Lunaz 300-mile electric drive sparks new life into classic Rolls-Royces

To ensure that future generations never want for the timeless style of generations past, Lunaz has launched ahead with its all-electric Rolls-Royce restomods. Rarely are we surprised these days at classic cars electrified to modern-day standards, but the proposition of packing all-electric power below the hulking, voluptously-flanked bodies of 1960s-era Rolls-Royces was quite unexpected.

Topeka transportation service takes financial hit from pandemic

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT)- Many small businesses have taken a hit financially due to the pandemic. One people might not think about as often is a travel service, like Cortez Transportation Company in Topeka.

“We got the host fund, the PPP plan and there are different grants we are still applying for now,” said Cortez. “The city grant is still available and the state grant is still available.”
