Ray’s Station floods in Edgerton

Photo by Jenifer Shelton Bill Braun, son of Ray Braun who owned Ray’s station from 1948 – 2016, said he had never seen water as high as it was Aug. 28. “The station never flooded like this before,” Braun said. “When KC had their big flood in 1951 the water did get up to the back steps of the little house but never inside any of the buildings except for the basement under the office building.” In 2009 FEMA revised flood zone maps and moved the property into the flood plain, Braun said. “During some of the heavier rains, the north side of the highway would flood because the water had to go under that old bridge,” Braun said. The state raised the highway when the old bridge was replaced a few years ago. For a short time Aug. 28, flood waters made direct access to Edgerton impossible, and Edgerton City Hall opened two hours later at 10 a.m. Other residents also had difficulty getting to town. “It took me about a good hour to find a different way to get to work which is at Spring Hill Veterinary clinic because all the roads were closed, said Alison Shelton, Edgerton. “I finally left my house at 9 didn’t get to work until about 10 till 10.” Alsion said her parents, David and Jenifer Shelton, own livestock about five minutes...

JCAC discusses hangar repairs; phasing in increased rail rates

by Rick Poppitz Special to The Gardner News At the Aug. 23 meeting, Johnson County Airport Commission members had long discussion on the process of working with insurance companies for reimbursement of storm damage to hangars. Also considered were rail rate increases, tenant lease amendments and extensions, and the cost of a radar system. Insurance and hangar repairs Aaron Otto, executive director, said that he had signed off on repairs for Oscar and Romeo hangars at Olathe Executive Airport. “That timeline, the design time working with Burns and McDonnell on the repairs, was 40 days. So that timeline is now underway, hopefully we’ll have those designs by the end of September,” said Otto. The design plans will then be incorporated into a larger bid package that will be put out for bid by the county. Otto also talked about the Papa T-Hangar which has been deemed too expensive to repair and will be rebuilt. Design for that is about two weeks along and should be done around the end of October. Final decision was yet to be made on how to rebuild Tango and Sierra T-Hangars. JCAC was considering one new “big box” hangar to replace the two damaged hangars. Later, in discussion items, commission directed staff to nix the “big box” idea. Brad Weisenburger, JCAC chairman, thanked Otto for the research but said the evidence didn’t compel pursuing...

Trailblazers to bring physicality to 2017 campaign

Trailblazers to bring physicality to 2017 campaign By Pete Logan Special to The Gardner News If Gardner-Edgerton High School head football coach Marvin Diener has his way, the Trail Blazers’ 2017 opponents are going to need some serious recovery time after their game nights against GEHS. In recapping the Blazers’ first two weeks of practice — and ahead of Friday’s Gatorade scrimmage — Diener noted this year’s squad’s toughness. “Overall,” said Diener, “our play has been at a very high level of physicality and fast. Those are things we’ve worked hard to get back to, and we hope to see that on Friday night. I’m really pleased with the speed we’re playing at as far as the physicality.” Much of that speed and physicality stems from a defense that returns most of its starting front seven from the 2016 season, including senior linebackers Tyler Henry and Tucker Tribble, and senior defensive end Jackson Flowers. “We think we’re going to be very good up front with our front seven,” stated Diener, “and we have a lot of experience back there. I think we’ll be very good defensively.” When asked if he expected this year’s defense to create more turnovers, Diener replied positively but also mentioned that the Blazers’ defensive strength can base itself in being excellent in something even more fundamental than creating TOs. “We hope so,” said Diener when...

Hometown newspapers chronicle local events; keep public notices local

Hometown newspapers chronicle local events; keep public notices local By Joan Taylor Contributing columnist What do Gardner and Edgerton have that Desoto, Piper and Ottawa don’t have? What do Gardner and Edgerton have that Olathe doesn’t have? A hometown paper. A locally owned, locally staffed hometown paper. The paper has been a fixture in Gardner for over 100 years. Maybe under different names, but the news for these towns for a long, long while. I have been told no one reads papers anymore. Well after seeing some of the spelling online and in phone messages, I guess reading isn’t one of the things people tend to do. If they did maybe they would be more particular in the spelling of thot (thought) or sum (some) or many other words. It appears there is a local faction that wants to be rid of the local paper. What are they afraid of? They want the legal notices to be published in the KC Star or an Olathe newspaper. Legal notices are published so that you — the people — can find out what laws have been passed. Laws have been changed and notices on changes in land, meetings etc. Things you probably need to be aware of. What was onnce vacant land may now become a convenience store? Well I can bet there was a public hearing published if that land...

City’s flood damage may top $2 million

by Rick Poppitz Special to The Gardner News Edgerton city council considered damage from the Aug. 21 flood and took action to accelerate recovery efforts at their regularly scheduled meeting on Aug. 24. Council also heard from the Kiwanis, considered another large LPKC warehouse project, a temporary gravel truck yard for UPS, and adopted the 2018 Budget. 2017 flood – disaster Before the start of business, Don Roberts, mayor, departed from the agenda to spend some time discussing the overnight flooding in Edgerton on Aug. 21-22. “Edgerton did not declare a disaster, because we don’t have to, Johnson County declared it a disaster,” said Roberts. At one point, Edgerton’s public works building was covered by 14 foot of water. 2017 flood – going forward “This is the first time in my life that we were ever totally land locked in. Ever. There’s always been a way out of town,” Roberts said. The city has a crossing upgrade planned for 207th street in future plans, and Roberts said it would have provided a way in and out, if it was there now. “We’re expecting construction to start in 2020 and maybe completion in 2021, somewhere in that time frame, so it’s just around the corner in reality, and something that we could never afford without the industrial development outside of town,” said Roberts. Roberts said there were 1,500 people in...
