Debbie Carlock was simply going to catch up on some work at the Courthouse on Sunday afternoon. Never did she imagine what awaited her when she opened the doors! She heard water in the elevator shaft and soon realized she was standing in water! Apparently a water pipe had burst sometime Saturday and the Courthouse was flooded. After a few phone calls, help arrived and the clean-up has begun!
Rick Bullard and others help push the water out of the ground floor of the Courthouse.

It's a sign of the times for sure...the drought is effecting Lone Wolf Creek...which runs through Ruddick Park. Fish are dying and floating on the banks of the creek. The City has plans to remove some of the excess soil to deepen the creek for the future.

The extreme heat did not stop folks from turning our for the Annual Relay for Life event at Hutchinson. Things were a little different this year, with a 5K Walk, a kid's Fun Run and the event was only one night instead of the usual overnight.

A truck accident that occured last week on Interstate 20 sure left a big mess! Luckily the driver of the truck was not seriously injured, but crews had to close down part of the Interstate to clean up the oil-based paint. Thanks to Debby Mitchell for the photos.
