▪ Dewey’s Book & Bean, MidAmerica Nazarene University, 2030 E. College Way, Olathe, had seven priority violations during a Jan. 15 routine inspection. It was temporarily shut down when it did not cease operations and notify the KDA of the imminent health hazard of no hot water.
It had no priority violations during a Jan. 16 reopening inspection.
Dewey’s officials declined to comment.
▪ Dub V’s Bar & Deli, 122 N. Cherry St., Olathe, had 11 priority violations during a Dec. 12 inspection following a complaint. It was temporarily shut down when it did not cease operations and notify the KDA of the imminent health hazard of a roach infestation.

Five dead rodents were in the backroom. Old rodent droppings, as well as 10 to 20 dead roaches, were in the retail cabinets. It also had 100 to 150 old rodent droppings throughout the facility, including the cooler.
