With the troubled nuclear reactors in Japan there is considerable interest in radiation levels and whether radiation might be spreading from Japan to as far away as Kansas.
Recently Kansas Meadowlark reported the background radiation was about normal in Overland Park over the period March 19 to March 21.
At that time the average background level was about 10.2 µR/hr when “normal” ranges up to about 23 µR/hr.
Background radiation readings were within the normal range from my Overland Park office for the period Saturday through Monday. See chart below.
The average exposure during this period was about 10.2 µR/hr with most measurements ranging from about 6 to 14 µR/hr.
A roentgen (R) is an older unit for radiation exposure but is still commonly used. A millionth of a roentgen is a micro-roentgen, which is abbreviated µR.
The attorney ethics hearing of former Kansas Attorney General and Johnson County District Attorney Phill Kline is scheduled for the week of Feb. 21, 2011 in Topeka.

I’ve been too busy to post new material on my Kansas Meadowlark blog for some time.
Instead of killing this site that’s been online since April 2004, I thought I’d try an experiment with a “Drudge Report“-like site that focuses on Kansas news. Hopefully, this style might be useful to others and less time-intensive to maintain for me.
Take a look at the new site: http://www.kansasmeadowlark.com/.
