    I thank you for the updates. Bonner is still without a weekly Chieftain, sure miss Clausie. The city is doing the best as they can on updates if you are on their email list, The Echo isn’t much help unless you’re looking for legals, I wish someone would take the bull by the horns and start an online Bonner Springs edition (Hint, Mary). But until then we love the Wyandotte Daily.
