- What might be in store for Tonganoxie in 2018?

- For Tonganoxie, 2017 will be one looked back at as a monumental year. An announced plan for a $325 million Tyson chicken processing plant just after Labor Day weekend turned into a national story. A project that potentially would have brought 1,600 jobs to the area was not well-received by many in the community. An opposition group was formed. The heated topic eventually became a non-issue and Tyson announced that it would not build its state-of-the-art plant here.
