“Law enforcement officers responded to the Centennial Bridge Saturday morning after a person was seen with a gun, a Leavenworth [Kansas]police spokesman said.” The leavenworthtimes.com reports that “Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department, said it turned out to be a soldier who was training. The soldier was walking across the bridge while carrying a non-firing rifle.” Whew! ‘Cause if it were a firing rifle, well, the mind recoils from the thought. Even though the Fort Leavenworth museum—celebrating the oldest active United States Army post west of Washington, D.C.—is less than two miles away. “Some people were alarmed,” Nicodemus said. And some people are alarmed that they were alarmed.
