Remember When: A Community Review for Oct. 2, 2019
October 2, 2019
Tonganoxie By the Numbers: 13.6 percent of registered voters actually voted in the Sept. 22 election. The special election resulted in voters favoring Sunday liquor sales. At noon Sunday, the doors at the three liquor stores in Tonganoxie opened for the first time. Crews are scheduled to start melting strips of thermoplastic into the fresh pavement atop a new Leavenworth County Road 1 beginning today. Once that striping is complete – by the end of the week, weather permitting – traffic will be free to drive unimpeded for the entire 5.62 miles between the intersection with U. S. Highway 24-40, just south of Tonganoxie, and the intersection with U.S. Highway 32. Tonganoxie Middle School’s cross country runners had a good time at the Tonganoxie Invitational on Sept. 22 as Warriors runners won three of the four races.

Bonner Springs went with a different look in the second half against Tonganoxie in a weather-delayed football game Friday at David Jaynes Stadium.
