Police search uncovers guns, drugs, and stolen property
A search warrant initially issued to recover a stolen pickup resulted in the arrest of a Peabody man and woman, charged with possession of methamphetamines, drug paraphernalia, and criminal possession of firearms. David Orcutt, 61, and his wife Debbie Orcutt, 62, were arrested late Saturday afternoon at their home at 907 N. Locust St. in Peabody.
Fixing ambulance could cost $10,000 plus
Diesel fuel leaking into its radiator will sideline Florence’s ambulance for at least two weeks. Marion’s reserve ambulance has been repositioned there in the interim. An annual inspection by Midway Motors revealed damage in the radiator, EMS director Brandy McCarty told commissioners Monday.
Mr. Moran goes to Marion -- and almost gets a speeding ticket
The tall, slender man wearing a white dress shirt and bold green tie looked out of place among the Saturday morning crowd at Casey’s General Store in Marion, but he acted like he fit right in. Spying a customer wearing a University of Kansas hat, he asked, “Are you rooting for the Jayhawks tomorrow?”
Man sculpts massive statue that moans
Treasure lies hidden in the remote hills that rise and swell near the northwestern border of Marion County. Although there is no “X” that marks the spot, you’d definitely know it if you saw it or heard its song.
Commission votes not to close road
What two weeks ago seemed a foregone conclusion was voted down Monday, as commissioners elected not to close the northern half mile of Chisholm Trail Rd. between 300th and 310th Rds. Commissioners were leaning the other way two weeks ago when Gayland Martens dropped by in advance of a public hearing to voice his desire to see it closed.
Wind farm minutes disputed
Doyle Creek wind farm opponents Bob Gayle and Tom Britain objected Monday to minutes of a previous county commission meeting. They objected to how the commission vote on a resolution to zoning regulations was reported in the minutes.

Positive forward movement
I noticed a group of young women and girls cleaning out a flowerbed along the south side of the city building Monday evening as I headed home from the food store. I think they might have been Girl Scouts and their leaders, but it was dark enough that I couldn’t see for sure. Whoever they might have been, good for them. A week or so ago I asked for some help for the Partners of Peabody Parks group, a group of volunteers who commit to helping keep Peabody’s green public areas watered, trimmed, mulched, and generally cared for during the summer.
Days of yore
