After Tuesday's propane fire near Rose Hill, many people wondered if the record breaking 111 degree heat was a factor in the explosion, but propane experts say the gas doesn't become flammable until it reaches close to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. “The flammability level for propane is right around 920 degrees,” said Mike Tanner, the General Manager at Wayman Oil Company. “ For propane to ignite or for there to be a fire, it's like anything else. You've got to have an ignition source and you've got to have oxygen.” Tanner says people should avoid smoking close to propane tanks and if they smell a leak, turn off the gas supply vauve and call a professional or 911 fro help.

"These shoes I bought for my daughter's wedding and they were the only ones I could find that matched my outfit and they were on clearance and I wanted them and they were just a little too small,” Lisa said. Lisa would like to wear them again. And Cyndy would love to slip her feet into these black heels. “I've even had it professionally stretched and they still cannot get it stretched,” Cyndy said.

We've all had them. That annoying neighbor who lets their dog bark at all hours or maybe that guy who decides to mow his lawn at 6 a.m. every Saturday morning when you're trying to sleep in. We get it. These are not earth-shattering issues or big crimes but rather little neighborhood nuisances that can affect your quality of life.

Did you know you don't have to rely on satellite or cable... to watch TV.  You don't even need those options to get a clear HD picture, if you have an HD TV set.  All you need is an antenna.

In spring, the days get longer and so does the grass. But along with the green, people will also see a little bit of yellow. "We're just a big white building right off the side of the road," says engineering manager Ron Lefevre. And Hustler Turf Equipment, in Hesston, keeps getting bigger. Inventor of the zero turn lawn mower, Hustler manufactures thirty-thousand yellow mowers each year. Mowers are stacked high off the ground and hanging in the air. About 400 people work at the Hustler to make the high powered machine for commercial and residential use. "With the assembly line that we have set up its about every five to six minutes that we have a new mower coming off the line," says Lefevre.

The Confederate Flag and NASCAR. It's the 800lb gorilla in the middle of every race track.  And I don't care if it's Phoenix, Daytona, Darlington or Kansas. They are as much apart of the sport as the cars, the the gas cans and race haulers. And as much as NASCAR wants to ignore it...it's there. And it's a part of their image. Then there is the General Lee. A fictional car from a 80's television show. Is it named after a civil war general? Yes. Does it have a large confederate flag on the hood?
