Kansas cyclists will have a safer time traveling Harvey County’s paved roads after a group of bicylicts partnered with the County to install bicycle safety signs on all of Harvey County’s major paved roads.

“They wanted to know if the County would be willing to participate with them to put signs up because anyone who has biked in Harvey County knows that, frequently, motorists don’t give proper room.  They wanted to know if they brought in sign designs if the County would be willing to help fund t hem and put up signs.

February 14 is one of the most romantic days on the calendar, it is also one of the busiest days for florists filing millions of orders for sweethearts across the nation.

While the bouquet delivered to your lovers door may look perfect, there may be a coded message among the flowers.
