- Miles-long traffic backups shut down the popular Grinter Farms sunflower field Monday afternoon. A vehicle accident midday also contributed to the congestion, according to Leavenworth County Undersheriff Jim Sherley. He said traffic was backed up more than 5 miles from Grinter Farms. He said he was told traffic was backed up on U.S. Highways 24-40 as far west as the Teepee Junction near Lawrence.
