Editor’s Note: Normally we do not print the names of juveniles in the police notes – those who are under 18. However, we are making an exception for seatbelt violations as part of the “Click it or Ticket it” campaign held over the next two weeks, because it is an educational program on the value of wearing seat belts.

Sumner County report — Sumner County District Court Judge Scott McQuin has ruled that Lindsey Nicole Blansett is fit to stand trial for the murder of her 10-year-old son.
McQuin has ruled that Blansett understood the nature of her arrest after she heard testimony in a closed hearing last week from a Larned State Hospital psychologist. Blansett had a mental competency exam in early April.
On Thursday, Blansett also waived her right to a preliminary hearing for the first degree murder charges levied against her. A judge determines if there is enough evidence to try the defendant in the preliminary hearing.
Attention, Wellington: Police will be checking to see if you are wearing your seat belts starting Monday!May 14, 2015 Cueball
Sumner Newscow report — Beginning on Monday, May 18, and continuing through Sunday, May 31, drivers can expect increased police presence on Wellington city streets as the Wellington Police Department joins almost 150 other law enforcement agencies in aggressively enforcing Kansas occupant restraint and other traffic laws as part of the 2015 Kansas Click It or Ticket traffic enforcement campaign.
This activity is supported by agency grants from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
Drivers can expect strict enforcement of both the Safety Belt Use Act and the Child Passenger Safety Act. These acts require that all vehicle occupants must be appropriately restrained. Law enforcement officers can stop vehicles and issue tickets when they observe front seat occupants, or children under the age of 14, riding without proper restraint. Occupants, ages 14 and over, are cited individually.May 13, 2015 Cueball
