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

Buchanan County only has one outstanding precinct remaining and Platte County has 17/28 in and Tony Luetkemeyer has a 1870 vote lead in Platte and a 1,564 vote lead in Buchanan. 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

I know some people are expecting some info on the ballot on Tuesday and I may get to it but if I don't, just vote for Kevin Corlew and vote no on everything but the bingo question because they're all bad ways to change statewide laws and the state constitution... Continue reading

Ladies and gentlemen in a sane world, Kevin Corlew would be cruising to re-election. A former North Kansas City school board member, a two term representative who's represented his "purple" district to the point where he's drawn primary challenges from the hard right, a LICENSED practicing attorney working for one...

In less than two months, our kids will know where they will be attending school in 2019. Have you been following along? I really haven't until now when I was trying to figure out what was going with the meeting tonight. Digging through the district page, I did find one... Continue reading

Buckle up and pay attention folks. There is going to be some homework at the end of this post. Looks like there is finally some development pressure at the interchange of I-435 and Route 45. It appears that there is some substantial rezoning being proposed in the fair city of... Continue reading

Well school has started which means no more swimming at the pool till after 10PM and so now maybe I'll have some time (and interest) to write some stuff. It's been a distracting summer with all the kids, a DIY disaster that I'm in the middle of, and family member... Continue reading

Tomorrow is election day people and 85% of you won't vote but those of that you that do, I strongly recommend you ignore all the mailers and media and vote for Tony Luetkemeyer for State Senate in the Republican primary. Tony lives in Platte County and since most of the... Continue reading

Everyone else enjoying summer? Well we are and I should have posted this earlier and I am sorry I didn't post this earlier but I've got a lot of things going on right now and it snuck up on me. It's Antioch Bible Baptist Church's annual free clothing give away.... Continue reading

I've been doing a lot more biking to work lately. Part of it is because I have a goal to do it once a week. Part of it is because I drive older, late model cars that sometimes need some preventative maintenance or repair. I dropped off the car in... Continue reading

I was a little surprised looking over the Park Hill School Board agenda for last night. The redistricting schedule is going to move sooner and faster than I thought it would. The criteria with which to evaluate the new maps was first released last night and the Board will approve... Continue reading

I've been told thanks to some donations from Kansas City Southern Railroad and JE Dunn Construction Company that this year's National Train Day celebration this Saturday May 19th is going to be bigger and better than all the others. In case you don't know how we celebrate National Train Day... Continue reading
