Sheriff announces retirement; Republican committee seeks temporary replacement

LYNDON, Kan. – Osage County is in need a temporary sheriff to fill in until the newly elected sheriff takes office in January, after Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn announced Monday she would be retiring at the end of the month.

Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn

During the Sept. 14 regular meeting of the Osage County Commission, Dunn submitted a letter addressed to Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly and county commissioners announcing her retirement:

“I, Laurie Dunn, duly elected Sheriff of Osage County hereby submit my notice of retirement, effective September 30, 2020. It’s been an honor to serve the citizens of Osage County for 39 years and 3 months. Sincerely submitted, Laurie Dunn, Sheriff”

Dunn recommended the commissioners appoint Osage County Undersheriff Jeff Johnson to serve in the sheriff’s position until the newly elected sheriff is sworn in on Jan. 11, 2021. Dunn lost the sheriff’s position to challenger Chris Wells in the Republican primary election Aug. 3, 2020, and the sheriff’s race will be finalized in the Nov. 3 general election.

As commissioners do not have the authority to fill vacant elected county offices, the Osage County Republican Central Committee was notified to call a convention meeting to fill the vacancy. The committee will select a nominee to be submitted to the governor for official appointment.

The committee has since set the convention meeting for 7 p.m. Thursday Sept. 24, at the Osage County Courthouse. The nominee will be determined by a precinct person election and will be presented Sept. 25 to the governor’s office for official appointment.

In response to the short timeline before Dunn’s retirement, the Osage County Republican Committee has sent out a notice to prospective interim sheriffs who would like to be considered as candidates for the temporary position. Here is the notice issued by the committee:

“Notice: Applicants for the office of Osage County Sheriff are currently being sought due to the retirement effective September 30, 2020 of Laurie Dunn as per letter delivered to the Osage County Commission on Monday, September 14, 2020. State statute tasks the Central Committee of the party of the elected official with filling the vacancy. Please direct correspondence to the Republican Central Committee of Osage County, Dana Webber, Chairman, 307 S. Boyle Street, Scranton, KS 66537 or email: [email protected] by Wednesday, September 23, 2020.”

For more information about the selection process, contact central committee chairman Dana Webber as per this notice.

Cards and well wishes are requested by Sept. 25, and can be sent to the Frontier Extension District office in Lyndon at PO Box 400, Lyndon, KS 66451.

Governor announces personal protective equipment program for Kansas businesses

TOPEKA, Kan. – Governor Laura Kelly today announced that the Kansas Division of Emergency Management has launched a new Business PPE Stopgap program, which provides personal protective equipment to businesses experiencing delays in purchased equipment.

“Businesses in our state have experienced immense challenges since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and they need our support,” Kelly said. “By making sure Kansas business owners have access to the necessary protective equipment when they need it, they can not only protect their employees and customers but also make sure they can stay open for business.” 

Governor encourages flu shots to stay healthy, decrease burden on health care system

TOPEKA, Kan. – Gov. Laura Kelly today, after receiving her flu shot from a Walgreens representative, emphasized that because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now more important than ever for all Kansans to get a flu shot.

“Increased flu-related visits to the hospital present challenges for our health care system every year – but will be particularly difficult to cope with while we are in the midst of an unprecedented global pandemic,” Kelly said. “I encourage all Kansans to receive a flu shot and protect the health and safety of our communities, while also decreasing the burden on our health care workers, freeing them up to treat patients who have contracted COVID-19.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control, flu vaccination prevented an estimated 4.4 million influenza illnesses during the 2018-2019 flu season, and stopped 3,500 flu-related deaths.

OCHS graduate, journalist publishes book focused on our world’s future

Eric Holthaus, OCHS graduate and journalist, has written a book that predicts what lies ahead for his children and inhabitants of earth. Courtesy photo.

Journalist Eric Holthaus has donated a copy of his new book “The Future Earth” to the Osage City Public Library and Osage City High School. Holthaus is a 1999 graduate of Osage City High School.

In “The Future Earth”, Holthaus, a leading climate change advocate and weather-related journalist, offers a radical vision of our future, specifically how to reverse the short and long-term effects of climate change over the next three decades. Anchored by world-class reporting, interviews with futurists, climatologists, biologists, economists, and climate change activists, Holthaus shows what the world could look like if we implemented radical solutions on the scale of the crises we face:

  • What could happen if we reduced carbon emissions by 50 percent in the next decade?
  • What could living in a city look like in 2030?
  • How could the world operate in 2040, if the proposed Green New Deal created a 100 percent net carbon-free economy in the United States?

This is a book for anyone who feels overwhelmed by the current state of our environment. Hopeful and prophetic, “The Future Earth” invites us to imagine how we can reverse the effects of climate change in our own lifetime and encourages us to enter a deeper relationship with the earth as conscientious stewards and to re-affirm our commitment to one another in our shared humanity.

After graduating from Osage City High School, Holthaus went on to earn his undergraduate degree in meteorology from St. Louis University and his Master’s in Climate and Society from Columbia University. He is a leading journalist on all things weather and climate change. His work has appeared in BuzzFeed, Rolling Stone, The Guardian, the Washington Post, Slate, Wired, USA Today, National Geographic, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Grist and The Correspondent, where he currently covers climate science, policy, and solutions. He lives in Minneapolis, Minn. He is the son of Les and Janet Holthaus, now of Westmoreland, Kan.

A book signing was planned at the Osage City Public Library, but it was cancelled due to COVID-19. The book is available for check out at the library, 515 Main St., Osage City, Kan., or for more information, call 785-528-3727.
