Updated:

SEK POT BUST

  • Labette County, Kansas authorities seize more than 26 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop.  Authorities say the car, driven by Mark Hunt from Benton County, Arkansas, was pulled over for speeding.  The deputy conducting the traffic stop smelled the pot, and began his search.  Authorities say he found the marijuana and a thousand dollars in cash.

CJ ALERT SYSTEM

  • The Carl Junction Police is introducing a new notification system to the city.  The new system will allow Carl Junction residents to sign up for alerts in case of severe weather, car accidents and other emergencies.  When signed up, residents can get direct messages through their phones.  To sign up for the alert system, you can do it through the phone or online. 

SYRIA LATEST

  • A team of international investigators is accusing Syria and Russia of keeping them out of Douma.  The town outside Damascus was the site of a suspected chemical weapons attack earlier this month.  Russia claimed the United Nations delayed the inspectors' arrival in Douma because of security concerns.  The U.N. said it had not.

TAX DAY

  • Today is the last day for filing income taxes without a penalty.  Tax Day is normally April 15th, but that fell on Sunday.  Yesterday was Emancipation Day in Washington, D.C.  All government agencies in the district were closed, including the IRS.  The upshot is that taxpayers need to file by midnight tonight or get an extension.
