Hutchinson Police involved in active standoff

Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson says officers with the Hutchinson Police Department are involved in an active standoff near the state fairgrounds.

Hutchinson is a fairly town in Central KS. It is the site of several salt mines. The State stores many records in the mines, and in other areas the natural gas is stored under ground.

It is also the site of old soft red brick from which many building here in South Central were built in the 1800’s. A farm center. Some very large silo’s grace the skyline. And an  electrical power producer.

One night, while flying mail, I flew directly over the electrical stacks and went from five thousand feet through thirteen thousand before I reacted. Some experience. I hadn’t the foggiest the check pilot was directing me over the area. I was on instruments (hooded).

Good Luck to the police up there.

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
