Quitting tobacco early or before pregnancy is best, but it’s never too late to quit. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), when you stop smoking:

•Your baby gets more oxygen, even after just 1 day.
•Your baby will grow better.
•Your baby is less likely to be born too early.
•You’ll have more energy and breathe more easily.
•You will be less likely to develop heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, lung disease, and other smoking-related diseases.

Make the decision today to protect your health and the health of your baby. Get started by talking with your doctor or visit www.ksquit.org

A bittersweet day at the Harvey County Courthouse, as we say goodbye to not one but two familiar faces. Joe Dickinson, chief judge for the Ninth Judicial District, is retiring, and so is his longtime assistant, Barb.

Joe began his legal career by joining Jack Jones' practice in Newton in 1982, where Barb was also working. Joe and Barb have worked together ever since, including as Dickinson opened his own practice and later as he became a judge.

Dickinson was named a judge for the Ninth Judicial District in 2002, and became chief judge in 2015.

"I hope people feel that when they came to court, that they got a fair shake. That they were treated with respect, that I listened to them, that they felt listened to, and that I handled their case fairly. Really, in my mind, that's kind of the No. 1 job description, being a judge, is really to be fair," Dickinson said.

Best wishes to both of them as they enjoy retirement!A bittersweet day at the Harvey County Courthouse, as we say goodbye to not one but two familiar faces. Joe Dickinson, chief judge for the Ninth Judicial District, is retiring, and so is his longtime assistant, Barb.

Using an over-the-counter COVID19 test?

That's great for your personal information. If a positive result appears, you should follow up by getting a PCR or antigen test from a provider or testing site.*

Free testing locations in Harvey County are Gogettested.com by WellHealth at Chisholm Trail Mall or check the websites of Hesston Pharmacy and Harvey Drug & Gift.

*The over-the-counter COVID19 tests are not valid as an official lab result for reporting COVID19 cases to your local health department or Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

👀 Always nice to have a friend watching over you to ensure safe travels 🦋

We recently participated in the You Drink, You Drive, You Lose campaign, which puts increased emphasis on getting drunk and impaired drivers off the roads. We were one of dozens of law enforcement agencies involved in the campaign across the state. Here locally, there were two arrests for impaired driving and two drug-related arrests.

We'll remain vigilant in enforcing impaired driving laws throughout the year. More than 10,000 people in the United States were killed in drunk driving crashes in 2019. Drinking and driving not only puts the driver of the vehicle in danger, but also passengers, pedestrians and other drivers on the road. Please, make safe decisions.
