Manhattan Area Technical College presented a free SUV to the family of Kansas National Guardsman Staff Sgt. Michael Tryon and his wife, Arlene, Friday inside the college’s automotive collision repair shop.

Tryon, of Waterville, is a soldier with Battery A, 2nd Battalion, 130th Field Artillery. He recently returned from deployment to Afghanistan with the unit. He previously deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and a Multinational Force and Observers mission in Egypt.

KMAN caught up with Tryon, shortly after he received the car.

“This is gonna save us a lot of money, and it’s very big for us,” Tryon said. “Now we can do other things with the money that we were gonna spend, like going on a vacation with the kids and spending more time with them, as I come off this deployment.”

MATC Automotive Collision Repair Instructor Linn Schroll was happy to assist in the process.

“It is both mine and the school’s commitment to give back to those who serve and keep us free,” he said.

The car was donated by State Farm Insurance and repaired by the students of the Automotive Collision Repair Program at the college.

USD 378 cautions parents to watch for child abductor

(Photo courtesy City of Riley)

Riley County USD 378 Superintendent Cliff Williams has confirmed to KMAN that the school district and the Riley County Police Department are working together after an email was sent to parents about a suspicious man who approached a student Wednesday and tried to entice the child into his vehicle.

According to a letter from Riley County Grade School Principal Teresa Grant first posted by WIBW, the unnamed student was near Riley City Park sometime after school when the man drove up in a white truck. The man told the child he had ice cream back at his home and invited the student to get into the truck.

The student went home and told a parent, who, in turn, reached out to the RCPD.

Grant told parents she has asked RCPD to send over an officer when school is dismissed to help keep her students safe. School officials and staff have been notified as well. Grant added she was not sending the letter to escalate fear among parents. In the letter, she says she wanted them to know what was going on, and ask them to keep an eye out and report any suspicious activity.

Citywide ‘Spring Cleanup’ to begin Monday in Manhattan

(Image courtesy the City of Manhattan)

The City of Manhattan’s annual Spring Cleanup will be April 2-6.

City crews will pass through each neighborhood once, according to the assigned days for pickup, and collect properly bagged and stacked yard waste, tree limbs and branches.

Residents should follow these tips to ensure their items are picked up:

  • Place all yard waste (grass clippings and leaves) in yard waste paper bags, which are available at many local retailers. Any debris in plastic bags will not be picked up.
  • Create separate piles on the curb for yard waste and limbs and branches.
  • Stack branches in a loose pile; don’t use rope or twine to tie them together. Do not mix scrap lumber with branches. Participating refuse contractors will pick up scrap lumber on regular trash pickup days and at regular locations.
  • Have items on the curb and ready for pickup by 7 a.m. on the scheduled day. Crews will check each area only once.

The City will not pick up any items other than yard waste. Participating trash providers — A1 Trash Service, Average Joe’s Trash Service, B&L Trash Service, Howie’s Enterprises, and Joe Mallon Trash Service — will pick up other trash and debris during their normal route but only for their customers. Extra trash and debris must be stacked next to the location of regular trash pickup on the day of regular service. If residents do not have a contract for refuse services with one of the participating contractors, they are responsible for their own disposal.

The following items will not be collected during the cleanup event: major household appliances, tires, batteries, concrete or rock rubble, and construction or demolition debris. Household hazardous waste — paint, thinners, lubricants, herbicides, insecticides — also will not be collected and should be taken to the Riley County Noxious Weed Department, 6245 Tuttle Creek Blvd., for proper disposal.
