On Friday, Aug. 18, 2017, crews hoisted a restored biplane over the gymnasium foyer at Wichita East High School. The project, years in the making, was financed by the East High Class of 1976 and other donors.
Shortly after 10 a.m. on Aug. 2, two men in their late 20s or early 30s drove onto Veterans Affairs property in the 5500 block of East Kellogg, police say. They stole a 2008 orange-and-black Suzuki GSX-R750 motorcycle. The two loaded the bike into a white GMC pickup with a distinct bed liner. If you have information about this crime, please call Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111. (Courtesy of Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County)
