A Tonganoxie family’s natural gas service has been restored after several weeks. Kansas Gas Service restored natural gas Saturday at the home of Scott and Shiela Wogomon in the Jackson Heights subdivision. Scott Wogomon said via email that service was restored after originally being shut off Aug. 18 following concerns that an unknown gas was permeating through ground beneath the home. The situation also affected two other residences in the area and had neighbors paying close attention to any strange smells of gas in the neighborhood.s
