Coffeyville woman killed, 2 from Sedan
injured in road mishap near Niotaze
NIOTAZE — A 34-year-old Coffeyville woman was killed and two Sedan men were injured in a one-vehicle mishap southeast of Niotaze late Saturday night.
Cherryvale city officials hope that recruiting volunteers for the Cherryvale ambulance service will reduce a financial gap between the service’s expenses and revenues.
Speaking at Monday’s city council meeting, fire-EMS chief Ron Davis said the department is down to three volunteers who are able to assist with emergency calls. The volunteer supply has dwindled in recent years but has now caused a financial burden because of the additional stress it places on existing full-time employees and on Davis himself, who fills in for shifts when employees are on vacation or attending other fire and medical needs.

Five years ago this week, Montgomery County found itself up its eyelids in mud and misery.
The Elk and Verdigris rivers hit record flood levels, bulging out of its banks and spreading nasty flood water through Coffeyville’s east side, portions of several Independence neighborhoods, and handfuls of homes and farms up and down the two rivers.
CHERRYVALE — One of the oldest traditions in Montgomery County will return to the local scene next week when the annual Cherryvale Youth Fair is held at shady Logan Park.
The annual youth fair — which dubs itself as the “biggest littlest fair in Kansas” — is the traditional kickstart to the summer fair season. The fair has its origins with the Old Soldiers Reunion, which was held in Cherryvale every summer from the 1890s through the early 1950s.
The American Red Cross will hold swimming lessons for Cherryvale youths on July 9-13 at the Cherryvale Swimming Pool at Logan Park.
There will be two sessions each day: 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., and 11 a.m. to noon.
Registration is required. Call the Cherryvale City Hall at (620) 336-2776 during regular business hours. The cost is $20 per swimmer.
