I've been having so much fun this summer that I forgot my blog password! We've been taking advantage of cheap travel rates this summer because people are too scared or unable to get out of the house. I did need to log in tonight and make sure you are aware... Continue reading

If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say right? I mean I should be able to say something about the Metro North Mall redo with it's lucrative TIF financing package but I don't. I mean I look around at floundering or ho hum retail developments all over and... Continue reading

Typepad HTML Email Died when Costco came into the market unfortunately. Sams owns the ground so its a matter of them being motivated enough to sell it.

Folks, Channel 2 has become must watch TV. Local government has more impact than federal and state politics and it's very easily accessible. Here's the official KCMO Channel 2 website where you can pick how you want to watch it. In my past work life I would watch via the... Continue reading

So apparently we elect a Health Board in Platte County. This Board elects the County Health Director. The County Health Director has the power to order emergency closures. Any comments or concerns sent to the County Commission do not have any impact. Comissioner Wood has been sharing a lot of... Continue reading

Well amazing what a six month hiatus does to average daily page views...... Let me just say it's been one heck of a six months. You wouldn't believe anything I would tell you about it other than as of two weeks ago, I am no longer with KCMO so now... Continue reading

Since the Park Hill School District refuses to use the very expensive and limited viewership technology called "YouTube" to broadcast school board meetings, I'm left to interpret school board agendas. The screenshot below is from the 2017-18 Park Hill School District budget. In the 2017/18 budget process, the property tax... Continue reading

Well things are starting to get real. There are now somewhat detailed drawings showing where the new US 169 Buck O'Neil Bridge might go unlike the bubble renderings completed during the larger I-70/US 169 study. MoDOT has created a narrated online public meeting. It provides some explanation of what all... Continue reading

Sometimes I forget things I post on this site and probably should follow up every so often. This is one of those cases. If you've been reading for a while, you might remember back in 2016 a lot of you commented when KCMO applied for a federal grant to rebuild... Continue reading

Let's be honest. We all have more than we need so now it's a good time to clean the closets and help others. Antioch Bible Baptist Church in Gladstone is having its annual clothing give-away this Saturday and it's an annual event where the Church offers our community free clothing.... Continue reading

Ladies and gentlemen, on this day 28 years ago in 1991 one of the most iconic songs of the 90's (and unofficial song for the Line Creek Loudmouth) was released. Sit back and enjoy Right Said Fred. Continue reading

If you've been up along the north end of Line Creek Parkway or along North Platte Purchase north of 152, you may notice that there's some tree clearing that's underway. That work is being done for extending Line Creek Parkway north of Old Stagecoach Road, widen Platte Purchase Drive, and... Continue reading

If you haven't been to Chuck E. CheeseTM or north of 152 on I-29 lately, it's changing. The new Old Tiffany Springs Road Bridge over I-29 is going gangbusters. If you don't know what I'm talking about, the old narrow two lane farm bridge that used to serve the lost... Continue reading

It's April Fools and I thought about heading a post with a mayoral endorsement for Clay Chastain but with how everyone has their knickers tourniqueted, I thought better of it because very few people understand the concept of satire or humor anymore. I'm guessing maybe 11% of Platte County, 13%... Continue reading

The winter has gone on too long and given me a March cold. However, is supposed to be a balmy 50 or so Friday so you should get outside and come to Happy Rock Park for the groundbreaking of the next phase of the Shoal Creek Trail. Here's a link... Continue reading

Happy New Year! The weather has sucked and I've been busy. Also, I've got a four year old who loves watching Scooby Doo on the couch with me before bed and frankly I'd rather do that than sit at a computer posting stuff. In fact as soon as he gets... Continue reading

Did you get an email reminding you that the open comment period on redistricting ends today at 10AM? I don't have much invested in the ongoing redistricting process because it's just tiring and it really doesn't matter. Reading the socials and hearing from folks, staff says the Board is mandating...

Time for a life hack post before I comment on the hastily rushed (by the Bart Klein led school board) redistricting effort. Long time readers know that I think campaign signs are one of the top three things to have around the house. From keeping ice off windshields to bush... Continue reading

If you haven't been along 152 past the struggling (and under new ownership) Zona Rosa lately you probably haven't noticed that the latest segment of the Route 152 Trail is almost complete. This segment of the trail will go from Amity over towards I-29 and is almost 2 miles long.... Continue reading

Following up on yesterday's NW 64th Street/Southern Platte Pass Trail post, a big connector from the Line Creek Trail is under construction that is going to make a big difference in getting around by bike and for all the folks that live on the west side of Line Creek. Both... Continue reading

In case you were wondering what the construction was along NW 64th Street east of I-29, the 30 year old narrow sidewalk is being replaced with an 8-10 foot wide trail which will remove the gap in the Southern Platte Pass Trail. When this work between I-29 and Strathbury at... Continue reading

I don't think the urban areas will report and swing the race to Claire. Here is where NBC has the race with Hawley up by 216,000 votes. Here's my pro-rated spreadsheet of the outstanding urban areas and if trends hold up she can't make up that deficit. I wish I... Continue reading

Once again the Platte County Board of Elections doesn't post a countywide ballot so I can't tell you who is on the ballot in the Southeastern North Central Tiddlywinks District. You need to follow their link to the SOS website to pull your ballot. Let's get right into it. I... Continue reading
