by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — It was one of those weird situations. Wellington was hosting its annual track meet. Yet it was in Belle Plaine.

It harkens back to the 1990s when the Belle Plaine football team played a home game at Wellington.

The Crusader track is getting redone and the old facilities have been deemed unsafe. Thus, big track meets like the high school meet was shipped to Belle Plaine. The Wellington Middle School track meet was held in Haysville a couple weeks ago.

Wellington boys would finish second of eight teams in their home away from home meet. The Crusader girls finished third.

The team scores for the boys were: Mulvane 199, Wellington 130.5, Rose Hill 127.5, Conway Springs 90, Caldwell 81, South Haven 37, Circle 27.5, Belle Plaine 3.5.

City Council tables Westborough subdivision re-pavement project

by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — After a lengthy discussion the Wellington City Council put on hold a petition that would set in motion paving streets in the Westborough Subdivision in the city.

People who live in that subdivision, who also own some of the most valuable homes in the city, have been trying to get their streets paved for years. Their most recent petition came as a result of previous talks with the city.

There were questions about curbing and guttering, as well as questions about financing.

According to an informal agreement the property owners in the subdivision would pay the engineering costs and 10 percent of the total that is just over $1 million. The rest would be financed over 20 years, and would be eventually paid by the city.
