know by commenting here as we're trying to gauge interest before setting this up. Sincerely, Chief

Pay attention or pay $420, your call.

Other than moderate flooding from runoff in several areas around town, Sedan seems to have suffered no storm damage.

The National Weather Service stated the storm that produced a tornado near Fairfax, OK just before 8pm is expected to weaken before it reaches Chautauqua County. Please stay tuned to weather reports as this storm approaches.

"October is zombie preparedness month in Kansas" If you’re equipped to handle the zombie apocalypse then you’re prepared for tornadoes, severe storms, fire and any other natural disaster Kansas usually faces. Preparing for a zombie disaster involves coming up with an emergency plan, gathering adequate survival supplies and getting trained in life saving skills like CPR and First Aid. Are you prepared?

Did you know City Hall doesn't dispatch Police? For Police assistance, please call dispatch at 725-3108 or 911 if an emergency.

Cellular phone call scams at an all time high and expected to nearly double. A recent report states that in 2017, 3.7% of total calls were fraudulent. In 2018 that number spiked to 29.2% and is expected to rise to 44.6% by early 2019. Folk's, the only way to combat these predators is knowledge. It may seem silly, but talk to your loved ones, look out for your elders and remind them, "NOBODY NEEDS MONEY RIGHT NOW." Not the IRS, not a bill collector, a computer virus technician or even your beloved grandson in jail or the hospital. Don't give out any information, hang up immediately and get in touch with local law enforcement or someone you trust to discuss the call. A few minutes to process the situation could literally save you thousands of unrecoverable dollars. Money you'll never get back while emboldening criminals to continue. Let's rob them back by taking away their power.

Any information on those responsible for shooting cats, please call (620)725-3108. Any information on the whereabouts of these missing cats, please contact the number on the flyer.

We are requesting the public's assistance to please give us a call at (620)725-3108 if you seen or heard anything suspicious during that 48 hour window. Thank you.

You will likely receive a text Thursday titled, "Presidential Alert," as FEMA tests the wireless emergency alert system (WEA). All cell towers nationally will broadcast the alert at 2:18 p.m. EDT on September 20, 2018. You cannot opt out and will not be billed by your carrier for emergency alerts on this system.

Please be observant tomorrow as there may be a dramatic increase in motorcycle traffic in town. The biker feed, being held at the fair building, is to promote the area and hopefully raise money for various charities.

As it pertains to technology, and more specifically apps, being social these days has evolved far beyond what any parent could possibly keep up with. What is fun and enticing to teenagers are precisely the shadows where predators lurk. Folk's, pay attention to what your kids are doing. They may very well be unknowingly sharing information, pictures and their very location to pedophiles waiting to pounce. Yes, it could absolutely happen here, in your town, to your child. Beyond the potential for predators lies avenues for bullying, secret sharing of messages, pics and videos containing behavior that would shock most parents. Stay vigilant, these are dangerous times in which we live. This link is as up to date as could be found but do keep in mind, apps are always evolving and new ones are created almost daily.

Attention parents and students of Chautauqua County USD 286. Administrators from the district, the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office, Chautauqua County Emergency Managment and the Sedan Police Department recently met to discuss school security for the upcoming school year. Of the many topics discussed, the decision was made to increase Police presence during school hours and school related functions. I wanted to inform the community so you're not alarmed as you'll undoubtedly notice the increase in and around the schools. The safety of our children is a priority to all of us so please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions, comments or concerns related to this or any other topic affecting our community. Sincerely, Chief K. Richardson
