Update: Harrisonville Police close investigation on Archie Officer

As of June 30th, 2017 the Harrisonville Police Department has closed its investigation involving the Archie Police Officer who had been taken to the hospital on May 25th, 2017.

After the initial contact by Harrisonville Police Officers, the Officer was transported to a metro hospital for further examination. At the hospital the Archie Officer began exhibiting strange behavior and violent tendencies. 

Medical tests were conducted which did not reveal a cause for the behavior. As the investigation continued, concerns were raised that the Officer may have been targeted or unknowingly ingested an unidentified type of synthetic substance.

After extensively following up on numerous tips and possible leads, the Harrisonville Police Department can be reasonably certain that no criminal conduct occurred. The cause of the events and the Officer’s behavior remain undetermined, but the Harrisonville Police Department can confirm that no criminal charges will be sought. There are still pending lab test results but no significant information is expected to be discovered.

Missouri Frogging season begins June 30th at sunset

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) encourages Missourians to discover nature this summer. One fun and exciting way is through frogging. 

Frogging season begins June 30 at sunset and ends Oct. 31. Missouri has two frog species that are legal game — bullfrog and green frog. Bullfrogs are larger and therefore more sought-after.
The daily limit is eight frogs of both species combined and the possession limit is 16 frogs of both species combined. Only the daily limit may be possessed on waters and banks of waters where hunting.
Daily limits end at midnight so froggers who catch their daily limits before midnight and then want to return for more frogging after midnight must remove the daily limit of previously caught frogs from the waters or banks before returning for more.
Frogging can be done with either a fishing permit or a small-game hunting permit. Children under the age of 16 and Missouri residents 65 years of age or older are not required to have a permit.
Those with a fishing permit may take frogs by hand, hand net, atlatl, gig, bow, trotline, throw line, limb line, bank line, jug line, snagging, snaring, grabbing or pole and line.
With a small game hunting permit, frogs may be harvested using a .22-caliber or smaller rimfire rifle or pistol, pellet gun, atlatl, bow, crossbow, or by hand or hand net. The use of artificial light is permitted when frogging.
For more information about frog hunting, including how to get started and tasty recipes to try, visit MDC online

Fennewald takes Thursday Night Thunder headliner as Striegel, Duvall and Ott also prevail

Johnny Fennewald took the lead from Aaron Poe coming to the white flag and went on to capture the Thursday Night Thunder headliner at Lucas Oil Speedway. (Kenny Shaw photo)

WHEATLAND, Missouri (June 30, 2017) - Johnny Fennewald of Appleton City pressured Aaron Poe most of the way and was running out of time. But Fennewald finally made a timely pass to claim the featured Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Model main event Thursday night at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Other winners on Casey's General Stores Thursday Night Thunder Presented by KY3 for Kids included Mike Striegel (Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods), Joe Duvall (Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds) and Toby Ott (Big O Tires Street Stocks).

A total of 117 cars checked into the pits, including 49 Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods, for the pre-holiday-weekend program. In the annual Kids' Bicycle Giveaway, a total of 85 new, donated bicycles were awarded to youngsters during intermission.

Fennewald earned the $1,000 winner's check in the 25-lap Late Model feature. It was the Appleton City driver's third feature win the Late Model division this season.

Warrensburg's Poe started from the pole and took the lead as the green flag flew as Fennewald, who started inside of row two, advanced into second by lap eight.

Those two dueled, with Fennewald repeatedly trying to make an inside pass, until a lap 20 caution bunched the field and set the stage for a five-lap shootout.

Fennewald finally made a pass-attempt stick, coming out of turn four as he took the white flag. He held off Poe, the first-half points champ, by about four car lengths at the finish.

"Aaron I think actually had a better car than I did," Fennewald said. "That was an awesome race there.

"I saw he was really having to let off going into the corner," Fennewald said of Poe. "I guess you have to do what you have to do to get a win. I tried to keep this car as straight as I can. It worked tonight. It was a lot of fun racing with Aaron there and it took me until the last two laps to get him."

Sixteen-year-old Kaeden Cornell of Willard, Mo., a ULMA Late Model rookie, finished a career-best third. Jefferson City's Chris Cox was fourth.

Aaron Marrant, the 2016 track champion, was eliminated in a lap one crash on the back stretch. That was the first of five cautions in the 25-lapper with three of them occurring before an official lap was recorded.

Striegel grabs B-Mod win: Wheatland's Mike Striegel assumed the lead just past the mid-point when leader Andy Bryant had a mechanical problem and went on to capture his first Lucas Oil Speedway feature win of 2017.

"Man, it's been a long time," Striegel said of snapping his winless streak. "The boss man (car owner) John Stewart, he ain't give up on me all year.

"I got a gift from Andy Bryant," added Striegel, who started outside of row two. "I hate to see guys have bad luck like that. He would have had that race, bar none."

Bryant had built up a sizeable lead over Striegel when the race's second caution flew on lap 11 for contact between first-half points champion Shawn Strong and Kris Jackson, who were battling hard for third. Strong was given the black flag and sent to the pits.

During that caution period, Bryant pulled off with mechanical issues, ceding the lead to Striegel with Mike Hailman of Reeds Spring in second. That's the way they ran over the final nine laps, with Taylor Moore of Bois D'Arc winding up in third.

Duvall earns USRA Mod win: Joe Duvall is only an occasional visitor to Lucas Oil Speedway, but he's a contender when he does roll in. The Claremore, Okla., veteran earned his second Pitts Homes USRA Modified victory of the season, taking command over the final eight laps.

"We're gone on the road a lot racing," said Duvall, a frequent USMTS Modified competitor. "Man, I love this place. Up until the last couple of times we've been here, I've never really had anything to take home. Praise God, we had a good hot rod tonight.

"The cool part is my best friends, my wife and daughter are here. I'm usually calling home in the middle of the night."

Terry Schultz took the lead from his outside front-row starting position and was in front when the race's first caution came out on lap 10. Duvall, who started seventh, had moved into second and was starting to pressure Schultz with Terry Davis in third.

It took only two laps after the restart for Duvall to take the lead with an outside pass coming out of turn four. Duvall checked out from there, pulling away for a comfortable win as the rest of the race went caution-free.

Schultz held on for second with Davis third and Jeff Cutshaw in fourth.

Ott does it again in Street Stocks: Midseason Big O Tires Street Stocks champion Toby Ott kicked off the second half in familiar fashion, driving to his third straight feature victory.

Ott, of Wheatland, passed Bobby Barnett for the lead on lap seven and drove away for his fourth win of 2017.

"I'm kind of liking it," Ott said. "Hopefully, there's more to come."

Ott made the winning pass one lap after the race's lone caution. He said Barnett made the slightest of bobbles and he was able to take advantage by driving past on the inside.

"Bobby was running real good, tight and smooth," Ott said. "On that restart he kind of slipped up a little bit on the bottom. He gave me an inch and I was able to grasp it."

Barnett, of Republic, Mo., finished second with Camdenton's Kenny Carroll taking third.
