    One hell of a loud explosion/crash just happened near Alaska Junction. Anyone else catch that?

      Not related to this story but yes, somebody called 911 so police are being dispatched to check the area.

      I heard it, too, from 40th and Dakota. Very curious!

    Let’s get those shots for the virus 🦠 in this community so people can get their shots! Got a family member going to have open heart surgery and needs the shot!!

    Why is there such a lack of information about the vaccine supply? The state doesn’t really know anything it seems. It’s very discouraging.

Sorry, comment time is over.
