Valley Center native helps bring back serial radio
Noah, a Valley Center native who has lived in Bel Aire since 2012, is part of a new group called Kansas Radio Theatre. The group was started by Wichita native Ray Wills, a theater veteran who worked as an actor for 25 years. He was in four Broadway shows, as well as several episodes of “Law and Order" and soap operas.

Man hurt in collision with farm equipment
The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office said Nicholas Ray Orton was traveling at what appeared to be a high rate of speed, left the road, drove through a farm yard and struck a piece of farm equipment.

2 arrested after chase
Sgt. Matt Vogt said police were investigating a suspicious person call in the Valley Meadows neighborhood about 7:15 a.m. when a vehicle fled from the area. The pursuit went south on Meridian and ended on Air Cap Drive in Park City, where the suspect vehicle struck a Valley Center patrol car, damaging it but not causing any injuries to the officer inside.

Man exposes himself at local laundromat
Police responded to a report of indecent exposure. Apparently, a white man in his mid-30s or early 40s with black hair, a pony tail and no front teeth was at the business on a laptop computer. A female customer walked by and noticed that the man had his hand in his pants. He removed his hand and exposed his genitals to the customer.

Street projects moving forward
The second phase of the Tigua Street project is expected to begin in September. It is expected to take 90 days to complete. The council unanimously selected the bid of Kansas Paving in the amount of $733,445.90.
BEL AIRE
Bel Aire recruits real estate team to market Central Park
The city previously employed Crown Three Realty for the job and it hasn't gotten the results council members hoped to get. Representatives of Crown Three visited the council last year and seemed to be baffled by the area's slow growth. At the time, the council was considering termination of the agreement with Crown Three, but opted to ride out the remainder of the contract. That contract recently expired.
